Diver's Lodge

Diver's Lodge is situated on the premises of the Intercontinental Resort, just south of Hurghada town. The dive center offers both recreational & technical diving courses at competitive prices and also has a limited stock of Dive Rite equipment for sale. Having enrolled for more than one course, and it being low season, I get 20% discount on the listed course prices and 10% on the gear.

Wessam El Sebai, TDI Instructor Trainer, is the very sympathetic & charismatic manager of the dive center. The crew is friendly enough, but without him the dive center wouldn't be worth mentioning.

One night at the Intercontinental Resort, including buffet breakfast & dinner, costs 32 USD/person, based on double occupancy. The rooms are very comfortable with full amenities, but rather expensive compared to 12 USD for a single room, including basic breakfast, at the Andreas Hotel in town, only a 10' minibus ride away from the dive center.
