If you are there just for snorkeling then you can do it outside of Dai Pescshori in Dahab. Pricey. Too many people around.

I only did snorkeling. Still the colour of the coral reefs and fish is amazing. You can see a lot of these just next to the shore.

I was sick and congested so had trouble equalizing and caught up with the group at 20 meters. I am so glad I did! Ended up being my favorite dive I had all day which my husband seconded.

Exceptional experience for sea lover diving or snorkeling, not suitable for first timer as the depth there is around 320 m, you can find a guide to escort you through snorkeling. Overall I loved it.

Yes, you can snorkel with your child... taking the usual measures of precaution, of course (like appropriate equipment, watching permanently...). It takes special free-diving abilities and training to go deeper than 3-4... More

Yes, they say it is dangerous and... there were some incidents, (near the border with Israel) indeed, but as far as I know, none of them at the sea side. In all the touristic areas there are a lot of police and military... More

Best Snorkeling in the Red Sea (0 Replies)
I am planning to visit Egypt in April and I would like to know which places have the best snorkeling? I am interested in seeing colorful fish and coral. I am also interested in excellent snorkeling right off of the beach. I heard Ras Muhammed’s Shark Reef is good. I also read that Safaga is good too but there are also many negative reviews. Could someone who has been to both places compare them? Also, how is the snorkeling in The Blue Hole? Is it too deep for snorkelers? Thanks in...More

Ok I have NO CLUE. I have been researching Egypt for a while now preparing the trip of a lifetime. The more I read the more parts I love! Yet, I know they might not be the same, but Hurghada, Sharm, El Gouna and Dahab...I have even heard of Marsa Alam and other places!!! They have me so confused as they all seem to have the same end--beaches, snorkling! I'm def. staying in Dahab because we wish to do the White Desert/Moses trek so it's easier to stay in Dahab.

Great trip. But you could come a little unstuck with your timings as there's a lot of travel involved, plus a fiendish border crossing at the Allenby Bridge. Have you considered going direct to Mt Sinai from Sharm? You can stay in a nearby hotel, recover from the flight and climb the mountain at night if that's what you want. Be warned it will be cold! Personally, I'd get to Sinai about 8am, rest up, climb the mountain and see St Catherines and then get a good nights sleep cos I think...More

If you want comments you need to write what you are planning on DOING in each place. Just a city name......nothing much to comment on . Day 6--is a Friday. Transportation stops by 3PM ish on Friday, If you are traveling by bus, I hope you are leaving early--and buses need an advance reservation. If you are looking to go to a Church on Christmas, many Churches need advance passes. I do not know which side of the Dead Sea is better. However, it would not be practical to go back to Jordan to...More
