Attraction details
Owner description: Diving Ocean is located in Prima Life, one of the best 5 star resort of the area. We offer the possibility to dive the amazing house reef from shore or by speed boat, ideal choice for divers with accompanying family as well as, of course, the classic half day and full day boat trip during which, thanks to the strategic position of the bay, you will visit the most beautiful diving sites of Hurghada and Safaga area.

First of all I want to stress that virtually everybody in this diving center is very kind, especially to newbies like I was. They were always ready to step in and help you with gearing up and gear assembly whenever needed and I am very sorry I don't know the names of all the guys so I could really thank them properly

The housereef is a "piece of cake" diving (no currents, no waves, beach entrance, many colorful corals and fish, warm water)

One thing for newbies and instructors as well: Definitely and without any shadow of a doubt always explain to each other what you are going to do underwater and if you are going to pretend to do it like Controlled Emergency Swimming Ascend (CESA) lets define the distance you pretend to swim like two fin kickstrokes or something like this because I almost surfaced partly because of my stupidity of course

Special thanks to Madi who has been my instructor during Oper Water course and very kind all the way through (the "Hakuna Matata" guy) and also didn't let me die which I always appreciate ;-D

Hope to see you soon guys!

My wife and I were staying at the Makadi Bay Spa hotel for a weeks mid sun and snorkelling. I am a BSAC diver but hadn't dived for many years. We chanced upon Diving Ocean and both my wife and I were very impressed by their professionalism, so although she had never dived before we took the Easy Diver together. She loved it! Our dive instructor Sammi was superb, shepherding my wife with great care. We dived off the beach, saw lots of fish, a the highlight a close encounter with a large Moray eel. A wonderful experience for us both.

I used to be a regular here.
But for the last two years I haven't been due to some issues that had created within the staff at this diving center ..But I decided to give it another go....
I got there and I was amazed by the change that the new manager (Monica Peroni) As brought to this fantastic diving center..On the arrival she was not there and her staff welcomed me and my brother as two old friend they was very professional and the attention to detail was great so I felt at home ones again .
One I got all my diving equipment ready the guy on the beach where very attentive make sure I had everything before entering the water .Ones in the water I found the same paradise that I left two years ago ....So a massive thank you to everyone there and long may continue..
I feel so comfortable with you guys that as you know I ask Monica if I could leave my equipment in their safe for next time she was more than happy for me to do that ...So any way ones again I found my casa dolce casa ...10 out of 10 for me
THANK YOU AND SEE YOU VERY SOON

Nice diving school which provides proffesional care.. We got our advance diving with Makadi Diving. Renthal equipentment might need some extra attention. It took us 4 different regulators to get sorted and one bcd broke down @ 30m down.. Nothing major

Thank Endendijk
