First time ever trying freedive and had equalization problem in my first session where I struggled to dive deeper than 3 meters after multiple repeated attempts.

Thankfully my instructor Michael was very reliable and helpful in this upsetting situation as I was also tight on time. To my surprise I ended up comfortably at 15 meters after just two more open water sessions with him and got my SSI level 1 certificate.

Michael is very knowledgeable and he is great at explaining and demonstrating everything step by step. He pointed out my issues every time in a very precise manner and gave very nuanced adjustments of exactly what I should focus on for the next attempt to which improved a bit by bit after every dive. I would come back to him and do my level 2 and would recommend to anyone wanting to try and also those who are at a plateau.

In the beginning of the summer I was spending nine days at Freedive Dahab in Egypt with the intention to do the Level 1 and Level 2 training and certification.

All the instructors where very good at what they were doing and a majority of the instructors were female. The later part is of significance when you are new to freediving, it is scary in the beginning and a comforting attitude from the instructor makes a big difference!

The staff is very friendly and helpful and help and resolve all issues that you encounter.

I had the opportunity stay in one of the accommodation rooms provided in the dive center, something I strongly recommend as there are a lot of social activities going on at the center.

The atmosphere at the center is including and social, from day one you have friends to socialize with. Considering I was traveling on my own, this was very important.

As a beginner freediver, this center was the perfect place to improve my technique, gain confidence and learn from the instructors' feedback and experiences to develop my own approach and philosophy to the sport. The community was friendly and very sociable. Although I was travelling alone, I never felt lonely. I will definetely return one day.

And I also want to mention one particular experience where I was shown the ultimate demonstration of when a centre actually is true to their soul. My credit card was "eaten" by an ATM due to a very strong downpour of rain (yes it rains 1-2 days a year in Dahab). All the stores and establishments of Dahab were closing, since strong rain in this area is actually an emergency where bulidings can break down. Everywhere I looked for help, nobody assisted me (including the shop that ran the ATM and the hotel where I was staying). Finally I dropped by the center and explained my situation - they called the owner of the ATM and made him try to solve the problem - and they additionally helped me find a solution to finance the last day of my trip. I am very grateful for their assistance and trust, when I was in a very unlucky situation. Thank you Hagar, Waleed and Scott!

I highly recommend freedive Dahab to anyone who wants to improve ones freediving skills. If you’re a beginner like me or more advanced you will train with very professional divers. The school also helped me with accommodation, transfer and responded quickly to all my questions. I will come back!!

Freedive Dahab is a great place to start your freediving journey. I did the level 1 course with them at the end of my stay in Dahab, and ended up wishing that my stay was longer so I could have done more. The pace of the course was good, and the instructors were excellent at adapting their approach to individual students' needs - both patient and encouraging with those who struggled, and helping those who were more advanced to discover their limits. I had problems equalising on the open water session, and was given some very good exercises and the tip to watch Aharon Solomons' video on Frenzel equalisation, which helped me to pass the course. The other thing which must be mentioned is ice bath Thursdays! They have an ice bath on the rooftop, which was a perfect end to a day of freediving - lots of people took part, and you feel cool for the rest of the day even in 35C heat.

This is my second time with Freedive Dahab and I can only recommend it. The staff is professional, competent and very helpful.
The instructors (Ramón & Waleed) are very experienced and are able to teach even complex topics in a simple and understandable way. They pay much attention to every student's needs and provide useful suggestions for improvement, creating a positive learning environment.
The divecenter staff (Gogo & Riham) take care of all administrative aspects of the diving business in a friendly and efficient manner. Due to their good local knowledge they can also give many useful tips about living in Dahab.
The new dive center is modern and clean, has several well equipped classrooms, showers and a lounge area with a pleasant atmosphere.
The accommodation on the upper floor of the divecenter is also highly recommended. The rooms (I stayed in room 4) are spacious and well equipped (fridge, AC, kettle, etc). The shared kitchen and the large outdoor area allow the residents to socialize after a day of diving.

Many thanks to the whole team for the pleasant tand informative time!

I had an amazing time in Freedive Dahab learning my level 1 and 2 free diving courses. It is a sweet place with so many friendly people! We got two T-shirts with Freediving logo printed on them, love it! Our instructor Mike is super professional and helpful throughout the whole learning journey and I’m very grateful to have him as my instructor. Theory classes are always so fun and interesting, we all love the little experiments. Wish to be back again to this place for more training courses

Did my SSI level 1 this month with Freedive Dahab and had never been freediving before. I enjoyed the course so so much!!! Robin has been an amazing trainer, in every way. I've learned a lot during those 1.5 weeks. Especially even though my progress has not been a straight line, he always gave me so many different tips to try out and get me to where I wanted to be. While improving my mood too :)
I had my last lesson with Ania who was also very very helpful!
Thank you so much for this great opportunity ! The community between the divers at the center is really something special too 🥰🌊🤿
