PADI Aware Fish Identification Specialty Course

PADI Aware Fish Identification Specialty Course

By Egypt Divers
The Aware Fish Identification course enables you to recognize and identify underwater creatures. The joy of no more asking questions, only answers! So you’re diving and, after surfacing, have to ask your buddy or instructor the question what beautiful underwater creatures you have just encountered. That’s why PADI created the AWARE – Fish Identification Specialty course. PADI courses are designed to help you learn in the way that’s best for you. To give you answers to questions you never have to ask again. It’s just so much more fun to familiarize with characteristics that help you identify fish. Our courses combine visual, reading, writing and practical learning techniques to ensure you really understand each section. We teach you how to recognize patterns and fish. It will enhance your skills to refer to exact species after a scuba dive. Deciphering fish is a lot of fun and will no longer be a quiz!!

          Great Diving Company
          All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Michael our Dive guide was wonderful and showed us around lots of great dive sites. All the dive sites are incredible, but are all fairly similar, and we were unable to do a trip to further afield sites such as the Salem Express with them. Overall, they were great value, and we had a fantastic time, would recommend to a friend!!!

          Good organised dive school!
          We are diving family of 4 and have together 1000+ dives. Begin May we made several dives with Egypt Divers in Hurghada. They are based on the premises of the Desert Rose hotel. Everything is organized very well. If you arrive they receive you, make copies of your diving licenses and prepare a box for you. We only needed to rent 2 BCD’s because we have the rest of our own. They have good rental equipment. When the box was complete, they give you a number for your weight belt with 12 kg. All boxes then will be brought on board of the boat. You can build up your equipment as soon as you are on the boat. They normally make 2 dives per trip. On request they can make even 3. On our dives each guide had up to 6 divers with him. All guides were really professional and patient. We were able to make each dive between 50 and 60 minutes. The dive sites they took us were really beautiful. Between the dives a typical lunch was served like you see on many dive boats. The quality was really good. There was also coffee and soft drinks available during the trip. We also made 1 house reef dive at the hotel bud you better skip that. Really un-deep and not much to see. It is much better diving by boat. I would highly recommend this dive company.

          From start to finish, the trip was enjoyable. The cleanliness was clear on the boat. The quality of the food and equipment was new and safe. The staff knows what makes you happy. I would like to thank all the staff of Egypt Divers.

          Great five-day diving experience
          We had a great five-day experience with Egypt Divers and their colleagues from Undersea Adventures in Hurghada.We went on a daily boat trip with a company of two experienced divers and two snorkelers. We visited different sites each day, received good briefings and were mostly divided in groups with divers of a similar level. The diving experience was amazing, special thanks also to the instructors who dived with us (both Michaels and Bassem). The rest of the team was also really enthousiastic and happy, causing a good atmosphere in the boat. Lunch was decent, I also don’t think you can expect more than that on a boat. If there is any point of criticism: - the shuttle service was rather late a few times, having to wait 20mins for the van to pick us up - the boat was a little crowdy a few days over the course of the week. However, I can’t blame them as it’s not a private safari :-) Thanks! Will visit them again if I return to Hurghada!

          Brilliant day out. My partner and I first went out with bassem and his team when we arrived to the Hilton. They took us snorkelling and it was amazing. We loved it so much that we even booked a second trip out with them. Everyone on the team was very friendly and ensured we were happy and safe the entire time. I would highly recommend this day trip out.

          Open Water Diver - great teacher and course
          We (one adult, one 11 year old boy) did the Open Water Diver PADI Qualification. With no prior knowledge we were taught in a great and fun way for 3 days. A great way to start diving - I can recommend this school with kids. Samir, the teacher was excellent - all staff is really friendly. Processes were thought through and efficient.

          Not the most relaxing diving experience
          After having to negotiate the price (which was far higher than the price advertised on their website) for two days diving on a PADI scuba diving course for my boyfriend and four dives (two from Hurghada shore to reef and two from boat the following day) for myself an advanced scuba diver we began our two days experience. At times with the instructor Ahmed my boyfriend felt rushed to learn his skills and overall the environment of the diving school was hectic with lots of people giving different instructions of how to do things with lots of shouting. We had visited on an unusually cold week in Egypt even for winter and the centre seem to only offer shortie wetsuits so we both got very cold. There seemed to be a huge reluctance to give us more protection and it was only after asking several times my boyfriend was given a long wetsuit for the second day. For our boat dives we had been told there would be a maximum of 15 people on the boat with us but this was not true as we believed there to be around 25 people. We noticed that everyone else on the boat was snorkelling so not a lot of respect was given for our diving equipment so at one stage we were entering the water trying to negotiate a women taking selfies at a safety critical moment for us walking with heavy equipment and fins. Clear communication was not given to the non divers so this again created a chaotic environment. The positives were that our equipment was carried from the dive centre to the shore or boat each day and appeared to be in good order. The instructors were knowledgable about diving and Ahmed gave us a good briefing before each dive about what to expect and any skills we were to cover so it was clear. The Red Sea is a special place to dive with lots of incredible aquatic life to see.

          Wonderful day and good value for money
          We did 2 intro dives (we have experience but no license). 2 great dives, 20-25 minutes each, from a boat. Cool boatride, amazing crew and good gear! We had an amazing day & good value for money

          Amazing diving site
          We had an awesome day with Egypt Divers. Great value for money, awesome crew and diving locations. We spontaneously contacted them the day before and everything was smoothly arranged. They sent a driver to pick us up directly at our hotel, then we arrived to the boat and met the crew, where we did the briefing divided by groups according to our level. After reaching our destination, we did two awesome dives. Equipment was in good conditions and our guide, Islam, was friendly and knew what he was doing (he came to dive with us eventhough he was on Holidays). A delicious lunch was included on board and we headed back in time. I would definitely recommend this experience and would definitely dive with them again if we go back to Hurghada.

          Professional yet fun teaching approach
          We were on a referral Dive Guide/Divemaster course here and the experience with this dive center was great . The staff was very friendly and helpful and did all that was possible to answer any of our questions and meet our needs. Morning boat trips to the dive sites were a relaxing moment before and after the dives, and this center also has it's own house reef within the Coral Beach Hotel, making it easy to go on autonomous dives as well. Regarding the courses, the way the diving and skills lessons were given by our dive instructor, Adham, was very professional. He also managed to turn some pretty difficult lessons and specialized diving exercices, or even classroom sessions, into an exciting and fun-learning experience. He guided and trained in a very professional manner throughout the course. His educative approach was not only an excellent manner of passing on his skills and useful tips and tricks, but also a way to communicate his enthusiasm for the scuba diving world. All in all a wonderful experience. We will definitely come back.
