This was the first Deep Dive

Location: Dahab, Egypt

Dahab is a small Egyptian town on the southeast coast of the Sinai desert, appr. 80 km northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh. It's a well developed area, famous for its excellent shallow-water kite- and windsurfing and of course its diving.

This is truly a magical place, under the radar, where I've been going almost yearly to since 2017. Every time I'm here, the energizing and creative vibe fully inspires me. Clarity comes out of the vast peace and quiet this place holds.

The word Dahab is Arabic for 'gold' and is possibly a reference to the geographic locality; gold washed down from the desert mountains may have accumulated on the alluvial flood plain where the town was built. The name may also be a reference to the colour of the sands to the south of the town itself. Some locals attribute the name to the colour of the sky just after sunset.

Dahab is just next to the most famous freediving spots: 'The Blue Hole', where many records have been broken again and again.

Meet your teachers

Dive teacher and mentor


Dive into a world of peace and serenity with Andreas Peper, a visionary diving teacher who goes beyond the conventional boundaries of 'freediving'.

For Andreas, this is not freediving: it's letting go of anything you've ever known about swimming and the ocean. The work he does brings the opportunity of a way of Being that can be instilled everywhere in life.

He's a master in letting his students experience tranquillity: in the stillness that is created, stress and fear neutralize. True life begins.

Known for his unique and holistic approach, he refrains from labelling his craft as mere freediving. Instead, he invites you to embrace an experience that goes beyond just the physical act of submersion.

It's a journey into the depths of your own consciousness, where the waters become a canvas for self-discovery.

Holding your breath and exploring the depths is part of it; even more so unlocking a reservoir of inner calm and discovering a sense of freedom beneath the surface.

Embark on a journey toward personal freedom, and a profound connection with the world beneath the waves and yourself.

A state of Being from which we can step into deep, grounded and authentic leadership in life.

Leadership and mindset coach


Join the transformative journey with Christophe Vandeputte, performance coach and host of Hoofdzaak podcast.

Explore limitless potential as he shares profound insights on achieving a quiet mind, laser-focused state and embodied leadership in your life and business.

From this place of openness and curiosity: you 'empty' yourself to see new possibilities about your life you never thought were possible.

Christophe's teaching expand beyond theory; it's born from a personal odyssey of breaking free from the shackles of his own mind.

A former captive of anxiety and fear for years in his adolescence, he intimately understands the struggle of overcoming mental limitations.

His story is a testament to the power of resilience and the possibility of rewriting your narrative.

From this personal triumph, Christophe has become a trusted guide for leaders and CEOs, including luminaries like Peter Van Praet (BAVET) and Sarah Parent (GoForest) for the last 5 years.

Next retreat will be Sept - Oct
