PADI Open Water Course at the Camel Dive Club

I had a fantastic 4 days diving. None of our party had tried it before but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our instructor Beth was excellent. I had a bit of a scare on day 2 and nearly gave up but she coaxed me through it and I am so glad she did. I love it now and cant wait to try it again. Camel Dive club in Sharm is the best. I would thoroughly recommend it!

8 nights at the Camel Dive Club

We have just returned from 8 days in Sharm El Sheikh staying at the Camel Club, the hotel was excellent, (though it is worth upgrading to a superior room so that you have a balcony) rooms were clean and functional and staff friendly and helpful. The resort of Naama Bay is what it is, a very vibrant and busy place in the evenings, lots of places to eat and drink generally not to expensive. We dived with Camel dive centre every day and again the staff were helpful and friendly whether in the dive center on the boats or the dive guides. We did go on the speed boat diving excursion on one day which was well worth it. We will definitely be returning as soon as we can. The arrangements were as always well executed by the team at Ultimate Diving, the transfers to and from the airport to the hotel were faultless, and as with the Camel Club, we will be using Ultimate Diving to arrange our next holiday.

Very enjoyable diving trip to Camel Diving in Na’ama Bay to complete two courses (Deep and Drift specialties) as part of Master Scuba Diver application. Well organised by Ultimate Diving so no need to worry about hotel booking or transfers. Marcelina was excellent before and after the trip. Regards… Alan.
