We are a newly opened company based in Dahab, South Sinai, specialising in underwater photography. Among our services are digital underwater camera hire, videography, editing and promotional film work.
We hire out Sea & Sea fully integrated digital underwater cameras and also have a few very high quality analogue cameras for hire.
We also carry out video work with small groups of divers wanting a DVD record of their diving here in Egypt.
Along with doing promotional work for local dive centres and hotels.
A brief history
The owners of Tanked Up Underwater Imaging are Dean and Martin. They have been regular visitors to the Sinai and Dahab in particular since the early 90's.
Both learnt to dive in Dahab, when it was quite different to now. In those days it was part of the backpacker circuit acting as a start point down through Africa or a chill out point before hitting Europe.
Back then nearly all the accomodation was Bedouin run camps and the restaurants were all selling Egyptian style food.
Now there are Indian and Chinese restaurants among others. I'm not really sure that's a good thing, but it does help to have a bit of variety when you live out here!
There have been a lot of other changes over the years. Dahab actually has luxury hotels, paved roads and street lights now. Which makes it easier for all the goats to wander round the town I guess.
Thankfully the spectacular coral and abundant marine life have remained the same due to Sharm being the place with the airport, where most of the package tours go.
With dive sites like the Canyon and the Blue Hole, Dahab has a unique place in the diving world. Both these world famous dives and numerous other sites around Dahab are shore dives. With very little current, and so much to see, these are dives for newly certified and experienced divers alike.
