Revel in the sparkling waters and sunshine of the Red Sea on this full-day Tiran Island cruise and snorkeling trip from Sharm el Sheikh. Aboard a comfortable boat, cruise to Tiran, an island in the southern Gulf of Aqaba famous for its beautiful corals, lagoons and marine life. On arrival, kick back and sunbathe, swim and snorkel in the translucent waters as you wish. Float over multi-colored reefs, watch for exotic fish, rays and turtles, and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch on deck midway through before your return to Sharm.
  • Spend a day in luxury in the Egyptian sun
  • Sunbathe, swim and snorkel on the beautiful Tiran Island
  • Relax around the white sandy Tiran Island
  • Experience the splendor of crystal blue water, lagoons and coral reefs
  • See an array of tropical fish
Leave your Sharm el Sheikh hotel by air-conditioned vehicle, and travel to the departure pier for your full-day cruise to Tiran Island.Step aboard your comfortable boat and find a spot on the sun deck or in the shade. Then, soak up the views over the sparkling Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba as you sail out from shore.

Polish your tan and keep a lookout for dolphins as you cruise to Tiran, a rugged island at the southern end of the gulf that’s blessed with spectacular coral reefs teeming with exotic fish. On arrival, cruise around the island’s shores, soak up the sun, and make several stops to snorkel and swim in the crystal seas.

If you wish to explore underwater, make use of your own facemask and snorkel, or rent (own expense) a set of the snorkeling equipment available on board. Then, after a safety briefing, enter the translucent waters to drift around the vividly colored corals and shallow lagoons. Float by schools of reef fish such as grouper, wrasse and parrotfish, drink in the beauty of the coral gardens, and watch for rays, moray eels and turtles — all regularly spotted in the waters here. 

Around midway through, savor a delicious onboard buffet lunch before continuing to laze on deck and swim and snorkel.

Towards the end of the afternoon, settle back on deck and return to dock at Sharm el Sheikh. Your experience then finishes with a drop-off at the start point.

Tiran Island is a fun way to experience snorkeling or diving in the Red Sea. The first of three destinations was beautiful while the next two were a bit of a relative let-down. I spent the day at sea with many other tourists from all countries and had a great lunch. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Would recommend if traveling to Sharm!

Good guides, nice boat. I brought my own gear but ended renting their wetsuit. It was of good quality. Actually you don't need a wetsuit as the water is very warm but judge on the day and look at the wind. Water was warm but the wind was freezing. I dive frequently and would recommend this.

This tour was fun, cheap, and relaxing. The entire day was spent going to three snorkeling\scuba diving sites and going with a guide through the water. The photographer on our boat was amazing, and we ended up buying his pictures. There was only one good spot, the other 2 were a waste.

Very nice trip, beautiful beautiful beautiful. Snorkeling was fantastic, very nice staff at the boat, well trained and was looking after us all the time. Food reasonable, drinks just a few bottles of coke and water in the fridge. But this experience is not about the food at the end. A bit dissapointed with picking up from the hotel, we were picked up first and had to travel all around while they pick up other people. And once we arrived the guy who picked us up just jumped from the car and we never saw him again. I was expecting some instructions from him like where I have to wait or who will pick us up, but no, you have to go and find it our for yourself. So for the money payed I would expect a bit more attention to the customer from a different country.

It was not very clear that tourist can't land on the Island. Anyway, I did not touch water, so I was only an spectator on the boat.
