“Not as good as Ras Mohammed”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We did this and the Ras Mohammed trip, but this trip involved more travelling to get to the snorkelling spots, they seemed to go to the furthest part of the island before we got in the water. The snorkelling wasn't that good, didn't see much coral or fish, no better than you could see snorkelling off the beach at Sharm. Each location was rushed, and we didn't' get the 45 minutes at each snorkelling spot we were promised. The whole trip seemed very rushed, and as we were a party of a few English on the whole boat, we seemed to be ignored with instructions, while most things were told in Russian or Egyptian. Luckily a nice Egyptian lady told us important info in English, such as lunch was being served below decks. Thanks to her if she reads this.

“return trip”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Had visited the island on 2 previous occasions & decided to go again as we were in the area for 4 weeks. 3 stops for snorkelling, 1st.grumble is too many other boats there at same time, we had to swim under 1 to get back to ours as he had blocked the clear passage! Seems to be a greater number of fish than in previous years & more healthy coral. Beautiful, sunny day. 2nd. moan,we did the trip during the Egyptian half term, every time you came back from snorkelling you had to shift a family of Egyptians who had taken over your space & were sitting on your bags etc.Avoid school holidays!
