    Mr. Tarek is one of the most sincere, professional and genuine people I’ve ever met. I was that lucky to dive with his guidance several times meanwhile was the one who brought real fun to my diving experience, I still remember the first time I joined his dive, I would never forget it. For Tarik, security comes first and I really appreciate how strict he is about it! Actually, when a demand arises to relax and have a nice time, sea view/dahabia divers pops up first to my mind, I’m in love with this crew, at first, I found them friendly, honest, comfy, helpful, professional and beyond amazing.. but now, they are friends, trust me you’ll love them. I hereby recommend having this amazing experience to each one.

    When I think about diving I also think about Tarik. I did my Open Water and Advanced back in 2000. 17 years ago ! His noble principles and sound approach to matters of diving made a good diver of me.Instructor since about ten years ago albeit these days in hibernation (motherhood, family etc). Always safe practices, always personal touch and always about diving and enjoying the underwater beauty first. I find these qualities crucial and important in our chosen hobby / sport. Many a time in the world we see diving centres putting their sales first with safe practices last where personal touch and warm friendliness are nowhere to be seen.With Tarik you will be safe and you will enjoy the Red Sea. If you are beginner you’ll be in good hands and will have a great time If you are experienced diver you’ll have your dives tailored with a feeling and will have a great time. Because of good,professional and noble people as Tarik, individuals who just get first taste of diving have an opportunity to develop the feeling and immerse themselves joyfully into underwater magic. Hand on the heart,this was the case with me and am sure with many, many others who started at Penguin with Tarik at the helm. Tarik made Penguin what it was. In the next few years we hope to visit Dahab again , for sure it is Tarik that we shall seek to find again. Cheers !

    Penguin divers is a fantastic place to fun dive or take a course. Tarik and his team are extremely friendly, helpful, professional and basically amazing! Everything you want / need is right there at the Penguin Village: accommodation, restaurant, trips in and out of the water, airport / bus transfers…. It’s on the sea front and very close to shops and facilities. I can’t rate them highly enough

    Some of my best memories of Dahab were penguin divers and Tarik in particular being so friendly and helpful. I always felt safe diving with his dive centre. I look forward to the day I can go back with my family.

    Tarik is unquestionably one of the nicest, kindest people around. I have dived with him, and Penguin for a number of years and they are some of my best memories. It breaks my heart that Egypt is suffering from political stress as Dahab is the most amazing place. Tarik is highly trained and highly experienced and diving with him is always a pleasure, and an honour.

    Tarik and Penguin Divers are the best! Ever since i started diving, there is no other center in Dahab that i ever even considered diving with. The whole crew are professional and really care about making the experience of the divers loads of fun. Diving with Tarik in particular is something else! Because of how experienced he is and how calm he is under water, you feel extremely safe. He is also super quick with handling any unexpected issues during of after any dive, he is someone I truly trust.
    On a personal level he is a very positive, life-loving person who makes everyone happy just with his vibe and that is reflected among his buddies at Penguin Center, where they all have been working there for years and really love the place.
    Penguin center literally feels like home to me and all the entire crew feel like family, bless them!

    I have started my diving experience with Penguin based on their reputation and my friend’s assuring reccomendations around 6 years ago. Before meeting with Tarik, i have heard too many cool stuff about him tackling his experience, passion, friendly character and all was confirmed and came to reality when we actually met.Tarik and Penguin diving centerbecame since then like a familly for me not just a diving center. Very strong bonds ties me to Tarik and Penguin diving center including the whole Crew while can’t forget to specifically mention Hanan, Mostafa(Tifa, Fouad, Ahmed and Mahmoud El Shami (is not a staff but one of rhe familly members). Although i currently live abroad, however, i make sure every year that I go to Dahab to refresh my unforgettable experiences with Tarik and Penguin Diving Center crew. Wishing them more sucess and definetly recommend anyone to experience delighting moments and memories with such a sincere passionate and professional individual and diving center.

    Tarik is one of the fewest who are really passionate about their job. Diving for him is not just a regular job that pays the bills, his passion about the deep blue is something that you’d notice just a few moments after you start a conversation with him. I chose to learn this sport at Penguin diving center based on their reputation and I’ve seen what I’ve been told about them. Tarik is very professional and strict when it comes to safety, while maintaining a positive and welcoming spirit that catches your attention and pushed you to try to catch all the possible experience you could gain from such a skilled diving instructor. He manages the center in a very well organized way that his colleagues and subordinates speak nothing but good words about him behind his back. I’ve enjoyed spending time with each and every member at the Penguin diving center, and I hope I could pay them another visit soon.

    It’s quite rare nowadays to find an interesting character like Tarik. Extremely professional and intelligent, Tarik has been always able to influence the lives of those working or diving with him. And as Dahab is unique, Tarik is one of those few people who share such uniquness with Dahab itself.

    I only have positive things to say about Tarik and penguin divers. In my opinion they are definitely the best dive shop in Dahab, with great staff and great vibes. The dive masters and instructors are all very friendly and passionate about their job, they never fail to make each dive memorable and super fun. I’ve been diving with them for more than five years in a row and every time has been fantastic, all members of staff are like family to me and I couldn’t recommend Penguin divers more highly.

    Tarek is one of few exceptional senior diving professionals who excel all around.
    I had the pleasure of diving with him several times; he’s very much experienced, knowledgeable, respectable, details oriented, very well organized, puts safety first, and at the same time has an amazing spirit & sense of humor. In short; diving with Tarek is safe, rich of experience, and so much fun.
    As a diving center manager, Tarek utilizes all his capabilities and experience in operating a family-like diving center, where everyone enjoys what he or she does.
    As a diver, you feel at home and enjoy a well organized, safe, and fun diving experience with all the team.
