A diver can have tea in a simple beach cafe and then take just a handful of steps into the Gulf of Aqaba, where the seafloor plunges more than 100 yards into a wine-glass-shaped blue hole.<p>Free-divers, who take a breath, swim as deep into the ocean as possible and then come back up, come to Dahab from across the world to compete.
