“Great People, Great Diving....All in One Place.....Arrrgh..!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

I was taken to Egypt by my other half in January 2013, my first visit. Being a diver it was a chance to dive the red sea and find out what the fuss was all about.

As my other half had booked the hotel I thought I would contact the dive club on site to check out dive packages. I was given lots of information and really made to feel welcome, this before even getting there!!
I was knocked sideways with the level of service and the precise attention to detail whilst out diving with these guys...so much so I have just returned and completed my rescue course.

Pirates are simply a great diving outfit from the cylinder and kit crew to the head man Mr Moody. You are treated on a personal level, very accommodating, for example I had my regs serviced before I went out in the uk. On arrival I asked for a cylinder to check them in the hotel pool. On doing so I noticed air escaping from my pressure guage....this was promptly fixed for me without charge allowing me to dive with my own familiar kit.

I noticed they have a great balance of humour and instruction when teaching as I found and observed whilst undertaking my rescue course and watching new students being inducted into diving.

I have to say that the boat diving is excellent with less numbers than the crowded boats you see at the dive sites, this with extremely knowledgeable dive guides gives you that personal touch.

Since my previous visit I have noticed they have up graded their facilities improving the learning environment for students and also a new shop. All this and reasonable prices makes Pirates for me, my only dive club in Egypt.

Many thanks Moody, Zico, Seb the kit team and not forgetting Mohamed and especially Mr "Pizza Pizza" Miagi a truly knowledgeable unassuming gentleman. Many Thanks not just for teaching the skills but for passing on wisdom.

I will return ...............soon !!

Oh yes loving the new Jetty....!!

Hi Paul, it's an honor to all of us the read this review that you wrote about us in so nice details, we hope that in the next time when you come we will be done with 80 % of the renovations, we our selves can't wait to see how the place look like when it's done.

Mr Miagi is saying hello to you, he is still in a break in Cairo to regain his power after the Rescue course :).

Every one in Pirates Dive Club are saying hello to both of you and hoping you are both well and sound.
Cheers Moody

“Diving experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I've just spent the last week doing my open water PADI with Pirates Dive Club. I had an amazing time...the team are highly professional, fun, reliable, reasonably priced and with a 'depth' of experience. Highly recommend it! I will definitely be going back to do my Advanced and further dives!

“great diving experiences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We have a lot of diving in sharm el sheikh ​​and the last two years with the Pirates. In our opinion this is one of the best diving schools in sharm el sheikh. You never overcrowded boats and the instructors are always fun and have an eye for the customers.
Only for the Pirates we come to Falcon Hills Hotel.

“Amazing guys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

What can I say pirates are amazing if you are looking for someone to dive with while you stay in sharm these are your guys, easy relaxing diving, never put on a over crowed boat with loads of divers. Offering different dive sites daily, offering great value for money for the diving experience you receive, they also offer many padi courses with fantastic instructors who make it feel like a real personal experience, all I have left to say is the guys who work with the pirates dive are so friendly and chatty and always make you feel welcome.
