The Dive Urge Family

Dive Urge, has been established for ten years now and is a family owned and run business. My name is Lynne and I am English, and a PADI MSDT Instructor and I set up Dive Urge with my hubby, Helal (Egyptian) ten years ago. Our three kids; Nadia, Hebba and Sameh were all born here in Dahab and go to school locally. We have lived and raised our family here for more than fourteen years and have seen Dahab grow up around us.
This puts us in a unique position to offer well thought out and safe family holidays
