Just returned from a peaceful week in Dahab, with Dive Urge. What a fantastic week of diving and fun. Nothing is too much trouble and we even had a speed boat trip with overnight in the desert and dawn diving to boot! If you can this extra is a must! The trip back was very James Bond. This is our...

I was given a weeks diving holiday, alone, from my fabulous wife for my birthday. She could not have found and reserved a better place for me. I was in a garden room which was really clean, comfortable and calm. The staff are just amazing at doing everything they possibly can, and even more, to provide you with the best... More

If you want a home away from home, and to feel part of the family then Dive Urge is the place to go! I have travelled solo and scuba dived in a few destinations but Dive Urge is definately the top of my list. The staff are absoulately lovely and always happy to help. Ahmed, the dive instructor, is a... More

we were finally able to return to Dive Urge this time for our kids to become qualified divers. It has been four years since our last trip and yet we were immediately greeted by familiar faces and welcomed back into the family. The operation is always looking for new things to offer and doesn't disappoint. Both my girls were incredibly... More

There is no finer reward and compliment than a family bringing their kids to you to learn to dive with you, we feel it is the highest accolade and were very honored to have you all back for the fourth time! More

If you, like me, want to avoid the crowds and dive safely in pristine waters with a very personal service, Dive-Urge is certainly the best operation I have encountered so far in 15 years of diving. For the record, I took two of my children, 13 & 15, both competent swimmers, but who had never dived, over 9 days in... More

First family holiday together for years and Dive Urge couldn't have been a better place to go. The staff we're extremely friendly and we felt like we had been part of their family for the whole 10 days. We could not have asked more from the staff! The rooms were lovely and big and always clean and the diving was... More

Although we did not stay at Dive Urge (we had local friends to stay with) we were given the use of one of the rooms to change in while we did 14 dives. I will never forget my first dive for over 6 years as my last experience had made me very nervous. Under the extremely careful guidance of Ahmed,... More

Went during my gap year with my boyfriend and had an unforgettable trip- really comfortable and friendly. The food is always something to look forward to and the things included in the accommodation package is well worth it. Dive sites are beautiful and our instructor Ahmed was patient, kind and I learnt so much. Dahab itself is a great place... More

That I persevered and learned to love diving after a rubbish Open Water course taken in the Caribbean is down entirely to Lynne, Helal and the team at Dive-Urge and I have been a regular visitor to Dive-Urge since it opened. I have tried a few other locations in between but like the bad penny I keep landing back at... More

Our two teenage boys completed their Padi Open Water and our German instructor was fantastic and very patient. My husband and I went to each dive site and snorkelled, which was also brilliant - the coral in the less tourist areas was just amazing. The food was wholesome and well cooked and the staff were very friendly. Our accommodation was... More
