Description

3 days diving Dahab + 3 days trekking

This 1 week package combines a 3-day deep desert trek with lots of time to relax by the sea and dive. It’s a favourite with friends who love diving Dahab, but also find themselves getting curious about the desert!

Diving Dahab

Start with 3 days diving Dahab’s beautiful dive sites. With more than 15 dive sites, you’re spoiled for choice.

There are plenty of dive sites for every level of diver,  but some of our most famous sites like the Canyon and Blue Hole are Advanced dives (30m depth). If you’re an Open Water Diver who would like to do these dives, just add the Advanced course upgrade to your diving.

Deep Desert Trekking

We’d love to introduce you to the deep desert! It’s an amazing place, with a lot more variety than most people imagine.

Trekking from Wadi Arada to Ein Khudra Oasis is 3 days by camel (or 4 days inc St Catherine). The trek starts just 1 hour from Dahab, and takes you onto the El Guna Plateau through slot canyons and into a palm-tree oasis. You can ride your camel or walk alongside, most people do a bit of both.

    Trekking in the desert was magic We went trekking with Desert Divers for four days, and it was everything we hoped for. We hiked with another couple, two guides and three camels through spectacular desert country. Fraez was a good guide, and an excellent chef, and we spent hours drinking tea around a fire while he made excellent Bedouin meals. There is no light pollution in the Sinai and we loved the night skies. We also went diving with Desert Divers when we were back in Dahab. I took a refresher course with Jackie and then he took my husband and I diving and it was just spectacular. Tanis, the owner, was available to answer questions both logistical and about the area. We were very pleased at our interactions with Desert Diver.

    “Scuba diving and Desert trip in Dahab” Great diving, El Bells is a must for any scuba diver, you just have to experience it and the trip in the wadi with authentic Bedouin food and bread was an unforgettable experience. And all at such economic pricing ! Definitely going back.
