Really recommended! We set sail when the weather was great, turquoise blue wherever you looked - but very warm temperatures are really a must, otherwise it gets quite chilly to dry off after the snorkeling trips. Two stops of 30-40min each, the guide always made sure that the whole group stayed within earshot. Island is also quite pretty, especially if you're a fan of social media-friendly photo spots, otherwise just nice to chill out. The only drawback: plan significantly more time. Takes quite a long time to cast off and on the way back there was a long standstill to wait for guests who had booked an additional parasail experience.

Probably one of our favourite day trips we’ve done in Egypt. all the crew were so friendly and really encouraged to get everyone involved and to make sure everyone’s enjoying themselves. We snorkelled in 2 different sport for about 30 minutes it was AMAZING!! So beautiful. Orange bay is gorgeous although it’s fairly busy, we spend just over an hour there. Photographer got plenty of photos of everyone there and a video of the whole day including us snorkelling. We paid £60 for all our photos and the video. Highly recommend doing this!!

The crew was frendly and atmosphere was on point. We really felt Like part of a family. The Food was delicious and i enjoyed unlimited coffe so much. We also had snacks. The boat is spaciouse and clean. The corals were breathtaking with a lot of colorful fishes around them. This is a must see thing when visiting Hurgada. I can’t recommend this trip enought. I also love the pictures and videos that Ahmed and Isam took, they are really talented photographers so you can relay on them. They are truly profesionals so for cheap price you get amazing captured moments from this outstanding trip.
