We booked this trip very late night before and they were very responsive and provided all information very quickly. We were taken to marina first, where we embarked a ship that took us to a place where we did banana and sofa ride (that was very funny and exciting), after that we had around 45 minutes snorkeling stop and later one more (all equipment was provided on the boat). Then we took a part of our group to Orange Island and then they took us to Paradise island - we had around hour and a half at Paradise island before returning back to marina. Lunch was provided on the boat ( coke, Red Bull and chips were offered for additional charge). Overall it was very good and relaxing trip, worth money. Boat crew was also very nice, entertaining and helpful. Good value for the money.

Amazing experience! Honestly do not wait and book this trip! Outstanding service provided by lovely, friendly people. Smile have never left their faces! Breathing views of the Red Sea. In one trip we have done water sports, 2 stops for snorkeling and the island stop! Lunch was provided on the boat. It was very tasty and freshly cooked. Good for both adults and children! The best boat trip I have ever been on for amazing value!
