I concur with the last report. We happened to visit on a dive boat with Emperor. Dyson the Dugong was in the bay, you could tell this straight away as he was being hounded by three ribs full of snorkellers. OK, so I did want to see him, but whilst we sat at a respectful distance, in 3m water (which... More

If you like to see the dolphins, seecow or turtles, this is the right place to go. You can walk from hotel The Three Corners or for few money go by quad.

The beach is clean and quite with little waves depending on the time of the day. However, the water was clear and it is a very good spot for divers.

We've been snorkeling in Marsh Mubarak (second time) and seen a lot of fish in many colours. The sea was a bit rough but not to cold (22 degrees Celsius). On the way back we were like a rollercoaster; waves up to 3 meters high. The instructeurs were very helpful and gave pointers to prevent seasickness. A great heads up... More

We've taken a 2 hours trip to Marsa Mubarak once. It was better to stay in our Abu Dabbab Bay because we didn't meet anything interesting in Marsa Mubarak: no turtles, no sea cows. May be we just won't lucky that day, it was cold and windy. There also were a few boats looking for a sea cow, including a... More
