    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 :-)
