Worked as an instructor in Dahab for the last two years and decided go tech. Firs step was deciding who to do it with, there are some really god TDI instructors in town. My choice, for many reasons, was Raymond Hermans and couldn't have been better choice. His capacity, knowledge and way of teaching took me through a road of constant improvement; day by day I felt better and more confident in the water. With challenging and usefull skills Raymond made me reach a point after my Extended Range in which my diving has become safe, fun and beautifull. Thanks a million Raymond for taking me to a better knowledge and performance of my diving.

Vivo y trabajo en Dahab desde hace un par de años, y hjace unas semanas decidí hacer my curso de TDI hasta Extended Ranch. Decidí hacerlo con Raymond Hermans y la verdad es que no pudo ir mejor. Raymond es esa clase de instructor que te lleva poco a poco a un nivel de control de las situaciones que antes, al menos yo, no imaginaba. Si piensas en tu curso o simplemente en venir a Dahab y hacer inmersiones tácnicas yo no tengo duda; Raymond es tu hombre.

For the second of several diving holidays to Egypt, I dived with the "Diving & Discovery" scuba-centre (c/o Iberotel Fanara Club and Residence) in Sharm-el-Sheikh. I specifically contacted the centre in advance to arrange to complete the TDI Decompression Procedures Course with Tom Smith. The course was comprehensively taught with a good mix of practical and theoretical sessions with plenty of time dedicated to completion of the key technical skills in open water. Tom took the time to explain all aspects of the TDI Decompression Procedures Course as well as going well beyond the scope of the course to cover various other matters relevant to decompression diving including diving physiology and psychology. In addition to which, as a recreational dive-guide, Tom was an excellent guide on a motor-boat excursion to the Thistlegorm. The hire-kit was good-quality and well maintained and the boats chartered by Diving & Discovery were all satisfactory dive boats by the standards of the region. Both Tom Smith and Diving & Discovery are recommended for technical and recreational diving for experienced and novice divers alike.

I've been trained by Chris Fanning, and it's been a real good experience. He now left Egypt, and is teaching in Tobago. He is a real professional and very safety Tech diver. Thanks a lot to him !

I had a great two weeks diving with Diving & Discovery dive centre (c/o Iberotel Fanara Club & Residence) in Sharm-el-Sheikh. Incredibly well organised and friendly staff, well-looked after kit (if sometimes showing general signs of wear and tear), free Nitrox (32%) for all divers, good boat with excellent crew, amazing house-reef, really nice air-conditioned diver centre (with shop, 2 class rooms, changing and storage facilities, etc) and good range of courses. In 11 days diving I only had one problem (busted hired inflator-house connector for BCD on both my reg-set AND the boat spare) which was sorted in minutes without any impact on the diving. The staff really couldn't do enough to look after the guests. Took the TDI Advanced Nitrox Course with instructor Tom Smith who was a great English instructor who really took time to explain the science behind the theory with practical examples and plenty of extra information and materials over and the above the course itself. He was also an excellent dive guide and videographer. Very highly recommended. Would consider visiting again.

Unfortunately I had a very bad experience diving with TEK TRIBE, in Dahab. I was very disappointed with the unprofessional staff and management, and lack of up-to-date knowledge of Technical diving. Next time I will try another centre.

Just had an excellent Tec diving Holiday at Nirvana in Dahab Egypt with Raymond Hermans. For 11 days just tec dives all superb. I would recommend him not just for Tec training but also as a no-nonsense relaxed Tec guide. Thx a million Raymundo, "I'll be Back"!!

Again 11 days of Tec Diving with Raymond Hermans from Nirvana Dahab. A spotless perfomance. Seen the underside of the Arch almost as many times as I have seen my own frontporch:). All dives were meticulously planned and executed towards perfection, but procedures remained relaxed and fun. I feel priviliged to have been on depths and seen things that not many people have. I would recommend wholeheartedly Raymond Hermans as a Tec instructor/guide in beautiful Dahab. Also thanks to Ashraf who took care of our equipment and mixed gasses to perfection! Will attach some nice pics of the acrh blue hole and the canyon.

I’ve just passed my ER-course in Dahab with Raymond Hermanns from Nirvana. If somebody is looking for technical dives or trainings – he is surely one of the best to choose! I had an excellent (and challenging) training with the result, that I feel much more confident now as a technical diver. Raymond is a great teacher! Thanks for your patience, all the help with my equipment configuration and the nice dives after the course, dear Raymond! I will be back soon…!

Thanks to Tom Steiner from Fantaseatec, Dahab for being an exceptional instructor. I took Adv Nitrox and Deco Pro in May 2009.
