Wasn't sure what to expect - not with the Red Sea Diving as I had high expectations having done a few shore dives but with the company. Desert Sea Divers exceeded my expections all the way around - very professional, very clean, very good dives - we did a wreck dive on the "Chicken Wreck" - aptly named as it was a reefer ship with a load of frozen chicken then two other dives - overall a great experience - what made it even better was that the last dive of the day was my 100th dive and during the last 15 minutes of the dive we were joined by a pod of wild dolphins - they were so interactive - playful, fun, inquisitive. My 100th Dive was memorable in so many ways including the service provided by Desert Sea Divers.

Although I have been working and living in Saudi Arabia since 2007, I only began scuba diving in 2010. Diving off the west coast of Saudi arabia is truly an unforgettable experience. Since 2010, I have accumulated more than 40 dives in the Red Sea and quite a number of my dives have been with Desert Sea Divers. For approximately 60 euros per day you are taken on their boat about 1.5 hours off the Jeddah coast. The days lasts from 8am to 5.30pm. The price includes 3 tanks, weights and as much food and refreshments as you need.There are over 35 different dive sites off the Jeddah coast which are a mix of wrecks and reefs. Each dive trip consists of 3 dives which are usually to 1 wreck and 2 reefs. Dolphins have followed the boat on most trips I have done.I doubt if there is cheaper diving anywhere else in the world. Ali is an excellent dive master and the whole set up is very well run.

I have been on many diving trips with desert sea divers and all have been excellent. Ziad who works in the shop in the dive village is very polite and answers emails very promptly. DM Ali is an excellent guide and looks after you if it has been a while since you have dived. Food on board is fantastic and you never go hungry. A fantastic day out and I look forward to diving with desert sea divers very soon.

This seems to be one of the most well known scuba diving centres in Jeddah. It is located about in Obhur, North of Jeddah. Be careful though when you go for the first time to dive: two shops exist, one at the FAL resort and one in "Dive Village". Boats are leaving from the former one.

Boat trips are organised on one of the three (comfortable) boats of the centre and last one day (with some time on the sea to go to the sites). Three dives are organised and food (good) and drinks are provided.

The club's material is in good condition so no problem to rent. Only issues are the slowness of the boats.

All together a great experience notably thanks to the great crew (and the dolphins we could see on our way to the sites)!

It’s a bit nervous when diving in the Arabian sea for the first time but everything turned out so fine. Just stay with the group and follow all the instructions. They say it is a connecting point of the hot and cold sea water so there are a lot of fish… and sharks too. But we didn’t see any shark actually.
