“The best around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

There is nothing about this dive company to be faulted. The German owners, Matt and Regina are clearly at the top of their profession This also extends to the training of their staff and the care of their customers. As a frequent traveller to Egypt, there is nowhere I feel more safe diving than at Dive Point.

“Excellant would recomend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

We would highly recommend them. the rental equipment was very good, the boat and level of teaching were also to a high standard. the guides spoke a number of languages. the boat crew were helpful and friendly. the lunch on the boat was good. they also had good contacts to a lot of the main scuba dealers so could get equipment and servicing of kit easily. would happily dive with them again. We had two main guides, Vladimir and Szilard, both were excellent, with good knowledge of the dive sites and were generally helpful.

We did the 5 day, 10 dive package and a couple of house reef dives and enjoyed them all.

“Very professional, very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

We had a 2 week family holiday in Hurghada and stayed at the hotel adjoining Dive Point. I'd been in touch with them via email before the holiday and was comfortable that they could help us (my daughter was 10 and had JUST finished her PADI JOW).

On arrival we went to see them and were welcomed and shown around the whole facility Silard (sp?). He went into great detail and that was enough to convince me we'd made the right choice.

We dived the house reef to acclimatise and that was surprisingly good for a shore dive. We did it again later and there was even more to see. Isobel was thrilled to see 7 large puffers, lionfish and a spotted stingray.

The boat dives were really well run and the boat crew were friendly and helpful. The dive sites were tremendous as they are in Hurghada but the choice of dives was always well planned on the day.

The whole team really made us feel welcome and they went out of their way to make sure that Isobel was well looked after and helped her confidence.

Bonuses of free wifi and free Nitrox make this absolutely one of the top dive centres I've used in the Red Sea (6 visits).

“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

I had never been diving before and whilst on holiday in Egypt I visited Dive Point! All the staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Within minutes of enquiring I was in the shallow water trying some regulators as soon as we were back in the dive centre I was signing up for the PADI open water :-) after reading the open water manual also provided by Dive point I was watching the padi DVDs and then heading out for the first of my open water dives. If you are looking for a professional dive centre to go diving please visit Dive Point Hurghada. They will be able to help you from a beginner through to professional. Thanks Pete and all the other staff for such a memorable time! Since returning to the UK I have completed a dry suit course and I am booked in for the advanced open water!! Cheers Jon
