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.

This tour was absolutely amazing, so many great experiences included. We had a great team on board, delicious food and such beautiful moments. With water sports, massage, snorkeling, introductory diving (such a great experience!!), food & drinks, a great yacht trip and a great atmosphere, we couldn't have imagined a better day! It was also great that we were a very small group on board and therefore there was a lot of space. THANKS

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.

very good person, good hearted and gave us amazing information and the conversation was very lovely. we were very happy. thanks alot. I definately strongly recommend.
