I originally chose the Reef Oasis Dive Club to take the PADI Advanced Open Water course, of which I successfully earned that certification. In one short week I managed 18 dives which included boat and shore dives to Ras Mohamed, Shark Reef, Yolanda Reef, Ras Za’atar, Jackson Reef, Temple Reef, SS Thistlegorm, and The Blue Hole and the Canyon in Dahab.

The Red Sea is beyond amazing. The visibility was incredible and the water temperatures were so nice that I wished I could have stayed underwater for far longer than humanly possible.

My initial email correspondence was with Ms. Ola Slizankiewicz, who explained all of the dive details and answered all of my questions in detail and with professionalism.

Ayman Z. Salama greeted me with open arms and I felt very welcomed at the dive club. He was always available to answer my questions and moreover, he was very flexible with my dive schedule.

My instructor and subsequent guide for the entire week was Ahmed H. Hassan. He is a top-notch instructor and patiently guided me through the Advanced Open Water course. I also became certified in the Peak Performance Buoyancy and Enriched Air (Nitrox) specialty courses. I never felt rushed by Ahmed and I felt that he genuinely cared about my well-being. For example, Ahmed carried my cylinder, BCD, and regulators from the Reef Oasis vehicle to the entrance of the Blue Hole. It was a long and treacherous walk which he seemed to do with aplomb. Due to the Eid holidays, the entrance was crowded with people snorkeling and diving. Fortunately, Ahmed’s patience and fluency in Arabic ensured that we could get into the water without any issues.

The videography and photography of Mohammed Abdel Kader and Amir, both professional photographers with the resort, were amazing. Their skills are incomparable and well worth the money I spent to preserve my underwater memories.

I wish I knew the names of everyone, including the staff on the boats, who worked with me at the dive club. They collectively made my first dive experiences in the Red Sea very special.

Nadia el Adrou in the front office at the dive club is very kind. She processed my purchases of rash guards and other items, and explained in detail of my final invoice with me. It is worth noting that you will receive a print out of your dive log before you leave the dive club.

I will definitely return to the Reef Oasis Dive Club in Sharm El-Sheikh and look forward to future dives in the stunning Red Sea.

We flew to Sharm el Sheikh for some sun and diving. We booked the Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort mainly because the dive center is located on site and directly off the beach to the hotel.

My husband and my two children (ages 16 and 18) were occasional divers with PADI Open water certification. We booked a 10-dive package per person before arrival. By departure, they got their PADI AOW, Nitrox certificate and tons of wonderful dives and excursions. All under the motivation, professional guidance and excellent training of Ayman Ali. Ayman is calm, patient, super experienced, structured and organized. He made the night dives, reef dives, excursions to the Blue Hole and other sites memorable, enjoyable and safe. We were there for 10 days in Sharm and dove 9 days (one day excursion to Cairo). The kids were so enthusiastic to get up every morning to get their two-dives with Ayman. Every dive with him was educational, fun and a wonderful discovery of the underwater world and its inhabitants.

The dive center’s staff, crew and dive masters were all very friendly, accommodating and professional. They are very cultural diverse and speak multiple languages. Special acknowledgment to the two gentlemen (unfortunately I don’t have the names) who were on site to help with the equipments before and after each dive. The facilities were welcoming, clean and practically situated- especially their beach site where you just merge yourself down to the reef.

If you ever make it to Sharm el Sheikh, I would highly recommend Reef Oasis Dive Center for an excellent experience.

This school is amazing! Me and my husband came here for regular diving while my son completed his PADI Rescue Diver Certification.

In order to feel more secure we started off with a nice refresher, which went as expected. Our instructor for this particular dive, Fabian, was very calm, friendly and explained the matter in a comprehensive manner. He even motivated my husband to do his Advanced Open Water diver course, which was a great opportunity.

On all subsequent dives my husband and I were accompanied by Ashraf and Hossam el Dine who took us on amazing dives in the area. Both were really great, helpful and caring and we liked diving with them a lot. Thank you very much for giving us so much confidence and for providing us with such a great time.

While the reef directly off shore is very beautiful and absolutely worth seeing, short bus ride offers the opportunity of up to three beautiful boat dives per day! The boats are very nice, spacious and the staff here is also very helpful, friendly and funny and they prepare amazing food.

Our son loved his Rescue Diver course which was thought by Ayman. They worked together for three consecutive days, did a lot of exercises and finally our son managed to be now a certified Rescue Diver with the amazing support of Ayman.

As far as we could see, all of the instructors at this school speak multiple languages fluently and the school tries to pair divers with instructors / dive masters who speak customers' respective languages.

Even though our daughter didn't dive, she was still able to join us on the boat and got some great snorkel experiences at several dive sites. The dive instructors motivated her to even test diving with great patience and kindness.

All instructors showed great care for the environment under and above water which we appreciated a lot.

Thank you very much, we had a really great time, and we will certainly come back.

I was there for almost a week and took my PADI Open Water course. The course was taking partially at their pool and partially at their house reef in front of the hotel beach named “Temple”. During the course, I saw of course the amazing coral reef and various spices of Red Sea fish, as well as the moray, turtle and blue spotted ray.

As for safety aspect, my coach Ali Saif is extremely patient and reliable, and is highly recommended! He knows how to make you feel comfortable and relaxed under the sea if you are a beginner. The whole team is professional from the instructor to the young boys who do the backup preparations. I appreciate everyone there at diving club.

Pricewise, I think it’s quite fair, but diving is generally not a cheap activity so don’t expect something with very low price. And comparing the PADI course worldwide with it here and the reef and marine live you would see in Red Sea, I think it’s absolutely worth the price.

I also took two days with 5 fun dives after completing the course. We went to the Ras Mohammed national park and Straits of Tiran and they were just astonishing. I prefer Ras Mohammed personally because you can visit the underwater cave, the deep vertical wall, all types of marine animals and corals. We saw a crocodile fish lying on the bottom sand and was cute. Other teams at the same day even encountered whitetip shark and whale shark. Both professionals and beginners and find interesting things to do there.

My husband did the Advanced Open Water course there and also took the night dive. He thinks it was one of the most amazing experiences he’s ever had.

Unfortunately, we didn’t see shark or eagle ray or any big thing there this time. But the journey in general was fantastic!

I did about 15 dives over a fortnight. House reef Ras Mohammed and Tiran.
The office staff are really helpful and friendly, the dive support staff are excellent and the Dive Instructors are just the best. They manage dive groups to maximise your individual bottom time based on air consumption efficiency and take you to the best sites. They know their stuff are helpful and are great company. The boat ‘Overseas’ is well run and comfy. I will definitely use again. !!!
I also booked a night snorkel with Alex who was brilliant with my young son, showing him all sorts of things we might easily have missed.
Through Mo, who was also brilliant with my family, we booked 2 private speedboat snorkel trips to Tiran. Alex actually accompanied us as guide on both those and he was brilliant. Across all snorkelling we saw loads of fish life, and some less commonly seen stuff like octopus squid and a shark!! Alex also managed to find the dolphins on the way back. My boy was buzzing!!!! Thanks to all staff from me, my wife and Shark Boy

5 years ago I visited Sharm with my then 13 year old son for a week of diving. We ran into a group of technical divers, and I felt an immediate gadget lust, and a sense of adventure, and a feeling of this being the next level of diving. After returning that afternoon I wrote on Facebook we would be back as soon as my son was old enough.

That is the background for this review.

Last month we had a vacation, we had not been diving since last summer, and we realized the time had come. Checking out dive centers around we came upon Reef Oasis Dive Club (from hereon RODC), and saw their great reviews in overall, and even more important their availability of the PADI TEC courses.

We got in touch with them ahead of time, and made our inquires, exchanged quite a few messages, and made sure we had a common understanding of what we were looking for and their requirements.
That is always recommended, checking out your next dive ahead of time, and even get in those minor details like sizing of rental equipment and such. And more important constraints and limitations, so we were well prepared when we arrived.

Pavel, our TEC instructor is one of the most experienced instructors around, with more than 20 years experience as a diver in the military, before spending the last 16 years as a TEC instructor, having more than 500 dives below 100 meters in the last years.
WhileTEC diving is inherently more dangerous than regular recreational diving by nature, we have rarely felt safer than going through the course with him. Most important was his ability to showcase the personality traits recommended for TEC diving, going forth as a glowing example, and teaching by his nature.
His calm, his self-suffiency, and teamleading qualities makes us want to return for the next courses.
Being a great teacher, making sure we got the technical lessons, always having room for questions, and answers based on all his experience also adds to our knowledge we are returning.

All in all, 4 days filled with hardcore theoretical and practical exercises, before a final dive, swithcing off bottles at 21 meters, and a passed exam.
What's not to love?

And after returning home, I've been going through how to improve my recreational diving based on this, there is so much to learn in this course that helps you improve what you're doing below the water.

Five star dive center, five star course, five star instructor.

I did my Open Water in October and had such a great time booked immediately to go back to do my Advanced Open Water which I completed in December 2022. Overall the club is fantastic, great location, local reef is spectacular but wide range of boat trips as well to Tiran Island and Ras Mohammed (amongst others). I'll definitely be back. The instructors and staff are all incredibly helpful. They even washed and dried my gear after the last dive

I booked 5 dives. The check dive is required even if I dived the previous month, So 1 dive from the beach for nothing. Long waiting time at the center, at the port for the departure of the boat dive. The dive sites without extra fees are not interesting. Extra fees and the dive price are very expensive (37.50€/dive for the package) compared to other centers in Egypt.
Last day, I have to come back twice to pick up the equipments because they are not ready. Poor customer service.

Good morning Cathy, Thank you for sharing your comments. It is helpful for us in order to improve our services. We would like to break down our feedback and share below facts: 1) There is obviously some misunderstanding regarding the orientation dive: It s not a check dive, it is called an orientation for two aspects : -> Introduce to our guests the local dive regulations - >See how the diver's level underwater (Good air consumption or advise 15 liter tanks, good buoyancy or requires more attention..etc). Our house reef, called The Temple, where you did your first dive is one of the best in Sharm. Our advantage is that we simply walk down the jetty and jump in from shore in convenient time! Other dive clubs must to use boats to visit it, therefore we consider the first dive from shore as an advantage not a disadvantage. 2) We are sorry that you had to wait. In case of many customers being served at the dive center, the waiting time can be longer. The waiting time in the port depends on the boat traffic and local police, which we cannot predict or influence. 3) The dive sites which you have visited during boat trips are famous Gordon Reef and Jackson Reef in Tiran Strait , as well Ras Ghozlani in Ras Mohamed National park, All are considered interesting and beautiful by most of the divers. 4) Regarding the cost of the dives, we believe that costs has been explained before you have placed your booking. Our prices are average in Sharm el Sheikh and cannot be compared to other parts of Egypt due to significant differences. Our dive package includes lunch and soft drinks while other dive centers put this as an extra. The price reflects the quality of service ( starting with sales team support and follow up, front office service, boats, transportation, quality of food, instructors professionalism and etiquette, back staff help with equipment handling, etc). 5) The equipment washing is extra service, being courtesy of our back staff. Your equipment was drying after being washed and hanged by our team. Thank you once more for your feedback, and we hope that we explained all points , specially about the orientation dive, We hopefully see you again, we wish you a wonderful day.

What a great team, from Nadia & Fredrica on the front desk who could not do enough for you, to the Instructors & guides (Ibrahim, Mohammed, Ahmed et al), to the boat crews and the guys who did an excellent job of cleaning and drying my gear. Thank you to all. Hope you enjoyed my red Padi T Shirt.
5 star padi resort. Green fins. Good selection of activities, beach diving daily at Temple dive site, boat trips to Ras Mohammed and Tiran Islands on alternate days, and special trips to Thistlegorm and Blue hole. If you haven't dived the Thistlegorm get it off you bucket list (although the 4.30 start is a bit of a shock) it is a fantastic experience and I don't normally like the wrecks. Blue hole is one of 2 in the world, another great experience but be warned only basic services available at dive site but the lunch at Ali Babas was beautiful. Overlooking the red sea
Boats were clean, good food, not overcrowded. The crews were very helpful.
Nice selection of souvenirs and dive equipment available from the shop. I especially liked the aluminium cup with a carabiner attached (save our oceans)
Overall, a well run, friendly, safe operation.
Top tip. Book 10 dives in advance to obtain maximum & best discounts from website. Sales team were very helpful. Additional dives at same rate
Note: need to keep a track on the top up fees for parks and trips so as not z surprise at the end.
Resort also offers dive insurance if you don't have any. Better safe than sorry, don't want to be arguing over chamber access in an emergency.
If on international regulators, take a couple of spare adapters, they can be in short supply depending upon demand on the day. Although team quickly sorted out any problems. Just a tip.
Water temp was 27 to 28. Was OK with tropical shorty. But its a personal choice.
Note. Alm gear available to rent, lots of courses available from introduction to technical. Or you could just enjoy the wonders of the crystal clear Red Sea.
