We were picked up from our hotel in Makadi on time (for an extra fee of 100 EGP per person). Then the crew welcomed us nicely to the boat and gave informations of the tour. The boat was clean and nice. The snorkeling area was a common one for all tours- a really nice coral region in the middle of the sea. We got great photos of ours taken by the photographer on the boat during the day. The lunch was above the standards in Egypt and we were offered drinks during the whole day. Landing on Giftun Island (Orange Bay) requires another 100 EGP per person, which definitely worths! We stayed on the beach for 2 hours. Our guides were really helpful and cheerful. We loved the tour, would definitely recommend :)

The day started badly with a one hour late pick-up! The program of the day: 2 snorkelling stops the first is really beautiful to see but there are too many people several groups which complicates things. The second we are alone with a few divers who do not bother but the site is a little less pretty because the fish and corals are deeper and therefore less practical in apnea. meal which is simple but good always in a very good atmosphere. We end with the orange bay it's heavenly but again too many people. Fortunately we are the last to leave the island which allowed us to appreciate the beauty of this truly sublime one at the end! Return in style with a show of wild dolphins. In general I highly recommend this excursion a big thank you to Sam for his good humor! Thanks to jamica for the sublime photos. You are a top level team! Sarah from France

We were traveling for quite a while as we were the first to be picked up. We are right on the yacht, from which we head towards Giftun Island. Shortly before the island we had a quick look at a dolphin school. Short stopover on Giftun Island, a bit relaxed, took a few pictures and ate / drank something, then it went to the actual destination. First round of snorkeling with a life jacket and fins, lunch in between, then another round, everyone could decide on their own equipment. The underwater world is still very beautiful despite the coral bleaching, and it was definitely worth it! I strongly recommend knowledge of English, it makes communication a lot easier, even if German is on offer. Yes, the guides speak German too, but to explain the process, etc., they speak almost exclusively English
