“An excellent dive centre with outstanding service and beautiful dive sites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

Due to the German GM you can say that the centre is run very professionally.
The dive sites are very nice especially the site right from the jetty by the dive centre.
All the Egyptian dive guides are very friendly, funny and know their job very well.
Everyone speaks English very well and the dive centre has a warm and friendly atmosphere
especially after the renovations in 2008/2009.

“Best divecentre i have been!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

November last year i have been to Marsa Alam Egypt with a Dutch diving club "Duikteam Baerne". With 21 persons we booked several packages. Before flying to Egypt there was allot of contact with Coraya Divers and they responded very quick wenn i hat a question.

This divecentre delivers high service and quality. They are well organized and very friendly. They won a price for being the best divecentre at the Red Sea a view years ago.

This holiday was perfect and i want to thank Coraya Divers by sharing my experience with everybody.

“Excellent diving.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

This is a fairly large and busy dive centre, the GM and several of the personnel are german, it's also multilingual , italian, russian, the majority of the guides/instructors are egyptian and everybody speaks english. There is a good atmosphere about. Pre-book on-line to get the discounted rate, you pay at check-out.
A check dive is required from everyone at the house reef.
We had our complete gear so I can't comment on the rental equipment. They have a small selection for sale, from masks to BCD to computers, I didn't look in detail.
Everybody takes care of the equipment, rinse it, store it in the box and lock it up. You bring your box out on the day, if you dive the house reef you get dressed at the base, the air tanks are brought to the jetty in a cart pulled by a donkey. If you go on the dive bus you need to carry your box to the pick-up truck that comes along.
Diving the house reef in the bay is good and will keep you busy for a day or two, you get in from the jetty down the steps, jump or have the zodiac take you to a drop spot. There is always helpers at the jetty assisting the divers, quite a few divers go on their own unguided.
Here is where we went during our week stay: We did Erg Trombi and Sharm Coraya by speed boat. from the jetty. From Port Ghalib we did Umm El Roos on the small boat and Marsa Sura with the large boat and i we had several dives at the house reef.
We stayed at the excellent Dar El Madina, their beach-snack-bar is steps from the dive centre! Date June 17 - 24. Sea temp. 27-28°C .
( the donkey is working hard to get the cart filled with air tanks up a minimal incline, it looks well fed and looked after, the harness appears to be in good order)
