“Great Diving, Great People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I came to Hurghada with little interest to scuba dive. These guys changed my mind! I had a great intro dive the first day. Ahmed w Khaled were great at giving intro dives. Had so much fun that I decided to get PADI open water certified here. I got certified with a personal trainer for a great price and did all my cert dives in the Red Sea. These guys are so cool that I even stayed in their rentable apartments for a week. We had cookouts with the Bijou family and other divers each night. Lunch on the boat between dives is great. Plenty of dolphins and turtles at the dive sites. Great staff

Great diving center that takes care of their divers. Very helpful, nice and good divers. I just got the right feeling at the start when I came across their website and this family takes care of you and help you so you get the best out of your dive. I cannot say anything bad about this diving center, only great stuff! Thanks for very nice dives and for a great service!

“Great Family Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

(2 adults + 7 yo - intro scuba day)

We have chosen NSB based totally on TA reviews. This was right thing to do and we had lots of fun on the day.
We have been picked up from the hotel early in the morning about 7:30am and were driven through Hurghada to the diving centre(Egyption way, you have to trust the driver, otherwise it is a bit scary :) ), there is a small fee for a transfer.
Ahmed met us at the centre and helped us to chose the right equipment and even given us some pills in case we have issues with seasickness(worked fine).
We have been sharing a boat with experienced divers(all German on that day) and they were doing wreck dive and drift diving.
Following the wreck dive it was our turn and Ahmed did guide us himself(hand in hand), he was making sure you feel comfortable under the water and was constantly checking. He was pointing at all of the interesting fish, I saw morena, barracuda, clown fish, rays and many other ones I do not know names of.
My wife did exactly the same and after Ahmed took our son for a brief shallow dive(the kid was very excited).
After lunch experienced divers were doing their drift dive and we were doing our second dive of the day, it was even better the second time(the site was nice as well, lots of fish and corrals ). We had some time to snorkel after dives.
Following our return to marina Ahmed gave us all the photos he made for us under the water(some were really great pics).
We would definitely do it again.
