Met dugong there plus it is very beautiful reef to dive, esp. less popular southern part

We met dugong during second dive and apparently it is at Marsa Mubarak much more often than in Abu Dabbab. All three dives were beautiful, but I especially liked less popular southern part which is basically gentle wall dive from the zodiac that ends above huge hard coral garden. The farthest from the bay the more interesting it gets but... More

This is where a lot of boats stop for the afternoon to look for Dugong in the seagrass. But in fact, the reefs here are much more interesting than the grass (although we did see a ghost pipefish). The reefs are packed with nudibranch, octopus, scorpion fish, lionfish, pipefish, boxfish, stonefish, rays, clownfish, morays etc. Fantastic place.

Marsa Mubarak is near the hotel about 20 minutes by boat or 15 minutes with a taxi. Go snorkeling or diving and watch the turtles and seacows

We spent one week in the nearby hotel and visited the Marsa Mubarak almost every day. This is a wonderful place, you can see here a lot of beautiful things : the best is the dugong, but there are huge sea turtles, different type of rays and many reef fish. This place is a must visit if you are in... More

Mubarak is great, both for diving and snorkeling. Part of the reef is very shallow and there is sea-gras with tutles so you can see a lot during snorkeling. For diving the reef is also very nice with lots of coral and fish. If you are very lucky you can meet the Dugong. If you are please make sure that... More

Myself and my girlfriend went snorkelling here by taxi in afternoon Jan 1st and spent 45 glorious mins swimming with a dugong in the middle of the bay. Creature was truly amazing and so peaceful. Well that was until it spies a turtle with only 1 front flipper and off it sped and attempted to drown the thing for daring... More

I was taken here by boat from Duck Superior dive center, after being told that this was a beautiful dive. I was extremely disappointed. I saw a lot of dead coral and very little underwater life. The people on our boat who just went snorkeling saw turtles and other interesting things. A photographer/videographer on board told me that it was... More

WE visited Marsa Mubarak with Colona Divers and then again on our own to snorkel. The bay has two beautiful reefs on either side with plenty to see, but the seagrass in the middle is the real attraction. It brings in so many turtles that we lost count, as well as rays and other interesting fish. Our highlight though was... More
