I regularly dive with DSD. They are highly professional, safety-conscientious and friendly. You have a dive master on the board, most of the time very experienced. They know the dive sites very well and select the sites taking in consideration the level of dives, their preferences and the weather. Breakfast and lunch are offered on the boat, but that can...

I have done many different boat trips with desert sea divers each trip has been excellent. All the staff work hard to make sure that you enjoy your day. Speak with the crew and tell them what sort of a trip that you would like, they will try to take you to a site that you will enjoy it doesn't... More

Arrived at Desert Sea Divers at 0730 unsure of what to expect. I had signed up for the snorkelling but there appeared to be alot of professional divers on the boat so I initally felt that I was on the wrong boat. However, I was quickly put at ease by the friendly nature of the Dive Master (ADC I think?)... More

Ziyad was super. He even arranged a driver to come and collect me from the Park Hyatt and take me back afterwards. Everything was very professional. Taj, the driver, arrived spot on time. Excellent driving. When we arrived, registration and payment was well organised and quick. We were provided with cold drinks (soft and water) throughout as well as tuna... More

We arrived the day before our trip and showed up at the dive shop to pick up our Saudi dive permits so we could do a shore dive before the... More

As a new comer to the area his knowledge of local conditions was very helpful. Subsequently I have done a boat dive with the company and have... More

My experience was as two time diver seeking to complete open water certification. We were a group of five, and our instructor completed our temporary PADI certifications at the Desert Sea. It's a bit off the road so pass slowly. The staff was supportive and helped us, I even got a free magazine for spending 50 SAR. That said, the... More
