Hurghada Daily Scuba Dive Trip | Aug 2018

Book this trip, you wont regret it. My girlfriend and I are super satisfied, it was for both of us our first diving experience and I was a little afraid is it a smart move to go directly to the ocean with no previous experience and for such a low price. The pick up was sharp on time with really friendly tour agent, with a normal air conditioned car. Special thanks to Mahmoud, our diving teacher who was really professional and trustworthy, and he is a super experienced driver so no need to be scared, you will be in good hands. Paradise beach between 2 diving sites is AMAZING. As I said, book this trip it would be a wonderful experience. Milos and Ana from Serbia.

The tour was safe, the guides were knowledgeable, engaging and always willing to help. A beginner can feel comfortable doing a first dive here. The only thing I would change would be the food and beverage selection and amount.

Fantastic trip, first dive site...

Hurghada Daily Scuba Dive Trip | Jun 2017

Fantastic trip, first dive site there were a few boats moored together so the sea was a little choppy for an intro dive but the second site was amazing. Instructors were patient, informative and very experienced. Food could have been a little tastier and the boat could do with a spruce up but this didn't detract from what was an amazing experience. Got to see an abundance of reef life, corals and fish including lion fish, parrot fish, angels, tangs, wrasse and even a flute fish and spotted ray! Also worth paying for the photographer to take some photos, we got about 60 photos for 20. I would say this though, if I went again I'd ask the photographer to take more photos of the fish we saw rather than have them all of my partner and I. Definitely would die with these guys again.

The trip was amazing. We went diving on two different sites with two instructors each had two divers and one photographer around. We saw so many different fishes and the whole group was nice and kind. The photos were great, but not included in the package, so bring extra money - I would do it again!

This trip was amazing! The dive instructor Akmad likely mispelled and the boat operator Roma also likely misspelled were awesome! I don't remember his Roma's son's name, but he was adorable, and a cute addition to the trip! Akmad was patient and kind! I'm a bit afraid of water, but I wanted to dive. Akmad took the time to reassure me and insure that I was prepared for my first dive. His directions were clear and concise. His english was amazing! He even taught me a bit of arabic! The staff taught us to fish and even posed for pictures! The lunch was also tasty. Transportation to and from the boat was prompt and clean. The guide even took the time to suggest a superb dinner restaurant! I'm am glad we took this trip!
