Hi

Congratulations on passing your open water and you are in for a fabulous time diving the red sea .

You wont go wrong with the likes of Emperor divers , Red sea collage , Camel dive .

These are amongst the best outfits in Sharm and all i do is compare prices between them to decide on who i dive with but usually i dive with Emperor and i find them excellent and good value for money .

Regards Bassett

Hi there,

You will have an awesome time diving in Sharm!

We have dived with Sinai Dive Club based at Hilton Fayrouz and SB. They were excellent - did some great deals too if you booked in advance. We are visiting Sharm again in July and October and will dive with Sinai again as they had the right mix of professionalism and fun approach to the diving. The first time we dived with them we were relatively inexperienced and they were full of great tips and helpful advice and the groups were small which was ideal.

I can't personally vouch for Emperor and Red Sea College but a highly experienced instructor we met in the Maldives a couple of years ago had worked in Sharm for 13 years and said that there were only 3 clubs he would recommend without question, those two and Sinai Dive Club. We've had a great experience with Sinai and sounds like Bassett feels the same about Emperor and Red Sea College so don't think you can wring with one of those three!

Red sea set just behind Viva Beach..... We sat on the beach on several different vacations and watched them in and out of the sea all day..... got to know them, they seem to keep the same staff - a good sign I think !!!! - very nice, very safety conscious!!!

Hi,

We have dived with Emperor - did 3 additional specialities last time - and they are a superb outfit. Highly recommended.

We are returning in mid July and it's a toss up between Red Sea Dive College (RSDC) and Emperor for us this time, with RSDC just ahead as we want to try another 5 star DC and they are offering us a good deal for Nitrox and all the diving we want to do.

http://www.cameldive.com/

http://www.sinaidivers.com/english.htm

Like the others have said I don't think you can go wrong with RSDC, Emperor, Camel or Sinai from the reviews.

Enjoy and my advice is shop around for orice based on what sort of diving you want to do. That said they are all pretty similar.

Just to clarify, there are two dive centres with similar names in Sharm, the one I referred to is SInai Dive Club not Sinai Divers and their website is www.dive-club.com
