What You Can Expect

Red Sea Snorkeling

Red Sea Snorkeling

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.

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.

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++

I was picked up at my hotel in the morning after which I was given snorkelling gear and I spent a whole day on the water. We snorkelled for around 45 minutes each at 2 different reefs with lots of fish and beautiful coral and in the afternoon we made a 1 hour stop on Giftun island. On the way back to Hurghada we saw a group of dolphins as well. Lunch was good and coffee, tea and softdrinks were all included. I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Overall this tour was excellent value for money.
