Scuba Diving Centre Red Sea

Ocean College has three first-class scuba diving centres in the Red Sea. You’ll find them all in the lively resort of Sharm El Sheikh, on the tip of the Sinai Peninsula and each one has direct access to the sea. The first is our five-star PADI IDC Centre at Sensatori Sharm El Sheikh resort. You’ll find the second, our PADI Gold Palm Resort, at the Hilton Sharm Waterfalls Resort. And last but by no means least is our PADI Gold Palm Resort – a BSAC Premier Facility and TDI Centre – at the Hilton Fayrouz Resort in Naama Bay.

If you book a course or excursion at one of our scuba diving centres in the Red Sea, you don’t have to stay at one of the hotels where we’re based. If you’re staying in one of Sharm El Sheikh’s other hotels or apartments, we’ll pick you up and drop you back for free. So you won’t have to add any extra costs on to your day. Talking of which, you really do get value for money with us. Our team of experienced dive instructors always make sure you experience the best diving the Red Sea has to offer, whether you’re diving solo, as a family or in a group.

We’ve not just got the biggest and best scuba diving centres in the Red Sea – we also go to the best locations. You can take your pick from dive sites like White Knight, Shark Bay and Tower. We tick off all the big ones, too. Places like Tiran National Park and Ras Mohammed National Park. And wrecks like the famous WWII merchant ship SS Thistlegorm, which sank in 1941, are on the menu, too.

Weather & Water Temps

The sun shines in the Red Sea 365 days a year with virtually no rain.

Depending on the time of year, the thermometer hovers between 24°C and 39°C and the water temperature is 22°C to 26°C – so diving is great year-round.
