After waiting 30 mins to pay, I went to ask for cost of my course in egyptian pounds, the admin staff got angry and took to shouting at me about the number of forms he... More

We were very surprised to find the Ocean College Dive Centre just across from our room at The Sensatori Hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and myself, my husband and our son booked straight in for a dive from the Jetty. My husband and son did a further dive at Gordon Reef and saw 2 white tip reef... More

After being hassled at the pool by one representative of this diving center located at the Hilton Sharm Waterfall Resort we finally decided to make our diving with them due to their location (within the hotel we were), but once we went to their office we realized that it is a company just willing to take your money. Their staff... More

Thanks to Mohammad and Eamonn for everything they did. Went out of their way. Reasonable rates but the attention to detail was excellent. Felt safe and secure in the staffs' hands. Incredible dive sites, led by fantastic teams.

Have dived across the world and never came across such an unprofessional organisation. 8 divers entered the water and 4 of us had to be rescued by other operators. Our guide didn't even have the common courtesy to ask us how we were when we made it back to the boat. Ocean College denied any responsibility and luckily no one... More

Hello kingcrunch, If you had listened to and complied with briefing you wouldn't have had to be assisted off the reef. Unfair to blame the guide for your situation in this case. Best Regards, Ocean College team More

My wife and I first visited Sharm in October 2014 and dived with Ocean College. We were extremely impressed so it was easy choice to rebook with Ocean College for our (longer) 2 week vacation in July 2015. The website offers a fairly discounted rate, so it is worth pre-booking at least some of your dives. After purchasing a package... More

Having been away from diving for 6 years,the Scuba Review was excellent and worth the investment. They were very professional and worked to my ability. The two Rib dives were excellent and I swam with a Turtle around Thomas Reef, that experience was just fantastic. Paid a little extra for the 15ltr tank as I use a lot of air!... More
