Overall this trip for its value was absolutely fantastic. I’m still stunned by the trip a day later. Starting with the simple pick up arrangement and the driver Magdy Soliman was absolutely a 5star host and service from pick up and drop of. The boat trip with all of its activities were so much fun. The food was classic Egyptian and very tasty. The orange bay was a beauty of an Island, which needs to be discovered when staying in Hurghada and it’s surrounding. Overall the whole boat crew were absolutely amazing and very nice people. Again, the full day and their service was very much appreciated. We would do this trip all over again when we come back! Cheers from a very happy customer!!!

Cool off from the heat of the city and escape to the sea on a cruise from Hurghada. Climb aboard a speedboat and marvel at the attractions from the water. First begin the search for dolphins, which takes approximately 45-90 mins. Once found you will be able to watch them from close range, and if possible, swim beside them. Environmental rules and regulations and safety factors apply, and it is best to be near dolphins without disturbing their nature. After seeing these fascinating creatures up close the speedboat will stop for snorkeling at two different spots. Enjoy the unique colorful corals of the Red Sea and be amazed by its beautiful scenery. The final destination will be one of the beautiful islands for the remainder of the time, where you can swim, sunbath and relax, surrounded with peace and nature.
didn't see any dolphins. but the guide and several others on other boats looked for a long time. the speedboat driver was brilliant. he made the trip
Your activity begins as you are collected from outside your hotel, from where you will transfer to the boat marina where you will find your Zodiac Boat waiting for you. You will then be helped into your life jacket and mask, after which your guide will provide you with all the instructions you need to know for your experience. The Sub-wing consists of two wings mounted together, which are able to be tilted independently of each other. Your boat will tow you at a slow and gentle pace, as you maneuver yourself by tilting the wings of the device in different angles. Simply hang on to the wings by your arms and steer by pointing the wings in the direction you want to go. Tilt both wings downwards to dive and upwards to resurface for breathing breaks, and communicate with your guide who will be with you the whole time. A roll is achieved by tilting the wings in opposite directions. Followin...

We really enjoyed the tour and can only recommend it. The entire crew and our guide were very friendly and personable 10/10. The pick-up was a bit late, but we were contacted directly and we were informed. The boat tour was lovely and there were several stops to snorkel and swim. In Orange Bay you had 2 hours of free time that was worth it! Afterwards you could ride a banana boat and a sea sofa. Back at the port, we went on to parasailing. The queue was a little longer and we had to wait a while accordingly. Still, the staff was very nice. We were then driven back in a taxi. All in one absolutely great! And the crew on the boat was just amazing
We had the best and nicest guide Mr. Magdy Soliman !! The trip was wonderful, we were allowed to snorkel twice and the island was wonderful. Mr. Magdy stood by our side from start to finish and took great care of us and made sure that we were fine. Very commendable. The next time we will book it again and especially when Mr Magdy is there !! Thanks very much
Great trip with lots of activities, Ibrahim and Mohamed took great care of all guests ... Snorkeling was really heavenly and the stop at Orange Bay was just beautiful ... you should see A DREAM ... Highly recommended ...
