Having completed my Open Water and advanced Open Water I can highly recommend Ocean College to anyone interested in all aspects of diving. All the staff are very professional and have made my 6 days spent with them extremely memorable. Many thanks to Karim , Amy and Oosma for a great time had by me and my family.

This was my best diving experience and I got my advanced course done while there. The dive is from the end of the pontoon which drops you on top of the reef for the best dive with plenty to see each and every time. The group just after us saw a whale shark which you have to very lucky to... More

I did a check dive and 4 local dives in April 2015 with Ocean College. Good setup, very organized and the place has high standards for safety. I did my check dive with James who is working on his divemaster certification. He also did the boat brief and found him to be very thorough and helpful. I also did some... More

Great house reef at sensatori. Our guide Curly did a thorough briefing both on safety and the dive site. He is very entertaining and also offers marriage guidance counselling lol! The staff who look after the gear are brilliant and also helped carry my wife's equipment to the end of the jetty first class service

We specifically stayed in the Sensatori Sharm el Sheikh (Thomson hotel) to do the PADI Open Water Dive whilst we were there because Ocean College have an onsite Dive School at this hotel and it made more sense than being picked up by boat and going elsewhere. The price of the PADI licence in the UK worked out about twice... More

We had two great days diving. Jo was fabulous. Extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We had James completing his Dive Master training too, which was great. Whilst the water was a little chilly (22 degrees), we enjoyed the dives. The swim throughs were amazing. Having the Dolphins chasing the boat on one of the days was an added bonus. Will... More

Back in December we embarked on our first diving course, in Mexico. The Open Water Course both my son and attended at the time I thought was good. The course gave us the hunger to experience the world of SCUBA. We plan to do our advanced open water and Nitrox course in Egypt. After hours on trip advisor I came... More

First of all I have to say that the 3 day dive package we bought on line was excellent value, 15 litre air and Nitrox were available at small extra cost if ordered in advance.. We stayed at the Iberotel Palace hotel in early April 2015 situated in the old market area of Sharm El Sheikh, where the Thomson rep... More

Had two days diving with Ocean College during our first visit to Sharm El Sheikh. I was like a kid in the candy shop, so much to see. We will be back, but maybe later in the year. Only had my 3mm shorty and full lavacore on, so felt chilly towards the end of the dive. However, the diving made... More
