This was my 3rd time diving but it was hands down the best experience i have ever had- both under and over the water. The crew is one of the best around and they do know how to make the entire experience so memorable. Lunch, boat, amenities everything is as good as it can possibly get. You cant go wrong with them.

The boat was very clean and comfortable, great deck above for sunbathing and to observe the views.
Mustafa, Akram and team were all so welcoming and fun. They made us feel very comfortable and in safe hands. They looked after us on our dive and gave us an unbelievable experience. Will definitely come back to Blue Paradise if we come back to Egypt.

We had a lovely day out at sea on a very nice boat with fantastic crew. Special mention to Mustafa and Joann who have really gone the extra mile to support us in our first ever dive in the sea waters. Lunch was really good and all equipment looked very well taken care for.

I booked this based on excellent reviews for this company. Generally with good reviews on Tripadvisor yopu can't go wrong. I booked for family of 4, 2 adults 2 kids 12, 16. My wife is not a good swimmer and I informed this to the company before hand and someone called Sylvie, confirmed that she will be taken care of and there is nothing to worry.
On the boat staff seem cheerful and good, use of equipment and everything was explained properly by the instructor Mustaffa on the boat.

my wife mentioned that she wanted to dive last, just in case she doesn't dive , it would not affect the kids moral but Mustaffa asked her to go second after me, we thought he knows better and agreed to that order.

Once Mustaff jumped in the water everything went downhill, he was in rush to finish the dive asap without giving us time to familiarise.

I managed to dive as I have done couple of dives but not open water qualified in England.

My wife jumped second and she was scared initially but i think she put on wet suit and jumped that took some courage but afterwards instead of encouraging her and trying to calm her, he just shouted calm down ! calm down, he mentioned he himself needed to calm down before he could take her down. Instructor is supposed to be patient and encouraging instead his aggresive behaviour completly put off my wife from diving .
Same with my elder son he managed to dive but Mustaffa got annoyed that he was not able to breath properly with regulator and again he shouted and made a joke about him to which all the staff on boat laughed.

My younger son was similarly put off as instructor did not give him enough time to be familier with water.
Out of 4 tickets only me and my elder son were able to dive. As I am doing open water course in England I could see how bad as instructor he has been.

I would suggest travellers to not pick any company until you get here and try diving centre of hotel if possible, simply because they give a lesson in their swimming pool before directly taking you to the sea. It is important to pick right company, not only you will loose money but if you are doing this for someone new like kids they will be completly put off .

Only positive was the photographer on boat was really good and also the other instructor on second dive.

Dear sir, I was shocked and truly disappointed to read your review. My wife and me have put 18 years hard work into our divingcenter to build it like it is. I was honestly not functioning today and wanted to meet my teammembers as early as possible to discuss your review. I sincerely apologize for Mustafa his unprofessional behaviour. This is uncharacteristic for the level of our service and i can assure you this is not how we wish for any of our guests to be treated. Mustafa also sincerely apologizes and admitted his mistake. He obviously had an off day, which is ofcourse not an excuse. The first diving experience is so important. In many diving centers in the Red Sea "dive professionals" are taking 2 guest at a time. We always wanted to give the personal and safer experience. After all, in that first experience, you can make a new diver or, make that he or she will never dive again. I have shared your feedback with all concerned teammembers to ensure your experience is not repeated. I do hope you will give us another opportunity with a return visit. In that case i will personally make the trydive with your wife and kids. Best regards, Bart Manager Blue Paradise

I was so excited to go scuba diving in the Red Sea prior to my trip to Egypt. We arrived on the boat, were greeted by the staff and had to complete the medical paperwork. After setting out to sea, we were given a brief induction to the equipment. We were shown how to clear our goggles of water in the sea and how to unblock your ears as you descend into the sea. We did this by putting goggles on and demonstrating on the boat how to do it. When it's your turn to go scuba diving (which is 121 so you have your own personal instructor), you're loaded up with equipment and told to take a big step off the boat into the water. This is where it went downhill for me! My scuba instructor Akram, didn't give me an adequate amount of time to allow me to acclimatise to the water, breathing through my mouth using the oxygen tank and clearing the water from my goggles. There's so much to remember and never having done it before I was slightly panicked. I informed him of this but we continued to descend down into the sea. I didn't get that far down when I told him that I wanted to come back up. You have to relax and take long deep breaths. I was becoming anxious so my breath was short and shallow. When we got to the surface he was visibly agitated which didn't help to subside my anxiety. I thought I'd "give it another go" as I wanted to explore the Red Sea but again I didn't feel comfortable. We went back to the surface and he was growing more and more impatient. He told me that I had to trust him which I replied I didn't and he was contributing to my anxiety. I said I wanted to go back to the boat. He replied that we'd been in the water for 20 minutes and we're holding up the excursion so that would be a good idea. I was not made to feel comfortable when I went back on the boat, no one asked if I was alright and I spent the rest of the excursion on the top of the boat sleeping in the sun. It's a real shame that they forget that not everyone is experienced like them and being instructors they should have more patience and put people at ease.

We are a young couple who have been diving once before. The boat was very clean and staff so friendly and helpful. The diving instructors explained every detail to us before we left the boat and we had one diving instructor per person. We had a little wait between couples going in but this gave us time to snorkle for which all the gear was provided. We paid for the first dive before we left with our tui rep £44pp and had the option of a second dive on the day which we took full advantage of for an extra £21pp. There are some extras to pay such as the transfer and tax but this was fully explained before we left so no unexpected extras. We would definatly rate this excursion as 5 star and say a massive thankyou to the whole team.

I highly recommend Blue paradise for everyone! We booked by email, they responsed to all questions that we had and everything was arranged easily. We paid 59EUR pp for the trip (transfer from/to hotel, snorkelling and one dive included) and additional 25EUR pp for second dive.
The lunch on board was so so (5 EUR pp), not bad, but if you are picky better prepare some sandwiches by yourself in advance. Anyway the food is not the important thing here.
Back to the topik - Diving was unforgettable. Our diving instructor Triana was very nice, professional and made us feel safe and secure all the time. She explained us in details all we needed to know about the diving, showed us how to use the equipment and was really calm and patient with us. Thanks to her we had amazing time underwater, although we never dived before (never tried snorkelling either). We saw so many different fishes and corals. I never thought that was possible for total amateurs like us. Special thanks to Triana!
Also the whole crew/staff was very nice and helpful.

We visited Egypt in March 19. We booked an introduction scuba dive through the rep at our hotel. Wanted to try scuba diving for many years and the best place to try this was in the red sea. Myself and my husband both did the dive and also did a second dive. The guys on the boat were amazing and explained everything and you felt at ease. The dive itself was awesome. The instructors were brilliant even when I had a wobble in the second dive. Wont let that put me off as when back on the boat the instructor took the time to speak to me and reassured me that lots of people have wobbles. We will be back probably to do the PADI. The lunch on the boat was excellent and would recommend it.
