My wife and I did 2 days (4 dives) with Ocean College at the recommendation of our Thomson rep. They were excellent and particularly our instructor 'Basha' was the model of professionalism, calmness and safety. I would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Good quality equipment provided if needed, pick up transport available and arrived on time. The dive packages are real good value. And the diving first class local,... More

Out of convenience I booked my dive trips with Ocean College from the Sensatori resort dive centre, interestingly it appears to be part of the Thomson holiday group. Anyway, I intended to plan a few local boat dives, night dives and the classic Sharm wrecks. My partner booked her AOW course in preparation for the deep wreck dives which lay... More

He helped me a lot baring in mind I'm 4.ft11 and the oxygen tank was actually as big as me, he was patient... More

Was really nervous about my first time scuba diving but Alex put us all at ease. Brilliant instructor plus we felt really safe with her. Anyone thinking of going diving in sharm should look no further than ocean college. We will definitely be back!

Suffice to say we were sorely disappointed to see the team from last year had been replaced by an arrogant, pushy team. Last year we were made to feel more than welcome, and all queries and questions were dealt with professionally and friendly. This year I was given contradicting information to what PADI had told me before I left home,... More

Even managed to dive with a huge Manta Ray (thanks Sami) on one of my dives, awesome!!! I would have given it 5 stars, had I been able... More
