Diving in Nabq Bay?

Diving in Nabq Bay?

Hi all, apologise if this info is on the site already but I can't seem to find it.

My g/f and I will be staying at the Royal Albatros Moderna in Nabq Bay from 14-28 June (and we can't wait!)

Neither of us have dived before and would like to do the PADI Open Water course but it looks like there are no dive sites based out of Nabq with the closest being in Naama Bay.

Am I right in this or are there some in Nabq which would do the pool based training there then provide the travel for the o/w?

Sorry if these are stupid questions, was just thinking it would be cheaper to book before we get out there.

How did it go then?

I will be staying at this hotel as well and want to do the Open Water course. Is there anyone you could recomend?

Many thanks

It went great thanks - the hotel is top as far as we're concerned, room was pretty bit, good view and the food was quality and constant...I still miss those fresh croissants every morning!

With the diving we went through Camel Dive (http://www.cameldive.com/) as they have at the Laguna Vista hotel which is about a twenty minute walk from Moderna - not that I'd recommend walking in August! No need to though as they pick up every morning and either go to the dive school for the pool stuff or to Sharks bay for the open water dives.

I couldn't recommend them highly enough, we did our course with Davey cant recall his surname but he was spot on, we were lucky enough to just have 2 on 1 training which was thorough but relaxed.

We actually did the open water and then a day at Ras Mohammed which qualified us as adventure divers as well - i'd definitely recommend Ras Mohammed as well - amazing diving!

Worth booking before going though as they have offers on and we paid 100EUROS less than we would have done.

If you want any more details just post here and I'll get back to you.
