This tour allows you to enjoy your first diving course in the Red Sea, which boasts deep clear blue waters and an extremely diverse marine ecosystem including some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular diving course, and Dahab is an ideal location to learn, with no pool sessions required due to the shallow bay and reefs which give you the chance to see plenty of coral & fish during the course itself. Dahab’s relaxed nightlife tops it off.
We begin in Sharm el Sheikh, where you are met and then transferred to Dahab (we can also extend the tour to start & finish in Cairo, giving you the chance to see the pyramids & sphinx while in Egypt). Once in Dahab, we’ll introduce you to the staff at the Dive Centre.
The Open Water Course is conducted over a 5-day period and, successful completion leads to full entry-level certification to the world of Scuba diving. The course itself is broken down into three sections. These are: (a) confined water dives, of which you do 3, and which are usually done in a cordoned off beach area or a pool close to the beach (b) the theory section, which provides basic information and principles about diving, usually with the aid of videos along with a manual ( c) at least 2 Open Water dives under qualified supervision and guidance. The course is relaxed and designed to be a comprehensive learning experience to help you reach your goal of becoming a qualified diver.
You have a final free day in Dahab to either relax or treat yourself to a few extra dives.

"The crew were tops! Very knowledgable and helpful in everything and being so down to earth! the layout of the truck alone puts all other overland trucks to shame. I had comments from people on the other tours and they all said they were very jealous of our truck. i have enjoyed my time immensely... would do it all over again!"
