El Gouna scores highly on TripAdvisor (as do all Emperor's centres), so here we would like to share a happy guest's feedback. It's good to hear it straight from those who experience it...

Dolphin and diver, El Gouna
(Emperor stock photography)
Just dived with Emperor again, for about the sixth time over the past few years ... On arrival, check in and registration was hassle free and I dived for 4 days. Highlight was Dolphin House at Shaab el Erg, where I was alone with my buddy in the gotta and a pod of 14 dolphins came right up to us and circled us a few times. A mother then brought her calf over for a close look at us, accompanied by a big bruiser of a male (he did NOT look cute). fantastic.
The boats are big and comfortable, the hire gear is good and the briefings and safety are excellent. Thanks to Bassem, Ahmed, Terry and the guys. You can leave you kit overnight safely. The lunches, prepared by the boat crew are fabulous. I took my (non diving) parents on the boats one day and my dad said it was as good as you get in the restaurants! The crew are very helpful and friendly and clearly know what they are doing.
I saw several snorkelers and non-divers on the boat and they were not treated like second class citizens, and there were some people doing courses etc. who looked like they were really enjoying it. Everyone had a One on One instructor this week.
