PADI recreational courses from the absolute beginner Scuba Diver/Open Water Diver, right through to the Dive Master level are taught here at Big Blue.

All of our recreational dive courses are PADI certified, and lead by highly trained, experienced PADI Professionals who will support you all the way for success.


For the younger water enthusiast in the family, we offer Junior Courses and special,  small sized equipment for children, such as regulator small mouth pieces designed for smaller mouths. We also have suits of all sizes, small tanks and equipment.

All this and more is possible at Big Blue Dahab. So now is your chance to take the plunge…..become a qualified diver, further your diving education or just blow some bubbles in a taster dive.


Surprisingly all dives in Dahab are shore based, but that doesn’t mean less fun. In fact, riding in jeeps, or occasionally by camel to the dive site really adds to the experience and no time wasted sailing out to the dive destination. Also shore diving is great for the nervous beginner – walking into the water instead of jumping off the side of a boat into deep water, provides comfort and confidence and a great starting point.


No matter what your situation is; a first time diver, limited time, travelling with non divers, parents of young children or babies without a babysitter – don’t let any of this stop you. At Big Blue Dahab we have a solution and will do our best to help put a plan together that suits you and your needs, so you can still get in the water and have lots of fun learning.

Once qualified you can also join our daily guided dives exploring some of the most spectacular dive sites in the area.
