We recommend!!!! The trip was well organized from start to finish and just fantastic. 10 minutes after departure we saw the first dolphins and we were led into the water by one of the guides. You couldn't really swim with the dolphins because they are just very fast, but it was an unforgettable experience to see the animals in the wild and from so close. The first snorkeling afterwards also went very well because the guide led us through the coral reefs, which made you feel safe (especially in the current situation in Hurghada). The second time you snorkeled you could explore on your own and then there was food, which was also very tasty. All in all a great trip with very nice guides. I warmly recommend it. (You can rent a snorkel, mask and fins there)

This tour is a MUST for any marine life fan! The transport to the boat was very punctual and good. The boat was covered all around so mine didn't have to worry about heat stroke. The food was also very good. The highlight were the dolphins that we could swim with. Even if this is related to a bit of luck and patience, because as others have written, the situation is very hectic and you don't have much time to go swimming with the dolphins. However, the organizer cannot do anything about that. The tour guide was very competent and entertaining and could also speak fluent German. The coral reefs are definitely worth checking out. I totally recommend this tour!

It is certainly an unforgettable experience. We were a group of 7 friends, we managed to swim with the dolphins and even record them underwater. The food is super acceptable and the staff are super nice and fun! The boat is super nice and clean. They take you to two places to snorkel, you can see a lot of fish and corals, it looked like an aquarium! I recommend living this experience.
