“Surreal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The trip to Giftun Island started in the morning by bus to a close small harbour where we were given all the equipment for snorkeling. After, we got on a boat and we went straight to Giftun. There is a wilde island where people go mostly for snorkeling. I loved the place and I imagined I am Crusoe on an unknown island, all by myself (despite the groups of tourists, guides and locals) enjoying the sun, the silence and the amazing blue water of the Red Sea. We had a brunch , lunch and afternoon snack on the boat. It was also a stop in the middle of the sea, when the most courageous ones dove in to see the corals. Wonderful experience!

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

When I first dipped my head in and saw that wall of coral I had to remind myself to breathe ;-)

Following that reef wall all the way round, to see the fish up close and watch the coral as a living thing was an amazing experience.
