  • Sharm El Sheikh Eagle Divers

    Diving Trip to Dahab

    A small and quiet town about 80 kilometres north of Sharm el Sheikh, its most popular with divers for the magnificent Canyon and Blue Hole dives although other dive sites can be visited upon request. When diving in Dahab we depart Sharm by private bus around 7 am, expecting to reach the first dive site by around 8.30 am. The first dive is normally the Canyon before using our surface interval to travel along the sandy beach roads to reach the Blue Hole. Because of the high altitude of the mountains which we pass through driving from Dahab back to Sharm, after diving we head in to the centre of Dahab for a fabulous seafood dinner and a spot of shopping. This trip is great for divers and non-divers as there are the opportunities to snorkel at each site
