Dahab gradually becomes a Mecca for technical divers - the so-called "Tekkies“. There are many interesting deep dive sites available straight from the shore here, where "Tekkies" can reach by jeep. Endless decompression stops can be spent observing life on the reef, instead of "hanging" on the lines in the empty depths. And after the dive, comfortably in the restaurant you can sip tea and breathe oxygen
Also, the atmosphere of Dahab is as if created for "tekkies" - relaxing, unique. Evenings in the traditional Dahab restaurants flow slowly when telling stories and planning interesting dives. Only some diving centers in Dahab provides sufficient and professional support for the tekkies.
