I live in Cairo and visit Dahab regularly, about 4 times a year. it feels like home now. Got certified with Big Blue when they worked with the international school I teach at to certify a group of students as well. I come back regularly to dive with my husband and friends. Big Blue is a massive resource for us and not just for diving-its easy from the beginning to the end to be in Dahab because of Big Blue. The manager, Mohamed Ali, is great at taking care of details--from arranging transport from Cairo down or to Sharm or being flexible with your needs/schedule. Don't be shy about calling ahead of time and linking with the team for all of your travel questions--they are very connected in Dahab and Egypt.
The dive masters/instructors are all easy going, informative, safe, and skilled. The Red Sea speaks for itself-some of the best diving worldwide for an affordable cost. We saw an octopus camouflage itself into the coral a few weeks ago and also swam with bioluminescent bacteria on a night dive. INCREDIBLE Life Experiences each time we go out. The instructors know the best places to take you to avoid massive tourist traps and you get the genuine experience with Big Blue. I can't say enough. Try it out for yourself!
