This is not a luxury retreat, however it is high quality in terms of program and services offered. Our intention is to hold space for you and enable you to flow into the joy of life whilst respecting your holistic health.
Oceanic Ventures has been a Berlin, Germany registered company since 2018. We are a passionate and international team that gathers around water. Please see the team section for more information about us.
This trip is a unique opportunity for humans to connect with themselves by exploring the underwater world. We are welcoming solo travelers, couples and families alike.
A conscious chef will provide food on demand. We will ask you to fill in a food questionnaire to customize the food for you. As much food as possible will be organic and local.
We are limiting the spots to 25 individuals. The goal is to get to know each other and spend a beautiful time together.
We will be having the retreat center Wind Farm for ourselves. It’s an eco-friendly hotel that is owner-led, authentic and located by the sea. It’s equipped with a Yoga Deck and its own private beach access. For single room requests and for families we offer rooms at the Jaz Dahabeya, which is right next to The Wind Farm.
No, all costs are included except the international flights to Egypt. You won’t have to worry about spending any money in Egypt except for tips (bakshish).
Yes, Egypt is very safe. The country is very serious and careful about protecting its tourists. You will be greeted with a smile. Our local guides know the region inside out and have many years of experience in working with international tourists.
We encourage everyone to respect the local Islamic traditions and not to wear super revealing clothes. This is particularly the case for Cairo and the trip to the pyramids. Dahab is a beach town that welcomes tourists all year round. We will be wearing beach clothes most of the time.
Dahab is generally a very windy spot with 280 day of wind per year. In case of no wind, you will be able to go wakeboarding with our African wakeboarding Seif or fly underwater using a subwing. In addition to that you may go scuba diving or freediving.
Most European tourists will receive a free visa on arrival at the airport of entry. The Sinai visa is valid for 14 days. For additional information please get in touch with your local embassy or our team.
Sharm El-Sheikh international airport for arrival. It’s a one hour drive from Dahab. We will organize your airport transfer.
The offered food will be tailor made by a chef. Food will be prepared and served according to your needs. Vegan and vegetarian options are available.
Egypt is located in the Sahara and the Red Sea is the warmest sea in the world. April/May and October/November are the best times of the year to travel to Egypt. The temperature ranges between 20°C (67°F) during the night and 30°C (87°F) during the day.
Dahab has modern and private healthcare facilities. A doctor specialized in diving will be available 24/7 for consultations in Dahab. Healthcare services and medications are relatively low cost compared to Europe, however we encourage you to book an international health insurance.
We ask you to pay a deposit of 500 EUR to our company account. You can wire it directly or use a low cost service like wise.com. We will keep the deposit (you can use it for one of our future events) but will be happy to refund the rest of your payment, if the cancellation is made 30 days prior to the retreat. To finalize booking your spot, please make sure to pay the full amount by that time.
Corona is a topic in Egypt like everywhere else in the world at the moment. You will need to provide a recent PCR test to enter the country. For a recent update about the situation you can take a look at this CNN article.
You are free to do whatever you like as we believe in and encourage freedom of choice. Although the activities are not mandatory we encourage you to attend the daily sharing sessions in the evening to integrate what you learnt during the day. This retreat is about exploring yourself by diving deep into the water.
We are inviting you to take your time to reflect and commit to the activities you choose to book. If you feel like you want to change we will try everything to make your change request possible.
All facilitators and instructors have at least 5 years of experience in teaching and even more time in the water. Every instructor and facilitator is different, and is handpicked because of his/her unique way of bringing you closer to the water and yourself. We invite you to take a look at the overview section of all teachers to choose one that you like. You will also be given a chance to meet all the instructors during the welcome evening in Dahab.
