A day on the Red Sea exploring the magnificent coral reefs is truly the best way to enjoy Jeddah as a foreigner. Besides being a lifelong lover of the sea, I thoroughly enjoyed my outing with Desert Sea Divers. The friendly crew lavished the small group of passengers with regular snacks and drinks between outings on the sea. We stopped... More

Maybe the best thing to do in Jeddah is diving. One of the few richness of Saudi Arabia which can be enjoyed is Red Sea. I found this club from trip advisor and took the chance to test it during one of the boring business trip to Jeddah. Now trips to Jeddah is not boring anymore. The location of the... More

Don’t go to Desert Sea Divers (DSD) – a 5 Star PADI Dive Center in Jeddah. That’s the worst partner for diving in Saudi Arabia, and in the world. The Red Sea is famous for its diving spots, so I was looking forward for some great moments – but everything went horrible wrong. On Thursday (3.12.2015) they confirmed diving by... More

I found them very professional whilst creating a relaxed and chilled atmosphere. Rented equipment needs to be checked thoroughly before departure. A fellow diver's flipper was broken and one of the crew unceremoniously offered mine to them. I very ungraciously refused causing some embarrassment. I was there to snorkel not to watch someone else snorkel with my flippers. But all... More

Great day out on the Red Sea. You can dive or snorkel. The boat is nice albeit a little small. Although for those who chose they can sun tan on the deck. . Nothing negative to say about it. lunch and drinks are provided for the day. SAR300 for your trip and a bit more for extras related to diving... More

After having been in Saudi for 10+ times, I finally found something touristy in the country! Go diving in Jeddah. Great dive sites (coral reefs, drop offs, wrecks, ...), no other divers. Cool! If only there were some more big fish, to much spearguns I suppose. Desert Sea divers is an ok run dive operator. You should roughly know though... More

These guys are great. You about 3 dives or better in for the advanced or pro. Drinks i.e. water coffee. For about 300sr. Beautiful diving. I have over 200 dives in the red sea and this is one my favorite places to dive shore or boat.

Good boat trip to dive and snorkel. Nothing spectacular to report, nothing negative either. Offered lunch and drinks for the day. Speak up if you are inexperienced diving so they pair you appropriately.

I have joined several boat dive trips with Desert Sea Divers and enjoyed each one. They have very good dive masters and go to different dive sites for each trip depending on the sea condition. Great way to discover the Jeddah Red Sea area and to meet friends. On several trips we had the opportunity to race with dolphins.
