After our last trip in May 2013, we returned to Coraya Bay this March. The Diving Center hasn't changed, and it's not a problem: we knew what to expect. The weekly dive plan is fixed in advance and various enough to choose the trips you like. There are more spots to visit every day, and a lot of divers sign in for every trip. As there are five hotels in the bay, there are a lot of divers as well. Therefore a lot of dive instructors and dive guides needed to assist you day by day. This is not about friedship or symphaty, it's about making business. They are smiling at you, but I'm not sure they know who you are.
As we have more than 25 logged dives, we could dive without a guide - not only at the house reef (Marsa Umm Gerifat), but also on outside reefs. I think it's better to dive together with your buddy and not to be tied to the guide and be in hurry all the time.
