    Diving in Dahab

    by MalenaN Updated Feb 1, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many diving centres in Dahab and I chose Nesima as it had a good reputation and I saw on their website everyone who hadn’t done a dive for six months had to do a check-out dive.
    A very good thing with Nesima is that they never dive in big groups, five divers are the maximum. And the equipment is good and the staff nice. The diving centre is situated in Nesima Resort, and as a diver you can use their pool for free. If you are coming back for lunch they have a nice club sandwich (a club sandwich and a fresh orange juice was 32 pounds). Ten dives at Nesima cost 210 Euro. The diving in Dahab is made from the shore.

    There are some very good dive sites around Dahab. The Blue Hole is amazing. I started the dive north of the Blue Hole, descending through a shaft with three walls and on the forth side the open blue sea full of small fishes. The coral wall we swam along towards the Blue Hole was beautiful and rich of life, there were even small wrasses going into the ears. In the end we swam over the Blue Hole.
    Other good dive sites are the Canyon, Islands, and Golden Blocks etc.
    Lighthouse can be a very crowded dive site, both during the day and at night dives.

    mt sinai

    Mount Sinai, Mount Moses, or as the monks call it 'The Holy Peak', stands 2500m above sea level, the summit a 2-3 hour walk from The Monastery at its foot. According to Christian tradition, this is the biblical Mount Horeb where Moses received the Tablets of the Law within the Ten Commandments.
    There are two ways to traverse Mount Sinai. One involves climbing the 3750 steps, built with rock by pious monks: this is a short but difficult ascent.
    The other, easier way, carved by the Egyptian Authorities in the 19th Century, is an indirect route which can be traversed either by foot or on camels or donkeys.
    Both routes converge for the last 600 steps.
    On the top of Mount Sinai is a chapel dedicated to the Holy Trinity. It was built in 1934 with the materials of an earlier church, erected in 532 by Justinian and repeatedly destroyed. To the north of the chapel is a cave where tradition holds that God put Moses.
    Climbing Mount Sinai is an unforgettable endeavour. To witness the sun rising from the summit, the highest point in Sinai, is an experience not to be missed.

    Equipment: While you get hot during the climb, once you get to the top, it is near freezing. You can "buy" blankets and mattresses to huddle up on.
    Bring a warm jacket, hat and gloves to wear whilst waiting for the sun to rise.
    You can buy food and drinks (hot and cold) at stops the whole way up.

    what goes up, must come down

    Snorkel and diving

    by solopes Updated Mar 1, 2015

    I made snorkel in several places, from Brazil to Thailand, but nowhere I found such a rich and diverse variety of coral and fish. Along the coast several points dispute the privilege of being the best, in a competition hard to decide. My "best" was, probably Blue Hole, but during a full week, living amidst the fishes was a very nice experience
