To all divers who travel to Dahab for a diving holiday,I suggest you take a look on Big Blue web site and ask for a good package deal. You do not have to pay extra laggauge for your diving gear because they give you a good price all included and they have very good diving equipment for hire. Thanks guys

I had the pleasure of taking my Open Water and Advanced at the Big Blue and was very pleased with the experience. The company is professional and dedicated to what they do while remaining laid back and friendly. My instructor, Walid, shared his passion for the underwater with me and it didn't feel like he was just going through the... More

My partner and I have just spent a week diving with Big Blue. Amazing visibility, variety and colour. The equipment, staff and our dive instructor (Omar) were excellent. As a returning diver, they spent the time to review my favourite sites and suggest new ones, distance no object. We were extremely lucky to be there in low season and have... More

Big Blue Dahab is located in the friendly little old hippie town Dahab. It's a very nice place to stay and relax, and that is just the atmosphere you find at Big Blue Dahab. Friendly, professional and always willing to help to be at your best service. For me it's a little oase to return to once in a while.
