I can't say enough good things about these guys! Every time I go to Jeddah, I dive with them and refer all my dive friends to them. Ziad, the crew and divemasters are all very professional, helpful and they go out of their way to provide you with top-notch service! Excellent for dive groups or single individuals, as you can...

We had an amazing day with Desert Sea Divers and the dive instructor Mohammed.M. Kattoah 2 of us had signed up for a 'discover diving' package and 1 for snorkeling. Actually from the minute we contacted the company some weeks ago to organise the trip, we found them so professional, organised and welcoming. We arrived to their offices at 745am... More

This was definitely my best dive so far of the total 4 dives I have done. Beautiful underwater scenery and a lot to explore, but most importantly the crew of desert sea divers was the best. For the first time I have dived with the support of a commercial company who did not want to haste, and was more concerned... More

Wasn't sure what to expect - not with the Red Sea Diving as I had high expectations having done a few shore dives but with the company. Desert Sea Divers exceeded my expections all the way around - very professional, very clean, very good dives - we did a wreck dive on the "Chicken Wreck" - aptly named as it... More

Although I have been working and living in Saudi Arabia since 2007, I only began scuba diving in 2010. Diving off the west coast of Saudi arabia is truly an unforgettable experience. Since 2010, I have accumulated more than 40 dives in the Red Sea and quite a number of my dives have been with Desert Sea Divers. For approximately... More

I have been on many diving trips with desert sea divers and all have been excellent. Ziad who works in the shop in the dive village is very polite and answers emails very promptly. DM Ali is an excellent guide and looks after you if it has been a while since you have dived. Food on board is fantastic and... More

This seems to be one of the most well known scuba diving centres in Jeddah. It is located about in Obhur, North of Jeddah. Be careful though when you go for the first time to dive: two shops exist, one at the FAL resort and one in "Dive Village". Boats are leaving from the former one. Boat trips are organised... More

It’s a bit nervous when diving in the Arabian sea for the first time but everything turned out so fine. Just stay with the group and follow all the instructions. They say it is a connecting point of the hot and cold sea water so there are a lot of fish… and sharks too. But we didn’t see any shark... More

I have been on many boat trips with DSD over the last year and they have all been excellent. Great organisation at the shop at the dive village (Ziad is very helpful), and very experienced crew on board, will take you to dive sites according to skill level and number of snorkelers on board, usually a wreck site will be...
