"My son age 13 and my husband took their Open Water here in 4 days (2 or 3 dives per day + 1 theory lesson per day). They really enjoyed the course and the instructor was very knowledgeable and spoke great English. All of the team were very friendly and at your disposal. Organisation was excellent. The instructors seem to love their job! Ideally located, the dive center offers a variety of dive sites. In short, perfect in every way. Thank you Ashraf and the Team at El Quseir."

Diving that sweet spot
The Red Sea is a treasure-trove, with more diving spots than you can shake a stick at. With more than 1200 species of fish, of which 10% are found nowhere else, calling the sea home you can expect a vibrant and colorful sight. In addition, coral reefs stretch a whopping 2000 km along the coastline. These reefs can form platforms, lagoons and even cylinders, which form superb diving spots. 25% of the Red Sea has a depth of less than 50m, so there is plenty of shallow waters to dive into.
Right outside the resort you can find the “house reef”, teeming with life. Fusilier, mackerel, tuna fish, scorpion fish, trigger fish, butterfly fish and eagle rays are just some of the species found here. With some luck you might even be accompanied by turtles and dolphins on your dive. Who could ask for better company?
Personalized beginners experience
If you are eager to take your first leap into the world of diving and underwater exploration, then Subex is the school for you. The managers alone have more than three decades of diving experience between them and are eager to share their love of diving. When you join the Subex Diver Training course you are treated to an individual experience, with no more than 4 students per instructor. Theory lessons are held at the diving center while all diving lessons take part in the sea. From the diving center a pier stretches 70 meters out into the Red Sea, and two staircases will take you below the surface for your first dive.
There is even a separate course for children, so the little ones can take part in the fun. If you need any help carrying your diving gear or are feeling a little nervous before the dive, then have no fear, your instructor will be happy to help you out with both. The dive center can take 80 guests and comes complete with a locker for each guest, dive shop, canopies providing protection from the sun and plenty of space for changing clothes and a debrief after the dive.
Taking it one dive further
If diving is a favorite pastime and you’ve experienced several underwater adventures before, but want to take it a dive further, then you’re at the right spot. They have a variety of advanced diver and instructor training courses available. You can either take a course allowing you to continue diving on your own, without requiring an instructor, or become a dive leader, the highest level of training available. Both courses are only for experienced divers.
"The staff at Subex are more than friendly, the operation is extremely professional in the way its run and I was more than relaxed on every dive I undertook with them. Being a Master Scuba Diver of many years who has dived conditions from sub-zero to high tropics, I think I'm qualified to give an unbiased and rational review of this centre. Would I dive with them again? - Yes, every time with Subex without question."
