There are currently 7 known dugongs living in these Red Sea waters. In Abu Dabbab you can find two of them, who have been titled Dennis and Dougal. In this location you can also observe the gorgeous sea turtles, which usually make their nest in the shallow waters of Abu Dabbab. You may even encounter the friendly guitar shark, but don’t worry, they don’t bite. All of this will of course be enjoyed in addition to the beautiful colorful reefs of the area. If you are not a snorkeler or a diver, you will still enjoy your day on the well-organized and clean beach of Abu Dabbab. At the conclusion of your day in the sun, you will be returned to your Marsa Alam accommodation.

The excursion overall went well even if we did not see a turtle or Dungong, the purpose of our reservation ... Small concerns regarding the precise charge at the hotel. Indeed, I received an email signaling our departure at 8:30 am 'while the guide was there at 7:30 am' ... Once on board the vehicle, we are kindly informed that we have to pay an extra because our hotel is out care area. It seems that it was stipulated in the email, after verification, it is not clear at all !!! Too bad for this inconvenience.
The journey from our hotel took about 25 minutes to Abu Dabbab Bay on the Red Sea. We were greeted very friendly, beach chairs, parasols were assigned to us. It started with the snorkeling guide. Along the reef, very nice, all intact corals, little fish, turtle and stingrays seen. A lot of half-day tours in the morning.
