Picked up on time with a bus. We first went on the panorama boat to see the fishes and coral. (Also they will take pictures of you throughout the whole day and sell them afterwards to you. We did not buy them) After this we were dropped on another boat on the sea to go snorkeling. All the gear was included. (Lifevest, Snokerling and flippers). We stayed there for 1,5 houres. (Enough time) During this we got pickedup by solo on a speedboat and went parasailing while the others were still snorkeling. This was quick but still a fantastic experience. After this they brought us back to the boat with the others and got picked up with the panoramaboat again to bring us back to the bus. Whole day took about 5-6 hours. (On the website it said 3hours, def not got picked up at 10 and dropped of around 16:00) We didnt had any issues with this. It was totally worth of our money!

The trip was organised brilliantly, as advertised. We were picked up at our hotel on time and taken to the boat with other guests. The day started off with water sports, followed by a visit to the Orange Bay and a memorable snorkeling/diving experience at one of the coral reefs (highlight of the day). The buffet lunch served on board was delicious and plentiful. I took the trip with my family (wife and kids ages 11 and 13) and we really enjoyed the whole experience. Barracuda and his guys were on top of their game and were happy to help out with all of our requests. This was definitelly one of the top things we did while in Hurghada.

A fantastic day out with the family. The parasailing was so much fun.. Just a shame its not for longer.. We just about got three or four minutes in the air.. The catamaran was awesome and the snorkeling was just great and well organised. My only compliant was the amount of pressure applied to purchase photos.. They were over priced and pushed far too much on both trips. A great day was had by us all..

Wow wow wow! What an amazing day! The staff are so lovely and very easy to get along with, felt like we were at home and nothing was too much for them. Barracuda and Muhammad were amazing diving instructors; them and all of the crew were such a laugh! The food was amazing and so was the massage. Orange Bay was beautiful and looked like something out of a film. This trip is a must! Until next time!!

You feel very well looked after, from the beginning (pick up at the hotel) to the middle on the boat and the drop off at the hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. food is right. Instructor bombe (Baracuda) as well as the masseur. All in all a great experience. Highly recommended. Improvement: More bumbs in banana boat (you want to land in the water) and water couch.
