We have just arrived back from a week in Sharm and a 3day, 6 dive package with Ocean College Dive. My husband and I are both advanced open water certified, but both in our 60's and sometimes find it a bit daunting to be "the only senior people on the boat" However, apart from a problem with 1 dive instructor...

This was our first holiday to Egypt having never dived before, we decided to try the 2 day course with Ocean College while staying at the Sensatori resort but after the first dive, which we thoroughly enjoyed, we were hooked and went on to do the 4 day Open Water course followed by the Enriched Air course.

Just back from our 5th trip in 2 years and wouldn't consider diving with anyone else. Jilly, Dan, Jo and all the team are very knowledgeable and great guides and teachers. The boats have some of the best teams in Sharm making an overall great experience. Can't wait to get back.

Ok, this was my sixth time at OC but I still can't think of any reason to go anywhere else. Online booking and confirmation emails make arranging a trip so simple. Now I'm not going to repeat previous comments but I'm going to concentrate on my trip to Thistlegorm. I'd been diving with dive guide Eloise and had mentioned I... More

This was our 12th time with OC and would not consider diving with anyone else in Sharm. Prompt pick up from your hotel and the staff really go out of their way to give you fab diving. Don't be put off by the cheap prices - they really do offer top service and value for money

A group of 5 of us have just done 6 days diving with Ocean College. The service provided is outstanding, every need is catered for, the guides are very professional but at the same time friendly and great fun to be with and the diving itself is just amazing!!
