    Great diving and climbing I booked the PADI Open Water Course with a friend late October and we had an absolutely amazing time with Desert Divers! Starting from weeks before we arrived, they were the best centre we contacted in terms of speed of communication, details provided in their responses, and value for money. They arranged a car to pick us up and drop us off at Sharm El Sheikh Airport and they helped us book accommodation in a great location very close to the centre. Everyone we met at Desert Divers is really very friendly and helped us have a wonderful vacation in Dahab. The course was excellent - Tarek was our instructor and he was very professional. He makes sure to give new divers the time to master the skills they need while scuba diving, makes you feel confident even on your first open water dive, and more importantly NEVER risks the safety of his students. Even if you know the theory he always makes sure to explain the key concepts and go through everything with you. We booked a fun dive after we finished the course, which was also excellent. On our last day, we booked a half-day climbing trip with Said and we had a wonderful time in Wadi Qnai. The trip covers the transportation and the climbing gear which was in excellent condition. We are not experienced climbers so we went up the beginner routes, but we already look forward to going back and climbing for a full day or even more. Tanis, Said, Tarek, and everyone at Desert Divers, thank you for a great time in Dahab!

    Great hosts and memorable diving experience I completed my PADI Open Water diving course from Desert Divers Dahab. My wife also joined me for the dive for fun, although she was already licensed for Open Water. Our hosts, Tanis and Said, were very welcoming and considerate. This was our first dive in the Red Sea and it was great. I will definitely recommend this place.

    I did my open water with desert divers! Good equipment, friendly staff, good instructor! Next time I visit Dahab, I'll definitely return. I enjoyed my time there. I also did the rock climbing and I had a lot of fun!

    'Diving with Desert Divers Dahab' Totally fantastic week with Claire and Anemie as highly skilled and very pleasant diving instructors at the Desert Divers! So much fun (and concentrated reading!). And staying at Marine Garden is superb with excellent service and so close to the sea. We need to come back and do some more diving and maybe desert trips:-) Dahab is such a nice, friendly place, no tourist rush . Highly recommended!!

    “Great diving experience” Instead of paying a lot of money for my PADI Open Water course in Denmark, I decided to do it in Dahab - and what a good decision. The staff was very nice, professional and made me feel welcome from first minute. As a diver student, there is a lot of things to remember, but the instructor made sure not to rush anything, made sure everyone on the course felt comfortable and that was very nice indeed. All in all a very good experience, and I for sure will return to Desert Divers and Dahab :-)
