It’s a question we get asked a lot!

Maybe you are on a gap year, have a few months free time or are just sure about your dreams and where you want to go.

Our good friend James Fletcher suddenly felt the need to breathe from a tank. He spent some time with us in Dahab. James writes:

“Under Pressure Divers changed my life, for the better, forever.

I moved out to Egypt around 2011 and signed up to continue my training all the way from PADI Advanced to where I am now – a long-term teaching PADI MSDT.

I was diving with the guys on a daily basis for a number of years – the training and experience provided to me by Caleb, Eunja, PADI Paddy, Paul, Julia and Antoine was absolutely invaluable to my professional career and development over the years I was in Egypt.

Since undertaking my training with Under Pressure and subsequently working around the world in a variety of dive centers, I can honestly say the relaxed and informal attitude coupled with absolutely perfect professional integrity and the massive wealth of experience available on hand has made Under Pressure the best dive operation I have ever been a part of.”
