Amazing diving center in Sharm el Skeikh

I just finished my PADI Advanced OWD course here and all I can say is that I will come back 100%
They are very professional and flexible.
Helped me to pick diving sites and tours to my liking.

Best regards Mr Pavel and Mr Ahmed

Amazing place to do Open Water course. Totally recommend!
We did the Open Water Course at the Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort location.

Firstly, our course was with Mustafa and he's just a true legend! Really glad had him teaching us. Amazing instructions and all round nice guy so special shout out to him

Facilities at Reef Oasis is great as well. It's probably one of the nicer resorts going.

The training pool area is nice and well set up. Great chill out area when you have a bit of theory studying to do!

The reef where you go train for the open water is also at the resort. You do have to battle your way through the general swimmers but once you're underwater, it's a good enough dive for a novice like us!

Worth mentioning that the rest of the team were also great! Friendly and helpful.

Would recommend them all round! Super glad we went with them 👍🏼👍🏼

Amazing Reef Oasis Dive Club!
What a wonderful and unforgettable experience I had with “Reef Oasis Dive Club”! 🤩

During our stay, my husband & I, in Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort, we decided to go for PADI diving course, and definitely that was the correct place to satisfy our decision.

Since the dive center is located inside the hotel, it was the most convenient as they have all the facilities on site, which means you don’t waste time and you are not far from getting back to your fun activities and relaxation in the hotel.

Everyone in the center is so helpful and friendly and once you meet them it will strike you how professional everyone is at doing their job!

We have met Mr. Ayman, who is the manager of the center, and he guided us through the courses and helped us to choose the suitable level to start as beginners.

We were extremely lucky to have Capitan Ashraf as our instructor. He made our experience remarkably satisfying. During the classes he was very alert and responsive to our learning needs and had a lot of patience to give us all tips and make us love diving to the extent that we were thinking to continue for higher level license if we were staying longer in Sharm.

I am proud that we got our Scuba Diving License from PADI and we definitely plan to come back to continue exploring diving and obtain higher certification ONLY with Captain Ashraf. 🌹

I cannot forget Mahmoud, who was really helpful and cheering and spreading a lot of positive energy around.
We really miss all good moments with Captain Ashraf and the crew. 🤗

The last, but not the least important point to note is the impressive level of hygiene specially due to COVID-19 precautions all equipments were sanitized, wrapped and assigned to you for the whole term of the classes.

Thank you guys, we will meet you soon 😉

Great Experience for Open Water Dive Course and boat tour
Jul 2021
We were visiting Sharm el Sheikh to get a PADI Open Water Diver Certificate with my wife as a part of our honeymoon. We initially checked the reviews and knew Reef Oasis Dive Club was good, but despite knowing that, the level of profesionalism was really impressive. That being said, I did not make an extensive research about other dive clubs in Sharm el Sheikh, so I cannot make a comparison.

Now I will not talk about how stunnigly beautiful either Ras Mohamed or whole Sharm el Sheikh coasts are for diving. If you are reading this you probably know it already. Instead, I will talk about our experience and people in general. Also, we stayed at Reef Oasis Blue Bay, so everybody I mention was working at that office (except boat tour I guess)

Our experience was great in general. The instructor team is reliable, know what they do, kind and patient. Thanks to them we had an experience of a lifetime and have taken on a new hobby!

Well as I said, whole instructor team is great, we observed many of them but our special thanks go to our instructor Ahmed Youssry first and foremost, and to our divemaster Mr. Hossam.

Ahmed was very kind, extremely patient and understanding, very professional, very good at what he does, trustworthy and disciplined. He is a great teacher and probably the kindest man I have ever met in Egypt. Both of us felt that we learned what we supposed to and more. Also, we feel that we made a lifelong friend.

After finishing our OWD, we joined a diving tour at Ras Mohamed National Park next day. It included two dives and one more as an additional option. We did two and opted out for snorkelling while the group was doing the third one. They also provide open buffet lunch on the boat (it was really good). Our divemaster Hossam was very experienced. He has been diving for 24 years now. One of the old guards indeed. He is one of those persons, that gives you an aura of confidence when you meet him. I don't know any other instructors/divemasters and maybe it will not be fair, but he should be one of the best out there. Thanks to him, we experienced some of the best moments of our lives underwater. And I mean out of fairytale moments!

Hands on heart, I can recommend working with both Ahmed and Hossam. Truky great people.

Now to some minor warnings;

-Please be careful around the corals. There are a lot of activity even during COVID times. Let us preserve this beauty together.

-BRING EUROS WITH YOU AND PAY IN CASH. The management is using fixed exchange rates that are not favourable for you. It makes a difference, trust me. If you want to pay in EGP or USD in cash, you are subject to fixed exchange rates. If you want to pay in EGP or USD by card, again, you are subject to fixed exchange rates.

-Some of the staff in management and some staff acting as support can be very rude. I would mentioned names if I remembered. You shrug off some things when you are on holiday, but people can be unpleasant. Be on your guard.

Same topic, different note: most of the staff are very friendly. For example, I remember Mr. Mahmoud very fondly. He is working at the beach office of the Dive Club at Reef Oasis Blue Bay. True gentlemen with a pure heart. I hope he gets everything he dreams of.

All in all, great experience.

Great Experience
Jun 2021 • Couples
I did the Advanced OWD and my Girlfriend did the normal OWD here.

Our Diving Instructor, Hossam Eldin Younes, is a very kind man and explained everything nice and easy to understand.

The Hotels Reef is insanely beautiful and there’s many Fish and we even saw a Turtle.

The Rest of the Team is very kind too, all of them speak english quite well.

100 % Recommended :)

I was a bit nervous about learning to dive (especially travelling alone) but I ended up having the best time. All the staff are really welcoming and couldn’t do enough to help me the whole time I was there.

Ahmed Rostom is a very professional instructor and I really enjoyed learning with him. He was always patient, calm and approachable. He explained things clearly and I always felt like I could ask questions. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
