|The parallel programme is designed so that the group can spend the first night together in Dahab when a complimentary meal is offered. The following morning, the trekkers travel to St Catherine (90 mins away) for four days of exploration, trekking and camel riding while the divers stay in Dahab for their Open Water Course. On the fifth day of the programme, divers and trekkers meet up to exchange experiences and then on the sixth day both can participate in a boat trip, the trekkers can receive instruction in snorkeling while the divers can extend their diving. Both groups are together again in the evening. The following day, both groups set off for a day in the desert, trekkers can show off their camel riding skills while the divers can speed around in jeeps.The cost of the programme, excluding flights, is £650. For the divers, it includes the equipment, instruction, certification, meals and overnights.For the trekkers, the price includes all meals, overnights, guides, camels, instruction and Bedouin charges.
Minimum size is 6 for either the trekking or diving programmes.
We are happy to adapt the programme to the interests of particular groups and can make arrangements for those divers who already have PADI qualifications.
