Hi,
easy and short question: What Dive Center in Marsa Alam would you recommend for day trips? We will be going End of February and would like to be able to do a day trip every day - so a bigger dive center would be better suited.
Thanks,
Thomas

It depends where you are staying as Marsa Alam is a long section of coastline. I have always used Coraya Divers and found them very good, I would guess that they are the largest in the area. Always lots of dives happening from their Coraya Bay dive shop.

We also used Coraya two years ago. We used them for both boat dives and guided shore dives. There's a couple of decent shore dives onsite at Brayka resort.

The guy running it had been a shop director in many places of the world and was there to get it up to top standards. He had added a lot of things like shaded enclosures for dive lockers and changing, new rinse tanks, new rental gear, etc. I'd have to check my logs for his name but he's probably gone. He wasn't looking for a permanent gig anywhere. He liked the role of "fixer", spending a couple gears to get things running well then looking for the next project.
