Snorkelling Image

If you don’t fancy a dive in the deep, you can still see the Red Sea’s coral reef and rainbow fish – just sign up for one of our great snorkelling excursions.

Scuba diving might be our forte, but we’re experts when it comes to snorkelling, too. After all, diving isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But just because you don’t want to dive, doesn’t mean you have to miss out. The Red Sea has extensive shallows – 40% is less than 100 metres deep and 25% is less than 50 metres deep. Which makes it prime territory for exploring the sea life with just a snorkel. You can get up close to the luminous coral gardens and schools of fish – even the odd reef shark – without having to dive.

We’ve got snorkelling excursions on the go every day. We don’t just go on set days, either – so you can pick which day of the week fits in with your timetable, not ours. And if you fancy a block of days out or want to spread them out while you’re away, we have up to four-day packages, too. All you need to do is sign up, hop on board one of our boats and sail off on a snorkelling adventure. You don’t even have to bring your own gear.

Plus, because we’re one of the Red Sea’s top diving companies, we know the waters like the back of our hand. Which means we’ll take you to the best snorkelling sites around like Ras Mohammed National Park and Tiran Island. Some of the marine life we’ve spotted on our excursions includes dolphins, eagle rays and barracuda. Then there’s the smaller stuff like lionfish, scorpion fish and blue spotted rays. And that’s just for starters.

Weather & Water Temps

The sun shines in the Red Sea 365 days a year with virtually no rain.

Depending on the time of year, the thermometer hovers between 24°C and 39°C and the water temperature is 22°C to 26°C – so diving is great year-round.
