On an area of 360m² we are offering everything diver, skin diver and those going to be need to have a perfect holiday. Due to over 20 years of experience in the professional management of a dive centre we guarantee our guests wonderful dives in the Red Sea. High standards and professionalism are for us the basics to feel comfortable. The dive centre is equipped with two multimedia classrooms, two big guest equipment rooms, workshop, filling station (Nitrox panel available), wheelchair accessible guest toilettes and showers and a very big rinsing area. Ilios DC is directly at the beach with our own marina in front, which allows diving and boat trips in a most comfortable way. Two private diving yachts (Al Dau 1+2) assure perfect comfort, delicious food and everything to feel relaxed on board. Certainly the whole centre is done border free, as we are already since 1992 specialized in teaching diving to people with disability. Ilios Dive Club is offering the full program; divers and non divers need to spend relaxing holidays, such as intro dives, daily diving and snorkelling tours to the beautiful dive spots of the Red Sea. Our PADI dive school offers courses from beginner up to professional. For sure we offer live aboard safaris, diving packages and special offers for groups as well. Jump into the adventure - get diving with Ilios Dive Club!

If you are new to diving and want a responsible, organized, and professional center this is the place. They know what they are doing and they are doing it in the most friendly and caring way. Second time we do diving there and everything is excellent. Great boats, great instructors and friendly management.

I have just returned from Hurghada and for the second time i used Ilios dive club and for the second time it was absolutely excellent !0n arrival we were greeted as old friends and with HUGE smiles by Tarek ( guide/instructor ) then by Monica and Franzi at reception. Also working at Ilios who we had not met before were Lucy and Andreas ( guides/instuctors ).
The diving was varied and excellent and requests for certain sites were always accomodated if possible weather permitting . Briefings were almost all in english even though most of the time i was the only natural english speaker on the boat but Lucy's ( Austrian ) Andreas ( German ) and Tarek ( Egyptian ) english was all brilliant , so no problem there . When the briefs were done in german i always had a private translation from someone !
PLEASE dont let the fact that you might be the only Engish person on the boat put you off using Ilios , they in my opinion the most efficient and friendly dive centre i have ever used !

As for the boat crews , both are very good and the food they both serve is absolutely first class !
I will definately be using Ilios again and would certainly encourage others who dive in Hurghada to use them too !!!!!!

I JUST CANT WAIT TO GET THERE AGAIN NEXT YEAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

calm patient PADI instructors and a free test snorkel first. The trip out to the reef and the dinghy ride at speed were amazing.
