Nice snorkeling trip

Picked up at 8 am, at 9:30 am on the boat. 2 stops and 3 possibilities for snorkeling. The sea cows were not there and there was 1 sea turtle on which a number of boats were released simultaneously. So busy! On the boat itself a man or 25 so nice and quiet and the space to sit where you wanted. The food was delicious! Enough soft drinks on board and friendly crew. The DVD of € 32 with photos and video of the trip is not worth the money. It is a non-personalized DVD with everyone on it including the personal photos with your partner or family. There is no fish on it but everyone is waving several times or the ok sign on the boat or in the water. There is a general video of Egypt both above and below the water. Back at 3:30 pm in Port Ghalib.

Fab day out

Pick up prompt a bit of hanging about at jetty but although very windy and sea very choppy the reef was beautiful. The turtle was quite elusive but we found one eventually OMG what a sight. An amazing experience lunch was ok not my cup of tea but edible and the germans on board certainly approved with plates piled high and a big tray of fruit bought round to finish off. If in Marsa Alam book it you won't be disappointed I must add only for fairly strong swimmers I did trail behind a bit. As soon as I signaled I had had enough the boat was straight over to pick me up. Loved it would defo recommend.

Very nice trip

It was very good but too touristy and too busy. You had to keep an eye on the leader and the other swimmers of other boats, so that we could not watch the sea turtles much.
