Full description

Cool off from the heat of the city and escape to the sea on a cruise from Hurghada. Climb aboard a speedboat and marvel at the attractions from the water.

First begin the search for dolphins, which takes approximately 45-90 mins. Once found you will be able to watch them from close range, and if possible, swim beside them. Environmental rules and regulations and safety factors apply, and it is best to be near dolphins without disturbing their nature.

After seeing these fascinating creatures up close the speedboat will stop for snorkeling at two different spots. Enjoy the unique colorful corals of the Red Sea and be amazed by its beautiful scenery.

The final destination will be one of the beautiful islands for the remainder of the time, where you can swim, sunbathe, and relax, surrounded by peace and nature.

The tour itself is very nice. We got to see dolphins, lots of fish, colorful corals, and were able to swim with the dolphins (depending on how well you can swim). However, the tour has the following organization problems: 1. Pick up. Pickup is very badly planned. The driver doesn’t speak much English and you have no idea where you’re going to. We waited about 40 minutes at the gathering point before the tour actually started. 2. Drop-off. Drop off is another nightmare. Our driver randomly stopped at a hotel for 20min before dropping us off. We missed our dinner reservation. 3. Photos. Highly recommend you to bring your own go-pro. I paid 30 euro to have go pro videos and photos. Videos were quite random and quality is unsatisfying. Not worth the money. Overall a good tour but with big improvements to be made.

Had a nice experience. We had snorkeled in Hurghada before, but the places chosen by our local guide were phenomenal! Beautiful reefs, fish and the island looked like you imagined yourself in the Caribbean. You are almost alone, not touristy. We were provided with soft drinks, water, fresh melon and grapes. The speedboat was taken care of. We had my 66-year-old mother with us. She did have some problems getting back into the boat, but the captain took care of that every time. We also had the opportunity to swim with the dolphins several times. There were schools of dolphins of 12-16. Beautiful to see underwater. Kudos to the speedboat captain, very friendly and attentive. He knows the best places and also points them out underwater.

Super great experience. We had a lot of fun and the first thing we did was swim with the dolphins. There were wild dolphins, but there were many tourists in the bay and it was more like a hunt. Nevertheless, the locals have taken care not to harm the dolphins. We had three different dive sites with beautiful coral reefs and were always there first, so you had peace and quiet. We had a great atmosphere on the boat and there was always good music playing, so did our gight
