Responsible tourism: Red Sea diving holidays

Environment

We employ Egyptian, Bedouin and Nubian workers here, they are our chefs, team members, dive instructors, safari guides meaning that a wider range of people benefit from our guests. We feel a massive responsibility to the environment we work in, as it is so precious.

We are not flighty dive club owners just looking to make a fast buck and move on. Our home is here in Dahab and we are raising our family here too (now two girls & a boy) since 1997.

All our children are very aware of how precious this environment is and as they are bi-lingual, they are able to chat away to the locals about why it is wrong to fish, why not to throw rubbish in the sea etc which, when coming from a kid, is most effective.

We pick up any rubbish we see both underwater and above water too...on every dive.

The very fact that we dive with small numbers (4-1 ratios) also means we can instruct more effectively about environmental impact issues like, good buoyancy, tidy equipment (not dangling and hitting reefs) no sand kicking (stopping the reef feeding). We also are passionate about our fish and pass on lots of aquatic information to each customer. We believe you will leave us a better, more responsible, non coral bashing, informed, and environmentally aware diver and person.

We recycle all our waste; food items go to our goats, bottles, cans and plastic are collected here in our recycle bins and taken to re-cycle units in Dahab. Environment notices are posted in rooms and welcome folder to be more aware of the local best practices.
Cotton shopping bags are provided in each room to remove the need for plastic.
We encourage our guests to bring their own bottle and re-fill it at one of our water points, saving a massive amount of one time plastic use.
We are asking our guests to not use standard sunscreen which is causing harm to the reefs and advise the best types to not cause damage.

Community

By employing local staff we help a much wider number of people...here in Egypt most families still rely on the main breadwinner, so by making sure this person is employed and well paid, we ensure that whole families, which rely on this income are supported too. By paying them a fair wage and passing any tips on to them, we are not taking advantage...our staff are like our family to us.
We recommend the local restaurants, because as well as having our own, we want our guests to go and enjoy meals at one of the may locally owned places.
Our diving groups often go out for the day, which means utilizing a beach cafe, so we encourage our guests to eat and drink there too as they are using the facilities.
Our overnight safaris use local boats and boat operators and once at our destination we use local transport, shelter and food preparation.
We support local environmental causes such as the famous 'Don't mess with Dahab' campaign aimed at reducing plastic use.
We encourage guests to buy locally made items rather than imported items and there are so much talented crafts in Egypt, sold in the local gift shops. We offer a small discount upon showing they are from our club, via their key fob or business card.

Everything the club provided was of the first order, be it the fantastic dive instructors, who never failed to make my holiday fun and engaging; the well-thought out and delightful accommodation; safe and well-maintained equipment; and the friendly, caring and enthusiastic staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place to anyone thinking about a scuba diving holiday. Read full review

The diving was fantastic. This is definitely the place to go if you want to dive and snorkle. Itís a great location too, near the main stretch but far enough away to allow you to enjoy your peace and quiet. Read full review

The dive centre we stayed in was a family run business owned by a local man. The majority of staff employed were locals, including the dive instructors. The hotel was keen on recycling plastic bottles, and encouraged guests not to get plastic bags in local shops. Read full review

There couldn't have been a better choice for a diving centre. I spent a week with the team and the whole week was memorable and exciting.
