Note that the airplane tickets constitute 1/3 of the price. If you stay for two or three weeks, the price will not increase that much. Also, you can receive equipment rental and diving package discounts for longer stays.

This is a trip retainer, not a final offer legally speaking. This is payment needed for securing your spot during the trip and then paying for expenses.

The final price might differ. This is a cost estimation based on our trips to Dahab in October 2022 and February, March, October 2023. Note that some prices might differ. Currently, there is an exceptional exchange rate for EUR to EGP (Egyptian currency). Please be aware that the final cost might differ depending on airplane ticket cost, food, SIM card, insurance, etc. And therefore, you might be asked to pay some more. We do not anticipate that, and we do not want that, but this is absolutely beyond our control.

Only partial returns are possible. If we buy a plane ticket for you or reserve a hotel in your name, we will not be able to refund those costs to you!
