Full description

Get picked up from your hotel and brought to the speedboat. Then, gear up to jet off for 2 or 4 hours on the water. Glide out into the Red Sea from the Hurghada Marina. Enjoy the views and Egyptian sunshine as you travel out to Magawish Island and swim above brightly-colored coral. Snorkel alongside pristine, subtropical islands.  Continue to Giftun Island and the mangrove-fringed Abu Mingar, Paradise Bay, or Orange Bay islands. Feel free to stop whenever and wherever you'd like.

If you're lucky, you may even see dolphins and get the chance to swim alongside them, or to watch them from afar. Sit back and relax on the ride home, taking in stunning views as you approach your starting point. Finish your tour at Hurghada's new marina.

My wife and I booked a few weeks before our trip to Egypt. I was a little skeptical of the tour as it did not have many reviews. However, the reviews it did have were positive so I decided to book it. I don't regret the decision! We were promptly picked up from our resort which was outside of the pickup zone of Hurghada so we had to pay an additional fee, which was communicated very well from the beginning (keep that in mind). We were met by a nice woman who checked us in, escorted us to our boat and introduced us to our crew. Sofa was our guide for snorkeling and Wiss was our boat Captain. Both were amazing! We snorkeled at two destinations and then hung out at Paradise Beach on Giftun Island. I originally wanted to see Maymya Island but was told that we could not...? Paradise Beach is good for snorkeling and Orange Beach is good for taking photos and playing in water that tends to be ankle deep. My only complaint is the undisclosed picture and video service provided at a cost.

Our private speedboat trip in Hurghada was amazing! Our route was planned by the captain - we went snorkelling by magawish island, then stopped off at a beautiful small island about 20 minutes later with crystal clear waters. We managed to see a group of 6 dolphins right next to the boat which was a big bonus! I think 2 hours is the perfect amount of time for this. Free transfer to and from our hotel also. Highly recommended.
