1. Marsa Alam: Satayah Reef Overnight Boat Trip with Snorkeling
Your aquatic adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Marsa Alam and heads to the small village of Hamata. Arrive at the harbor and board your luxury boat for the trip, then enjoy refreshments as you listen to a short introduction about the trip. Once you’re settled into your room, make yourself comfortable and admire the sprawling sea views as the boat heads to Satayah. After 2 hours of sailing, arrive at the reef and listen to a quick safety briefing to prepare you for your snorkel sessions. Jump into the water with your instructor and go in search of colorful marine life as you explore and learn about the coral reef. Hop back onboard the boat for a rest then enjoy another snorkel and swim session at a nearby lagoon. As evening draws closer, watch the sunset from the boat and enjoy a delicious dinner before spending the night stargazing from the top deck and listening to traditional Egyptian music. Wake up early on day 2 to admire the beauty of the reef before anyone else. Soak up the peaceful tranquility of the reef before other tourists arrive, which is the best time to spot dolphins and sting rays. Head back onboard the boat for breakfast and set sail to Abu Galawa where more stunning coral reef awaits discovery. After a morning of swimming and snorkeling along the reef, enjoy a tasty lunch on the boat before returning to Hamata Harbor.
