The Diving Center
Our diving center Lagona Divers – Dahab North has been located on the beach of Tropitel Dahab Oasis since the end of 2006. The family-run diving center is designed for up to 50 divers. When you enter the base you will find yourself directly in the reception, where our team will take care of your check-in. In addition, you will find a small shop where you can stock up on merchandise. For diving training, our instructors have a large classroom with all the necessary equipment at their disposal.
A large wash-out basin ensures that all divers have enough space to rinse their diving equipment after the dive. Next to the rinse tank is our equipment room, which is divided into a wet room and a dry room. There you can store all your equipment after your dive trip until the next trip. After the dive, our cosy Bedouin corner invites you to round off the day. You are welcome to enjoy a free local Bedouin tea, which we serve there.
The house reef is only 50m away from our diving center. To avoid damaging the reef top, we access the water via a short jetty. Directly in front of the jetty and towards the north you will find a beautifully overgrown compact reef, which slopes down to 50m at a 45 degree angle. Towards the south, the reef is rather shallow and a 10m wide sand lagoon runs parallel to the fringing reef at a depth of 12m. Behind this lagoon, a gently sloping plateau leads out into the open sea.
The plateau is covered with coral throughout and offers something for everyone. Turtles and larger barracudas are often seen. Of course, the more familiar fish species of the Red Sea are also represented. For example, lionfish, pufferfish and many species of perch. Macro lovers will not miss out either and can go in search of snails and shrimps. Experienced divers may enjoy unguided dives on our house reef, subject to certain regulations.

Since then, he has also introduced countless beginners to the sport of diving.
In 2008, he took the next step and successfully passed the CMAS** instructor exam. Four years later, he crossed over to the PADI and SSI associations.
