Circle Divers Dahab

#1 - Circle Divers Dahab


A circle stands for safety and security… and nothing is more important when you go diving! We are one team, one big family. We aim at high quality, personalized diving and we hope to give you an amazing time and an experience that lingers long in your memory.

Circles are omnipresent in our lives. The moon, the sun, and the earth are circles. Even the blood that flows in our body is in constant circulation to maintain life, and the bubbles we exhale while diving also look like circles. In other words: Life itself is a circle. 

Dahab was once an isolated coastal village inhabited only by the local Bedouin. Dahab's isolated location, idyllic setting and laid-back atmosphere make it a favorite destination for all who discover it.

Located approximately 80 km north of Sharm el Sheikh, today’s Dahab has evolved into an "alternative resort" – the home of independent and adventurous travellers, but also with some more up market resorts and hotels. For most people, this mix is part of Dahab's charm as it means "everyone is welcome".

"Dahab (Egyptian Arabic: دهب) is a small Egyptian town on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, approximately 80 km (50 mi) northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh. Formerly a Bedouin fishing village, Dahab is now considered to be one of Egypt's most treasured diving destinations. Following the Six-Day War, Sinai was occupied by Israel and Dahab became known as Di-Zahav (Hebrew: די זהב), after a place mentioned in the Bible as one of the stations for the Israelites during the Exodus from Egypt. The Sinai Peninsula was restored to Egyptian rule under the Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty in 1982. Egypt's former president, Hosni Mubarak helped the arrival of many local and international tourism companies, hotel chains, and the establishment of many other ancillary facilities has since made the town resorts a popular destination with tourists. Dahab is served by Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport. Masbat (within Dahab) is a popular diving destination, and there are many (50+) dive centers located within Dahab. Most of Dahab's diving spots are shore dives. Dahab can be divided into three major parts. Masbat, which includes the Bedouin village Asalah, is in the north. South of Masbat is Mashraba, which is more touristic and has considerably more hotels. In the southwest is Medina which includes the Laguna area, famous for its excellent shallow-water kite- and windsurfing."
Scuba Seekers Diving Centre

#9 - Scuba Seekers Diving Centre


Scuba Seekers was born to introduce people to the world of diving in a safe, fun and educational way. We believe that diving should be a lot of fun, but that teaching people to be good divers isn’t something that should be rushed. Dive training takes the time it takes and education about the underwater environment is just as important as learning about the equipment and skills.

At Scuba Seekers every member of our dive team shares the same vision – We want to become the pioneers of quality diving, environmentally friendly and life changing underwater experiences in the Red Sea.

We strive to serve our customers with the most technically secure equipment and with a highly talented and professional team. Our guides and instructors aim to deliver  life-changing diving experiences, while preserving and developing our local Red Sea environment.

We want every one of our students to leave us as a happy, skilled, knowledgeable and, above all, safe diver.

As well as diver training, we also offer guided dives, where we explore all the sub aquatic adventures, that Dahab has to offer and regularly run diving safari trips, catering to divers of all levels.

If you are an instructor or dive club, and want to bring your groups to Dahab, we can offer our facilities and help with logistics, accommodation, equipment and whatever else you need.

Dahab Divers Lodge

#12 - Dahab Divers Lodge


PADI Dive Resort based in a quiet location right by the Lighthouse in the heart of Dahab.

Just a few minutes from the main bay with all its restaurants and bazaars. The perfect location for Diving in Dahab!

Once you check in at Dahab Divers Lodge you will get an orientation briefing of Dahab and the Dive Center facilities. The sitting area under a wooden shade with ceiling fans, surrounded by some beautiful plants invites the divers to stay, chill out and have some good laughs and conversations after a great day diving. Another opportunity to relax, write your logbook or study some dive theory, is the Bedouin seating area in front of the small kitchen.

We limit the amount of divers to a maximum of six per dive-guide and we make sure that everyone in the group has about the same level of dive experience.

Our facilities provide new and well maintained dive equipment and gets serviced regularly, just like our on site BAUER compressor.

A big rinsing pool with separate pools for booties and regulators as well as lockers and hangers for your dive gear are provided. Furthermore we offer a 24 hour security service.

The spacious classroom for the dive theory sessions is equipped with fan, TV and dvd player, PADI materials and a whiteboard.

The experienced dive team at Dahab Divers Lodge is not only FUN and knowledgeable but considering safety first, all our dive staff are medic first aid trained. We are also extremely approachable for any questions or requests, diving- or non-diving related, to make sure your Dahab holiday is just what you were looking for.

The location close to the Lighthouse allows us to kit up in the Dive Center, load the gear on a trolly and in no time we can descent and enjoy the stunning marine life of the Lighthouse Reef. This is especially comfortable if you have not been diving for a while and need a Scuba Review, or if you are participating in a PADI entry level course, as there is a perfect confined area to learn or refresh your diving skills in a safe environment with pool like conditions.

Also non- divers are welcome to join us on a day out to just chill out in the sun in one of the laid back Bedouin Restaurants. If you are interested in snorkeling you will certainly get a separate briefing from our dive professional and also some advice on techniques and where to find the most interesting marine life.

We at Dahab Divers Lodge are passionate about diving and the underwater world and want to share this passion with our guests. We are aiming at educating our divers to become the advocates of this beautiful and fragile environment. We encourage safe diving techniques, responsible behavior, awareness and sustainability in and out of the water. We frequently organize beach and underwater clean ups inspired by PADIs Project A.W.A.R.E (Aquatic World Awareness Responsibility and Education).
