    Private tour of Ras Mohammed with Bassam
    Private tour with Bassam Fantastic place the magic lake seeing Mangroves snorkelling etc. Bassam #Bassam our tour guide we found on here was simply brilliant. He went above and beyond. Nothing was to much trouble I have a false leg and struggled with getting into the water in some places because of rocks etc. Bassam literally gave me a piggyback out of the water. Nothing was to much trouble highly recommend him. Plus supplied water and fresh mango juice and all snorkelling gear.10/10

    Essential Trip from Sharm El Sheikh
    This is a highly recommended day trip offered by several local guides. We went with Mustafa (+201555304507) and he provides excellent service and is very considerate to his guests. He guides you on 2 snorkelling trips away from the crowds and is very safety conscious. Equipment is provided free and an excellent seafood lunch at Fares downtown Sharm is included. Communication vis WhatsApp is rapid and he is very flexible. The trip also includes the Salt Lake (definitely worth going in) and the mangrove area.

    Beautiful blues of the red sea
    Definitely a must do activity when out and about in Sharm. Really surprised by the clear,blue, turquoise, dark blues in this part of the world. A trip to the white island by boat was a great way to see the red seas beauty and also stay above water in the middle of a sea! The entrance fee was reasonable too at only $5 per person.

    Best guide in sharm el sheikh!
    We spent the day with Basseem at the national park and could not recommend any more! Was collected from our hotel and driven through all the main points of the park. He is so lovely and friendly letting us know the historical facts of each point as well as providing fresh mango and strawberry smoothies along the way. Took us to a private beach to snorkel, had the entire beach ourselves and spent 2 hours on the coral reef guided by Basseem. My boyfriend was a strong swimmer but he pulled me along the whole way back. Went for lunch at the Bedouin tent afterwards followed by some more snorkelling. The best guide in Sharm el sheikh! You can reach him on +20 155 305 0376 on WhatsApp, won’t regret it!

    Amazing snorkelling trip with a private guide
    Highly recommended a visit to Ras Mohammed National park. We arranged a private trip through the highly recommended Bassem, who was absolutely brilliant. He picked us early from our hotel and we had a full day of sightseeing, with two of the most incredible snorkelling experiences in Yolanda Reef, Shark Reef and Shark observatory. Given Bassem is a professional diver, at no time did we feel unsafe as he guided us through the underwater beauty of these incredible reefs. The are was quite as tourist boats are not allowed to stop and drop anchor there. As well as seeing the salt lake and mangroves, it was finished off with a delicious late lunch in a bedouin camp. Many thanks Bassem. Genuine review for trip advisor.

    Good if you do not come as a tour group
    Rent a car or hire a driver for the day, bring snorkeling & beach gear and have a great time. Seriously avoid the tour group, pay a bit extra to get here on your own and enjoy the full day. Tour groups bring you to four or five stops. But the two beaches and snorkeling at your leisure are well worth the slightly extra expense of getting here yourself. The main beach is not bad. But the snorkeling is pretty awesome for near shore. Avoid the tour groups to explore the reef at your leisure, bring lifejackets to float and explore extra long up the beach. Make sure you make it up to the hidden cove. The other good area is the saline lake, higher salinity, but very smooth especially for small kids. There are a few trails for some mild hiking. Despite there being campsites, I received different answers if camping was open or overnight was permitted.

    Best group activity I have ever done.
    We booked this through our hotel and was the best thing we done in Egypt. This has been my experience of a lifetime, we did snorkeling with the kids and went to the naturals parks . Im not a strong swimmer so I held onto the rubber ring with the swimming guide all the way into the sea. I panicked in the water and asked to return to shore but as he only had 1 rubber dingy we couldnt go back. The strong swimmers would also come over to use the rubber ring when they were tired. I am so glad I listened to the guard and relaxed in the water as I am so proud of my achievement. I have been home for 3 days ond we are still talking about it. You do have to pay extra for life jackets and equipment, but this is money well spent.

Did this trip with Aquarius who although more expensive than others I believe offered better. When compared to other boats lined up we had a lot more space on board and all equipment was in the price unlike others.

We did 3 stops, I didn’t get off on the 3rd but others on my party did. The first stop we snorkelled among the fish by the coral the sea was pretty rough but I still felt safe. It was amazing once I started to relax and enjoy the underwater view!

The 2nd stop was White Island, the pics were amazing that i took as I got closer the sea was turquoise. However actually getting to White Island was a nuisance from the boat. It was easy to stand up in but not with flippers on! Or to walk! But then taking them off I was standing on hard rock. The island was a tiny amount of sand surrounded by lovely shallow water but quickly got bored despite the view.

The 3rd stop I was told was the best but I was too busy sunbathing on board! The sea was a lot calmer at this point.

Overall although I have said some bad points the whole experience was amazing and once in a lifetime and would defo recommend

We are a family of 4 people and two children. After reviewing the comments here on Trip Advisor we found Bassem, this is his WhatsApp number +201553050376, he was together step by step, gave us everything, Bassem agreed to move early before the crowd, Bassem picked us up at 8.00 am from the hotel and then we went to Snorkeling equipment shop, they took goggles and fins, then Bassem insisted that we take a wet suit because he knows the water is cold this day, then we moved to Ras Mohammed. Bassem explained all the places we see and we go by car from the hotel until we reached Ras Mohammed then we went to the first stop which is Bab Allah, Bassem was a really good photographer who took the most beautiful pictures for us, then we went to the second stop which is the mangroves, then to the earthquake fault which was amazing Extremely. He explained it as depth and time, and then to the enchanted lake to take pictures. Then to Lion's Head Rock, the salt lake, and then go to the first snorkeling spot, which is Yoland Reef, Anmon City, Shark Reef. After snorkeling, we sat on the beach. Bassem served us fresh mango and strawberry drinks. Then he went to the rock of Ras Mohammed, we climbed the mountain and used binoculars to see Sharm El Sheikh, and after we finished we went snorkeling again. Bassem took some underwater photos and said it was free, then we went to the Bedouin tent and Bassem served us a delicious lunch in the Bedouin tent. That everyone around me, in Ras Mohammed loves Bassem because he is so nice and friendly After lunch, Bassem took us to relax on the pillow while we were drinking tea. After that, Basem offered to go into the water again, but after eating and relaxing, we couldn't swim again. Then back to the hotel at 16:20. Thank you Bassem for a day I will never forget. +201553050376 If you are in Sharm El Sheikh write to him on WhatsApp and you will never regret it. I highly recommend it

Snorkeling the reefs, followed by the visit to White island. Truly an amazing and beautiful day. The dive guides were awesome and they helped my wife who is a total non-swimmer get in the water, which was WAY over head, and guide her around the coral reef so she could enjoy the magnificent beauty of the fish life below. They even helped her swim to White island, and literally would not have her remain on the boat just to watch everyone else. A wonderful day on the beautiful Red Sea

Unfortunately this area is over used
We wer lined up along side at least 7 other boats .
I have done snorkeling in 3 other parts of Egypt and thay wer all better .
Water was not clear because of the sheer numbers of people.

I honestly this you can see more fish if you snorkel at your own hotel resort around 6am .

What you really want in Ras Mohamed National Park is an experienced and professional guide like Bassem, the local guide who lives in Sharm El Sheikh and knows everything about the area. At first I wanted to go to Ras Mohammed. Having read the good reviews about Basim here on Trip Advisor, I decided to write him right away. On WhatsApp +201553050376, he answered promptly and answered all my questions. Starting the day at the hotel, Bassem picked us up at 8:00 AM. We went to the snorkeling equipment store, then to Ras Mohammed. We went to many places, and Basim explained everything to us thoroughly about all these places, like a panorama. God's Gate, Mangroves, Earthquake Fault, Enchanted Lake, Salt Lake, Lion's Head, We went swimming in the best places in Ras Mohammed, such as Anmon Town, Yoland Reef, Shark Reef, and Shark Observatory. Away from the company's trips, away from the crowds, and after finishing, Bassem gave us Taza mango juice with delicious bananas, after that we went to lunch in the Bedouin tent, and the food was very tasty, then we drank Bedouin tea and relax a little, then we return to the hotel. 5 star service. Thank you Bassem for a day that my family and I will never forget. I recommend it to everyone, you will never regret it.

We went on the boat day trip. For the price it was good, and surprisingly uncrowded. There is a lot to see, but I was concerned that the six people on our boat that wanted to go scuba diving had never done it before. One woman couldn't even swim! The ocean is no place to practice something like that for the first time. I couldn't recommend one boat as there were 35-40 near-identical boats all cruising out of the harbour at the same time and all going to the same places.

Ahmed provided us with an incredible, magical day in which he led us snorkelling among the reefs before crowds arrived, and took us to some unique spots. We basically had every location and reef to ourselves - quite extraordinary! Very special.

Ahmed also gave us homemade mango and strawberry juice and we shared a truly amazing Bedouin lunch made by a tribe at a chilled beach hangout at noon.

It is well worth the money BUT make sure you have CASH! This is my only, but not insignificant, warning. I tried to pay with a card and it was a nightmare as we had to go to someone in a hotel that he knew, the result of which was I was clearly scammed by the person with the machine and paid a lot more for some made up tax I was not in a position to dispute or refuse.

But don't let that hiccup dissuade you - Ahmed is a lovely man, and we had one of the best days we've had snorkelling in his care!
