Very good trip with the Mo Salah boat! The crew was very good and friendly, the guys very clear with all the info and they brought us in a couple of beautiful places in non deep water to admire the corals and some amazing species of fish that we saw before only in the documentaries! The food prepared by the crew was very good, some Egyptian specialities that we really appreciated. Orange bay was a good stop, is well organised but too crowded (it is a touristic place so is normal). In the end we were happy also because we had the only day of the week without wind, so was super nice. We really recommend it! Value for money is probably the best option.

It was very fun. Every activity ran smoothly and was very entertaining. The guides were in a good mood all the time and always asked if we were okay with the next activity. During snorkeling, one of them even held onto me and my sister and swam with us because we were too scared to swim alone in the ocean. So you see they are very helpful! I can't say anything negative about this activity.

Der Betreiber war so hilfsbereit und informativ, OceanAir-Agentin Rania rief mich an, als ich die Buchung vorgenommen hatte. Es war in letzter Minute, aber überraschenderweise konnten sie es bedienen. Die Reise war unglaublich und das Personal war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Essen war sehr schön und das Boot war fast neu.

Our guide Alaa Elkonsol was extremely accommodating and friendly. The coral snorkeling was incredibly fascinating and the entire crew was friendly and helpful at all times. Gladly again anytime :)

There was some ambiguity with the pickup as you couldn't select your own hotel from the list. When we asked, we were informed in good time.
