About Colona Divers El Gouna
From the moment we collect you from your hotel in our own private 30 seater bus you will find our instructors, guides and boat crew ready to help you with a big welcoming smile. Our team work well together to ensure your day is fun with both comfort and safety our priority. We visit two different sites every day, such as Siyoul, Galawa and Nugar just to mention a few, we also dive the wrecks at Nuhas, Rosalie Muller and Thistlegorm. As we are North of the busy diving resorts of Hurghada we are fortunate to be able to reach the more exclusive Northern sites. We pride ourselves with the comfort of our fleet. Our boats are all equipped for divers and snorkelers. However, if you wish to come out with us for a relaxing day without getting your hair wet, you will find the boats both spacious and comfortable.

Before the trip we knew from reviews, that Colonia Divers were the best diving center in El Gouna. Our five diving days exceeded all expectations. A special thanks to our DM Badawe. When we go back, we will definitely use Colonia Divers again.

Amazing service, our DM Ali were just perfect, professional and a really funny guy, Great guide with wonderful dives. We lived on New Francesca, a dive yacht. Crew was very friendly, cook made great lokal food and much of it. The wrecks and ocean life is amazing in the Red Sea. We got to see Bottlenosed Dolphins among other things. I can highly recommend Colona Divers for scuba lovers. Great trip

The scuba diving safari package included vehicle transfers to and from Hurghada Airport to the hotel or the boat itself, which I regard as a great advantage after a long flight. The New Francesca had recently returned from a re-fit and was looking great. The salon and upper deck had received a makeover and the guest cabins with their 'en suite' bathrooms had ample storage space and were fresh and comfortable. Once all the guests were onboard, we started the seven day safari diving on wrecks and reefs in the northern Red Sea. Throughout the trip, the boat crew did everything possible to make our diving special. The chef and his team provided us with meals of exceptional quality, three and sometimes even four times a day (afternoon snack!). Our very experienced instructor/guide Ali ensured that all aspects of the safety and security procedures were respected, and also chose the dives sites (normally four dives per day), relative to the prevailing weather conditions. Diving on S.S.Thistlegorm was the highlight of the week for me, but there were also many other exceptional moments, such as diving with a pod of eleven curious dolphins as well as being close to the largest Napoleon Wrasse imaginable. On the penultimate evening the whole boat crew arranged an evening of 'fun and games' for the guests. This was a wonderful gesture as we were able to interact with the guys whilst they were off-duty. The chef produced a huge cake to honour the event. I enjoyed the company of all the divers on board and am grateful for their advice and support. I have already asked the Director of Colona Divers to let me know as soon as the 2020 safari schedule has been established, so that I can enjoy another wonderful diving experience.

We were knew from reviews that Colona Divers were going to be the best in El Gouna but they exceeded every expectation beyond! The boats are luxurious with sun loungers front and back and comfortable seating all around. Ali and the crew ensure you have all the knowledge necessary (we were a mixture of experience from none to fully qualified!) and then the emphasis is on enjoying the experience! Having taken a Padi course many years ago, I assumed I would just breeze it....but actually I had total brain freeze and just couldn’t remember even the basics and also had a problem with my ears.....my wonderful dive instructor calmed me down (we were still on the surface of the water!) and just kept going over everything until I was confident to descend just 1 meter!! Ali took the remainder of the family as clearly I was going to need a bit more time but after 10 minutes I was calm and confident (and being led by the arm so I could just enjoy the dive!)and we joined the others. We went down to 9 metres and it was just surreal! The fish are beautiful and the coral as you’ve seen in photos....the feeling of being in the sea is pure tranquility. I became aware of 2 large grey objects approaching from behind me and my panic returned thinking they were sharks! My dive instructor signalled for me to breathe and check I was ok as I looked again to see that it was 2 dolphins!! Can you imagine? They literally swam beside me!! My family mostly missed them as they just happened to be looking into the coral at that point but their turn came eventually! As we had such a wonderful day, we rebooked another for the last day of our holiday and this time, a mother and baby dolphin swam amongst the divers and snorkellers for about 10-15 minutes! The baby was clearly loving the attention and doing flips up in the air......I think that memory will stay with me forever! So, if you are looking for a professional dive company that makes it fun and enjoyable.....not to mention the best lunch....Colona are the ones. Book before you travel as this company doesn’t tout for business around the hotels (I think primarily they are for experienced divers who book direct).....also they are 40 Euros per person cheaper than the ones vying for business at the hotel! One of the best days for exhilaration, overcoming fears, laughter and lifetime memories x
