Get out and explore beyond Sharm el-Sheikh with this day trip to Dahab. Our minibus will pick you up from your Sharm el-Sheikh hotel and head for the small town of Dahab, about an hour and a half away.
You’ll wander through Dahab Bay with your local guide, who will point out places of interest, give you the lowdown on the best bazaars, and help you orient yourself in the town.
Our base in Dahab is Eel Garden. A five minute walk from Dahab Bay, Eel Garden is set on the shores of the popular diving and snorkel site of the same name. A beautiful reef in Aqaba Bay that is great for all levels of snorkel ability, Eel Garden is the perfect place to spend a day in Dahab.
Your snorkelling equipment is yours to use for the day, so you’re welcome to come and go as you wish. Whether you want to explore Dahab at your leisure or spend all of your time by the water, it’s your call!
We’ll have a fresh local lunch served mid-day, and you’ll have the rest of the afternoon to relax by the pool, snorkel amongst the wicked reef, or head back along the bay into the town.
Our minibus will pick you up from Eel Garden and whisk you back to Sharm el-Sheikh, relaxed and revitalised from your day trip to Dahab.
