After checking out the dive centre based at our hotel I decided to outsource and chose these guys, and I’m glad I did! They offered free pick ups which is always a bonus and the price to dive was very good also.
The dive boat was very clean and well maintained which automatically puts you in a good frame of mind as to the operation and the crew were fantastic also.
They tried to visit the different dive sites at times when they were pretty empty of other dive boats which was very good, nobody likes getting crowded and finned on the head! For the 3 days diving I did I was never in a group larger than 4 AOW divers which again was great, it meant you could get your photos with ease, and the guides were very knowledgable and didn’t rush you at all which I like.
My wife who is a non diver also enjoyed going out on the boat.
Overall I had 3 great days diving with a great crew, my only gripe which really was not that important was I wanted to dive with Nitrox but their charging machine was not working.

I had a fantastic time. The boat was almost empty, and the diver-to-instructor ratio could not have been better. They are an unbelievably knowledgeable group, and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to dive at a reasonable price in Hurghada or El Gouna.

We just finished our PADI Open Water Diver course with Dive Hurghada and we have the most amazing 3 days behind us.

We found the company online and as complete beginners in diving, we trusted the reviews that actually do them no justice - everything, from the initial booking, payment and the whole communication with Dalia was seamless. Sasha, who took care of us “on shore” was absolutely amazing(she even spoke one of the lesser known languages we speak as well which made the whole experience more “homey” and enjoyable!) and our instructor Bassem, who took care of us on the boat and under water, was incredible. The whole team on the boat was so positive, nice and the atmosphere was filled with positivity. We were complete beginners and the whole team made us feel comfortable and safe at all times. We did 6 dives altogether and on the last one, we unexpectedly swam and dive with dolphins which was one of the highlights of not just this trip and course but my life! Thank you, Bassem!!!

My boyfriend also forgot his sunglasses and hat in their office and they brought everything to our hotel reception woth no charge or anything like that. This company is really amazing, customer oriented, everyone speaks great and they exceeded our expectations in every possible way.

I can highly recommend Dive Hurghada and I can’t wait for the next underwater adventure with them!

Dive hurghada

We dived for 4 days with Dive Hurghada in December 2021. While the instructors were great, I wouldn’t recommend the club for their organisation and honesty.

We had many issues with the boats throughout our trip, sometime landing on a very packed and sometimes dirty boat with a line to get in the water and dive. The owner told that it was because his boat couldn’t host the diving trips for some administrative reasons…well, fine! That explains the “boat lottery”.

Additionally, we had the “little surprise” of an exchange rate of 1 euro equal 20 Egyptian pounds … instead of 17 per the market at that time. This increased our bill by roughly 15% - Regardless of whether we paid cash or by card. The center is already not cheap but it made it insanely expensive per dive for the region with that. We were meant to pay 595 euros (see online invoice) and ended up paying close to 700 euros. When we raised it to the finance person, we were told it was in the email we received (it was not as you can see) then we’re told “bye bye now” (literally) to get out of their shop. A real rip off on top of not being professional.

We also left our diving trip with Covid … when we warned the center, we just never got a single response. Almost to think they did not care their instructors could be positive or that the boats they rented spots on were not safe for their clients.

Finally, it took them close to a month to respond to my email for my advanced certification. Again many text messages unanswered. Finally in January some messages asking information to make the request to Padi (like my birthdate for instance) - as if they had just started the process … not to say that all that information was not already in the Padi’s pre-dive paperwork.

In conclusion, we wouldn’t recommend this dive center but if you do choose them, do make sure you pay online and that you read all the small terms and conditions in your contract with them!

We are not very sure what is the real motive of this review, because definitely, this is not for the purpose of helping us enhancing our service in any way. Facts remain that: Prices are clearly stated on our website. Clients sign acknowledgement of reading our terms and conditions before payment. All payment details including the difference in exchange rates are communicated via email to all clients and the link to our terms and conditions is always available in every email we send to our clients. All facts can be used for multiple stories. Your story, your truth. We did not lie to you. And you received your certificate despite the delay which was out of our hands due to failure in the system. So we are not dishonest or liars in any way. Venting on social media 6 months after receiving your service is a bit bewildering. Yet, we respect your opinion and we wish you good luck diving with other centers.

My friends and I took a three-week trip through Europe and Egypt, and our one day diving in Hurghada was, for most of us, the best part of the entire trip. Two friends snorkeled, three friends did intro diving, and I dove with some of the crew as I was the only certified member of our group. All of us enjoyed our experience. We explored a reef relatively close to shore that was easy for all divers but still experienced many species of fish.

Communicating with the company was very easy, and Dahlia always responded quickly. The crew members were all very kind, and we enjoyed a few games of cards after our dives. Lunch was simple but good. I was hoping for more Egyptian food, but I was satisfied nonetheless! Everyone knew what they were doing, and I felt very safe the entire time. I highly recommend Dive Hurghada if you are planning a dive in the Red Sea. They offer amazing hospitality, a comfortable boat, and excellent diving!

Me and my brother went diving, snorkelling and swimming into the Red Sea for two long days thanks to Dive Hurghada. My brother, having previous diving experience, made five inmersions total (great second and third inmersions, lots of marine fauna including dolphins). I myself, being an absolute beginner, spent the first day snorkelling and then felt compelled to do my first two introduction dives the second day.
The experience in itself was great: the first day we were in a big boat, with many people, instructors and diving masters of different companies, but we could have Dive Hurghada's Muhammad all to ourselves. He is an experienced, very serious diver, and also a great guy to meet and chat with. The second day we were in a more private, smaller boat, this time only us and a family of four. Both Muhammad and Justina were great to learn and dive with.
Driving from hotel to dock, boat crews, food and drinks on board were pretty good for the comparatively cheap price. Communication and organization before arrival could have been a little better, but in site everything was handled in a very professional and satisfactory way. We would absolutely recommend Dive Hurghada. And again, thanks for all to Muhammad and Justina!

On my three day trip to Hurghada, i wanted to get my PADI Advanced Open Water Certificate in a very tight schedule.
Ahmed and the team were very attentive and flexible to make it happen on time.
The boat was huge, modern with all the necessary safety equipment and amenities.
The crew was friendly and professional at all time.
Margaret, the dive master, was the star of the team, with almost 33 years of diving experience, she taught me, brief me and had the patience to bring me up to speed and successfully help me pass all the practical and theoretical tests.

I would recommend Dive Hurghada to any beginner or advanced diver.

I am a qualified diver and my partner is a compete novice so we booked a 2x dive 1x day trip for us both.

I went with the qualified group - the dive itself was good following a guide around a reef (we even saw a turtle!) However, there were no allocated buddies/no buddy check so I felt safety was a little slack. Although was a very good length at 1hr 4min.

For my partner the instructor who was going to take him on his introduction dive was also doing a PADI course for some other people so my partner was waiting on the surface for 1hr by himself whilst he did their course. When he came up with the trainees by partner was rushed into the water with him. The dive then was only 10 minutes long. They took some photos of him but wanted to charge £50 to have them sent over!

Also we emailed the company for our pick up times etc but weren't told until very late the night before.

Overall not a great experience and would not return.

Dear Rebecca Sorry to hear this. We investigated the matter and those in charge were coached accordingly. Thank you for your feedback. Usually, the experience we provide is good for both levels (professionals and novices). We are having a new team, and we are training and coaching them so at this stage, it is expected to have some issues. Again, we thank you for your review as it is good guidance for us. We are sorry this was your experience and we work on enhancing our services always.

Well where do I begin, we arranged to do the PADI Open water course in August 2019 and we had never even done a try dive.

The people: every single person from the office/Admin to the Dive Instructors and crew couldn't be any more professional and helpful. The service they provide and how they take care of you should be an inspiration to any business. They went out of there way to make sure everything was perfect even coming to the local town and helping us get back to our hotel at 10 at night after diving in the morning which was well above and beyond. My girlfriend has a previous spinal injury so we were concerned about getting in out of the water while kitted up but the staff made sure everything was ok!

Diving: the instructors were top class and clearly very experienced, they made sure everyone was safe and enjoyed the diving which in turn made it great environment to lean in.

The Boat and Equipment: The boat was top notch and the staff looked after it to make sure it stayed that way, the class room was really nice and cool and the upper deck was clean and a good place to chill between dives, sun loungers on the bow were good too. The dive equipment all seemed fresh and in good nick and when anything extra was needed it was never to much trouble.

Food: I'm always I little unsure about food abroad especially when on a boat trip/exscursion but I can honestly say it was great, we did an extra few days unplanned diving after our course finished so we ended up eating more onboard than in our hotel and it was lovely, well cooked and options for veggies etc

I am looking to go diving again in summer and I will definitely be going with Dive Hurghada.

Dive Hurghada team, thanks for making our trip amazing and see you all again soon.

I planned to do 2 days fundiving with them and ended up taking 6 days of diving and a nitrox and a deep dive course, because I just felt very comfortable from the beginning on and really enjoyed my time diving with the crew from dive hurghada. Everything got organized very well and easy going - they also offer a transfer from and to the hotel directly to the boat. In my opinion they work very professional and have a lot of experience, the boat is really nice, the equipment ist top and the instructors are nice. The groups are quite small and the dive sites are amazing - I would highly recommend dive hurghada!
