Top ways to experience Pavilion Dive Centre at Jumeirah Beach Hotel and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.

This was our 10th dive , such a unique experience .
Friendly staff and great orientation for conditions of sea and surrounding elements of dive .
Proper equipment along with great weather and under stream water .
We dived for ship wreck (Dara) at 21 meter depth for 45 min , good visibility made it perfect dive . Although very strong current in the depth was undergoing but we were briefed and able to handle it .
I recommend it to divers

I went to see if I could book my kids on the Padi bubble maker and was told that the dive centre was closing down. Was disappointed as hadn't been told and can't see anyway where it says that

My teenage son went along to a taster session at the Pavillion centre. He is partially deaf. The instructors were very good in explaining to him what to do. There was pre work on land explaining how to use the equipment and hand instructions for when underwater.
He was then taken to the pool where he went through 30mins on dive time on the surface first then deeper. He thoroughly enjoyed it and now desperate to do it again.
Staff in the cerntre very friendly to the parents waiting behind!

If you are in Dubai the JBR beach is one to tick off. There are all sorts of activities for kids. There are water adventures which include jet ski's, water paddles, kayaking, and many more. The soft white sand is a pleasure to sit on but if you prefer chairs there are a row of them laid out for you on the beach. It's a great day experience.

Looking for a local dive center, I decided to go with Pavilion. The location is very nice, the staff is very friendly. I made my open water diving licence and I am sure to continue because of the very good experience here.

As a first time diver, getting the open water certification was a lot of fun and very enjoyable overall. The staff are all friendly and easy going.
(I have no idea what to write everything was awesome)

We did a big family holiday last August and my husband and I decided to take my father in law on a short dive as he hadn't dived since passing his padi in 2008!

The staff were amazing. They made sure we could put our equipment together ourselves (even for me, 2 years since my last dive, I struggled slightly!) and even helped us carry everything down to the shoreline.

We entered the water on the right side of the Burj Al Arab which was a lovely sight. Our instructor knew we only wanted a short dive so said we would be out for 30-40 minutes.

The swim out was lovely. Although there wasn't much to be seen, however vis was good.

The swim back was horrendous. Swimming through jellyfish with loose strands floating around. Amazing to see them, but being stung countless times was not fun!

Our instructor was surprised and said he had never seen so many before.

Overall we had fun, and it has given me the bug again!

My wife had never dived before and their diving experience seemed ideal. You cannot fail to be impressed by the Hotel but the diving experience was disappointing. The water is unclear because of the build work and tides and visibility is very poor. Go across to Korfakkan near Fujeirah or to Dibba on the other coast for a truly memorable experience. It's about 2 hours away but well worth it. The rating is about the diving experience and nothing against the staff or the hotel

This used to be by far the best outfit to dive with in the UAE. I'm not sure if Jumeirah Group, who own the place, are deliberately running it down over the past year but it's seriously declined. The excellent course director Phil has left, the replacement manager Elena has also now left and nobody is in charge. The young, inexperienced instructors that are left generally mean well but are left without anyone really running the show or ensuring standards. By no means is it a career development centre for sure anymore. The place rested on its laurels for years and having dived there recently I was appalled at the unfriendly atmosphere. It used to be busy and now it's dead. The dive sites locally are appalling too - head over to Oman or fujairah side instead. Diving Dubai side generally - don't bother with pavilion, unless you're just looking to start diving and do your entry level open water. I witnessed one of their instructors letting his students gear up at the pool incorrectly, followed by himself making the same mistake! Pavilion - not the place it once was.
