Amazing experience!!!! I highly recommend it, it was a dream I didn't even know I had. I cried inside the snorkel mask with so much emotion swimming with the dolphins. Simple and tasty food, with plenty of quantity. Boat had a shower with drinking water to wash after entering the sea, super friendly and helpful staff. The only place in Egypt where I tipped because I really wanted to. Thanks for the experience!! Even those who can't swim well and won't be able to keep up with the dolphins will enjoy an incredible view. There is no beach (with sand) on the promenade, for those who need to know. Women: I wore a bikini without any problems.

Transfer was 20 minutes early and unfortunately the mini bus was very full. For us, however, the journey only took 15 minutes, so it was ok. The snorkeling stops were well planned. The highlight was swimming with the dolphins. The guys from the boat were all very friendly and knew their way around underwater. So value for money was really great! And pure goosebumps when swimming with the dolphins

We had a very nice and relaxing boattrip. The snorkling was great and we saw a lot of dolphins. Crew was very friendly & helpfull. Some small remarks, maybe you need to put these in the description on GetYourGuide : - touristtax € 2,5 pp - in description it says ‘snorkling equipmen’ included, but not mentionned you need to pay €5 for a wet suit - in description it says ‘all softdrinks included, but cola light/zero was not and needed to paid… - in the description it says ‘snacks included’ but there were no snacks… only some chips which was for sale at €2,5 for a very small packet… So our expectations were a bit different than what we got. But overall it was a nice is experience.
