Detailed Itinerary 

Day 1

Arrival at Sharm el-Sheikh airport, where you will be picked up and transferred to Dahab situated approximately 100km north of Sharm. In Dahab, you will check into the Coral Coast Hotel on the northern side of Dahab's seafront. The hotel is designed with a Bedouin ambience, offering clean rooms with en-suite bathrooms, balconies and fantastic sea-views. Overnight at the Coral Coast Hotel on a B&B basis.

Day 2

On your second day, you will be introduced to the dive centre located at the hotel. Dive equipment and weights, with buoyancy checks, will be sorted out before setting off on your first dive of the week. Overnight at the Coral Coast Hotel on a B&B basis.

Day 3

While based in Dahab, you will be driven to the various dive sites by jeep or pick-up truck, owned and driven by local Bedouins. Dahab offers a wide range of shore dives, from shallow gentle dives, such as Eel Gardens, to deep technical dives in the Blue Hole. On the programme are dive sites such as the Canyon, Bells to the Blue Hole, the Islands, Coral Gardens, Eel Gardens, the Lighthouse and dependent on weather conditions potentially a boat dive to Napoleon Reef.

During your desert dwelling days, all the meals are prepared by the Bedouins and served in a traditional manner of eating together and helping yourself. The evenings provide ample opportunity to relax and are probably the most amazing part of this desert adventure. Sunsets over the Sinai Mountains, sitting around the campfire and sleeping under the stars with its breathtaking displays of planets, constellations and shooting stars, will most certainly be a soul recharging experience. Overnight at a traditional Bedouin Camp in the desert on a FB basis.
