8-hour Giftun Island boat trip from Hurghada
Sail to Mahmya beach on the National Park of Giftun Island
Laze on the white sands and swim and snorkel in the coral-dotted sea
Enjoy an optional snorkeling boat trip to beautiful reefs
Leave your Hurghada hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the departure marina.
Be greeted by the crew, settle aboard the spacious, modern boat, and after a safety briefing, sit back and relax as your captain sets sail for Giftun Island. This untouched Red Sea islet is a National Park, with white sand beaches, crystal waters and offshore reefs.
Watch for dolphins and after roughly an hour, arrive at Mahmya beach on Giftun’s southern shores. Enjoy several hours to relax on the sands, laze under the parasols, and swim and snorkel in the turquoise seas to see the offshore corals. Drinks are available (own expense) from Mahmya’s bars.
Come midday, opt to join a snorkeling boat trip to some of the Red Sea’s most beautiful coral gardens. On arrival, dive into the translucent waters and snorkel among colorful reefs teeming with fish.
At lunchtime, savor a buffet meal of Egyptian and international dishes, including a kids’ menu, at a beach restaurant. Then, simply lounge on Mahmya's sands listening to the gentle background music, take more swims and snorkels, or enjoy activities such as beach volleyball.
When it’s time, cruise back to Hurghada where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

We had a one day trip to Mahmya. The place is absolutely amazing: white fine sand, clear blue water, lovely reefs for snorkelling. It's not something anyone should miss.
We had lunch included. The food was delicious, drinks were included too.
The guide was rather dull. He gave us no presentation of the island, and didn't tell us what time we would leave the island. He was just saying things like: now we eat, now we go snorkelling. He rented us a waterproof phone case so we could film underwater. It was rather useless as it wasn't allowing the touchscreen function to work properly. When we got back to the marina, we had to wait quite a while for the shuttle bus to pick us up - poorly organised!!!
