Full description

Spend the day snorkeling in the crystalline waters of the red sea. Enjoy an exciting boat ride, explore coral forests and may even swim with the dolphins.

Trip absolutely recommended, well organized, the only flaw in the winter months because of the wind the water is very cold. Trip on the very suggestive island of Giftun, crystal clear water and a must-see stop. Back on board the ferry we moved to reach the best recommended area for snorkeling but due to the very cold water and the incessant wind a part of our group remained on the boat and a part snorkeled with the instructor. The organizers provide all the equipment free of charge from the life jacket to the masks with snorkels and fins. The instructor we had was called Ibrahim and he also allowed those who did not feel confident to swim alone to be able to dive with him because with a rescue donut he was pulling the less confident. Lunch on board with various salads, fries, meat, rice and pasta, and various drinks available.

Everything OK: a ship, places, equipment and food. The only minus is paid photos ... and it's like a grain: 25EUR or 35EUR film. They want you to sue and at the end of the trip you find out the price. It is better not to get caught up in it at the beginning so as not to waste your time. And that's how I greet Happy Mowgli;)

Enjoyed the Snorkeling. It was the clearest water I have personally snorkeled in. The boat was a fun relaxed atmosphere, suitable for all. I didn't really see any need to stop off on the Island and would have preferred another snorkeling stop, but I am sure there are some that would enjoy it particularly if they are not in a beachfront hotel. Our day was interrupted by the onboard photographer who was continually getting us to pose for photos and the taking families individually for a sales pitch (do I can only assume we were charged based on what they assumed we would be able/prepared to pay rather that a flat rate). The wife insisted we buy the photos although as yet we have no means to view them so won't be able to vouch for the quality until we get home! The day ended with an opportunity to go on an inflatable (banana boat or similar) before heading back to shore to be taxied back to our hotel. All in all a fun and relaxed day, but don't forget your wallet for photos.
