Hassan at Rixos Sharm offered an attractive private package for my family of 5 (3 “kids” aged 20, 23 & 25) to spend a half day snorkeling and a first experience at Scuba diving.

The instructors Shawky and Salmar were first class. Very clear instructions that left all feeling confident. All divers were quick to progress and therefore benefited from the instructors showing the best of both reefs that we visited. The fish were varied and plentiful.

The snorkeling guide (sorry forgot name) was adventurous, encouraging and an impressive diver.

The captain and crew onboard VIP Pyramid were pleasant, easy going and clearly have a good reputation with the other boats we tied up with.

Everyone was fun - such nice people to spend 4.5 hours with onboard a beautiful boat.

And last recognition to the bus driver who was very safe, which is a challenge on some of these local roads.

As we said on the boat, it’s beautiful to have the opportunity to mix with and learn from different nationalities and cultures - respect and appreciation.

We traveled to Egypt last week of May 2021 in an attempt to recover our family after the pandemic and after the loss of loved ones. Little did we know that we were about to have one of the most wonderful journeys of our lives, that is taking the PADI certifications on the shores of Red Sea with the best PADI instructor that you can find in Sharm el Sheikh, Ahmad Nassar!
We were a group of 4, 2 couples. I was the only one in the group not really keen in having this experience due to the fact that I almost drowned during a swim with a friend when I was 18:) I decided to do it in order to be with my husband and my friends and perhaps attempt to break this mental barrier. It was one of the best experiences in my life and this was mostly due to my instructor, Nassar. He is extremely professional, very calm and with a composed demeanor and he manages perfectly that fine balance between supporting you and letting you be independent. I am a person that was almost incapable to go underwater even in a pool and Nassar somehow miraculously manged to get the Scuba Diver out of me. It was a breathtaking experience and almost therapeutic. I can not recommend Nassar enough and since he is also certified to teach children I would definitely consider this as well!
We contracted the services via Ahmed from Rixos Segate Diving Center, who took the time and explained to us ind etail everything that needs to be done.

The environment at the diving location was excellent, with the entire team being friendly, professional, respectful, helpful and with a nice humor:). We benefited from the assistance of the entire team, starting with the preparation of equipment, underwater supervision, underwater photography (Mohammed) to keep great memory for us.
Hopefully we will able to visit Egypt again and for sure if we ever come again we will 100% dive with our wonderful instructor Nassar!

We had a several dives arranged by Pyramids diving center and can really recommend it! Everything was well and safely arranged. Our diving instructor Mohamed Abdelkarim was very attentive and professional, taking good care on the shore and underwater.
We highly recommend the instructor and hiring a personal boat. You will have a nice time with your buddy, not depending on other divers.

Pyramids diving school is simply the best! We contacted them from the U.K. prior to arriving in sharm el sheikh and their contact and response was fast and efficient. We have been thinking about doing the PADI OPEN WATER Qualification for a while and I couldn’t recommend this centre more! They even accommodated to pick my parents up and drop them off at the beach to watch us, even though they weren’t diving themselves!
Our instructor Ahmed Nassar (283372) was awesome. He had lots of knowledge, made us feel at ease and was a good laugh the whole time. I would highly recommend him as he really was the best!

If you want to learn Diving or just go for fun dives this is the company in sharm El sheikh named pyramids diving center five star one . We come each year more than twice time just to dive with our lovely dive trainer Mustafa , we felt safe and comfortable the whole time , during our courses had enough space to practice the skills in our own with out pressure , we enjoyed it so much that we directly went for the advanced course with best trainer ever .
Mustafa very professional dive trainer , show us alot of amazing dive spots in diffrent places in the red sea , He made us fall in love for scuba diving time underwater .the whole company is so warm and adjustive to the individuals , i would love to experience every single day with Mustafa on the water again .

Mustafa always Diver # 1 in sharm Elsheikh .

From the moment we met Bryan at the hotel, who took the time to talk to us and work out exactly what we wanted from the trip, to meeting Bassam and Saad and all the guys on the boat, the trip was everything we could have wanted.
Saad was such a great guide to show us the beauty of the Red Sea, he made us feel safe and comfortable and tailored the dives to each of our experience levels. If we come back I would certainly hope to dive with him again. Thank you Saad.
Everyone was so kind and respectful and made us feel very safe and confident.
The food on board was amazing, so delicious and fresh that I’m really glad we chose this option. The photos and video are such good quality, there is no pressure to buy, but they are an amazing record of your trip.
Honestly, just do it, you won’t be disappointed!!

We had a wonderful time diving with VIP Pyramids. From start to finish, the entire team was professional, patient, caring and attentive. Because my husband and I had not gone diving in five years, we took a mandatory refresher course (2 tank shore dives). We signed up for two tank dives to rasmuhamed and picture opps at White Island. Due to my own issues with equalization and slight anxiety, it was encouraged that we secure a private guide for our next day dive. We had Julian, a senior dive instructor, for both days. He was excellent. Very calming, informative, and his expertise led to a very joyful and comfortable experience for both me and my husband. The boat trip to our dives and to White Island is the highlight of our trip to Sharm so far. It’s a must. Ask for Julian!
