“Good dive club”
Review of Aquasport

Reviewed 27 August 2017 via mobile

They recommend us to dive in Taba, in the Egypt side, so we went to Taba to dive with them. It's a bit messy because of the borders but it worths it. The boat, the staff and dive sites in Taba were really good. The equipment they gave us in Taba was a bit old and too much used, I recommend to take your own equipment. Our guide was really kind and helpful.

terrible service
dive master was anything but helpful and allowed my daughter to surface without a safety stop. instead of helping her, she waved her hands (as if yelling at her) to come back down.
it took 45 minutes to get checked in and 30 minutes for someone to take my money at the end of the dive
beware!

Highly recommended diving club! Good instructors, great diving spots, comfortable prices.

The only downside is the restaurant/cafe which used to be a great place to spend the time between dives, but on our last visit the service was terrible/amateur. We waited 15 minutes at the table until a waiter came by to take our order, just to let us know that many of the items in the menu are not available for order, we then waited another 30 minutes for our food and not so cold beer, and ended up paying an overpriced bill...

We were pretty excited to book AquaSport's Sinai boat dive because it was the only company that leads boat dives out of Eilat (all the other companies we researched only do shore dives). The woman who helped us book the trip was very friendly and explained how it works: You meet at the Eilat dive shop and then travel a short distance across the Israel/Egypt border to their Taba dive shop and the boat leaves from there.

However, we were surprised to learn that they drive you to the border, but then you are left alone to cross the border on foot and walk 15 min to the dive shop. This wasn't so bad, but we were pretty appalled by the dive shop's expectations on the border crossing back into Israel: They tell you that they are closing shop by the time the boat returns so you must find your own way back.

That did not sound so bad, but when we arrived at the border, the sun was blazing hot and it was packed with people who had probably been waiting for hours in the sun to clear the border. We managed to make it back into Israel before the dive shop closed but couldn't find any taxis, even using the Gett Taxi app. When we called the dive shop to see if anyone would be willing to drive the 5 minutes to pick us up (just as they'd kindly dropped us off in the morning) we received quite a rude response that they had already told us how it works, and could not help out. In truth, they hadn't set any expectations about the border and honestly, probably didn't because they knew it could be a long wait in boiling hot weather. We felt the response was inappropriate and the dive shop's way of stepping out of having any responsibility after we already paid them was irresponsible.

I wouldn't dive again with AquaSport based on how they treated customers during this dive. I am pretty sure if one of us had difficulties at the border they wouldn't step up to help.

The dive masters were friendly and helpful. The equipment was a little worn (holes in the wetsuits, very old O-rings) but otherwise, I felt very well taken care of on the boat.
