As the 71 yr old ( Solo traveller and novice diver ) in Attakat review above- I totally agree (Thanks Kat-keep in contact ! ). Dahab is a magical place. Truly " You arrive as a guest- depart as a friend " - I now number 3/4 of the local people as valued friends and look forward to a re-union from my next time at Dive U. Dive Urge and all their peoople are.... pretty good as well. A special word for Kimberley- without your help it would have been so much harder to complete the E-learning. Ahmed has the patience of Job- while pushing you all the time to do your best, he has to be congratulated for my achieving the Open Diver status.
Tip 1 You get so very much more from your stay if you can do the E-learning before you arrive.
Tip 2 Allow Dahab stay time after you have your pass,make time to dive for fun/ recreation.
Tip 3 Eat as a local, my recommendations >"King Chicken & sea food at "Sea B/ The Mermaid"
Tip 4 Dive Urge hire out underwater cameras / You concentrate on your diving, while Ahmed tales the pictures. They may not be Blue Planet class but hey , you are right there alongside Ahmed.
I will try so hard to come back to Dive U to get my next/ Advance Open Water qualification.
mike j - Forever grateful.
