She was extremely knowledgeable, clear, calm and great fun. She took us on a night dive plus to the Thistlegorm wreck; where we were the... More

Had a wonderful time revisiting the beautiful dive sites in sharm el-sheikh! Started with a day of shore diving at the Sensatori house reef and two days of diving aboard Seagull. Great dives, lovely food and excellent comedy courtesy of Jilly, Dan and Iain :) Can't wait to book my next trip - thanks guys! X

Another year with Ocean College, not sure if its been five or six years now. Lots of friendly faces that we have seen from the first time, although a few have left due to the economic climate. Booked a ten day package on line as its the cheapest way to do it and had the usual excellent email correspondence with... More

It's been a year since we have been back to them but they are great as always. Always confirm by e mail the pick up time and always there ready. We have Jilly who is always a great dive guide.

Having visited Hurghada in March we really wanted to get back to Sharm for some diving. I initially struggled to find flights without a silly 13 hour lay over in Instanbul, but Dan from Ocean College came to the rescue and flights were booked from Birmingham to Istanbul and then onto Sharm with Turkish Airlines.
