Caves- Dahab. From the hotel, the Hilton Dahab we have close to the marina and dive sites such as Caves and Gabr El Bint. To the caves can be reached by jeep or camel. We prefere and select jeeps- less shaky and less stink.
On-site several groups of divers, able to unpack equipment from cars. Quick assembly and discuss the dive spot. The bar service gives Bedouin tea- ideal for heat. Today, plans two dives- turns coral caves near the wall, go deeper into the sandy bottom at a depth of over 30 meters and back by a large cave. Then the outer reef, back through the caves. Good to have a flashlight, in the twilight will show the true colors of the walls and fish.
After leaving the cave we fall slowly on the sandy bottom- we fly over a coral reef quite a long distance, increasing depth. Quick descent takes work inflator and pressure compensation in the middle ear. The views great. Beautiful reef, lots of fish clownfish, crocodiles and lionfish.
We enter a large cave. Dark here, a flashlight handy are necessary in caves. When near the entrance to the cave there is a little light, you might want to search the bottom. Beautiful nudibranchs- ideal objects for macro photography.
After surfacing cylinder change- at depths of more than 30- 35 meters and 40 minutes immersion time in the cylinders is barely reserve air . Then lunch, a traditional Arabic - shish kebab, kofta, salad . Fresh, delicious and affordable.
But, but- something is happening with the weather . Storm in Egypt, in the Sinai ? During the summer, the holiday Mai weekend? Powerful blows sand, thunder, flashes and rain... more
You have to run- wheelers and camels leave in a hurry dive. And we ? Simple decision- caves and diving, underwater storm will not catch us. What destroyed - we'll find out at the hotel.
