The Penguin dive centre is located yards from the waters edge on the sea front on the Mashraba reef and the vibe is very friendly, fresh, relaxing and positive. This really is life in the slow lane – the most effort required is putting your kit in the back of the truck or putting it on before falling in the water.Our confined and open water areas are only 10 minutes from the centre.Our facilitiesinclude Penguin Hotel , restauran,a classroom with air-conditioning, TV/DVD, White Screen and its own mini library with all the DVD and CD-ROM PADI materials. We also have a screened changing area, shower rooms, fresh water rinse tanks, secure kit storage, open air lounge. our smaller size groups & courses create an intimate and sociable atmosphere between guides, guests and crews. Our multi-national staff speak a range of languages and guests from many different countries will find all their needs catered for, both above and below the water.

My diving experience was with Emad we dove in Ras abo galoum which i totally recommend as a diving spot. The instructor was informative, fun and super friendly. And i had a very good value for money. Would definitely choose the center again in my next dive.

My diving experience was beautiful. Our instructor was extremely helpful and we had an amazing time underwater. It was my first time diving and I thought I would be terrified but it was simply great, I'd love to repeat it as soon as possible.

Me and my wife decided to do a diving course and we were referred to Penguin through a friend... It was the best referral ever. People are amazing, professional, friendly. And we had a very patient instructor "Tarek" who was keen on making sure that we understood everything perfectly and clearly and he was always open for questions as well.... More

The crew is very professional in their work, they're too friendly and a nice company. Their gear is very clean and well maintained. Their prices are moderate. Its worth the experience. I completed all courses up to padi rescue diving with them; and i would definitely do the dive master with them.
