Throughout the whole experience, from the initial contact enquiring about a diving package to the time actually spent with the Elite team, they were totally professional but always warm, friendly and welcoming (the Welsh hospitality shining through).
My wife and I dived with Alin (The Count) and Alun (Mr Alun) for a week and both of them new exactly how to treat me and my disability, which has left me paralysed from the waist down and so a wheelchair user. All my “needs” were catered for in a kind and considerate manner both in and out of the water, without me being made to feel that I was “different”.
Unfortunately this can’t be said for the other dive operators I have dived with before who seem to over compensate for the fact I’m disabled which just highlights the fact that I’m in a wheelchair (as if that doesn’t attract enough attention already!). As for the diving being the Red Sea, it was brilliant. We visited different sites every day (without repeating a site over the time we stayed) and they always managed to persuade the captain to go to the quiet moorings which meant we didn’t become part of the diver soup which tends to be the case around the more popular sites at Sharm.
My wife and I both had a brilliant time diving with Elite and would recommend them to anyone considering diving in Sharm El Sheikh, whether learning to dive or a seasoned diver, able bodied or disabled.
