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

Support at our hotel without problem. We then arrived to our speedboat to go in search of the dolphins which was very fast since the guide knew exactly where to go. We were able to swim with them for about 1 hour. Incredible time. We were then taken to several snorkeling spots with magnificent corals and fish. Fresh fruits were offered to us as well as drinks. We were then able to swim in beautiful transparent water. We recommend, this day will remain engraved.

The process went smoothly. Were picked up at the hotel at the agreed time. The speedboat was occupied by a total of 8 people. The skipper immediately found dolphins and we were allowed to swim with them several times. Afterwards we were able to marvel at 2 reefs. It was great that the skipper always let the group decide what to do.. That's what I call customer-oriented.
