Diving in Qatar is very average and limited to a few sites, which is not their fault. I love diving (at 1000 plus and counting) so I'm up for any experience which takes me under... read more

This place is the worse run dive centre in the world. I paid up for course and never delivered. I'd show up at agreed times, and Hazim would always be late or did not arrive with some poor excuse. When he did arrive Id sit for hours waiting for him to answer the phone, poorly serve customers, he never ever... More

Our families experience with Qatar Divers was absolutely dismal, including an unorganized and uncertain planning stage followed by an unsafe excursion. We do not recommend Qatar Divers to anyone. I have had experiences diving throughout the Gulf and this was by far the worst company to have ever have done business with. They are quick to ask for money and... More

I contacted them to ask about a fun dive myself and a friend visiting. We both have PADI Open Water cert but needed to rent our equipment. There were not even interested. The told me unless we had 100 dives we couldn't come.

There are better choices available. They failed to deliver; always late; at least 2 stops for a breakfast pastry and coffee plus drinking water en-route to the diving site. Minimal briefing plus very little equipment available to hire for a visiting diver. The diving experience was hugely disappointing. Wont go back and shall dive Muscat or Maldives next time.

Diving in Qatar is very average and limited to a few sites, which is not their fault. I love diving (at 1000 plus and counting) so I'm up for any experience which takes me under water and poor visibility etc doesn't bother me. However, as a visitor, without my gear, I was told that I'd have to buy or supply... More

I started my diving experience in march 2013, I choosen Qatar Divers by chance looking on internet. The training was great , the instructors Hazem and Abdulatif are very friendly and you have a lot to learn from them. They are doing all the best to make you feel confortable in water and to get the necesary skills to become... More

Paid for a course and was never able to get a commitment out of them in 2012. Eventually, I connected with another instructor, bit the bullet and paid again and was certified three weeks later. Needless to say, I never heard back after repeat requests for a refund.
