CAVE AFTER THE CANYON (DAHAB) - DOWN THE END OF THE CANYON OF DAHAB (51-55M), AT 72-76M, THERE'S A NICE AND LARGE CAVE. VERY FEW DIVERS KNOW IT. OF COURSE, THE BEST IS TO VISIT IT WHEN THERE'S A VERY GOOD LIGHT AND VISIBILITY...

DO THIS DIVE WITH A MIN. 15L TANK AND DON'T SPEND TOO MUCH TIME IN THE CANYON : WHEN YOU'VE FINISHED DIVING THE CAVE, YOU MUST GET MIN. 90-100 BARS LEFT TO FINISH THE DIVE.

HAVE A NICE DIVE !
