Choose from a variety of PADI diving courses starting from the beginners Open Water Course up to the Advanced Open Water Course, depending on your preference and experience.

DIVE PROGRAMS:
1. Introductory Dive
This course is ideal for individuals looking at diving for the first time. You will be introduced to basic theory and concepts. Your instructor will accompany you on two dives in the Red Sea and at the end of the day you will receive your Discover Scuba card. These skills can be applied to your Open Water course should you decide to develop your skills further.

2. Open Water Dive Course (get your licence!)
This is the most popular dive course in the world. In this course you will learn the basics of enjoyable and safe diving. The course is divided into three parts; theory, confined water dives and four open water dives, all under the guidance of a PADI qualified dive instructor.

After successfully completing the course, you will be issued a PADI Open Water Dive certification card. This internationally recognised credential allows you to buy or rent scuba gear, dive from chartered boats or at dive resorts all over the world. You can dive with a buddy, independent of supervision within the limits of your training and experience (qualified to dive 18 meters).

With this certificate you are eligible to enroll in a PADI specialty course or the Advanced Open Water course. The duration of the course is 4-5 days with a minimum age of 10 years old.

3. Advanced Open Water Dive Course
Enjoy more adventure in this Advanced Open Water course. There are five different adventure dives, guided by your PADI Instructor, which will enhance your diving knowledge and abilities.

An Underwater Navigation dive and a Deep Dive are mandatory but the other three dives can be chosen from a list of 11 dives in the adventure program. The specialty dives include search and recovery, dive and imaging, and diving a wreck (qualified to dive 30 meters). An Open Water Dive certification card is a prerequisite. The duration of the course is 2 days and the minimum age is 12 years old.

DIVING SITES:
1. DAHAB, SINAI
Dahab, the little Bedouin village on the peninsula of Sinai, in the Gulf of Aqaba is one of the top dive spots in the world. The waters beyond the reefs plunge to a depth of 1,850m and provide the opportunity of seeing marine life within a few meters of the sandy beach.

Dahab has something for everyone with its diving, snorkeling, kite-boarding, windsurfing, camel or horse riding, quad biking in the desert to shopping or relaxing at many of the wonderful beach front restaurants.

Each dive site has a unique charm and character with lots to discover. Water entry is as easy as crossing over the reef flat and descending. Enjoy drifting along the sheer drop-off at the Blue Hole or search for turtles and octopus at the Canyon. Diving is described as a retreat from the every day routine and is a great way to relax on your holiday.

Climate:
In Dahab extremely dry desert conditions prevail throughout the summer with temperatures up to 40 C. During the cold winter months the temperature can drop to as low as 15 C.

Clothing: In the summer, light cotton clothing would be sufficient but in the winter, jackets and warm pullovers might be required.

DIVING SITES:

2. HURGHADA, EGYPT
Another popular dive site is Hurghada, founded in the early 20th century and until a few years ago it remained a small fishing village. Today it is known as one of the top tourist resort areas of the Red Sea. Its unique underwater gardens offshore are some of the finest in the world. The warm waters are ideal for countless varieties of rare fish and coral reef which can be observed through glass bottom boats or by diving or snorkeling.

This area boasts many deluxe accommodations offering friendly and efficient services. You can enjoy dining at one of the many fine restaurants situated along the main street.
