Absolute professionals! I was with my girlfriend who had fear of diving but there the team helped go over it and finally she went down to 5 or 6 meters. I was able to step on the ground at 10 meters. Cameras, clean water and the wonderful team who did everything so that we could enjoy our diving tour! Lunch was good. Slices of oranges were randomly and unexpectedly served which was a pretty much refreshing bite. The team was really friendly, helpful, giving everything they were able to give so that at the end of the day we felt like - Okay, next time we visit Egypt, it's you guys we will call to dive again.

This was an amazing time. Everything was great and the staff was very helpful, professional and entertaining. It was my first time diving so there was a little apprehensive but it quickly passed once I got into the water with my instructor. I especially liked Muhammad ("Hello, it's so good to meet me.") Ha! So much fun and will definitely be going back very soon. Driver was on time, transportation excellent, food was great, value for money exceptional. My highest recommendation.

THE BEST BOAT TRIP YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE. Special thanks to Jacky and Abu Jabal for giving us the VIP treatment and diving instructor Mohammad for the amazing first time scuba intro dive. LOVED IT!

Sehr schöne Quadtour durch die Wüste und am Meer lang. Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis super. Das Tempo war gut, so dass man ordentlich Gas geben konnte. Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.

That was a perfect day to snorkeling with 2 stops. It was beautiful. Oringe bay is also nice. The staff was super, friendly and helpful. We really liked this excursion.
