Blue hole is a beautiful and amazin spot with a great underwater life. Just to bad that a lot of tourist don't care about ruining the corals.

Blue Hole is the best place to go snorkeling in Dahab! This wasn’t the first time snorkeling for our family, but the best one! This was like safe swimming in a fish tank. Absolutely fantastic, you will not be disappointed.

One of the best diving sites around the world. Scuba divers can have several dives there. Beautiful Marine Life. It is eco-friendly area. Yet, there are nice drinks and food that are offered by cafeterias there

Amazin here, you get to see so many species of fish, the sea was lovely and warm, even with my wetsuit on was like a warm bath. Everyone was friendly, it used to be busy, but i have noticed a decline in numbers recently. Hope to return december.

Easy and relaxing dive, no current, excellent visibility. The entry point at El Bell is very interesting and can be challenging for novice diver. Best to visit early morning before the crowd, Nothing spectacular on the wall itself, but the saddle area is very beautiful, teeming with colourful anthias but don't expect something big.

I think it is the best place for Snorkeling in Dahab, the coral reefs are very clear and beautiful, there are many colorful fish. The blue hole is too deep for diving lovers.

it was a nice place to visit, but it equipment and supply are poor so it'd be nice if you prepared everything with you, don't miss anything, in addition take extra water for shower in case there is a shortage in water.

clean and clear blue water .... a marvelous snorkeling experience ... if you are going to rent the snorkeling tools rent it from the shops around the blue hole not from Dahab who will take a huge unreasonable amount of money while it is really cheap on the blue hole ... also you can rent the mobile underwater case but...
