We are professional divers who have enjoyed diving in the Red Sea for many years, and want to share this delight with you. Lighthouse Divecenter will help you in this. We opened in August 2000 in the beautiful town of Dahab (Sinai Peninsula). If you’re not a diver, the pleasant climate and good diving conditions are excellent opportunities to learn the basics of scuba diving in the Red Sea. We offer pretty much every course you can imagine, guided diving, safaris by boat, jeep and even camel! We aim to provide excellent service to you and to make sure your trip is as relaxing, fun packed, and as great value for money as you would wish. We welcome both individuals and groups.

 

Our staff will share their passion with you, to help you get the best out of your holiday. We are:
