I heard about Dive Urge from a friend who went out with his family and raved about Dive Urge. So I chatted with Lynne via email and organised a week diving. Lynne helped simplify getting through the inbound scrum at Sharm airport, had me collected from the airport, and organised a great week of diving for me. Lynne, Helal and... More

I have never been diving before and chose Dive Urge as the place to complete my Open Water PADI for my 40th. From the moment I spoke to Lynne to enquire before booking our holiday to the follow-up emails I have received since, the team made us feel welcome, cared for and home-from-home. The team at Dive Urge could not... More

Just had a really peaceful week at Dive-Urge, our 2nd time there. It's such an easy-going relaxed and friendly place made so by the great team there. Did 10 dives with Ahmed, including bells and blue hole, and felt safe and well-guided at all times. The mountain dinner was a treat too as, as well as the great food and... More

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.

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

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
