This was the best thing we did in Hurghada. The crew were so knowledgeable and friendly. The pacing of the day is perfect. The boat is beautiful and lunch was delicious. I am so grateful to the crew for allowing me to realize a dream of swimming with dolphins. My husband and I had so much fun that we considered going again the next day

The excursion was well organized and the guides were very nice, in a good mood and helpful. We went to two different snorkeling spots and then we went looking for dolphins. After we found some, we could swim after them and watch them from the water. That was very impressive :) It was positive that the guides asked themselves if anyone couldn't see dolphins and then made a second stop so that everyone got the chance. Afterwards there was still the possibility to take a round with the banana boat. One of the guides records everything on an ActionCam during the excursion and then cuts the video together. The price for the film was absolutely okay. I can definitely recommend the trip.

We were on time during the appointment for the transfer but we waited an hour for someone to come and pick us up, without a response from our contacts on Whatapp or by phone. As a result, we arrived when the boat left without being equipped. Thus, we had no more room on the boat and at the first Snorkeling stop, everyone dived to follow the guide while we were still waiting for our equipment. Apart from these mishaps, the excursion lived up to its promises: magnificent seabed (which we explored alone at the time), photos and even swimming with the dolphins. On the other hand, the guide manages the whole group so he does not have time to take care of everyone. He gives the instructions, those who follow so much the better, the others stay on the sidelines. Also watch out for seasickness, the captain has a schedule to respect so he rushes off and it rocks a lot !!
