Overview

Experience Egypt’s underwater splendors on this full-day Red Sea snorkeling trip by board from Hurghada. Cruise out onto the sparkling Red Sea, and drop anchor at three prime snorkeling locations. Don your own snorkeling gear or the provided onboard equipment, and enjoy ample time to waft through the crystal waters past dazzling corals, exotic fish and perhaps even turtles and rays. Alternatively, just swim in the sea or sunbathe on deck. Your experience include round-trip Hurghada hotel transfers and a delicious lunch served aboard your boat.
  • Full-day snorkeling tour by boat from Hurghada
  • Cruise out onto the glittering Red Sea and visit three prime snorkeling spots
  • Dive in to explore brilliant coral reefs and see a dazzling variety of exotic fish
  • Watch for other incredible marine life such as spotted rays and turtles
  • Choose to just sunbathe on deck or swim in the waters if you prefer
  • Refuel with a tasty lunch served on deck during your trip
  • Use the provided snorkel equipment or bring your own facemask and snorkel
Leave your Hurghada hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the departure port for your full-day snorkeling trip. Step aboard your boat and find a comfortable spot on the shaded or sun deck. Meet your friendly crew and, after a safety briefing, hear an introduction to the snorkeling stops planned for the day.

Then, enjoy a scenic cruise out onto the Red Sea to the first site. Your knowledgeable skipper will drop anchor at three prime snorkeling spots during the day, each known for its coral reefs and good variety of marine life. As you sail, hone your tan and watch for the dolphins that visit the local waters.

On arrival at each site, put on your own snorkeling gear or use the equipment provided on board, and jump into the water to explore.Admire the vivid corals, and drift through schools of exotic species of fish such as clown and butterfly fish, groupers, parrot fish and more — all brilliantly visible in the translucent waters. Watch, too, for other marine life, such as spotted rays and turtles.

If you prefer not to snorkel, content yourself with dips in the sea or simply catch the rays on deck — the choice is yours. During your trip, take a break at around midday to enjoy a scrumptious lunch served on deck by the crew.

When the time comes, sail back to port and finish your trip with a drop-off at your hotel.

A modest journey. Recommended for those who have never seen the underwater world. Pieved you on an empty island where there is only the inscription paradise and nothing more. Snorkelling from the shore, seeing only a few coastal fish. Do not see sea turtles or other bigger fish. Life jackets are not even offered - especially for those who snorkel for the first time or do not swim.

Very well-organised from start to finish. Pick-up from our hotel arrived on time and took us to the dock where we boarded the boat after collecting complimentary equipment. The guys on board were super friendly and kept the children on the tour amused by making funny headgear from beach towels! We were clearly briefed on what to expect and the crew spoke multiple languages very impressively. The first snorkelling site was about an hour out to sea and immediately we got in the water we were surrounded by hundreds of beautiful exotic fish- our guide, Shark, even showed off an enormous eel. The fish were completely at ease with the humans and swam right up to and all around us. After a 45 min swim we got back on the boat and travelled a short distance to the next site where we were again surrounded by all sorts of sea creatures. Lunch was served on the boat after that and was delicious with a good variety of different dishes. After lunch the boat stopped at Giftun Island, where we were able to spend the time however we chose, sunbathing or swimming. There was plenty of coral with gorgeous fish just a few steps into the ocean and miles of white sand beaches so, even though there were many tour boats and tourists, it didnt feel crowded or overly busy. On the trip back we were invited to view the pictures the crew/ guides had taken throughout the day: although we were encouraged to buy the CDs of photos I didnt feel under pressure and chose not to make a purchase. On landing, our transport was waiting to take us back to our hotel. We were very pleased with the whole experience and would definitely recommend it.

Overall, good trip, the boat ride to the snorkeling area was pleasant and comfortable. Once at the location be prepared! With many other boats in the vicinity it is very crowded and is a bit of a 'free for all' although the guides tried to keep us together but it is very crowded. This part of the trip was a let down. Snorkeling was okay but I guess as the place was crowded by people I think this must have spooked the more exotic fish as we only saw a few. The staff on the boat and supporting in the sea were very good and not pushy on selling their photo's and videos back on the boat so this was very nice. I just think it was too rushed and crowded and with younger children, less able snorkelers it was not the best. Food was good and adequate so no issues there. If members want a more personal and a little more time then I would suggest a different trip. Value for money was okay but I was not prepared for the amount of other boats from other tour guides in the same location and arriving at the same time.

This day trip could be much better if the initial stop on the beach on Giftun Island was omitted. The beach there is just the same as on land and this long stop is a waste of time. This is supposed to be a snorkeling trip, nut sunbathing. The other two reef stops were good. The lunch was also good, and the staff on the boat was very friendly and helpful.

It was a fantastic day. Starting with the transfer from the hotel to the friendliness and helpfulness of the guides and boat staff. Lunch was delicious. The 3 stops breath taking. My son panicked, but was helped by 1 of the instructors and had a great day. We would go on this tour again.

This trip was amazing. The people were polite + friendly. We visted Giftun Island for 1 hour and then two snorkelling spots for 45 mins or so each. Even down to the photographer who asked if we were a couple (being gay we were hesitant..) said yes and he smiled and said hold hands for a photo.. A++
