Poor viz inside the hole but drop over the saddle and to the blue and it's gorgeous, I'm sure for technical divers who can go deeper and longer it's amazing.

The Blue Hole has been a dive I had been looking forward to for some time. Easy access and good on site facilities made it every bit what I had hoped it would be.

While you don't have to, I made this a tec dive for safety. It was an incredible experience descending 191 feet and then swimming through the arch. Absolutely in my top 5.

Its a great place that you won't see any where else except in sinai I love snorkling and diving... this place is my favorite... For snorkling its better to get your own equipment since the equipment you rent there ( 10 egyptian pound = 2.5 usd) is really poor... You must visit

It's heaven under water, you could literally forget yourself snorkelling there for hours. Make sure you visit if you ever go to Dahab. Lovely place
