I made 6 dives with the diving school and completed my Advanced Padi. I think they were very good for Sharm, friendly, helpful, organised in what can be a chaotic place and I felt in safe hands and well looked after but have reservations about the rental equipment.

Myself and my Husband completed our PADI Open Water Course with Ocean College and it was truly excellent, our Instructor Isabelle was amazing and she really took her time to explain everything and was really helpful beyond expectations, we really enjoyed the course and went on to do a day diving with Ben on one of their boats, who again...

We had planned to do a lot of diving on our holiday and the three of us decided to book our Open Water Course with Ocean College through our Thompson rep. I was aware that there was a discount if you booked online but when I asked our rep about it he told us it was "against the rules" to... More

Came as a couple already open water qualified and did the advanced deep sea/open water qualification. These guys/girls don't mess around. Safety is paramount and any confidence issues are short lived as the training is second to none. They knew their stuff, no doubt about it and looked after all their divers. We ended up doing 19 dives in two... More

The lady on the desk could improve her customer service skills was quite brusque with us and seemed irritated when he was asking her questions. My husbsnd ended up doing a nitrox course which included two dives,the course was very well... More

My partner did his open water with them last year and his advanced this year after another trip in between. My partner has a fear of water having drowned as a child(and resuscitated) but they were...

Great level of friendly and helpful service. I couldn't fault Ocean College in anyway. I was a first time diver with my 14 year old niece and had no idea on what to expect. Isabelle took her time with us to explain everything and also help us build up our dive confidence which made our experience one that we will... More

Our family of five did over 80 dives with Ocean, including our 3 children doing their JAOW. Isabelle did a great job with them, educational yet sympathetically directive. On our normal dives Jo...
