Best dive sites in Dahab

The Canyon - Just outside Dahab, this dive site is an open underwater cave at 14 - 22 meters below the surface. It's wide enough for divers to swim through, offering some unique topography. There's easy shore access through a sandy lagoon, and once in you can expect anemones, butterfly fish, unicorn fish, puffer fish, octopus and blue spotted rays.

The Blue Hole - The most visited of all Dahab diving spots, this deep dive site is best accessed via Bell's due to the fact currents always run from north to south. Expect dramatic drop offs covered in corals and home to many little bright orange fish. 

Eel Garden - Right in the city center, just a few minutes from the promenade, this site plays host to huge colony of garden eels. Look to the sandy bottom, where these interesting creatures are swaying in unison with the waves. For the best light, visit early morning or late afternoon. 

Lighthouse Reef - Also in the center of Dahab. A super popular spot for divers and snorkelers alike, this shallow wall of fringing reef offers a wide variety of corals and fish. Often turtles can be spotted here, as well as blue spotted sting rays. 

Napoleon Reef - An excellent dive site for marine wildlife enthusiasts! With top-notch visibility and the chance to see huge grey stingrays, turtles, eagle rays, eels in addition to the rest of the Red Sea's usual inhabitants, make time for at least one dive here.

Snorkeling in Dahab

For qualified divers travelling with snorkelers, Dahab is a great choice. As most diving is done from shore, it is often possible to dive and snorkel the same sites simultaneously. So, no need to separate the group as with some other diver-centric destinations! Top sites to visit include The Canyon, The Blue Hole, Eel Garden and Lighthouse Reef. 

What to see

The reefs in Dahab are full of colour! Expect clouds of orange anthias, schools of fusilier, yellow tailed barracuda, blue triggerfish, pufferfish, scorpionfish, lionfish and countless bluespotted rays. A large colony of garden eels can be seen swaying drunkenly from their holes in the sand, and it's possible to see turtles and torpedo rays too. For the macro lovers seahorses, frogfish and ghost pipefish are regularly spotted here too.
