With a party of six we spent a lovely diving holiday in DIVE URGE – Dahab end October 2012. Two of us were disabled divers who enjoyed adapted attention. Apart from splendid guided dives (thank you dear Kimberly) it has to be noted that DIVE URGE’s prices included a perfect transport from and to the airport of Sharm el Sheik....

We love helping our disabled guests get diving, but you were all an inspiration to us. It was a real joy and privilege to get to know you all. I hope you are able to return and can also recommend us to other disabled divers.

My family and I stayed at a house near to Dive Urge so this review relates to the course rather than the accommodation. My son wanted to go diving whilst at the Red Sea but wanted me to accompany him. I had only had one previous diving experience and was quite nervous and panicky throughout it. There are many diving...

As any good traveller would I used trip advisor as a main factor in deciding which Dahab dive centre to use. As you'll see the reviews are universally excellent... so does it match up in real life? You bet it does! This was without doubt the most relaxing dive holiday I've ever had (& I've had a few). The staff...

I booked Dive Urge as my first holiday alone to get some sunshine and do my PADI Open Water course.
