Boat Dives

Daily boat diving to the virgins of NABQ National Park
FISH AND FRIENDS operates its own daily boat.
NABQ Explorer is the new way of diving the hidden reefs of DAHAB which are not accessible by shore or even by camels.
These beautiful dive sites are located in NABQ National Park south of Dahab and offer virgin reefs with wild fauna and flora.
Our crew is carefully handpicked with skills and experience. We will guarantee safe diving practices, environmental awareness, mechanically well maintained boat, friendly service, clean surrounding and good food.
Among the operations entrusted to NABQ Explorer were the entire logistics and support for South African Numo GOMEZ team when he established his World Record of Depth Diving in June 2005. It was a highly technical operation which lasted 12 hours and 20 minutes of Red Sea time: 20 minutes to reach the expected depth and 12 hours to surface in order to decompress. Official measurements revealed he reached a depth of 318.25m, the length of the Eiffel Tower, including the aerial at the top!
However, you won’t have to go that deep!
