A nice experience, a must in Hurghada, but choose wise the company

The itinerary is very nice, you will have time to do 2 snorkel sessions, swimming on the island, sunbathing and a lovely lunch on the boat with free drinks. They will take photos and movie for an extra charge. However we had a very big problem with our departures. We waited for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes for our departure, because as per the crew a family was 2 hours late. We were not able to find out the true and however this was not our problem whose fault was. The crew was reluctant to depart without those 3 guest and only after our second argument when we said that we will get off the ship they decided to leave the port and the other guests were brought on the ship 20 minutes later by a fast boat. They decided to give us a free banana ride which meant that you had to sit on the boat for an extra hour even if you did not want to ride the banana and you had a booking for your dinner. Nice and helpful crew. Very bad management...

Super fun trip on a gorgeous beach with turquoise water ❤️

Out of all the trips we book while being in Hurghada, this one was definitely the most worth one ❤️ The boat ride was super nice for sightseeing and taking beautiful pictures. The snorkeling was super fun. The staff were really nice. The food was pretty tasty. But the most outstanding was the Giftun Island, I totally loved it being there and was amazed by its turquoise water. I only wished we would have stayed more than 1h on the island as the time over there passed so quickly and did not have much time to truly enjoy it. Another small drawback was that the public beach we've been taken to, was quite crowded. In conclusion, if I wanted to visit the island again, I would probably look for a trip that will offer more hours on the island itself, most probably on the Paradise or Mahmya beach. But notheles, this trip was really amazing and would definetly recommend it

Great day out for Peale who want to enjoy snorkelling or watch

We were in a group of between 20 and 25 on a very comfortable boat. The day consisted of travel to the island where we had a designated area to relax and swim on the beach, then move on to a large area of coral at sea and as a group swam around this. We then had lunch on board which was delicious and plentiful for the normal appetite. There was one more opportunity for a swim and then a leisurely return to hurgharda. The staff were great fun and fully trained to ensure everyone was safe. Equipment was available if you don’t have your own. Great value for money and a memorable day. However if you are a bit nervous about the swim check with the staff when you arrive at the coral area to give you an idea of where you will be swimming.

Great day out but really restricted on Giftun island.

The crew and the boat were really good (Malek). When you select your snorkelling gear, take your time and select a good mask as it is essential for a good experience! Salty water in your eyes wide open and your enthusiasm will be gone fast! The snorkelling was amazing and really fun! On the island though we were told to stay on the same spot on the beach. The beach and the water were excellent and we could have a great splash! I can recommend the trip but don’t expect much from the island, it’s more about snorkelling. Food and hospitality were excellent! No pressure for underwater photo purchase, although they made a lot!

All day Snorkelling & beach Boat trip - awesome!!

As a family of 7 people with ages between 20 months and 60 years, we chose this boat trip as there was something for everyone. Snorkelling and stopping at Giftun Island beach. What a fabulous day we had, seeing all the sea-life and splashing around in the sea. Well worth the price-tag, with lunch and drinks included too. Bought the pictures on CD from the onboard photographer - was well worth it, they are great. Don't hesitate get booked on this trip, Team Memo made sure we all had a memorable time. Dolphin watching on the way home as well was a bonus!
