Nesima’s on site PADI Diving Centre is one of the most established diving operations in Dahab. We have a reputation for maintaining extremely high levels of standards in terms of service, safety and equipment.

Our PADI instructors teach a full range of PADI diving courses from Discover Scuba Diver to Divemaster. We also offer a wide range of underwater experiences including guided dives and tailored-made diving safaris by camel or by jeep. Additionally why not join us for an unforgettable night dive?

This flexibility plus our professional team of guides and instructors will ensure you get the best Red Sea diving holiday.



At Nesima Dive Centre your diving day starts at the dive centre between 8am and 8.30am. Soon afterwards you will be on your way for the first dive of the day. Generally we return for lunch around 12pm before heading out for the afternoon dive at 1.30pm, returning around 4pm.

Most of the diving in Dahab is from the shore but this is shore diving made simple. Our jeep will transfer you and your diving equipment to the entrance of dive site. Here our crew will help you kit up so all you need to do is enjoy the dive and enjoy your best Red Sea diving holiday!



To ensure the best Red Sea diving holiday ever why not dive some of the more remote sites Dahab has to offer. Why not add to your diving adventure by diving them as a camel safari? Cars cannot access the secluded sites of Ras Abu Galum National Park in the north, or Gabr el Bint in the south but these amazing dives are not to be missed.

For the more adventurous book a 2 day dive safari with overnight camping by the sea. After the diving you will sit around the campfire enjoying a delicious Bedouin dinner under the starry desert sky.

For those people who don’t like the idea of a camel safari, Ras Abu Galum and Gabr el Bint can also be dived by boat.



Some of the dive sites in Dahab are also accessible by boat. Therefore Nesima Resort offers boat trips to the beautiful dive sites in Ras Abu Galum and Gabr el Bint.  Additionally our guests can dive the world famous wreck of the Thistlegorm through our sister company in Sharm el Sheikh, Sharks Bay Umbi Diving Village.

Like the idea of boat diving and want to spend longer on-board? Then book a mini diving safari? You can book anything from just a few days to a full week or more. We will happily help you to plan your safari to included the dive sites in Tiran and Ras Mohamed. Combined this with daily diving in Dahab and experience all best sites in the Northern Red Sea.



If you have not dived within the last 6 months we ask that you undertake a refresher dive for no additional cost.

If you have not dived for over one year then we recommend, for safety reasons, that you make a Scuba Review. This involves of one pool session and one open water dive to refresh all your skills and to rebuild your confidence.

Divemasters and Instructors who have not dived for a long time will be reviewed on an individual basis.


All divers are required to be insured and to complete a self-certification medical form prior to daily diving. Doctor’s clearance may be required, and can be arranged locally if required, before you commence diving.

All divers must ensure that they leave a minimum of 18 hours between the last dive and flight departure (or going to altitude) and we advise 24 hours for guests who do multiple days of diving.
