view was just amazing under the water cafes were not that expensive i guees it lacked rescue team available
I paid a Bedouin for the ride in and back. In the way we picked several Bedouin kids, which of course, ride for free. It was about 45-minute ride from Dahab. The Blue Hole is impressive to swim and do snorkering. It is a natural pool in the Red Sea where beautiful coral fish come to the surface. Not a... More
Visibility was about 20 metres and the reef is utterly outstanding. Free Divers use the hole as well as divers and snorklers. The waters are teaming with marine life and the coral is just stunning. Watch out for the flies though when having lunch in the restaurants. You'll end up fanning them away with one hand while eating as fast... More
Went to the Blue hole three times this visit with Reef 2000 - A fantastic time and amazing coral and fish to see. Please ignore the negative travel advise this is one of the safest places I have visited in recent years.

It's so famous that you feel that you have to visit. It's great if you are a diver but I'm not and I wondered why I bothered.
To have a 25 metre drop safely enclosed and a step away from the shore is phenomenal for a cautious snorkeller like myself. March was a bit overcast so visibility was down a bit. So were the crowds.
