We booked a 3 day 2 dive/day pack. From start to finish the guys were friendly, helpful and efficient. The boats they used, in this case the Sea Flower, were in good condition with plenty of room to move. The crews were helpful and friendly especially when checking our younger divers into and out of the water. The lunches were... More

First time diving with Ocean College. Hope it will not be my last. 3 days diving with free nitrox for certified divers. Free transfers from hotel in Sharm. Never late at all on pick up times. Super safe outfit to dive with. Really, really well run. Great knowledge, great guides, great dive sites, and Jo. Her laughter is heard around... More

What a fantastic centre, we decided to learn to dive and after reading about ocean college my wife, son and I booked the open water course. We were picked up on time everyday in a taxi full of happy divers even though it was 7.30 in the morning. Our dive instructor was Franziska, and she was fantastic. My wife had... More

These guys were outstanding. From communication prior to our trip and booking online, to being collected from our resort and the diving experience, everything was extremely professional. We planned three days of diving during our trip - I needed to complete my open water qualifying dives, and wanted a couple of additional dives. My partner also wanted to dive on... More

I did 10 dives with Ocean last week and having dove with several different diving clubs in Sharm in the past I can honestly say they were the most professional. I have my own gear but from what I saw on the boat the stuff they have is excellent and well maintained. The guides are experienced and give excellent briefing... More

We found out the day before our trip that we were the only ones that wanted to dive the local sites and that they had put us with another dive operator's boat. That concerned me a bit since I booked Ocean College with the good reviews, and I felt like I did my research on quality. I was a bit... More

Hello jessyht Thank you for your review of Ocean College and we're all of course very sorry that you were disappointed with your day. There are times when we have to share boats with other reputable dive operators and it's unfortunate that their boat broke down on that day. I hope you understand though that It was beyond their or... More

I have dived with Ocean college lots of times. I cannot fault them. Great guides, great gear, great boats (could do with a little more shade top deck on sea flower!), excellent service. And a 2m white tip - very happy diving :-)

My partner and I did the 'Discover Scuba Diving' experience whilst we were on holiday in Egypt, and it was fantastic! I would really recommend Ocean College for anyone who wants to do any diving when in Sharm. The instructors were really helpful and informative and I really enjoyed the experience, especially the fact that we were pretty much left... More
