Having never dived before I was really happy with how the course went. The instructor taught at a good pace and I was boat diving by the end. Highly recommended.

The food is fantastic and the crew and Captain are excellent. The second week was daily boat diving. The guides at the Red Sea College are very very knowledgable... More

Next day went in to the center and my wife started the course with Sambo who was very very patient and hardworking... More

What can I say? In the words of Ghandi (one of the College's guide), when I asked him of how rentable is to deal with only one customer, eventually, after the October happening, late November: " Diving is not about money, is about life style ". And yes, they have a really diving live style. All, from management to guides... More

Run by Guy & his team (Matt has since left) these guys know their stuff. They run a slick operation and... More

I did my open water course with RSDC and found the instructors to be very friendly and supportive, they were sensibly strict about completing skills properly and diving safely, which is obviously reassuring. The dive centre is right next to the beach in Naama Bay, so it's an easy short walk with kit on to get into the water to... More

In the 6 dives he did, the staff were brilliant (in particular Hannah, Hannah and Gandy Lewis). I also went with them for a day on... More

We had never been diving before and had booked to do our PADI Open Water Diving course. At a reasonable price already they sweetened the deal with an extra days free diving from the boat...
