Overview

Desert Rose PADI Dive Centre, Stella di Mare Hotel and other locations. There are a lot of dive centres in Sharm and the surrounding area, so who do you choose? Can’t claim to have tried them all, but these folks are PADI certified, demonstrated their competence, and have plenty of hire kit available. They are also friendly and demonstrated huge patience, borne through each of them having thousands of hours of experience.
