“Great dive site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a very good dive site, particularly if you start from El Bells, follow the wall, and finish in the Blue Hole. We did it three times this way and loved it every time. Spending an entire dive inside the Blue Hole might get boring but doing it the way I described was thoroughly enjoyable. Watching tech divers and free divers at the end of each dive was very interesting and something a bit different from your average dive. Worth a visit for sure.

“go early to avoid the crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

The blue hole is famous for its diving and snorkelling. I went down very early and was in the water before 8. It was amazing to have the ocean to myself and see all of the sea life up close and personal. The mountains make for a fab backdrop as well. A MUST DO when in Dahab!

“Busy place for a reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

I loved the location and so many fish. I like to snorkel and this was great for that too. The camels were hilarious as they grunted and "talked" at the end of the day. I would recommend bringing your own gear to have the most fun for the day.

“Truly Amazing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Dahab!
For anyone who doesn't know what is the Blue Hole, It is a large 70 m wide hole within the coral reef going down to 80 m and with a 30 m long arch going to the open sea on its bottom. with Fish of all sizes and colors!

but what I really liked about it is the amazing feeling you get while you're descending in the blue with no ground underneath, it feels like flying!

The one thing I really didn't like about the place is that there are no showers there, I ended up buying bottled water and washing the salt water off of my body using it.

but it was an amazing experience over all and I sure would do it again soon

“Breath taking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Nerves about the blue hole were shaking me beforehand; the site nicknamed divers graveyard. Loved it - perfectly safe to dive if you stay within PADI limits and is truly breath taking.
