There is only one reason why I keep going back year after year to dive with Ocean College - and that's the staff. I would like to name each one individually but it would take too much time. Let's just say that although I go to sharm on my own, I never feel alone from the minute I get to... More

I booked my open water dive course from the UK, and was immediately impressed with the arrangements. Really quick acknowledgement and very clear joining instructions. The Team were more than happy to quickly and thoroughly deal with any further queries. The reality of learning to dive with Ocean College was even better. My instructor, Jo Dowling, is officially one of... More

My husband and I, we have just completed our open water dive course during the last 4 days. Everything was well explained and the training was individually apapted towards the development needs and strengths. We plan to further develop our skills and will definitely go with Ocean College again.

We booked online to do the advanced open water course before leaving the UK. Dan, our instructor, was great - very friendly, knowledgeable and made the teaching parts fun. We did a night dive as part of the course which was brilliant. I enjoyed the diving so much that I ended up booking another couple of days for later in... More

We would highly recommend this dive centre to anyone at any level. They are absolutely fantastic! My husband completed the on-line part of the open water course before we left for Sharm and soon settled into the theory with this very welcoming and highly competent team. I had done a couple of trial dives before but was still really scared... More

Decided to go with OC after reading all the positive Tripadvisor reviews and booked up open water course online prior to leaving UK. All correspondence and details were clear and informative. The scheduled pick up and drop off at my hotel was like clockwork and made to feel welcome and part of a fun experience from the outset. My instructor... More

Having completed my Advanced Open Water with Ocean College last year I decided to up the tempo and tackle the Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver Courses. As before the communication prior to arrival was excellent and the pickup from my hotel was prompt each day. My trainer was Amr A and I cannot praise him highly enough. With a... More

As always first class service and the staff are great. We have been diving with Ocean College for many years, I took my courses with them one to one. The food on the boats is better than you get in most hotels at lunch time. Can't wait to return in September this year.

In two quite concentrated days, they got me through Advanced Open Water and Nitrox qualification with the plus of some very pleasant dives. All the arrangements worked slickly and smoothly, without me having to think about anything but the diving and the theory. Thanks to Mohammed and all the team. Thoroughly recommended.
