I undertook my PADI Open Water course with Ocean College in May 2014. My instructor A. Basha was fantastic, however all the other staff in the background were also very friendly. I had originally decided to complete the basic dive package, but upgraded it to the full PADI course on the first day. The experience was that good I have... More

We did the PADI Open Water Diver course and it was incredible. The instructor, Mohammed, and the staff were helpful, knowledgeable and fun. I can't wait to go back, i highly recommend doing a night dive at Palace!

Thank you to absolutely everyone at Ocean College, Naarma bay- you gave me the very best experience that it was possible to have and I am totally hooked with diving. This is thanks to the staff behind the desk for believing in me and giving me a second chance after a calamitous first experience where my personal boundaries were certainly... More

I dived with them for 3 days. No complaints. They're a very British dive center. Expect professionalism and a focus on safety. They're also running discounts online now, so they're currently the cheapest dive center in the small survey I did. I also observed that the dive guides / instructors generally have tech diving experience, which helps. I was especially... More

This was my 3rd trip to Ocean College and I have already planned my next one back. I cannot fault anything about the Ocean College dive centre at the Sensatori hotel. The staff are absolutely fantastic, they know how to have fun and show you a good time but on the other hand are always extremely professional in their manner... More

We have had a number of holidays to Sharm and ALWAYS go diving with Ocean College. They have the perfect blend of quality boats, good dive centres, accomodating service and excellent guides. We had the opportunity to suggest dive sites to visit to shape our itinerary and they are always very keen to include for our wishes. My partner snorkels... More

This was my 3 return trip to Ocean College and will definitely not be my last. Arm and the crew at Ocean College always have just the right mix of professionalism and humour. All my dives were first rate with plenty to see even if only doing beach dives, while the Rib dives Arm organised were exceptional and the time... More

Spent 2 days with the guys from ocean college and had a great time. The boats seemed to have British divers on only. The briefings were great, food very nice and all staff helpful and best of all the prices were very good. Was able to do 3 dives a day and spend the rest of the week chilling out... More

Hello whitecliffBeds Thank you for your review of Ocean College and great that you were able to spot a Manta with Dan while diving with us. We are getting a number of big fish sightings at the moment which is just one of the many reasons the diving is so fantastic here in the Red Sea. Best Regards, Ocean College... More

My partner and I wanted to give diving a try. We decided to do a discover scuba diving package as we wanted to learn a bit about diving rather than just be taken down with an instructor to see the underwater world. Having been to Sham a few times and had recommendations from friends we knew the only company we... More
