“Great snorkel around the blue hole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Lovely to see the variety of fish and depth of coral - and to see divers descending beneath us - a nice gentle snorkel with a guide was really relaxing and enjoyable, and the area wasn't crowded, which meant that we could swim along at our own pace watching the shoals playing in the depths..

Good organisation, and chance to get organised (and drink tea before and after!) at local cafe - all in all a great trip

“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

pictures of the blue hole wont describe the beauty till you see it. it's a great place to dive, snorkel and just sit in the sun. you can go in the morning and even dive at night! the fish and the corals have been protected well. may it always stay that way!

“Aquarium”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Like snorkeling in an aquarium:) very nice corals and a lot of small fish. I hoped to see some bigger fish, but nope.. The trip out offer a nice view at the outskirts of Dahab, and camel-riding.

“slightly disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Spent a couple of hours snorkelling here as part of an excursion but was slightly disappointed. Too many people crowded into a small space. My wife had difficulty getting into the water as you have to cross jagged,uneven coral, eventually got there after being physically carried by a Bedouin & passed to the guide! We were given a route to follow but this was being criss-crossed by other parties. My wife got kicked a couple of times as did one of my daughters. The varieties of fish were disappointing, we saw far more snorkelling from our hotel. Leaving the water was the same, only route was over dead coral. It may be good for diving but not for snorkelling, much better locations with far fewer people.

“Nice place but too much turist”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Nice place to visit, expecially the hole. I suggest to enter in the water not on the hole location, but more down, in the direction to RasAbugalum...the corals are more nice and more preserved in compare with the blue hole itself. Try to go early in the morning, becouse later usually turist come and it is crowded.
