We managed to dive for 5 days with them and all of their dive guides were excellent, the boat and equipment were all in good condition and everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. Diving itself was excellent, particularly Shark & Yolanda Reef and Shark Observatory where we had three sightings of tiger shark and also a blacktip. (The currrent was very strong!!).
Tiran was also excellent, good visibility and beautiful coral, topped off with an eagle ray on our last dive. A whaleshark was even spotted the day before by another group from Dive Africa!" Simon, Chadwell Heath
