Desert Divers Dahab
*NEW CLIMB and DIVE PROGRAMME*
The Desert Divers story began more than 15 years ago, when Bedouin owner Said Khedr ventured from his desert home to become Dahab’s first Bedouin to learn to dive. He fell in love with the sea and was treating many of the very first Dahab divers to a unique blend of world-class diving and Bedouin hospitality. His Camel Diving Safaris to remote sites accessed only by camel were especially loved.
