To get there is more easy from Dahab, taxi to Blue hole (40 EGP, then walk north along camel path for 1 hour and a half along the coast, then you arrive at the bedouin camp, Sala and Sabah are one of the last ones furthest north.

Do

Dive! Ask one of the dive operators in Dahab to arrange a camel dive safari to Ras Abu Galoum and you won't regret it. Leaving Dahab at sunrise, you journey by Jeeps till reaching the famous Blue Hole. That's where you meet the team of Bedouin guides and camels. Once the dive equipment is loaded on the camels, the 90 minutes camel ride starts to the first dive site. After the dive, there’s time to chill out on the beach. Lunch is served then the second dive begins. As the sun starts to go down over the mountains you ride the camels back to the Blue Hole and return to Dahab by sunset. .
