Full description
Get picked up from your hotel and brought to the speedboat. Then, gear up to jet off for 1 or 2 hours on the water. Glide out into the Red Sea from the Hurghada Marina.

Snorkel alongside pristine, subtropical islands.  Continue to Giftun Island and the mangrove-fringed Abu Mingar. Feel free to stop whenever and wherever you'd like. If you're lucky, you may even see dolphins and get the chance to swim alongside them, or to watch them from afar.

    Our private speedboat trip in Hurghada was amazing! Our route was planned by the captain - we went snorkelling by magawish island, then stopped off at a beautiful small island about 20 minutes later with crystal clear waters. We managed to see a group of 6 dolphins right next to the boat which was a big bonus! I think 2 hours is the perfect amount of time for this. Free transfer to and from our hotel also. Highly recommended.

    Great trip. We were picked up at the hotel with a little delay and driven to another hotel. There we were allowed to decide where the speedboat would go. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and admire them from 2 meters away. Clear advantage over the large and overcrowded ships. The price justifies itself here. Then we were dropped off directly at the sandbank ... pure Caribbean feeling. Again, only the small boats get there. We were then allowed to steer the boat ourselves as far as the port. A great experience with cola and snacks. Thank you. We are excited.

    Transfer from and to the hotel back without problems and very punctual. Arrange briefly and in advance by mail or whattsapp. The whole trip was only private as agreed and according to our wishes. Captain very relaxed and friendly. Cool guy. It was a lot of fun and well worth the money. Clear recommendation!
