If you haven't dived in the blue hole you are missing out on a lot. It's really something very difficult to put in words. And pictures don't do it justice.

We had to get there on the back of an old pick up truck but when we arrived it was just the best day of snorkeling ive ever experienced, well worth getting out there for a day

Have dived this site at least 20 times. Blue Hole is just that....a deep blue hole! Unless you're practicing for freehold dives or doing technical deep diving, the Blue Hole doesn't offer much to scuba divers or snorkellers. The attaction is El Bells, about 250m north of the hole. The dive starts at the Bells and ends in the Blue... More

The Blue Hole in Dahab has to be one of my favourite dive sites in Dahab. Starting from the Bells, where the tight entry is positively breathtaking, along the gorgeous wall, the swim across the Saddle, to the spectacular inside, this dive site is truly amazing.

Really worth a visit even if you're just a snorkeller. It's a fantastic place for snorkelling and so much to see; the marine life, the corals, the divers below you and the freedivers descending on their lines. Definately worth a visit.

This is a fantastic Place. Highly recommended but with a qualified tour guide and swim instructor. Don't worry if you cannot swim, there is so much water, you just float. You can rent swim gear, including full body suit, flippers and a life jacket. Its an amazing experience.

I just had a wonderful time snorkeling in Dahab, Southern Sinai, Egypt. I recommend you from the bottom of my heart to travel there. It's such a peaceful and happy paradise with the warmest, openhearted people I have ever met. The beauty of the Red Sea and Sinai Mountains is breathtaking. And all this for reasonable prices.
