What people are saying about South Sinai

Absolutely incredible experience. The boat trip was lovely with amazing food cooked fresh on board during the day. The swimming in the sea was an experience however not too many fish because there were so many boats about. You’re betting off going off the pier and your hotel to see more fish. But the water itself was so warm like being in a bath. The photographer on board was sensational also!!!

It has been an amazing experience!! Our boat RAMIRA with all the crew have been charming! They have made us feel great at all times, Muhammed our diving instructor has been great! Snorkeling has been amazing too! I recommend this excursion 100%. I give it 5 stars because there is no more!!!

Our kids aged 7, 5 and 3 loved it and were super excited. Yes it’s not a real submarine… but definitely close enough for them. And especially the small ones can’t go snorkelling yet so this was a great way for them to see lots of fish and probably one of the highlights of our vacation.

Excellent trip. No fuss. Good pick ups and drop off. Boat great for family of 5. Went to 3 snorkelling sites. All v good. We saw dolphins too.

Everything was orginized great. Advise to everyone.
