Great way to complete both a diving course, whilst enjoying quality diving and socialising with like minded people. The crew at EDC are top notch, enthusiastic and good company too.

We learned to dive with Emirates Divers Centre in Le Meridien Abu Dhabi. We completed the online learning course and did our training in the swimming pool. The 4 dives were completed off the beach from the hotel. It should be noted that the dive site itself is not great (not much to see), but we just wanted to get... More

Emirates Dive Center was a great place to get certified in open water diving strictly due to the superb instruction given by Alaa. He was extremely helpful at getting me to understand bouyancy control, as well as all the other required techniques to become certified. The open water in which you dive is terrible...I'm not gonna lie. You'll be lucky... More

My wife and I decided to go with Emirates Diving Centre for our Padi open water certification. While the sea here is not the best due to very low visibility the teaching was fantastic. They always made sure we understood what was happening and the reasons for doing things etc. I would absolutely recommend this dive school and look forward... More

I absolutely loved our first open water dive. The whole experience was so informative, that taught us useful information. I enjoyed every single moment. Ahmed was very patient with us since the beginning and made sure we are confident enough before our first dive. He explains with details without being in a rush and is very professional and fun to...

My friends and I had an amazing experience with Emirates Divers Centre! Ahmed and his colleagues are all very professional, kind and caring. We did the course over two weekends. One day we had theory and practical knowledge. Ahmed was an exceptional teacher, able to explain to us anything that we weren't clear on. Our second day was practicing skills... More
