At Sinai Divers Backpackers, our professional multinational team teaches the full range of scuba diving courses from basic to Divemaster level. Our standards are high, and we issue certifications from worldwide recognized dive agencies. The classroom is situated on the first floor.
The confined water training starts on the house reef in front of the Center. During the last day of the course, the reefs in Dahab will be explored. All courses, introductory dives, and check-out dives are offered daily.
The class room
The Dive School at the Backpackers is fully equipped with a TV and Video player. Most classes, however, take place outdoors under the palm trees. The training area is only a few meters from the Dive Center in the middle of the bay of Dahab. So you only have to walk a few meters, and your diving adventure can begin!
The RSEC fieldstation in Dahab
One of the most fascinating experiences as a scuba diver is that you can come close to the magnificent world of coral reefs and their colorful and unique inhabitants. Did you ever get curious about their behavior, how organisms can communicate, adopt techniques, and various symbioses they are forming between entirely different species? We can give you the answers to a lot of these thrilling questions.
With our Reef Biology courses, you have the chance to learn from our marine biologists why Nemo loves to live in his Anemone. You also find out how fishes stay clean without having a proper shower and why corals are so amazingly colorful. You will understand how fishes change color and which techniques they use to protect themselves against predators, and even why some species change gender during their live.
The Red Sea Environmental Center (RSEC) field station in Dahab provides biological and ecological education and services for interested tourists and divers. These unique programs for our guests intend to raise awareness, and leading to higher sustainability is one of our main objectives. The field station is located at Sinai Divers Backpackers in the Masbat Bay in Dahab. We have a classroom with 6 workspaces and an internet connection.
Interested divers are welcome to participate in the reef biological courses & seminars. All the courses can be combined with diving and snorkeling activities. Beginners and advanced divers have the chance to attend an adequate course held at our Dive Center.
