This place was amazing! We went with a small tour group. I suggest you wear a life jacket and all the right gear ( can be hired in most Dahab shops near the hole) even if your just snorkeling. It was so beautiful under the water. It truly cannot be described! Coral and fish of all sorts!

This was my first trip to the blue hole, it was a public holiday so the place was a bit crowded. The Cafeteria along the shore are all the same, just go stay in anyone of them for a quick meal and to leave your stuff there. Then comes the blue hole itself, am not a diver or a swimmer... More

My friends and I had such an amazing time but because we didn't check the weather forecast before heading to the Blue Lagoon, the weather got cold and very windy making it hard to get back in the launch that took us there in the first place and we were forced to take the way back in a pick up...

We were staying in Dahab so just a short drive for us, maybe 20 minutes from our hotel. We got a taxi guy from our hotel and did a day trip. He brought us to get some snorkeling gear which was 40LE for the day, snorkel, fins and mask. He also dropped us to a restaurant he recommended, we were... More

Here is a short description: - full of buses, tourists. - people stand and sit on the mostly dead corals around the hole. - plenty of jellyfish - rubbish and plastic everywhere in the water - the blue hole is a hole, nothing to See when you snorkel there. - heavy smell of chlorine or cat urine. Difficult to tell.... More

You don't have to be a scuba- or freediver to enjoy the Blue Hole. It's lots of fun for snorkelers, too. The fish life are more prevalent on the outside, though. And, the water is pretty chilly in March (21C). There are lots of restaurants and even accommodation. I'd recommend staying in Dahab over Sharm El-Sheikh as it is a... More
