Went to Sharm as part of a club trip, Ocean coolege is to be recommended as they are so professional and well run. Thanks must go not only to Jilly & Eloise but all the boat crews for making our time memorable.

We have visited Sharm for many years and my son and I qualified as both Open Water and Advanced Divers with Ocean College. We have dived with other companies though and I can honestly say that they are not a patch on Ocean College. We find them to be very friendly, well organised and safety focussed (which is of paramount... More

I visited Sharm El Sheikh in the wrong period (after the terrorists attack), there were not many people diving with me, I was alone!!! The guys from Ocean College were very polite and helpful, especially the instructor who was really patient with me and I thank him for that. I like the gear they gave me, it seemed very well...

Just returned back from an ‘extended’ break with Ocean College and wanted to say it has been a pleasure diving with them again. As per standard everything was catered for so I commend them on making my latest diving holiday a thoroughly enjoyable experience! I had the news my holiday was to be extended due to issues at the airport... More

As usual the service was first class, the guides were excellent and the diving awesome! When we had to extend our stay due to the ban on flights out of Sharm Ocean College couldn't do enough to help us. Special thanks go to Dan Stokes for looking after us for our 8 days of diving. So, if you're already divers... More

Ocean collage are very professional and know exactly what they do. I was very nervous and really worried about going on the discover scuba diving trip. When I got there I panicked but still did it. This was due to the patience of the instructor. He had 4 people in our group and he really calmed me down by helping... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our diving experience with Ocean college. It was my husband's first time diving however, and he was struggling with equalising pressure in his ears - so he was slower to descend than us - I was nervous about all of the powered boats that were whizzing around above us - he was very close to being knocked...

I spent four days doing my PADI open water course which was phenomenally done. I had one-on-one instruction from Ibrahem who personally was one of the most patient, fun, and skillful teachers I've ever had. All of your confined dives are done from the beach which add to the relevance of the course. From the admin side, Ocean College are... More

He did a couple if dives with them a couple of years ago and we were glad he had the same instructor again. I felt 100% safe knowing he was going out with Curly, while out there he did a... More

I dived with Ocean College nine days (total of 20 dives) and I can confidentially say they were amazing. Online booking was smooth and I had all my queries answered by the nice gentleman Islam.
