Overall a good trip as the islands are very beautiful and the snorkelling excellent. The water was decidedly chilly and wet suits are required for comfort but not supplied or even offered for an additional charge. Smoking on board is a real downer for a non-smoker such as I so be warned. Paradise Island was anything but as we were forbidden from taking our sandals (to walk on sand?!!!) and the beaches full of other tourists, all of us with nothing to do unless you like swimming in a chilly Red Sea. The food is okayish but not much of it! A bit too much asking for additional money for comfort too. The two guides were brilliant, thanks.

I did this trip in December, the pick up was on time although I do suggest to communicate with provider regarding the exact location near your hotel, it was bit confusing for me as I had to wait outside the main gate not the lobby. The crew on the boat was absolutely fantastic, Ibrahim and Mowgli the stars! I did not know swimming but Ibrahim was very helpful, he even dragged me with my float to nice views to see the fishes and corals. The food was good, also options for Vegetarians. Giftun Island was a stopover for an hour but very nice beach and you can even see the corals and fishes in shallow water. Magawish was a marvel and I was lost to see the beautiful colorful fishes. The gear they provided for snorkelling was decent. This tour was more than what i expected and definitely recommend this operator.

The tour is well organised. After a 1-hour trip boat ride to Giftun island, we had plenty of time to enjoy the sun and beach, and the first snorkeling as well. Then we head up to another two snorkeling spots in the Red Sea to watch the coral reefs and undersea nature. The tour guides Ibrahim and Mogley were so nice and passionate to make everyone happy. Would highly recommend to everyone who would like a snorkeling tour in Hurghada!
