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, sunbath and relax, surrounded with peace and nature.

It was the cheapest tour we booked and actually the best at the same time. The man on our boat was super nice and funny too. All wishes have been taken care of. Other reviews write that the boat would be too slow for a speedboat. I see it the same way, but it didn't bother us. For the dolphin junkies: we watched them for about 5 minutes but didn't swim with them. The dolphins didn't want to and then you shouldn't force them, right! Greetings from Bavaria! Here I just write again ear alla! So that there is proof that there are no fake reviews. - Tim

Very nice experience! We actually got to swim with the dolphins, and not just once. Due to the maneuverability of the speedboat, we were able to go to different snorkeling spots than with a large boat. The biggest advantage is that there are only a few other people on the speedboat, which makes the snorkeling experience a lot better. The only downside was that the speedboat seemed to have had an engine problem which meant we couldn't go at full speed. The guide was great!

Excellent A bit pricey compared to other activities, but well worth it. You can go much faster and closer to the dolphins, and even jump into the open sea and swim with them! It's unforgettable. The snorkelling is just amazing. The person who takes care of driving us by boat adapts to our desires. We had done a group outing the day before, it was already great but then it was the best. Knowing that we are a family with 3 children of 11.6 and 3 years old. Even the little one was able to snorkel and loved it. Thank you again, it was magical and unforgettable. In addition, our children had forgotten their 2 diving masks near the boat stop, and our driver found them for us and had them brought back by Uber. I recommend+++
