An exceptional experience that I shall treasure for a long time! The Blue Hole was a comfortable cruise boat, with helpful and knowledgeable staff. My first snorkeling experience was amazing, I was made to feel very comfortable and secure! An enormous thank you!
I cannot swim but i went to ras mohamad and was encouraged to get in the water and do some snorkeling the tour guides got in the water with me and ensured all was safe i really enjoyed the experience and am already planning my next trip to Egypt the Hilton hotel in Sharks bay was also brilliant
Fantastic tour, fantastic staff, most willing to give the best out of the trip and also fix small problems that always turn up. They even called and said that they were going to be a little late for the hotel pick up time... very good service.
Fabulous tour and snorkeling on the reef, guides we all friendly and helpful. Only negative was that general information addressed by the Tour Guide(s) was conducted in non-English.
We had an absolutely amazing experience with this tour! Being brand new to Snorkelling and terrified of the sea I did cry when first getting into the water, the team were fantasic and really helped me. By the last snorkeling spot I was jumping off the boat into the water!
Food was fantastic and crew were great and really got involved, showing us a map of where we where and a range of fish we were likely to see. Only one slight issue we had was the bus was late to pick us up and that was purely the fault of another passenger who couldn't find their passport!! Couldn't rate this tour any higher!!
We booked this online the day before the trip and by that evening we had a fax to the hotel with pick up details and contact info. Transport to the marina was fine, bit chaotic at the port but that was more reflective of the volume of people there. We were on the 'Cinderella' boat. Very clean and comfortable with foam mattresses and seats. The staff were pleasant, enthusiastic and could not do enough for us. Lunch was delicious. The snorkelling was amazing and Ras Mohammed a must of you like the water. The variety of fish and coral was fantastic including rays. Guides in the water kept everybody right and a third watched from the boat. Currents can be stronger in some areas therefore would definitely recommend you hire flippers on the boat if you do not have them otherwise can be a tiring swim. Saying that, everyone from our boat was in the water and there were no issues. My mum got loads of support from one of the guides including giving her his mask when hers leaked. Buoyancy aids also available. Overall a great trip. Would definitely go again!
Well organised, good food, good company and the crew was excellent.
The Red Sea Cruise and Snorkeling trip was outstanding! The boat was large and was not even booked to half of its capacity. The guides were very knowledgable and provided a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Two thumbs up!
The trip is worth doing if you are a snorkeller. We went on a boat called Pirates. It was a beautiful ship. The staff were very freindly, especially Honemoon and Camel and the diver.unfortunatly I cannot remember his name. I cannot swim at all so I stayed on the board and at the second stop I was offered a personal assisted sea life viewing with the diver. Firstly, he guided the group to the corals and then he came back to pick me up. I was given a life jacket, I also asked for a buoyancy ring as I really can't swim. The diver was really good, he kept my hand at all times and when I felt that I had enough he brought me back to the ship and the other staff kindly put the ladder more down than they usualy do so I could easily reach steps. It was a very nice experience and I never thougt that I would be going snorkelling. We spent nearly 8 hr on the ship. There were 3 stops where people can go snorkelling. The lunch was nice too. We had a small crash but the trip was enjoyable and staff very friendly and professional. Magdalena&Michael
We had an excellent time. The staff was great. The food was average.
great trip, boat very clean and well maintained, staff very friendly
Well organised very helpful guys on the boat, good food and great snorkelling.
This an an experience of a lifetime, the corals and colours of the fish is better than any 3D or HD TV! Recommend you bring an underwater camera, even a disposable one you wont regret it!
Wow, one of the best days of my life. I really loved the snorkelling. The guides were really helpful and great with the children and less experienced swimmers- so everyone got to experience the beauty of the corals and fish fully. On board the boat, the food was great and it was really lovely day out. This is a must do if you visit Sharm El Sheikh
It was such a wonderful experience and the place is absolutely beautiful! The staff were very nice though one of them was over friendly asking some personal questions that shouldn't be asked! The boat was big and we were about 15 in total, so we had lots of space to move around. I would for sure recommend it for anyone who's interested in snorkeling!
The whole crew was awesome! Not to count the nature which speaks for itself. So we had a wonderful time!
This was my favorite experience while in Egypt. The transfer to the boat was great, the boat crew were great, the food on the boat was great, and the weather is always nice. You have to pay extra the national park entrance fees. A lot of people on our tour refused to pay and left the group because they assumed the guides were just trying to get money off of them. Common in Egypt.
The boat and crew were excellent. I have been on a lot of snorkeling trips around the world and this boat was absolutely the cleanest I have ever been on. The crew of the ship were professional yet fun. To top it off, the food served was decent.
Absolutely great! VERY good price compared to other sellers. Trip is gorgeous, 3 stops at 3 really amazing places food is delicious, fish absolutely stunning and multicolored. After arrival at port you are taken there by bus, be prepared to wait approx. 30 minutes to 1 hour before the staff eventually gets ready to take you onboard - that's the same for everyone so has nothing to do with Viator. REALLY WORTH IT!
Well done. Good snorkelling. Friendly staff and good lunch on the boat. Well organized. I would definitely recommend it.
Very nice; the tour guides on board were knowledgeable and put safety first. Well organized.
We had an amazing time!! I am 5 months pregnant and have never snorkeled before. We stopped off at 3 different points on the trip. At the 1st stop I panicked and wouldnt even get in the water and told Craig to go without me! After they all came back onboard one of the organisers pulled me aside and said that on the next stop he would take me in and stay with me so that i would be ok. He geared me up with a life jacket and a life saving ring to hold onto. I finally got in the water and started to panick, but the man was so patient with me and just eased me in and encouraged me to put my face in the water with my mask and snorkel on!. Once i did this I instantly calmed down!! The sights were amazing!! We then went sailing for a wee bit and had our lunch which was great! Lots to choose from - salads, potatoes, spicy beef, fish, rice & pasta and then we stopped off for our third spot of snorkelling. I was brave this time and ditched the man and my life saving ring no way in hell was i getting rid of the jacket though! and I was happy enough to wander off on my own to look at all the fishies! Overall, Craig and I really enjoyed this trip and were really happy that we did it! Also, I was a bit anxious because I am pregnant, but I had nothing to worry about although, I have to note here that this will not be the same for every pregnant woman - so far I have had a very easy pregnancy with minimal morning sickness..... the only giveaway is really the bump
