It was great to stay at Shams Hotel and Diving Center and take my first dive from there. The staff are very friendly and awesome... I didn't feel I'm in a Hotel but I felt I'm in a second Home. Keep your spirits guys you are doing A great job. I'm now an Open Water Diver Certified... Thanks Shams :)

The Advanced open water course was more about fine, I recommend to have a night dive , drift dive, and boat dive. I do not recommend a ware fish identification dive,... More
