“Safe and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This was my first time snorkelling and diving and I was introduced to Sea Dancer by friends who said it's the best dive centre in Dahab. They were right and it's easy to see why:

First and most important - they are fanatical about safety.
Secondly - you couldn't hope to meet a nicer more enthusiastic and friendly bunch of people. All the instructors are fantastic and don't mind what level of diving you are at or how scared and nervous you might be.
Thirdly - if you're not actually diving but your friends are its just a really nice place to hang out with a lovely sun deck at the top where you can relax, use wifi, sun bathe and watch Dahab life going on below.

I did two try dives whilst in Dahab, one from the dive centre and one from a boat trip. Both were amazing experiences and Elvira and Emad were great when I got nervous - but once you see the world under the water you totally forget about being nervous. I was on holiday with friends who are advanced divers and they also had an amazing experience with sea dancer.

You have to complete a medical questionnaire before being allowed to dive and they are very strict about investigating anything that might present a problem for diving. However, there is a dr in Dahab who is an expert in diving medicine and the dive centre pretty much has a direct line to him! I spoke to him on the phone to check my medication would not be affected by changes in pressure and my friend had to visit him to check out problems with her ears. The clinic is just round the corner from the dive centre so it is easy to go and see the dr. If this sounds like hassle don't think that - it is very easy to see the dr and you can then dive with total peace of mind knowing that you are safe. Much better to do this than to go with a dive centre that doesn't care so much about safety.

I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Sea Dancer and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to dive, however experienced or not. Steve, Ashraf, Elvira and Emad - thank you so much, I had an fantastic time (despite being scared of the fish!!)

“Friends I had yet to meet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

As a nervous diving virgin I was looked after extremely well with total attention given to me. My dive instructor was very patient with me and so calm and reassuring. Sea Dancer is a friendly place to hang around and chill out. Thanks to Elvira and all the other staff for making me feel welcome and looked after.
