I had a great time at Dive Urge, from my first enquiry to the last day of my holiday I felt well taken care. The whole family and the team made me feel very much at home, even little Sam. Thank you very much to you all for the warm welcome. Further, the room was comfortable and accessible; the food... More

Dive Urge could not be more different from the huge, impersonal, never-leave-the-compound, all-inclusives at Sharm El Sheik. We knew we were in for something special when wonderful Assistant Manager Coco went out to the shops to buy us the tonic for our duty free gin within minutes of our arrival. The fact that we knew all the staff by name... More

me and my son Philip (nearly 15) chose Dive Urge because Philip wanted to do PADI Advanced Open Water and I wanted to make sure about safety and low numbers. This is exactly what we found, he could completed Advanced and do other fun dives, most of them 1 to 1 with the instructor and I felt safe for him.... More

Our 5th visit in under 3 years says it all... we just love Dahab & Dive Urge! don't be put off by Foreign Office advice or anything else. It's perfectly safe & super relaxed. I'm a diver & my wife isn't but we both enjoy our time here. Staff & owners super friendly & nothing too much trouble. Recommend 100%.

This is an excellent family place to stay with our 2 year old. The diving is also fantastic with a personal experience, not the mass "get them in and out experience" you will find elsewhere. Dive Urge is great and the reason we just keep coming back...We have just booked for 2015.

Having never undertaken a scuba holiday before I was eager to find somewhere beautiful, friendly and, moreover, safe and professional. Dive Urge certainly surpassed all these criteria. Everything the club provided was of the first order, be it the fantastic dive instructors, who never failed to make my holiday fun and engaging; the well-thought out and delightful accommodation; safe and...

My partner and I chose Dive Urge to learn to Scuba Dive after reading the great reviews. I do a lot of travelling for work and sports so I didn't really have any pre-conceived ideas about what to expect. This turned out to have been the perfect place to learn to scuba dive.

This is the place to go in Dahab: a family run guest house for divers. Personal service from Lynne and Helal, safe and engaging dive instruction from Ahmed, and an atmosphere of unhurried tranquility on a beautiful stretch of beach. Avoid the formulaic hotels of Sharm and you won't be disappointed.
