I can highly recommend SimSim. Samir and his crew are amazing. It's an early start but well worth it, because you are out on the Red Sea before all of the other tourists and they make sure that everyone is safe when out snorkelling- always with a guide and small boat. The service on board, breakfast and lunch is perfect. Got to see so many dolphins and was lucky to see them swim right underneath me. Big thumbs up from me. Thank you from Sharon & Daniel

I have always dreamed of swimming with dolphins but I do not support any animals being kept in captivity. When I found out about SimSim I was surprised they do the dolphin tours in the Red Sea and I booked straight away. It did worth every penny! It was the most amazing experience I could ever ask for. We were picked up by a very friendly gentleman and the guys on the boat was very friendly ensuring everybody is having a great time. We found two groups of dolphins - first one which was not very playful and the second one that was very playful and stayed with us for a little bit. It was absolutely brilliant to be near these beautiful creatures. The snorchling at the coral reefs was great as well,just beautiful. The food on the boat was great as well with the afternoon snacks like watermelon and donuts. I can’t remember the names of the guys on the boat but they were just all great. I cannot recommend this enough. We will definitely be doing this again in the future but will need to practice the swimming so I can keep up with the dolphins :)

We are an English family with 9 & 10 Yr old girls who chose simsim following recommendations on Facebook. Not the cheapest operator but you definitely get what you pay for and would strongly recommend using this company. We chatted with others at the hotel after and their trips with others were crowded, rushed and not anywhere near as good. Boat is very comfortable and so much space (small group size). Nice food and drinks for whole trip (sea sickness allowing). Staff very welcoming to non-German speakers and made such an effort to look after our children's safety. Good equipment (short wetsuits worth paying 5 euro for) and an inflatable speedboat towed out to drop snorkellers off near the reef to save swimming long distances against currents. Knowledgeable team really cared for the dolphins and environment and put a big effort in to find them for us. No one was rushed until everyone was happy (some people got back in for 2-3 swims with dolphins). Snorkelling the coral reef was fantastic too. Early start is well worth it to be the only boat with the dolphins. FANTASTIC

Nice day trip to see dolphins in the red sea. Pick up from hotel on time - good Nice boat Good staff Nice food, but it would be nice with more of healthy snacks like fruits. We saw a lot of dolphins and where very close to them - a really good experience DOWNSIDE: People are allowed to SMOKE on board !!! It's really nasty to sit and have a cigarette as a non smoker. I don't wanna have lung cancer...

We had heard so much about SimSim from a friend that my son & I decided to take a trip with them rather than go through the hotel & travel agent recommendation. We were not disappointed! We were looked after so well, on the day we chose for the trip the rest of the guests were German but that did not matter. Everything was explained to us in English & if anything I felt like I got special treatment! Every time there was a dolphin sighting the team made sure I was one of the first in the water with them & I had my own guide Kareem for snorkelling in the afternoon who took me to all the best areas. The day was fantastic, to be surrounded by dolphins in an open sea is the best feeling in the world. The food & drink facilities were good & the fact that Samir went the extra mile to find dolphins away from other boats made our experience even more special. My son enjoyed the day as much as me & I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. I will certainly be doing it again. It was simply one of the best days of my life - thank you!
