What Our Customers Say
I’ve been diving with Deep South Divers in April 2023 and had a great time with them in Marsa Alam. From the first contact (booking/organisation of the trip) to the diving, everything went smoothly and was well organised. Regarding Deep South Divers: they have a great team of young professional dive instructors and masters and made the right priorities (1. Safety, 2. Fun). Equipment was in good condition and the location in Tondoba is perfect to dive from the shore. Regarding diving Red Sea: there are several beautiful and diverse dive spots around Marsa Alam and as it’s yet not too overcrowded, the reefs are all in great condition (as far as I can judge). I got to see several rays, turtles, octopus, eels, etc. Apparently spring isn’t the best season to see sharks, thus I’ll go back and for sure will dive again with Deep South Divers.
We spent two days with Deep South Divers. Everyone we interacted with was extremely knowledgeable and good at their job. They ran things on time and as agreed upon. Communication was quick, and we had no problems whatsoever. I highly recommend, and I would absolutely go back.
Best dive centre I've ever! The whole team were amazing and the dives all felt so personal. I've never felt so safe and confident diving, so thank you for such a life changing experience.
My wife and I dove here for a good week. We are both experienced divers. All the staff were very courteous, helpful and accommodating for the dives we wanted to do. They were professional and they loved their job, and what they were doing. A big shout out to the DM's Ramadan and the Mohammed's, so great to dive with you and to get to know you as friends. The house reef is excellent, with a number of dive sites right off shore and even more within a quick zodiac ride. The equipment is of good quality, and the pick up and drop off to our place of stay was well timed with no hassles. The atmosphere at the dive center is very relaxed, with free water, coffee or tea for the asking. We look forward to be able to come back to Marsa Alam and dive with Deep South Diver in the future.
First class team at Deep South Divers. Signed up for three days of dives and every dive site was impressive. Modi also went the extra mile to ensure that we got to see a sea cow during our trip! Responsive and patient with questions, thorough trip organisation (including transfers and bonus falafel sandwiches), and professional service. Equipment was maintained well too. Will definitely dive with them again. Thanks for the hospitality and sharing with me the beauty of Marsa Alam and the Red Sea. Shukran awi!
This diving center is simple but that’s what makes it a little paradise along the beach! Muhammad, Ahmed and Monica will take you diving to amazing places to see anything Marsa Alam can provide, you MUST go to Dolphin house and check the cave dive, mesmerising. They will take you out with a great smile and most importantly following all the safety! Will come back 1000%!!
