The Blue Hole
If you’re freediving Dahab, you must check-out Dahab’s infamous Blue Hole is a 20 minute taxi ride from Lighthouse and is filled with freedivers from all levels every morning who all know each other, dive together and hang out together.
The submarine sinkhole has the best conditions for freediving in Dahab. The depth of the Blue Hole is approximately 90 meters and is less than a five minute swim from shore, making it easily accessible.
Being that the Blue Hole surrounded on nearly all sides by a coral wall, there very little current, flat surface conditions, complete lack of boat traffic and water temperatures ranging from 19°C to 30°C (66.2°F to 86°F) depending on the season, making it the ideal training ground for freediving.
Inside the Blue Hole, there is the famous arch which is a 26 meter long tunnel, whose top is at a depth of 55 meters. Many freedivers enjoy freediving deep enough to view the arch which is penetrated by light from the other side.
