Dahab is smaller and quieter then it's neighbour Sharm and still attracts a more ‘alternative’ and younger crowd. It has first class shore diving with well over 20 easily accessible dive sites along the coast. It is most famous for its Canyon and Blue Hole dive sites, but it has many others - some arguably better than these most well known dives.
The diving in Dahab is mostly shore-based: the sea quickly drops off to great depths. The more remote dive sites are reached by boat or even better: by camel!
So hop on your camel and get wet!
