“Great guys to teach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I have just returned from two weeks in Taba Heights and after much persuasion from my husband decided to join him on the boat trip. I am a non snorkeller and had planned to just swim around the beautiful boat. Well to my surprise Ahmed said I should at least try a mask and before I knew it I was snorkelling holding on to a ring. After a delicious lunch I was in again for another swim and Rabi (photographer) persuaded me to try flippers. Well I am 50 and have always had a fear of putting my head under water and wearing a mask. So by the afternoon I was snorkelling! These guys are great and I thoroughly recommend the boat trip to the Island. Lunch and drinks included. It was an amazing day and the Red Sea looked so different from a snorkelling point of view as opposed to looking from above. Also worthwhile buying Rabi's disks of photographs and DVD of the day,a perfect memory of a beautiful day.

Thank you for your review of our snorkelling day on the beautiful sailing boat. So pleased our team were able to coax you into the water and even teach you to snorkel. I am sure it was a pleasant surprise to join your husband to see the fish and coral. We will pass your comments on to our staff and look forward to seeing you again.

“Great watersports centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Have just returned from 2 wks at the Hyatt Regency Taba Heights and 3 snorkelling cruises from Waterworld just down the road. Excellent cruises - especially those which take in a second stop at the 'Fjord', where there's a great coral wall to snorkel along, as well as Pharaoh's Island. Thanks to the great, friendly and very professional staff and guides - the ship's crew led by Ibrahim, and guides Ehab (Bob), Ashraf, Rabie. All supremely helpful. Good luck to everyone at the centre considering the small numbers of tourists visiting Taba Heights at the moment.

Would urge all nationalities to go to Taba despite political uncertainty in Egypt - it's beautiful, safe and quiet with great hotels, food and service. Don't be afraid or nervous - there's absolutely no need for any worry and if the Foreign Office says it's safe, IT IS!

“Possibly "the best dive centre in the world"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I have dived with many different dive centres.
None of them give the all round service that Waterworld provides!
Safety is number one. Friendly professional staff. Wonderful dive sites.

I will be returning this Oct.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

I recently stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel just up the road from the Water World centre, and during my stay I completed the PADI Open Water diving course, and I also windsurfed.
All the staff at the centre were amazing, really helpful and friendly, and everything was well organised. It's laid back and relaxed, but also very professional.
My dive instructor Walid was fantastic, it's quiet an intense course and he was really patient with us as well as fun. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Also because it is situated in the marine park the diving is incredible, even in the confined water dives we saw giant turtles and loads of fish. The final day when we dived from the boat was one of the best of my life!
Because of the situation in Egypt at the moment many people are staying away, so as a customer this is great, it means you get a dive centre virtually to yourself. I would also emphasise that it's completely safe in this area of Egypt, so grab a bargain and book now if you can.
