How can I book a holiday through Diving Dahab?

The holidays on the site of Diving Dahab are categorized in two types: Yoga Holidays and Diving Holidays. Under each category you'll find several options. If you like a trip, you can click on "bookings" to go to the online booking form.

Yes, of course! Special holidays can be arranged for specific groups. Great from teambuilding!

What about cancellations?

With our yoga holidays on our site, we need a minimum amount of participants. If there are not enough participants for a specific date, the trip cannot be conducted. This date is at least 3 weeks before the actual start of a holiday. We will always try to arrange something else, when a holiday is cancelled, but this cannot always be ensured.

What happens when a trip is cancelled?

Holidays can always be cancelled, unless there's a valid reason. This can happen by Diving Dahab, but also by our guests.

Diving holidays can always proceed, unless there's a problem at our location due to unforseen circumstances. In that case, the booking has to be cancelled. All deposits will be returned to you, with a deduction of € 25,- for administrative activities.
