Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Ahmed and his team were lovely fun and safe to dive with. Dives are less than 10m and around 30min or so.
    Dives: Cleopatras Palace / lighthouse
    Unfortunately the government has taken out the sphinx and other statues so there is only huge columns and bases left to see there. It was pretty cool if you enjoy that but you need imagination! Otherwise its all covered in barnacles and not much fish.

    Pharos Island
    Less interesting just rocks and quite a bit of finishing lines. Didn’t see much and the visibility was around 1m.

    Two dives in half day but a few words of advice:
    1 bring some food for between dives you’ll be out on the boat most of the day.
    2 Bring your passport!! I forgot and being Egypt there are a lot of government permissions to go through. Ahmed kindly took me back to my hotel to grab it.
    3 be prepared to go with the flow it’s Egypt things take a while just relax and enjoy the day

    FYI: They are the only recreational scuba company left in Alexandria as the government closed the others due to unsafe practices.

    In 2yrs once Frank Goddios team finish They hope to offer dives to Heraclion site which is quite exciting hopefully the government will keep some of the finds in the sea.

    Nothing to compare the beautiful natural locations of Sharm ElSheikh where is an extremely quiet transparent water

    The variety’s of corals are not comparable to any other coral reef worldwide , also the verity of fishes is amazing

    Please insure that you have at least two - three

    days visit due to different locations

    This was by far the worst diving experience of my life. We were asked to be at the shop by 10 and were to have completed our dives by 1:30 at the latest. It took until 1 pm to get our army permits (despite giving copies of our passports before the day and then demanding our original passports now!).

    We didn’t get in the water until after 1 pm, the equipment was not safe and the visibility was less than a metre! When the dive finished after 25 metres we complained and wanted our money back - this was by now 3pm! The boat was unsafe and there was no way two dives of around 40 minutes would be completed!

    When we complained and wanted our money back our passports had mysteriously gone missing! The worst diving experience of my life and it cost 130 euros. You can live like a king diving for that sort of money and these guys clearly are abusing the fact they are the only game in town, clearly there is some bribes doing on and corruption.

    Be warned - whether they call themselves Alexandria Dive or Ahmed diving do not trust them with your money.
