My girlfriend and I chose Dive Point after being told by Thomson that they couldn't book us anything to go with our holiday (other people who booked a course from the hotel sponsored center on arrival were disappointed). I chose Dive Point after reading reviews and also because Matthias answered all of my questions promptly and accurately (even after all of the numerous emails i sent him asking stupid questions). We were picked up from Premier Le Reve, which is about as far as they go, by Khaled, every morning and taken to the dive school which is really well maintained. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like family and as part of the organisation which was really nice.
My girlfriend had had a bad dive experience when she visited Sharm so wasn't too keen on doing the course but the thought of losing me everyday to diving, for the majority of the holiday also didn't appeal, so I paid before we arrived and the centre sent us DVD's and books through the post for her to research prior to us arriving.
Vlady (our instructor) and Martin (doing his Dive Master course) were with us throughout the course and explained everything to us so everything became second knowledge by the end of our Open Water Course.
We spent 2 days in the lagoon (right next to the center) doing all of the exercises required and then spent 2 days on the boat doing open water diving. The boats are well maintained clean and the crew were awesome. They prepared food whilst we were on the first dive of the day so during the rest period we could eat and relax prior to us doing our second dive.
We enjoyed the experience so much that we even booked a 5th day to do 2 dives as qualified divers.
I can't thank the center enough for the experience and we are planning to go back next year to do our next course.

Thank Dave P

My partner and I used Dive point to complete our Padi open water qualification. Having had a bad experience dive in the past through a different company I was unsure that I would ever be able to overcome my fears.
We received our books and dvds in the post which we studied before we arrived.
Everything on the course was explained to us step by step by our instructor vlady,
All communication through Dive point was answered promptly,
we were collected from our hotel every morning and driven home at the end of the day by Khaled,
The quality of teaching standards were second to none! The course material was explained clearly and repeated as many times as I asked until it had sunk in.
they supplied great food on the boat for an extra charge.
Everywhere was clean and organised, equipment was cleaned then stored after every dive, making things run smoothly when you arrive in the morning to load onto the boat. They have two Dive boats which were kept clean and tidy and a pleasure to be aboard.
All in all it was an amazing experience which I'll never forget! I've made some great friends from Dive point and I'm looking forward to returning to them on our next holiday
Very happy customers!

My husband and I have been using Divepoint for 10 years and would not consider going out of Hurghada with anyone else. The staff are amazing, boat boys, skippers, dive guides, instructors and Regina and Matthias, all do their absolute best to make sure your dive experience is the best it can possibly be. See you in September
