What Our Customers Say
We had two great days of diving with Deep South ; nice and prepared guides (Ramadan was the best one!), top position for beautiful reefs and for dolphin house. Diving center perfect for chilling after diving.
Thanks to the Deep South Divers team for an incredible experience! The dive spots were an explosion of life and colours, we can't stop watching our gopro footage. Many thanks to Moody for giving us a wonderful customer experience from Day 1, including making us taste Egyptian pizza and helping my husband find an Egyptian football jersey throughout Marsa Alam :D
We have loved our experience at Deep South divers. We were sleeping at Deep south Eco lodge located about 100m from the dive center (on google you see the Marsa Alam office, but in reality the center is located a bit south of the city in a little paradise).I had chosen to dive with Deep South before arriving in Egypt, and I chose the center because of good review and because of a great communication with the center. Before arriving I had already the prices and the best diving spot booked for us.You should know that Marsa Alam and the surroundings are a diver’s paradise. We’ve discovered that there were hundred of amazing dive spots in the area.Moudi, co-owner and dive master accompanied us through all of our dives. He’s a passionate diver and he’s very dedicated to the center and to his clients. He even organised a private trip to elphinstone, which I really wanted to visit.If you have dollars or euro, you should definetly travel with them in egypt and prepare the money to pay cash. This is pretty much for all Egypt!You should also know that Deep South offers pick up from your hotel if you are not staying at the Eco Lodge located nearby.We will definetly be back!
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.
Earning my SSI Junior Open Water Diver certification at Deep South Divers in Marsa Alam was an exhilarating experience. Under Moodi's expert guidance, we assembled our gear and embarked on memorable dives, discovering the underwater world. The diverse team added to the adventure. The beach-to-beach dives and the thrilling boat dive showcased the stunning marine life. Despite the extra day for my parents, the overall experience was enriching, and the Deep South Divers team made it unforgettable.
Me and my sisters did the open water diving course. The course took 3 days with each 2 dives, we did the theoretical part online with an app. We managed to finish all the exercises in the first 2 days and were able to use the 3rd day to mostly just enjoy the sea turtles and coral reefs. The teachers were all really nice. The diving school is located in a bay south of Marsa Alam, a very quiet spot, with a few options for accommodation. The diving conditions are incredibly good, which makes diving very rewarding from the very beginning. It's also nice to have the bay more or less to yourself and not be surrounded my lots of other boats and divers.
