Mostly snorkelling trips then...

Full list is on the Thomson website. Though there is a guy with quads next door in the ground of the Resta Reef if you want to risk it.

Lilo's should be Ok in the pool - but not suitable in the sea around there.

When we were there in July 2010 you could use lidos in the pool but they are very expensive to buy out there , our rep had a supply in her boot of her car she was brill, hope this helps

brilliant ta, i have got a couple at home and was wondering whether to take them, as they can cut into our weight allowance, and leave them there, i know re sea, bit too windy and coral, looking at snorkelling, is one trip better than another?? and would like toi do quadding, camels and night sky, is that all one??

I would take them with you if your allowance will let you and pass them on when you leave,they do a bedwin trip ,but gets really dusty so bring a scarf to wrap around your face, otherwise you will have to buy one of them aswell, more cost and they aren't cheap, nothing is in the hotel or surrounding shops, quads and diving centre is at the hotel next door for your snorkelling trips and if you book on line you may get it cheaper? Hope this helps?

Snorkelling is with Oceans Red Sea, part of the Emperor divers group - but they are tied into Thomson if you've travelled with them and so you book through your rep (even if like me you've been on the boats all holiday already, diving, and just want one last crack at seeing the dugong).

When we went Thomson ran a separate snorkelling trip further south to the Hamata islands - more expensive but a more varied day out. But you can't have a go at diving on this one - Emperor's snorkelling trips all take a dive instructor along just in case you a tempted to pay a bit more and have a go.

If you want a quads, camels and stargazing trip just go over and ask the guy - argue a bit about the price and see what he'll do!
