The rateyourdive users can warmly recommend her:

  • At first I was nervous about my first dive but with Lola’s help and advice she took all my worries about diving away. In the water she made sure we were always safe and enjoying ourselves. Without Lola’s help I could not have done my first dive and she really inspired me to do more dives in the future. (James McKeown)
  • Lola was the best instructor I’ve ever had and it was an absolute pleasure to swim with her. She’s fun, guiding and knowledgeable as she keeps you calm and collective underwater, even going at your pace. I would definitely recommend her and dive with her again and again. (Danial Saboohi)
  • Despite her young age, she has been a thorough teacher who never let us being distracted during class. Thank you Lola for your patience and all these beautiful parts of your country you shared with us. (Océane Sarlin)

Even though we were 3 in the group, he planned our 1st dive-learning day to accompany and instruct each one of us individually to determine the learning pace and readiness of each. He is beyond professional, patient, encouraging and inspiring as well. (Nagla Hussein Saad)

  • Ahmed Helal’s expertise & guidance in diving the Canyon made the experience surreal & magical all at the same time. As an advanced diver with 125+ dives I didn’t think there were many places left that could take my breath away. Divemaster Helal pleasantly proved me wrong. His professionalism & diplomacy to our entire diving party were exceptional! (Joy R)
