The Owners

Dune, and more specifically Gérard Besse, originally from France, opened his first dive center in 1997, in Egypt.
Over 20 years later, Dune has now 2 dives centers in France, 1 in Egypt, 1 in Bali and 1 in Mexico. Diving experience can also be on a boat, so Dune also developed liveaboards in Egypt, Sudan, across Indonésia and in the Maldives.
