Welcome to the Open Ocean Science Centres!

The Open Ocean Science Centres are private research centres that are located in Dahab and El Quseir, Egypt. We closely collaborate with the Suez Canal University in Ismailia, the i Dive Dahab dive centre, the Roots Luxury Camp in El Quseir and the local community of the South Sinai region.

The centres offering a range of facilities and services for individual researchers, universities and school groups and people interested in the marine environment. Our facilities are including modern indoor and outdoor wet labs with fresh and seawater supply, spacious classrooms with various technical tools and several outdoor seating areas for working and relaxing with wireless internet and power supply.Dahab-charta-logo-neu

The activities of the Open Ocean Science Centres can be summarized in three missions: Science and Research, Education and Awareness and the Dahab Charta, an environmental initiative.

We assist researchers with administrative and organizational matters before, during and after their field trips and take care of all necessary logistics related to data collection and scientific excursions. The centres offering excursions and courses in marine biology for students, school children and divers. We are also actively engaged in various environmental projects to protect what we love, the Red Sea!
