Eritrea Diving Center information

Lonely Planet review

If you want to learn to dive, you can contact the Eritrea Diving Center on Taulud Island. Ask for the helpful English-speaking Nasreddin Osman, who can organise the usual Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) courses. Open-water courses (US$360) can usually be completed in four days. For those who just want a taste of Eritrea's underwater world, there's a 'Scuba Diving Introduction' for US$50, which runs over a half day.
