What People Are Saying About El Gouna
My wife and I took this trip having never dived, and vow to return many times. The crew LOVE what they do and they know every detail like the back of their hand, and within an hour of setting of had become friends with all of us. I myself was very nervous to dive but at least wanted to get in the water. After the 2nd dive I didn't want to get out! The crew are ultra supportive and patient, explain every instruction clearly and help you every step of the dive. I recommend you pay the optional extra on the day for photographs under water, ours turned out brilliantly. As an unplanned bonus, we also saw dolphins at the end of the last dive! I cannot fault this activity in any way, thank you Mourad, Abdulla, Baracuda and everyone else on board, we WILL be back!
Was a great day from start to finish and great value for money ! The only suggestion I would make would be to serve chicken for lunch as you snorkel all day with the beautiful fish ..... And then they serve you fish for lunch :-/
From start to finish - a well organised, fun, information filled trip! Tour was very friendly and went the extra mile to ensure we had a enjoyable experience. Would recommend to anyone. :)
Thank you for a wonderful cruise, enjoyed the atmosphere on board, the crew is very friendly ! Did some nice snorkeling and we saw some dolphins wich was super ! Also my elderly mother had a great time, she could sit comfortably on board and everything was taken care for, super! All the best to you all, I will definately recommend this trip !
Our trip on the Ocean Diva was one of the highlights of our holiday. The crew were friendly and helpful. Lunch was lovely and plenty of drinks offered. My daughter Laura (6) had taken her school class teddy bear to visit El Gouna and everyone helped Laura take some photos of the bear to take back to show her class mates..snorkel on, steering the catamaran, mug of rum punch haha! We were also lucky enough to see two dolphins playing. DON'T hesitate BOOK! You won't regret it, we certainly will be booking it again when we return xx
