Comments 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
