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.

We simply walked in after a reservation was cancelled at a previous hotel, they were more than understanding and gave us a room right away. A perfect stay if on a low budget and simply need a clean place to crash close to the Dahab...More
