Diving in Dahab is essentially shore-diving. With few exceptions, you'll be driven by jeep along the coast to 'gear-up' at waters edge to start your dive. Dahab offers around 30 dive sites. Some of the best dive sites are located just a few miles north of Dahab and offer easy to relatively easy shore access.
Eel Garden - Popular site for learner divers. Maximum depth is 17m with a sandy bottom. Good also for snorkellers.
The Light House - Located just offshore at the Lighthouse in Dahab Bay, this site features a sloping reef extending north.
The Bells - A cliff dive only for the relatively experienced. A true vertical wall, full of overhangs and fissures, with lots of swim-throughs and cavelets.
Blue Hole - A dive site with the greatest attraction lying not in the blue hole itself, but on the rich sloping coral reef garden on the outer lip of the hole. Entry to the site is through a large lagoon in the reeftop! This lagoon is the 'blue hole'. Strict depth limit of 30m, except for those with technical diving certification. Popular spot also for snorkellers.
Canyon - Takes its name from a long, narrow canyon which runs north to south from the shallow reef just offshore to depths of around 50m on the reef slope further out. Access to the site is through a shallow 3m lagoon a little way from the shoreline.
