Elite Diving is a British family Owned and managed dive center in Sharm El Sheikh Red Sea that offers PADI & BSAC courses for beginners and divers wanting to advance their training and experience. They also provide diving packages for qualified divers of different diving grades and ability. They go under the name of Divers United in resort.

Elite Diving has won the Best Red Sea dive center consecutively for the last three years, voted by UK Sports Diver Magazine readers. They have also won two world titles by becoming The Best Overseas Dive Center award for 2013 and 2014.

"The emphasis is put on safety, with fun being a very close second. You'll see by our reviews that there is a family atmosphere, with many of our divers returning regularly which gives us encouragement knowing we're doing something right. We welcome new divers as much as returning ones."

We're small enough to care but big enough to deliver.

I spent 4 days diving with Elite Divers/Divers United, which included completing my Advanced Open Water Course, and it was such a great experience! I cannot praise the team highly enough. Sean was my instructor and he was very professional, engaging and experienced and made sure we enjoyed ourselves. I was a solo traveller, but the team made me feel... More

To give you some indication of how good i thin Elite is, this was my ninth time going diving with them. This year has been tough for all dive centres in Sharm because of the travel restrictions in place but Elite has been able to team up with other centres so that you get to go out on a boat.... More

The experience with Elite was fantastic from start to finish. I organized a VIP pick up from the airport which worked v well. I did 5 days diving and then a 3 day rescue course. Every morning I was picked up from my hotel and dropped back to the hotel at the end of the day. All my gear was... More

Unfortunately a member of staff took a dislike to myself and made it a very very uncomfortable experience which will not be repeated. The other staff were great but put in a difficult position.

I have learned if you are seeking quality then go for the best, my trip to Sharm was mainly about this course and hallelujah I was lucky this center is one of the best. They treat you as family and you become family. Highly recommended.

Hi Omar, So glad you enjoyed doing the PADI Advanced with us. I do pride our dive center on the level of our instructors professionalism, enthusiasm and friendliness. The three key attributes I always look for when employing staff. They genuinely enjoy what they do and that shows when they guide or conduct a course. I was so pleased to... More

Sean, G, and Angie are very welcoming and provide a great balance between professionalism and enjoyment. Sean, my instructor, was extremely supportive and, though I could complete my certification due to congestion, he coached me well and explained how I could complete the open water dive part of the course. In the end, I met some really cool people at... More

Such a shame your cold got the better of you and stopped you completing your course. Better safe than sorry. Sean was very disappointed you couldn't finish your course. Let's hope you can come back soon to complete your certification, and get out of diving what you hoped for. You've already experienced some of the wonderful world under the water.... More

We had a fantastic experience with Elite. I felt safe and really supported as I prepared for my first dive. I felt that safety and comfort level were the top priorities. I really enjoyed the experience and I felt calm and well taken care of during my first dive. The guys, Gwyn and Shun were so positive and thorough. They... More

We are so glad you enjoyed it Kristin. Most people do. G said your enthusiasm was just as high on the second day. That's a sign that you may be hooked. We hope to see more of you in the future. We love meeting new people and welcoming regulars back. We hope you become one of our regulars. More

Gwyn, Moira, and Alun were very accommodating through every part of the experience. We had Gwyn all to ourselves for two days, which was perfect for a new diver and a refresher course. You can tell the whole family LOVES what they do, and it is contagious. We felt like part of the family!

We also enjoyed having you dive with us Kelly. Your enjoyment was very apparent from the big smile on your face. We would love to see you back so we can show you a lot more than you saw in the two days you dived in Sharm. There's so much more to see and experience. Fingers crossed it's soon. More
