The college offers the equipment and expertise for most of your dive needs, they offer a variety of PADI courses and know Sharm dive sites very well.

Greetings from Canada (Happy Thanksgiving) Looking at booking one day of diving at Red Sea Diving College. Unfortunately, their morning boats depart well before our cruise vessel arrives at Sharm El Sheikh port. They have kindly offered us shore diving in the afternoon and then a night shore dive. We are both experienced divers, having dove for years and in many places around the world, so a simple sandy beach dive is NOT what we are looking for. Do any of the past visitors and TA reviewers have experiences to share about Red Sea Diving College shore dives? Thank you RetiredAndTravelling

Shore diving from the RSDC is good! No hassle very short walk to the water. The reef is good with plenty of life. 👌✌️️
