    Newbie rebreather diving in Dahab

    l am a newbie classic diver and fancy taking my non-diving wife to Dahab.

    l thought that if l went shore diving l could do a couple of dives and be back at the hotel quicker than if l was out on a boat.

    Chasey suggested Poseidon Divers, l contacted them and they told me that l would need a guide who would need to be on a rebreather as well and because their rebreather guys would be doing the deeper tech stuff, (l only want to do 20-25mtr) they couldn't help.

    So does anyone know of a newbie rebreather friendly dive operation in Dahab or El Gourno?

    Hi Howard

    Simon and Sumi are not at Poseidon anymore as they are back in the UK to get married.

    I am going over to Dahab and am diving with Poseidon in March on my YBOD, i am going over 27th march till 7th April. I was going to do a few rec dives with the wife and then a few gas dives. But my Mum and Dad have now tagged along, as they want to go to Egypt for a long while but dont fancy it alone. So to be fair to the misses and them i will probably only do the rec dives now so i can spend sometime with them.

    I will probably do 5/6 days diving out of the 10 days and the wife will only do about 3. So i will be buddy less for 2/3 days, but if you want to do a early morning dip so i can get back to the hotel by 11-12ish so i can spend some time with my folks we could buddy up no probs if my holiday dates suit yours.

    P.S not botherd as to depth as i have dived most of the deeper sites at Dahab, so 25-30m is fine by me.

    Hey Howie, nothing definate booked yet but I will probably be in Dahab 20-27 March, will hopefully do 3 days diving with some german operation at Iberotel Dahabaya.

    Not going to take the rebreather cos I'm one of those people who flip between OC/CC depending on the depth... 25 is definately OC depth :) I understand all red sea shore diving is limited to 30m by law.

    cheers

    Re: Newbie rebreather diving in Dahab

    Just got back from Dahab and had an amazing week's diving!

    Poseidon were great - operational management just taken over by Ricky (delightful german lady) and Mark Andrews of 205m Yolanda wreck dive fame. Really nice people, couldn't be more helpful.

    To answer your question, I believe Ed Poore has an Inspo there - I don't know whether he'd go out with you or not. If you have an OC buddy and stick to recreational depths then I think they'll let you do it but you'll be given shore cover, so you won't be by yourself anyway.

    They have a haskel and do O2 and He by the litre. They have 10li ali stages which I used on the SSBOD and normal 3li steels. They also do sofnalime.

    Buddy and I had a jeep, trailer and shore cover (also a DM) pretty much to ourselves all week. You pay for gases and then on top, a daily fee depending on whether it's a Rec or a Tec dive.

    Emperor (by the Hilton) and Ocean somethingorother also cater for rebreathers.

    And IIRC, it's all shore diving out of Dahab.

    HTH
