Full description
Get picked up from your hotel and brought to the speedboat. Then, gear up to jet off for 1 or 2 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. 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.

    Great trip. We were picked up at the hotel with a little delay and driven to another hotel. There we were allowed to decide where the speedboat would go. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and admire them from 2 meters away. Clear advantage over the large and overcrowded ships. The price justifies itself here. Then we were dropped off directly at the sandbank ... pure Caribbean feeling. Again, only the small boats get there. We were then allowed to steer the boat ourselves as far as the port. A great experience with cola and snacks. Thank you. We are excited.

    Transfer from and to the hotel back without problems and very punctual. Arrange briefly and in advance by mail or whattsapp. The whole trip was only private as agreed and according to our wishes. Captain very relaxed and friendly. Cool guy. It was a lot of fun and well worth the money. Clear recommendation!

    wonderful. after a short discussion about what we want first, we started right away. first on an island with an upstream sandbar, then after an hour (booked 2 hours) to the reef for snorkeling. as an alternative to the reef, a wreck would have gone. Reef unfortunately shows that there is a lot of tourism. but were there alone. We were collected 10 minutes before the end of the 2h, then we went back. On the way back we luckily saw dolphins and our captain covered the tour by 15 minutes. was very good. Definitely recommend it. Top boat, top equipment, cool captain!
