Located in the beautiful Abu Tig Marina and next to the 4* adults-only Ocean View Hotel, our popular dive centre is operated as a joint venture with partners, Blue Brothers Diving.

Amidst the yachts of the marina our boat moors up each day just 50m from our centre and the hotel.

Most of our diving takes place on our day boat, Pegasus, where we offer 2-3 dives a day with third dives on request. Our Instructor-team (Moni, Mahmoud, Tiger and Elliot) are happy to show you around and on board we take care of all your diving needs. All speak English, German, and some other languages. If you so prefer, Tiger will even chat with you in Nubian!

Requests or questions? Daniela (administration) and Tobi (operations manager) are always happy to help and advise.

On board Pegasus, our eager-to-help boat crew, under Captain Waleed, takes the best care of you. Enjoy the varied, tasty lunch on board and each morning you will receive a fresh bottle of water with unlimited refills from a cooling tank; primarily to encourage drinking enough while diving but also to reduce plastic waste. This new systems saves about 20,000 plastic bottles a year!

Around El Gouna you find more than 50 beautiful diving spots ranging from aquarium-style sandy shallows to steep, richly overgrown drop offs. Rich in coral and marine life, especially the northern spots which are unavailable from busy Hurghada, these are in fabulous shape.

Our weekly schedule rotates taking into account weather conditions but some spots are cherished more than others such as the Siyul reef, a richly overgrown frame reef to the north; El Gilwa with its shallow bays and pinnacles, or Poseidon Garden, a huge stone-coral garden close to the reef Shab El Erg with its famous dolphin groups. Without exaggeration we easily have 2-3 chance dolphin encounters every week.

Apart from the beautiful reefs and coral gardens quite a number of famous wrecks are close by; Abu Nuhas even has four wrecks, mere metres from each other: Carnatic, Crisoula K, Giannis D and Kimon M.  This is diving for divers! Do 3 out of 4 in just a day; perfect to get your wreck specialty as well.

If you like it deep and dark, Rosalie Moller is your wreck of choice and even her famous sister-ship SS Thistlegorm is available for ‘early birds’. (Please remember that all special trips are weather dependent and charged extra on your diving days).

On top of all that, we also offer half-day snorkelling, diving and dolphin spotting trips from our comfortable speedboat. You name it, we might have it; just ask!

Finally, if you stay in El Gouna then we offer free transfers from and to your hotel included in your booking. For those staying in Hurghada, we have some great value private transfer options to get you from hotel to dive centre and back without delay.

Happy El Gouna diving!
