Perhaps more interesting for divers than for snorking. ... Included in the cost of the excursion a good lunch on board. Recommended.
Third time I have used this dive centre. They are professional and the service is always with a smile. I have been diving professionally and for fun for 45 years and I strongly recommend this centre. more »
Very nice place to spot turtles. .seahorse and more and the reef offcourse
Sha'ab Marsa Alam is one of the best easy dive sites in the area especially suited to those starting out on their diving experience. It is easy to reach as its located only twenty minutes by boat to port of Marsa Alam. The water is crystal clear with very good visibility that allows you to enjoy the full beauty of the reef. Snorkelers can safely explore independently without the need for a guide whilst remaining in the interior, whilst outside the reef may there can be some issues with the current and waves. There is a great variety of sea life and fish in a natural and safe attol with many caves, canyons and pinnacles. The immaculate environment is a natural and safe refuge for dolphins that are happy to swim with you and on occasions you can also see whitetip reef sharks. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to spend a wonderful day deciding whether or not diving should become part of their life !!
