Hi! We did the experience today. The equipment for snorkelling isn’t expensive, you have to pay only 10€/10$ and this experience is very involving without any problems if you can swim, also if it’s your time! The activities are a lot, so you don’t have much time to relax, the jeep journey is very funny! The landscape explored is isolated and you’re completely involved in nature!

just back from a most wonderful day exploring the blue canyon and snorkeling in Dahab. It was a great day from start to finish and I would like to thank our wonderful guides Sammi, Mustafino and Arfett(sorry I can't spell that ). They were so friendly and great fun and knowledgeable about anything that was asked from them . It was my husbands and mine first time snorkeling and they were so patient. Thoroughly recommend this trip 👌

This was an absolute wonderful trip. We were so lucky with our guide, he was very knowledgeable, spoke 3 languages and was super friendly. Really looked after us, and was great at time keeping. It was the perfect mix of not waiting around but also not rushing us. He gave us the option to not do comfort breaks on the way to our destinations, and explained that by doing that we would be the first tour arriving and would avoid the whole convoy of tours. We really loved and appreciated that so much. We were always the first and had the places for ourselves to take pictures and enjoy without being bothered by others. Food was great but be mindful of the toilet facilities, this is not to do with the tour but you might want to bring your own toilet paper. If you can come prepared with bikini and flip flops in your bag to avoid going into the changing areas which are quite precarious. Definitely bring trainers but not your best clothes because of the dust. Perfect area for snorkelling!
