DIVING IN DAHAB
Make your dive experience extra special
Jump in a pickup truck loaded with your dive gear and our private instructor who will help you select fantastic dive sites featuring fabulous topography and vibrant coral gardens.
Then relax in a beach-front restaurant and enjoy the local hospitality. Divers often comment on the peace that can be found at our dive sites due to the lack of boat noise.
Let Red C Villas introduce you to the “Premium Way to Dive” program, where we take care of all your needs over and under water; you just have to relax and enjoy diving! We are dedicated to making your wishes come true – whether it’s learning to dive, spotting marine life, getting a few trim and buoyancy tips, or capture amazing UW shots with your camera.
Dahab has more than 20 fabulous local dive sites, and some are only 10 minutes from Red C.
Highlights include the coral maze of The Islands and the breathtakingly bizarre scenery at Eel Garden. We are also home to The Canyon, an underwater cavern that starts at 18 metres, and the jaw-dropping Blue Hole with its beautiful coral saddle.
We dive all year round with water temperatures between 20-28 C. The visibility in the Red Sea is usually over 20m, with 10m considered bad conditions.
Your dive guides are highly experienced instructors who know the area inside and out and are experts at spotting the cool marine life. Our rental equipment is new and well-maintained.

We dearly needed a week away from cold Europe, filled with some serious adventures. We could not have hoped for a better hosts than Steve and Summer, who not only provided amazing accommodation in their pristine villas, but also, with eagerness and competence, arrange a fantastic feast of experiences for us and our two boys of 7 and 9:
The first bubblemaker dives for the eldest, snorkeling into the Blue Hole for the whole family, genuine rock climbing with skilled well-equipped guide, sandboarding down giant dunes, delicious Bedouin dinner deep in the desert under a virtual haze of stars, a tough scramble up Mount Sinai and much more.
Steve enthusiastically made sure that we were housed and hosted with great care and that every second counted during our time there. We cannot wait to return next winter and yet again enjoy an active home away from home.
