This experience was SO SO good! At around 7:30am, I was picked up from my hotel in El Gouna. After that, the rest of the participants from the hotels were picked up too. Upon boarding the boat, we were briefed by Adam and his team. They were incredibly professional and reassured everyone that everything was going to be good. The two drop offs at the snorkelling sites was UNREAL! I’m not the strongest swimmer at all so I was a bit apprehensive. The guides split the strongest and non-strongest swimmers into two groups and each group had their own dedicated guide to go into the water with. We were all provided with a lifejacket, snorkelling mask and flippers which made things a lot easier. The time on giftun island/orange bay was great too. A great chance to relax in the sun. I’d watch out for the bartenders to make sure you’re getting charged the right amount for drinks etc. In all, I was back at my hotel at 6pm after this tour. 10/10 experience. 100% doing this again!

The tour was very nice. Snorkeling spots were pretty, the group was divided into beginner and intermediate. Unfortunately we were only at the spots for a short time (20min), most would have liked to have had more time for snorkeling. Food was simple but very good. Orange Bay is very touristy, but very clean and has a nice infrastructure. Invites you to sunbathe and relax. Would have liked to have stayed a little longer.

Absolutely amazing trip. Was a bit skeptical having not booked a trip online before but I can’t recommend this trip enough! From start to finish the team running it were incredible, so friendly, welcoming and informative as to what we would be doing and when. The food was lovely too which is also always a worry!! Definitely book this trip and if I was here for longer I’d book to go again
