My mum and I did our PADI Open Water at Dive Urge. I had a great time! The room that we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious with a sea view and air conditioning - which was a relief! I loved playing pool in the magnificent round ceiling room with the ancient ornate lamp hanging from the roof. The... More

There is no purer truth than that from kids.......so a big thank-you to Dylan (aged 11) for describing your holiday here and why you loved it so much. Our kids enjoyed your company very much and we look forward to welcoming you and your mum back here soon. 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

The fact that you and your daughter, knew everyone's name here says it all and we have to thank you for mentioning our key team members, but to be fair you and your daughter were easy to look after and we enjoyed every minute you were here.

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.

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.
