We got a great deal on a 5 day dive package. Very happy with the choice of dive sites, equipment, service and the food/lunch on the boats was excellent (at a small extra charge). The staff were great and never seemed to tire or answering the kind of questions they probably get asked several times a week! Would definitely recommend... More

My son and I completed our PADI scuba diver certification with Ocean College. We found it to be extremely well run and professional, with safety a key factor. The ratio of instructors to students is very good and the instructors make sure that any questions are adequately addressed before moving on to the next thing. The standard of equipment provided...

I went to Sharm with a friend and booked 3 days diving online with Ocean College. They kindly changed our start date at our request following the booking. They collected us from where we stayed and returned us by AC minibus each day. Not only were Amr and Jo excellent guides, but they took time to refresh skills with me... More
