The town itself is small and laid-back, with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

There are plenty of dive spots to choose from, to suit all levels of experience.

During a week liveaboard itinerary Dahab and Tiran you will explorer the best chosen spots.


Gabr el Bint is a popular dive site located in the Nabq Protectorate, about 20 kilometers south of Dahab.

The name means “The Grave of the Girl” in Arabic, and it is said to be the legendary resting place of a young woman who drowned in the Red Sea.


The entry point “Bells” is a small crack in the reef-table that continues under water like a chimney down to 28 m and can be exited at any depth.

There are corals to the left and right and nothing but blue in front of you.

You will turn to the right as soon as you reach your maximum depth and then dive along a fantastic wall with loads of coral overhangs surrounded by the full variety of Red Sea fish.

It is worth looking into the blue sometimes as there is a possibility to see some bigger fish.

Also do not miss to turn around and look up to the surface and enjoy to see rays of light playing with the shape of the wall.

The dive will take you gradually shallower until you reach the beautiful coral saddle into the Blue Hole at about 7 m. There you can do your safety stop and either swim through the blue or stay with the wall to the right- or left-hand-shoulder until you reach your exit point.

This is a dive-site only suitable for Advanced Open Water Divers.

Attention ! the original blue hole dive is only for technical divers.


Another of Dahab’s world class dive sites.

A dive that takes you into a huge cavern under the sea bed.

The light in the canyon is beautiful and a great spot for Underwater photographers.

The light will impress you even without a camera.
