What Our Customers Say
We had the most amazing dives with Deep South Divers. They're very professional and easy going. During the 8 dives we did, we've met awesome people with similar drive and interests. Next month we're going back to do our Advanced course. They do everything to make you feel safe and let you experience the beauty of the Red Sea.
Awesome dive center! Organising pick up and transfer back! Everyone super engaged! Dive equipment in good condition! Divemasters are great! Would recommend 10/10! :)
The Best Diving Center ever. I recommend this place to everyone who wants to feel safe while diving and who wants to develop their skills. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
This is the best dive school I have dived with and the crew is fantastic! so friendly helpful and professional. Thank you guys for this unforgettable week! We will come back for sure!
My Girlfriend and I did the Open Water Diver at this awesome diving school. We enjoyed every single day at this beautiful place. Mahmoud is such a nice guy and a perfect teacher. He was always very patient with us!Thank you for this wonderful experience!
Great dive centre, with lots of different dive sites accessible from shore or boat. Friendly staff, who try hard to accommodate your wishes.Located right on the beach, near a great restaurant and cafe, plus over the road (5 minutes walk) is the Deep South Eco Lodge, which makes a perfect match - of affordable, good accommodation (with amazing meals!), diving and eating and relaxation, as well as a easily accessible reef nearby to snorkel on when not diving.It is quite a way (15 minutes drive) from Marsa Alam town centre so remote, but this is its beauty and makes for a very chilled base. Some people do travel (& get collected) from their other hotels etc if not staying over the road at the EcoLodge. Enjoy!
