Start the day with hotel pickup at a time that’s convenient to your schedule, starting at 8:30am (this flexible tour can be up to 8 hours long, and the boat must be back in port by 4:30pm). Transfer to the Sharm el Sheikh jetty to meet the crew of your private snorkeling boat, then enjoy a cool welcome drink as you go over the day’s itinerary.
Choose between two world class destinations: the Straights of Tiran and Ras Mohamed National Park. The Straits of Tiran divide the Red Sea from the Gulf of Aqaba, and offer a dramatic underwater landscape of narrow channels filled with thriving reefs, fast currents, and vibrant marine life. Opt for Ras Mohamed National Park, and you’ll spend the day exploring one of the Red Sea’s most iconic snorkeling destinations, with 185 square miles (480 sq. km.) of protected territory that shelters hundreds of species of fishes, along with whale sharks and manta rays. If desired, members of your group can also try an introductory scuba dive (price not included in tour, please advise when booking).
You’ll make three stops throughout the day to snorkel and swim with your PADI-certified guide, who will help you identify fish, find the perfect snorkel spots, and learn about the Red Sea ecosystem. When you’re ready to refuel, the onboard chef will prepare a barbecue lunch with fresh salads (vegetarian options are available, or you can upgrade to a seafood barbecue when booking).
Return to port by 4:30pm, and finish the day with return transfer to your Sharm el Sheikh hotel.
