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.

My wife and I came to Sharm el Sheikh to dive during our trip from New York City to Cairo and Israel. We have been diving for years in various places in the caribbean including Belize and Cozumel. We were surprised at the level of professionalism. We thought that maybe it was a British "thing" but we didn't experience such... More

I had the pleasure of diving with elite for both my PADI certifications as well as diving for fun over the months of July and August this year.

Hi Charlie, Thanks for the great review. I know the Instructors also enjoyed your company. They are an awesome team of dive and marine life educators. They enjoy what they do so much, it has become their way of life. Having new characters like yourself and your colleagues to teach and dive with just adds to their satisfaction. We hope... More

Recently returned from my 18th (eighteenth) dive holiday with Elite Diving (and I know people, who have dived with them more often). Doesn't it tell you all? A big percentage of Elite Diving's customers are repeat guests. Personally I wouldn't dream of using another dive company. Elite Diving is simply the best! They use big comfortable boats, and safety is... More

18 times? Whaw! It's always a pleasure seeing you come back Lene and especially when you tell us of all your other travels and places you have visited to dive. That in itself gives us great satisfaction that you still want to come back so regularly to dive with us. See you next time. More

We were so happy to see you return once again. I think this was one of the longest periods that you haven't dived with us. It was a 6 months gap this time, but thank goodness you made it out 6 weeks later again in June, although you can't write about your experience with us then due to the rules... More

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.

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

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.
