“Cheap, but therefore lacks some quality”

Deep Divers Hurghada
Reviewed April 16, 2014

If you have a nice dive with Deep Divers depends mostly on your guide/DM in charge of that day. The first two days we were disappointed with the lack of fish and colour at the chosen dive sites: that was not how we remembered the Red Sea (we've dived it 6 times over the past few years)!

After a good talk with one of the guides, he told the captain the next day to take us to some sites a little further away, and they were a lot better. More fish, more coral, more colours and better visibility. That's something I don't really understand: if you don't speak up, they'll take you to the same dive sites for the whole week, although there are over 25 different sites nearby. I think they just choose the ones closest to the resort, so it doesn't cost too much time and money. Most of the staff on board just doesn't seem to care a lot about the divers.

We ordered 32% nitrox and got different mixes every day, varying from 28-31% (mostly 29-30%), and one day they forgot to bring enough nitrox tanks on board.

We also dived a lot with just the two of us, without a guide (we are experienced divers). That was okay for us, but it was because there was only one guide with a group of very different levels of experience. I think if that's the case than you should send an extra guide instead of sending people by themselves. The main reason for us to want to dive with a guide is because they see more marine life, and you don't have to worry about navigating back to the boat (hey, we're on holiday ;-).

In the end we were quite surprised that we had to pay for the tea and coffee we had on board - at what other dive center is that not included in the price of the dive?!

All and all we had some good dives and we enjoyed it, but wouldn't recommend it if you are not very experienced or if you want any personal attention.
