The perfect place for a dive trip to Dahab, away from the masses. But everything is still reachable by foot! If you like it calm and quiet this is the perfect place. Very friendly staff and good service. The Restaurant is also very good so that we nearly never left the place. Of course except for diving with the wonderful Achmed who looked after us and showed us the beautiful reefs of Dahab.

I didn't stay at the resort, but I did learn to dive with Dive Urge. Dive Urge is a great place to learn to dive; they have a great team of friendly and professional instructors. By 'professional' I mean in their adherence to PADI standards etc and their commitment to your safety and enjoyment while diving - these not just certified pros who couldn't care less, it's a great dive team. The instructors introduce themselves in good time before diving, discuss your dive level with you, what you would like to see - as a dive centre it's an exceptional operation. The rental equipment is top standard too - a great boon is that they have women's suit as well! Not many dive centres do - so you're extra comfortable (as a lady, perhaps the men too if it's your thing…). All the BCD's and reg's are modern and kept clean and look as new. In fact all the equipment is kept to a high standard. Their rinse tank is kept clean and the Dive Urge boys are very helpful post-dive if you're cold and tired! All the equipment is kept safe and dry between dives, with care taken with divers own kit. All of this as a package helps you feel safer in the water and inspires your dive confidence in the water as everything back at the centre is kept tip-top. All the staff at Dive Urge have plenty of time for you - nothing is too much trouble. Guests are happy and the centre does their best to encourage people to mingle with their relaxed atmosphere, everyone is very happy to be there. Having now dived at a few dive centres and resorts, I really can't recommend Dive Urge highly enough for the professionalism of instructors, care for their customers and high standards of equipment and hygiene throughout. The customer service is brilliant, and you don't have to adhere to a dive schedule set by Dive Urge, the guides chat with their groups the day before, or even before the dive, to decide where they would like to dive (weather permitting). Dive Urge is all about your diving experience, and they do great job. Thanks to everyone at Dive Urge for a great experience learning to dive!

We do take great care to provide fun safe diving and with our 4-1 ratio of divers to guide, we are also reducing impact on the environment as well as enhancing your diving experience. Thank you so much for your comments :)

When we looked at booking Dive Urge one of our primary concerns was how our children would get on - we have 7 year old twins. What swung it for us when we booked was that Dive Urge is a family run dive resort.
The first thing to say is the layout is lovely with the rooms off a couple of large landscaped courtyards with plenty of spaces to spread out and relax.
They sorted out a babysitter for us during the times we were diving and the kids took to her straight away, when we disappeared beneath the water they would be happy snorkling above with Helen - thank you Helen!
It was so nice staying somewhere whose owners also have a young family so understand your needs, nothing was too much trouble. They would touch base with you during the day to make sure everything was ok and they gave excellent advice on what might be appropriate excursions/activities for them to do and what might be too much. We and in particular our children loved Dive Urge - they were very relaxed running around, playing with the tortoises, swinging upside down in the hammocks, snorkling off the private beach, burying themselves in sand and attempting to play pool in the games room! And because Dive Urge isn't too big you can relax in the knowledge that they can happily run off and play, are perfectly safe and are always pretty much within ear shot of us or a member of the Dive Urge team.
Needless to say the diving was excellent and the instructors have an uncanny ability to spot even the most camouflaged fish!
All in all it was a very personal, friendly and stress free experience that we had and we and our children could not have been looked after better - so thank you Dive Urge!

On another note my wife fell ill with a stomach bug during our stay (not from anything she had to eat at Dive Urge I hasten to add) but the care and attention the owners took with her was very impressive. They arranged for her to be taken down from the mountains where we were on an excursion and had a doctor waiting for her when she arrived back at the resort. He put her on a drip, got her rehydrated and after a good nights sleep she was back to normal the next morning!

We are proud to be able to offer great, safe and relaxed family dive holidays and as you pointed out, with our family here, we know really well what works and what doesn't. Loved having you and your family here and hope we see you back here sometime soon.

Had a fantastic week at Dive Urge. My dive buddies have said it all - a really smooth set-up, everyone really helpful and friendly, great accommodation, excellent food. And a special mention to Ahmed - who gave a great sense of security, and did so much to enhance our enjoyment every dive. The ratio of max 4 to a guide makes a big difference to the experience. And some amazing dives, too; each one better than the last....

Great value too - esp with airport transfer, endless drinking water, and really enjoyable mountain dinner/entertainment all within the package. Boat trip was great value too; with a really excellent spread of food at lunchtime on board.

Have now booked up for a week at the end of March - which says it all. Really looking forward to it!!

First time was in April this year as a Novice diver - 70 yrs plus - Solo traveller and I qualified as an Open Water Diver. I intended / hoped to return in 2013 but somehow I found myself back for 9 nights in November 2012. This time completed the AOW course but other things do not change . Achmed remains .. just great and as patient as before ,the Dive Urge team and experience is consistently first class. I fully hope / expect to take a diving holiday in 2013 and almost certainly will return to Dive Urge to reinforce my skills and enjoy the wonderful local dive sites , especially : Islands - Gebr el Bint and the Canyon

Dive Urge cannot be bettered for the new Diver or anyone with the OW/AOW qualifications who wants to enjoy / relax in the magical laid back resort of Dahab.

Returners or 'urgers' make up a big part of what Dive Urge is about and it is thanks to guests like you who support us. We are proud to be able to deliver a perfect holiday each time and our number one position in Trip Advisor is thanks to our loyal customers.
