Brilliant trip. All snorkelling equipment supplied, all you had to bring was a towel. Taxi picked us up from our hotel. Boat crew very friendly and helpful in and out of the water. Stopped twice for snorkelling and once for a beach stop wear sandals as the beach has a lot of stones . Had lunch on the boat. Highly recommend this trip.
Loved this trip... The staff were amazing and really took care of us onboard. Lunch was to die for and plenty of it!! All in all, a really lovely day and would recommend to anyone :-)

From booking this trip online to pick up from the hotel everything was fantastic , so glad i booked it . The day was great the guide talked you through everything on the boat before we stopped and explained things. My only moan is that our pick up back to the hotel when the trip had finished didnt turn up so a taxi had to be arranged to take us back.
Excellent trip. Really enjoyed the day. The rep didn't speak much English which was a pity. This did lead to some confusion regarding what was going on at times. However he was helpful having said that. Would I recommend this trip. YES. A great day out and very relaxing.
Slight confusion with the transport on collection from our hotel but after 15 minutes this was resolved. The trip itself was absolutely amazing and words cant describe the experience my family and I endured. Our boat and the staff on board were exceptional. the lunch provided was fresh and plentiful too. As for the beach and sea we were stunned at how clear the waters were. Snorkelling was out of this world and to see such variety of fish swimming freely at your feet and some even at my side was just brilliant and well worth every penny. Would recommend this trip to all. Couldn't fault it !!!
The crew were excellent, very friendly and helpful and interactive with everyone. This was definitely the best trip we went on. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Great day out and well worth the money. The staff were great and so was the food. The trip was actually longer than expected thoroughly enjoyed the day out and to top it all we saw quite a lot of dolphins which was a bonus.
You MUST use Viator for booking any activity abroad. We have just returned from Egypt (01/04/2014) after booking a snorkelling trip with Viator before we left for our holiday. EVERYTHING went like clockwork, communication was 5 star both from Viator and the Company that took us snorkelling in Egypt. Highly recommended. Joe and Glenda Molloy, Pwllheli, North Wales.
This was the best day we spent on our holiday. The boat and crew were all so friendly and welcoming, the boat was great fun and the snorkelling was out of this world. We saw so many varieties of fish it was incredible. An amazing trip.

After a shaky start from our hotel concerning the pick up (which wasn't Viator's fault - in fact the driver spent extra time looking for us!) - we only had a few pick ups - before we arrived at the boats - sorting out who was on which boat was a bit chaotic but it was finally sorted - off we went - the boat was clean and the crew really friendly - although there was no sign of life jackets and there was no safety briefing!
The day was great fun - we went to 3 different sites for snorkelling - and even managed to see a turtle! - the last snorkelling site was a tad manic and over populated by snorkellers. Lunch was fish with salad and pasta (we didn't eat as we had upset tummies - but everyone else was tucking in). The English on board were a minority (ie 3) but the crew made sure we were included. The loos were nice and clean too!
The crew made a DVD of our day but weren't pushy in making you buy one - and they asked for a tip at the end for the captain and boat staff - which was certainly earned.
Would thoroughly recommend this trip - especially with Viator - a lot cheaper than the hotels' reps are marketing and exactly the same.
This isn't the first trip I've booked with Viator and they never seem to disappoint.
Excellent value for money, the cheapest and the best trip I went on all week, greay hosts on the boat and good lunch provided. A definate must!
Excellent trip and excellent value for money.
Friendly hosts and made it a memorable day foe the wholefamily

Unbelievable for the price! Egypt is a cheap place to travel in general, but this surprised me!
The last snorkeling stop was incredible! It is fairly busy, but it is saturated with wildlife and we saw a giant moray eel (It's head was bigger around than my body!!!)
The food IS a hot meal served on the ship. :) DO IT!
The tour is really good. They provide snorekelling equipment and lunch on the cruise. Though I couldn't do snorekelling but my wife enjoyed it very much. I will definitely reccomend this tour.
The day included pick-up from our hotel, three snorkelling stops (Paradise beach on Gifton Island plus two water stops), and lunch, for £15 each. A bargain. Ship was spacious, the crew friendly and spoke many languages, and the fish were amazing. Would certainly recommended it and would do it again.
This was one of the best days of our whole trip to Egypt. The people were wonderful, the food was great and the snorkeling was awesome. I would recommend it to anyone.

Contacted at our hotel the day before the trip to advise us of pick up time.
The day went perfectly with excellent snorkeling and also many sightings of dolphins.
Nice on board meal and efficient return to hotel. Total value for money.

Amazing! Very cheap for the services provided! We went to three different spots, we had the lunch on the boat and we even saw dolphins! At the end of the day you are so tired that you don't want to know more about snorkeling! Really good!
This trip was well organised and was a really great day out. the three snorkeling stops all were great, the food on the boat was simple but nice and our guides were lovely. They let me have a life jacket as I wasn't a confident swimmer spoke great English as well as German and overall made the day a really great experience. Overall this trip is quite relaxing as you are allowed to go on your own in the water and told when to come back, but be careful of burning anf take planty of sun cream as we used loads and kept reapplying but still got some sun burn on our backs.

Fantastic day. Excellent value for money. A must if you are going to Hurghada

Once we were picked up it was great! The experience was breath-taking - we snorkelled in four, not three, locations - all of which had many boats and snorkellers in - with plenty of opportunities of viewing fish and coral. towards the end the "ice cream boat arrived - yes, ice creams delivered by boat!! Altogether a very memorable day ... except for the pick up! Oh dear! On being picked up at the airport our pick-up time for this tour was confirmed, but nobody appears to have told anyone else. After much panicing and telephone calls, the car eventually arrived to pick us up, and got us to the quayside just in time

Getting on the boat was exciting, then you were just out to the sea. The people that owned the boat were very nice and made you feel relaxed if you were scared about going into the water. They picked the best snorkeling views and it was an amazing experience, and one you'll never forget!

The trip was a full day with a very helpful crew, and we saw many fish too.
The staff and other passengers were friendly and we had a great time. The snorkelling itself was a little disappointing. We stopped in 3 places, the first was absolutely packed with other trips and very hemmed in. The other 2 spots were less busy but not as interesting.
