This was my 3rd time diving but it was hands down the best experience i have ever had- both under and over the water. The crew is one of the best around and they do know how to make the entire experience so memorable. Lunch, boat, amenities everything is as good as it can possibly get. You cant go wrong with them.

The boat was very clean and comfortable, great deck above for sunbathing and to observe the views.
Mustafa, Akram and team were all so welcoming and fun. They made us feel very comfortable and in safe hands. They looked after us on our dive and gave us an unbelievable experience. Will definitely come back to Blue Paradise if we come back to Egypt.

We are a young couple who have been diving once before. The boat was very clean and staff so friendly and helpful. The diving instructors explained every detail to us before we left the boat and we had one diving instructor per person. We had a little wait between couples going in but this gave us time to snorkle for which all the gear was provided. We paid for the first dive before we left with our tui rep £44pp and had the option of a second dive on the day which we took full advantage of for an extra £21pp. There are some extras to pay such as the transfer and tax but this was fully explained before we left so no unexpected extras. We would definatly rate this excursion as 5 star and say a massive thankyou to the whole team.

Myself and my daughter (16) both did the introduction dive and enjoyed it so much we did the second one later that afternoon! I have dived before but was very nervous, but not this time - Mohammed was a great instructor and i loved every second of both dives!

Amazing experience would recommend it to anyone.

The staff were brilliant. They were very fun and lively. They were very informative and patient with you so you immediately felt comfortable.

You get offered a second dive if you really enjoyed it. Everyone on the boat had a second dive, which in itself shows how great the experience was. At an additional charge of course.

The trips is a full day and well worth the money.

Great experience from start to finish , extremely friendly and professional crew and fellow divers , my intro dives were superb with lots of marine life to see , and my sons dives were amazing (his words) especially when two dolphins tagged along for nearly an hour , the food on board was also excellent , i would definitely recommend this company .

This dive team has us coming back again and again. Everybody is so friendly and make you feel so welcome,a little like being part of a family. Both my 11 year old daughter and myself love the friendliness,fun and Confidence building we get from each visit. New adventures from each dive,each day. It can be carefully planned online months before our visit. Sylvie sorts it all out for you !! Summer is just her deep dive away now,from her padi junior advanced open water and she can’t wait to head out again once she reaches 12 to compete. Absolutely blows my mind,when ‘Bart’ dives with my daughter and I hang back and watch that little bit of magic under the water. When a young diver goes down,it’s not all about the fish and what an adult would normally want from their dive...........a child’s dive is more about a slightly slower pace, patience and reinsurance shown if needed.......although Summer is becoming a very independent diver now from all the skills learnt. ......then when under the water its maybe some gymnastics,flying along with the current and copying the correct body positions from the instructor.......getting to learn the crazy fish language they speak with signals and becoming a confident and safe young diver. Every time she dives,she is gaining so much more than the diving skills,but a massive amount of confidence in herself that will help her in life. We feel very lucky to have found Blue Paridise and especially lucky to have found Bart. He is definitely one of a kind with a young diver. Can’t recommend them enough to come for a try dive or complete your courses. I normally also manage to really push my diving skills and dive with advanced divers,making my dives tick all the boxes aswell. They will allow me join in and feel included in the groups going down. I am already saving hard for our next trip out to Blue Paridise. 😃😃 Thankyou all guys. Ps.......the lunch is really yummy and fairly priced

We visited Egypt in March 19. We booked an introduction scuba dive through the rep at our hotel. Wanted to try scuba diving for many years and the best place to try this was in the red sea. Myself and my husband both did the dive and also did a second dive. The guys on the boat were amazing and explained everything and you felt at ease. The dive itself was awesome. The instructors were brilliant even when I had a wobble in the second dive. Wont let that put me off as when back on the boat the instructor took the time to speak to me and reassured me that lots of people have wobbles. We will be back probably to do the PADI. The lunch on the boat was excellent and would recommend it.

I highly recommend Blue paradise for everyone! We booked by email, they responsed to all questions that we had and everything was arranged easily. We paid 59EUR pp for the trip (transfer from/to hotel, snorkelling and one dive included) and additional 25EUR pp for second dive.
The lunch on board was so so (5 EUR pp), not bad, but if you are picky better prepare some sandwiches by yourself in advance. Anyway the food is not the important thing here.
Back to the topik - Diving was unforgettable. Our diving instructor Triana was very nice, professional and made us feel safe and secure all the time. She explained us in details all we needed to know about the diving, showed us how to use the equipment and was really calm and patient with us. Thanks to her we had amazing time underwater, although we never dived before (never tried snorkelling either). We saw so many different fishes and corals. I never thought that was possible for total amateurs like us. Special thanks to Triana!
Also the whole crew/staff was very nice and helpful.

My wife and I had never dived before and TUI explained that for the try dive it was 1 instructor per person , so we tried it . There was also an option of as second dive if you liked the first one . Boat is very well looked after , Food on board if fine as are amenities . The guidance given on board and the care they took with us was excellent and at all times we felt safe and in control. We enjoyed the first dive so much we did the second one as did every other person on the try dives . The PADI instructors were calm and careful with instruction and were with us at all time ( see below) . IF you have never dived before these are the people to go with . They pointed out things underwater for us so we had a magical experience - PADI certification here we go !
