Excellent service. Can arrainge airport transfers to/from hotel. Training
pool on site. Set up for handicapped divers. Wi-fi at hotel.  After check
out dive one is placed into one of  three separate groups according to
ability.  Nitrox is free if dives are pre-booked. Many dives were drift
dives. Wrecks abound.  Sharm el Sheik is an international airport. Dive
guides helpful with tips how to navigate Cairo International airport where
to get free wi-fi
