A professional outfit that runs good diving and snorkel trips. However, the dive master and his girlfriend should really ask people's permission before they take photos and videos of customers and then circulate them on social media.

What a wonderful company, and a fantastic time snorkeling! My husband and I spent two days in the care of Ziyad, Ali, and the crew here at the start of Eid.

The trips were extremely well organised, started and ended on time, and were a great value for your SAR. Ziyad helped us book easily on WhatsApp (even helping arrange a private taxi return to our hotel!), and all safety/Covid-19/coast guard protocols were followed.

The boat was very clean and well-maintained, and the day trips included lunch, drinks, and plenty of sunshine on the Red Sea waters. All the nemos, dory fish, eels, sting rays, and coral beds you could ask for. In two days, we went to four amazing reefs, including a shallow ship wreck! Their dive shop rents or sells anything you could want, and the staff are all friendly and very professional.

This is a top class operation... trips book quickly, so don't hesitate! Call them and reserve your spot right away. Thank you, Ziyad, Ali, Farid, and the rest of the guys. We will be back!

Went there on my own last October 31, 2020 to join a boat trip for scuba diving. No issue about me being a single female joining (I have an open water scuba diving license). The fee for the boat trip includes 2 dives, food and drinks on board. Went to the shop first as I needed to rent gear. I paid an extra for the instructor as I have not gone scuba diving for a year. Meet up time was around 7:30 am and got back almost 4 pm. There were 5 divers including me, 1 instructor, 1 crew, 1 captain, and family of 3 going snorkeling. I got dizzy after the first dive and the instructor was kind enough to give me meclizine. Missed the second dive because of this so I just snorkeled on the second site. Overall a great and smooth experience, will come back to them when I'm in Jeddah.

I arranged a day of diving with Desert Sea Divers whilst visiting Jeddah in Nov 2019. Paid 450 SAR for 3 shore dives with all equipment provided. Diving was direct entry from the FAL Resort, and since it was a regular working day it wasn't very busy. Unfortunately I didn't get to try the boat diving as my schedule didn't coincide with the boat. Great visibility and quite a bit to see, and great to be diving in Saudi Arabia!

A first for most of us. Overall, incredible trip.
Everyone was super nice, professional and trouble free.
Highly recommend this to all divers. They cater to all skill levels. We were with our instructor, so we roamed freely and on our own schedule.
The wreck dive is a must. Especially, to check of your first wreck dive after your cert.

The organisation is efficient and welcoming and the boat set-up excellent. There can be an interminable wait for the coastguard depending on their mood. We went out to a far reef to a wreck. Buddies were assigned but then there was a decision to go as a larger group - all thirteen divers. This was far too many. A good bit of the dive was spent waiting and there just was not enough to see. The second dive, exactly the same thing happened. It was not a memorable day at all. There just isn't much down there. But then again, there might have been had we not been playing follow the leader'.

I've been regular customer with DSD for over eight years now. Very organized operation and they try their best to keep it that way.

Unfortunately some delays might occur sometimes but mainly due to late arrival of guests.

You need to be lucky to get reservation, do not book any flights or cars before they send you email with booking confirmation. The website reservation might be misleading sometimes as it gives impression that your request is confirmed one.

Also important to note, Jeddah unfortunately (and strangely) still lack diving operators. This is the only one I could find back then and still till this date. I know others exist but that require knowing people who joined trips with them. Online search return only DSD. Despite that, their prices still not changed over the years.

DSD runs boat trips only during the weekends (FRI and SAT), their staff are very helpful and trying their best to charm your trip.

To join the trip you need passport or resident ID together with your dive card. You can pay cash or using card.

Boat normally depart around 8:30 but would be good to show at shop 7:30 to give time for finalizing equipment rent and paperwork.

Divers, snorkels and just passenger can join those trips.

The desert sea divers are a very professional, well equipped and smoothly streamlined organization for snorkeling and scuba diving activities. I've been dealing with them since 2009 and they never fail to impress me every time.

We enjoyed diving with Desert Sea Divers in Jeddah. The guides were nice and knowledgeable, and the sights were amazing. Please note, we dived with them in 2015, but that wasn't an option under when we visited, so I chose the oldest date possible...

Have dived with Desert Sea Divers over 50 times in the past 8 years. Dive boats are well-maintained with excellent skippers. Dive leaders are professional and knowledgeable. Would have no hesitation in recommending them.
