I had a great 6 days diving with PDL. I booked via email with the centre, this was easy. On arrival into resort they confirmed pick up for my first day, this was to be from their Hurghada centre. Check in was quick, and easy. Once on the boat the guys were fantastic, they really made me feel at ease, I could tell that safety was top of their list. Briefings were very good through out my 6 days diving. I had 3 days diving out of Makadi , 3 out of Hurghada. On all boats the food was great, and the boat boys were very helpful. Many thanks to Sharief, Hossam & John for 6 days fantastic diving. Hope to see you again soon!!!

Fantastic dive experience, I went with my twelve year old son who had never dived before, I have my open water licence but had not dived since 2005, I had to do quick refresh on the kit etc, then had a dive. My son whilst I was doing this was having a one to one instruction with a dive leader, he put my son at ease and took him down to eight metres, he loved it. After we had completed our respective dives, we had some lunch which was great food, we travelled to another reef and dived again together and saw spectacular corals and beautiful fish in abundance. The boat was very clean and a great crew made the trip fun and safe, would highly recommend this company as the reefs they took to you weren’t busy and they had great knowledge of the wildlife and cared about the ecosystem. Twenty minute transfer from sunrise to the harbour,, it cost me £130 for the trip which is very good compared to previous dives I have done.

I requested a private dive as I prefer to take my time rather then in a group. I ended up paying 20 Euro more then a group planned dive. However I ended in the morning on a boat with more then once divers. My first dive was just horrible and dangerous. We went down to about 23 meters and the first 30 minutes where fine, my guide was not wearing a dive computer and consistently kept checking and pulling on my wrist. Once we where half way trough the guide signed to return and get back, what we dove in 30 minutes he swam back in less then 10 minutes, I could not keep up with him and lost him beyond visibility. he clearly did not wanted to dive and expected me to do the same, that's not what I came for. I had more then enough air left to dive back at the same speed, first dive was only 40 minutes with 100 bar left, ridiculous to was. And to be left alone which is against all diving rules just shows how poor this diving shop is, money is what matters, nothing else. The second dive of the day ended up even worse. The main instructor explained the plan and we changed guides, overall the dive was fine even tough I paid extra to have a private dive however we ended up on the hotel beach in the afternoon around 1PM, when the beach is terrible hot, I hired equipment so I had to walk in my bear feet over the piping hot sand of th beach with all my equipment, when I finally managed to pass the beach we had to walk up to the dive shop and the pavement was as hot at the beach, I ended up inside the dive shop to save myself from the heat of the sun, Inside they got angry and mentioned I should walk back, obviously not only bare feet so I went to remove my equipment slowly, one person came to help to speed up the process as they where very un happy, without me seeing he pulled my weights and they fell straight on my feet, immediately large swelling and bleeding but they did not care, finally I went back to our room and out ice cold water on my feet to reduce swelling. I ended up paying extra for a private dive, but got a dive with multiple divers, got injured and no one cared and got left alone on my first dive of the day at 23 meters. I pre planned a second day for diving as well, same, no private dive, however the dive was fine, Second dive i did not go as they would end up of the beach again. This time I noticed the boat direction and we where just in front of our hotel. The explanation of the instructor was just to trick you. Overall a very poor diving shop with irresponsible guides and diving shop helpers, I ended paying extra for nothing, got wounded and are left with a scar and horrible experience. I will adress this to Padi as well as it does put people in danger. I am diving few times per year only and want to enjoy the time and not to out in danger.
