Friendly, professional staff and quality diving with The Red Sea Diving College as always. We have used RSDC many, many times and we have never been disappointed with their service both in organising the diving during our holiday and the quality of the dive instructors and guides during the dives.

Many things have changed since 2003 but the key to business is consistency and we aim to achieve high standards year upon year which is why so many people choose us out of all of the centers in Sharm.

I would like to thank the Red Sea Diving College(RSDC), especially my instructor Hanna V. for the best and most life changing holiday of my life.

We booked a 5 day boat package for a special price of £185 for the diver with a passenger free of charge. This is a huge saving on previous trips. The college is well organised with a wealth of experience in Red Sea dive sites. The boat crew were friendly and helpful. The food on board was very good (at... More

Very nice and professional team. Whether you're russian, english, egyptian, french or serbian, you can find an instructor that will assist you. The boat is great and very well organized. Each day, the boat leaves the jetty around 8:30am and is back around 2pm (if 2 tank dives) or 4pm (if 3 tank dives). Nice and cheap lunch aboard. Nitrox... More
