March 2010 Were in Dahab when it got bombed. Locals were fantastic. Really good diving, especially if you like shore dives. Blue hole was awesome (except having to walk past the divers graveyard to get into the water) A real Abyss .... great place and great people.

February 2010 Did OW at Dive Urge with my partner, friendly flexible & laid back, clean accommodation in quiet area, and we had an instructor to ourselves which was a huge bonus. All shore diving. Dived Lighthouse, Moray Gardens, Eel Garden (their house reef) and Islands, all sites full of sea life. Had slight ear trouble, specialist doc at Dahab's Hyperbaric Medical Centre was extremely helpful and inexpensive at 15 Euros.

May 2009 Could do with some clean up dives every now and then, but overall a nice place to go. Will probably visit again

April 2009 we were last in dahab in 2005, the damage to the coral around the main dive sites of dahab is very noticeable. It is a real shame to see, there is some good diving to be had, e.g gabl el bint but not in the main time. We dived with black rock @ the corelia, who were fantastic, small groups and highly recommend. www.blackrockdivecentre.com

April 2009 Bells, Blue Hole and Canyon are absolutley fantastic dives. Worth doing the Thistlegorm, Ras Mohammed and Gabr el Bint too. Stayed and dived with Penguin Divers who are really good. Great place for a dive holiday!
