Recently we ( 6 people) stayed at the Tropitel Hotel in Sahl Hasheesh. The Crazy Waves Dive Centre is located at the hotel which makes it very easy to go diving - both at the house-reef and on boat trips from the small harbour 10 min. drive away. Had a great time diving with Crazy Waves, and did 4 boatdives,... More

We went on two different boat trips and had some great dives, both on the local beach (hotel Tropitel) and Gifton island etc) A great thanks to the entire staff at Crazy Waves, we hope... More

Recently stayed at the tropitel in sahl haseesh, Egypt. As a keen diver I made a bee line for the dive centre was quickly made to feel welcome by any and all staff working there. We booked to do a boat trip which consisted of 3 stops, first one for diving, second on paradise island third for snorkelling. All were... More

Having done many boat trips I have considered this one to be comparable. We were told to meet at the dive centre at 0815, which we did, we left eventually for the boat at 0900hrs. The boat was nice and clean, the food was good. The snorkeling stops were the same as every other previous trips we had been on.... More

Great day out. Mixed group of about 20 with families, couples, solo, snorkelling and divers. The staff were great - friendly and entertaining. The first stop was giftun Island with some relaxing on the beach and some snorkelling from the beachside. 2nd stop was brilliant - a reef about 2-3 miles out like a submerged volcano. Great sea life and... More

Stayed at the Tropitel in Jan 16 for 11 nts. We booked Dolphin House boat trip and Giftun Island snorkelling/diving day through Crazy Waves who are based at the hotel, we found their prices (after a bit of haggling) to be cheaper than booking through the agent we travelled with. Hot and cold (non alcoholic) drinks available throughout the day... More

Really a bad experience for our first diving try. The instructor Fahmy was so arrogant but so friendly and close with the women on the boat ! Tjis man really gives a bad image of egyptian men. We will never come back again. Really expensive and really choked by the attitude of this man

Staff are great, really entertain you on the boat trips. They are not at all pushy when explaining there facilities, trips and dive packages. No long coach rides to get to boats, boats are moured at the nearby port which is a short golf buggy ride along the prom. Only negative is the price. 9th time to Eygpt, 1st to... More

I agree with most of the other reviews - the boat trip was very nice. But, it wasn't what I had payed for, and I do not appreciate being lied to. Saber, as the name of the seller was, told me that me and my family would be on a boat with at most ten people in total. We were... More
