About
As part of the Sinai Diver family we are able to offer you our well known quality and service for economical prices. If you are looking for a well balanced combination of safety and fun in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with multilingual staff, you will find all this at Sinai Divers Backpackers. Next to the famous dive sites like Blue Hole, The Canyon, The Islands etc. we also like to show you the most amazing dive sites around the National Park of Gabr el Bint with our own boat Ghazala 6. As a real Dahab experience you can join us on a Camel-Dive Safari to Ras Abu Gallum, where we can dive uncrowded sites in the north of Dahab. We offer free Nitrox tanks for certified divers and we arrange free pick-ups from the hotel for you. If you feel for an early morning or (fluorescent) night dive and if you are interested in marine biology, this is the place to be. Pass by! You find us in the heart of Dahab in the middle of Masbat bay.

I love this place. It was my second time in Dahab and doing a course with Sinai Divers Backpackers, and I could not recommend them more!! 


I did my EFR and Rescue Courses with Omar in April, which was amazing.
I then had the pleasure to dive with Eid, Lisa, and Thorsten over the next months (as I kept repeatedly postponing my departure date to be able to stay there longer!). And it has been the most fun and wonderful experience.
They will take you on the most gorgeous dives, are super accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable about all the marine life in the region. My diving really improved while I was with them, and as a much appreciated bonus, their rates are pretty incredible too.
But more importantly they’re just the most welcoming, friendliest and kindest team ever. Best humans. 



Thanks again for everything :)

(And special shoutout to Mohsen, Sherif and Salma, who I didn’t dive with yet but who are awesome! :) )

A perfect dive centre. Thorsten and his professional team take care of the wishes of the customers individually. Each dive is thoroughly planned to combine safety with fun (even during corona times).
The rental equipment is in very good condition and prices are a bargain. They offer boat dives and camel tours to the most pristine dive spots of Dahab for a reasonable price as well.
I have done the rescue course as well as some fun dives there and I am very satisfied and would definitely dive with them again! 10/10

A perfect place for having your first diving experiences as well as for getting top quality for long term divers. The equipment is well maintained and the organisation of the dives ar properly prepared to be safe and also to fit for the individual needs and preferences. The familiar and joyful atmosphere give you a feeling of being part of the diving family there. Competent follow ups after the dives make the experience complete and you leave as a better diver and with a better knowledge about the underwater life. Looking forward to come back! I had a blast!!!

We first joined Sinai Divers in September 2019 to complete our AOW and fell in love with the dive centre and Dahab. We had planned on staying four days but ended up staying 5 months! We're now proud to say we're both Divemasters and the team at Sinai Divers couldn't have been any better. All instructors are extremely accommodating to individuals' needs and are informative and patient, our instructor Thorsten is first class. Khaled on the desk is friendly and is able to organise any request immediately. The drivers are helpful and prompt too! Eid is the best guide in Dahab and surrounding area and will always find something exciting to marvel at underwater and his dive briefings are fun and interactive. We will be returning as soon as possible and feel like part of the Sinai Diver family, we cannot wait to return to explore more of Dahab's underwater world. Thanks again! Jake and Cowyn.

Favourite dive center of all times! They are giving their best, so you'll have an awesome experience. Safe, relaxed, fun and educational. You have Thorsten, trying to acommodate your every wish (boat dive, dive sites...), Eid making you laugh between the dives, but when it comes to diving, giving the most detailed briefings and under water spotting the tiniest creatures. Shaker giving his best, explaining the course material, leaving no question open. Big thanks to the great team, I didn't want to leave.

Sinai Divers is an AMAZING dive center! Every single person who worked there was so friendly and welcoming, it really felt like home! We took an open water course with Mohsen and he is the most relaxed, chill and knowledgeable instructor ever. If anyone is anxious about diving he will set you at ease and teach you how to be self sufficient in the water. I honestly don't know if there is a better instructor out there! Learning from him made me want to make diving a bigger part of my life which I am extremely grateful for! I just left Dahab but I'm already dreaming of coming back and diving with Sinai Divers again.

I recently had the pleasure of diving with this outfit. The service is professional and friendly, the equipment is top notch. Omar and Eid are very good diving guides (Omar is a little more patient than Eid) and I especially appreciated Eid scouting out the underwater landscape for interesting things to see. Thorsten was (sort of ) in charge of the operation and he made what is obviously hard work look like fun.

My only complaint is that there is no comfortable place to take a shower and change clothes.

It helps to be a cat lover as they are clearly the ones in charge.

The staff are super friendly and nice, when it comes to diving and explaining techniques they are very professional and will explain everything.
I had a check dive with them and we revised everything we might need during a dive and practised it before starting the dive.
The quality of the diving gear is really good and clean.
The price is good for the excellent service provided by the staff.
I'll surely recommend sinai divers backpack and i'll visit it again in future dives

I had a very good experience with Sinai Divers Backpackers. I will break up my review into two broad parts, the dive shop and the diving sites

Thorsten was extremely patient and helpful while I was planning my diving holiday amidst the COVID-19 crisis. It took me a while to get here and dive with them, but when I got here I was impressed with what I saw. There is an invisible but effective thread of systems that make them a professional outfit. While there is place for everything and everything is in its place, the dive centre staff aren't moving about with whips in their hand. On the contrary, they are warm, helpful and always up for a chat. They are also good at spotting the small stuff in my experience.I had great fun diving & generally shooting the breeze with Eid, Lisa & Thorsten!

The dive sites are good. Some like the Blue Hole , Canyon etc offer spectacular views & unique swims. All the dive sites have healthy coral with an explosion of life. However I felt that the big stuff like Napoleons, turtles, rays, jacks etc, that one sees in Sharm were missing in Dahab. Maybe it was because of the weather or the time of year, or maybe I'm just plain wrong!

Sinai Divers was just the right choice for the PADI Open Water certificate! Starting from an incredible nice, funny and always helpful team, a relaxing atmosphere (mostly because of the great rooftop with seaview) and a teacher that went beyond just teaching the necessary stuff for PADI. Walid took a lot time to explain me all procedures to take my fear and also always taught according to my necessities after he saw me diving. He was super good organized and you could easily notice his many many years of teaching and diving experience. Thank you all for the beautiful time!
