* Gabr el Bint - Camel Dive Safari
Leaving Dahab at around 07.30 we drive south along the coast to Wadi Shahira, where we join the camels. After a 15 minute rest during which the Bedouin load the equipment onto the camels we set off again and enjoy an amazing 1 hr camel ride along the magnificent coastline. Arriving at Gabr el Bint we rest a little whilst sipping delicious and refreshing Bedouin tea. Once the tea break is over we prepare for the first dive by checking all the equipment and receiving a full briefing from our experienced dive master.
The first dive at this unspoiled reef will really blow you away! There is an enormous forest of Gorgonia fan corals and a huge variety of fish species darting about in between the awesome underwater rock formations.
After a delicious lunch, freshly prepared by our Bedouin guides and a little relaxation time we prepare for the second dive of the day. This is a drift dive along the spectacular drop off where it is not at all uncommon for one to see turtles, rays and even sharks. Naturally there are also a number of interesting corals along the route and also more fish species too!
Once out of the water we have time to relax, drink tea and possibly have a short snorkel whilst the Bedouins pack up the camels for the return journey. During the ride back we can take in the breathtaking sunset over the rugged Sinai mountains and watch as the colours change from golden orange to flame red and then to dusty purple. Definitely a sight to behold.
* Ras Mamlah/Ras Abu Galum Protectorate - Jeep Dive Safari
Leaving Dahab at 08:00 we drive off road to Ras Mamlah, a deserted spot in between Dahab and Nuweiba. Upon arrival we enjoy a reviving cup of Bedouin tea and then get ready for our first dive. After checking our equipment and receiving a thorough briefing we are ready to experience the thrill of a Ras Mamlah dive. The geography of this site has been dramatically altered by earthquakes and the result is truly spectacular; incredible drop offs play host to a massive variety of reef fish and reef sharks are often spotted at this site. It is quite an amazing dive as we can see that the damage done by nature ultimately adds to the beauty of this underwater location. After a delicious 'al fresco' lunch prepared by our Bedouin companions we are ready for the second dive. Once again the sights are awesome, the fish plentiful and the coral, much of it in the process of being regenerated after the damage caused by earthquakes, is unusual in formation. This is the
spot for an adventurous and challenging day's diving.
