As part of the Sinai Diver family we are able to offer you our well known quality and service for economical prices. If you are looking for a well balanced combination of safety and fun in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with multilingual staff, you will find all this at Sinai Divers Backpackers.

Next to the famous dive sites like Blue Hole, The Canyon, The Islands etc. we also like to show you the most amazing dive sites around the National Park of Gabr el Bint with our own boat Ghazala 6.

As a real Dahab experience you can join us on a Camel-Dive Safari to Ras Abu Gallum, where we can dive uncrowded sites in the north of Dahab.

We offer free Nitrox tanks for certified divers and we arrange free pick-ups from the hotel for you.

If you feel for an early morning or (fluorescent) night dive and if you are interested in marine biology, this is the place to be.

  Pass by! You find us in the heart of Dahab in the middle of Masbat bay.

We did our Open Water course with SDB and absolutely loved the experience. Since we are new divers, we cannot compare to other centers but everyone at SDB made us feel welcome. Our instructor Alia was fantastic: all fun, patience and environmentally involved in one person. I totally recommend this center for anyone willing to become a diver :)

I've been a regular visitor to Dahab since 89 and dived with a number of companies.This is the best; Good management, good instructors, good standards. Perhaps some equipment investment is due....otherwise excellent! Thks Thorsten

Sinai Divers Backpackers is the best, most relaxing diving destination you could possibly think of to visit in the South Sinai. All the staff are super friendly and make you feel at home in the dive centre as soon as you arrive. All the diving equipment + wetsuits are there in ample supply and constantly serviced meaning nothing goes wrong... More
