Dive deeper into Egypt – literally! The pyramids get all the attention, but there’s more to Egypt than what’s on land. Head underwater on this snorkel tour and explore the flipside of Egypt: coral reefs, diverse marine life, and the sea!
Egypt might have some of the most famous on-land sights, but did you know that there’s so much to see below its waters as well? Strap on your snorkel for this Egypt tour full of underwater exploration with a snorkel guide at Ras Mohamed National Park.
This snorkel tour from Dahab takes you to one of the most naturally stunning parts of these ancient lands and seas, and gives you the chance to snorkel among some of the best marine wildlife in Egypt.
To kick off this Egypt tour, we’ll pick you up from your hotel in Dahab at 8am and drive out to Ras Mohamed National Park, which is about 1.5 hours outside of Dahab. Once we reach the park, we’ll descend to the coast and set up camp in one of the designated beach huts. Whilst enjoying some refreshments here, your snorkel guide will give you a briefing on the surrounding area and what to look out for in the water (hint: there’s a lot!).
Once you’ve had your introduction, it’ll be time to get out into the water. This is a guided snorkel session, so your guide will be with you in the water, pointing out the best parts of the area to spot some awesome marine wildlife. You’re free to spend as much time in the water as you like, and can come and go from water to our camp on the shore as much as you please.
We’ll take a break for lunch, which will be cooked on location and served up in the beach hut camp. Once you’ve refueled, your next stop on this nature tour in Egypt will take you deeper into the National Park, as we head out to visit the mangroves and an observation point. Here your local guide will explain the region’s unique ecosystem, and you’ll all about life out here in Ras Mohamed National Park.
Just in case you didn’t get your snorkel fix the first time round, we’ll also have plenty of time in the afternoon for you to get back in the water and continue exploring. We’ll be at a different site for this afternoon snorkel, so you may well find some new marine life to admire. Alternatively, you can just relax on the beach and soak up your tranquil surroundings.
As this Egypt snorkel tour comes to a close, we’ll pack up our things and head back towards Dahab, arriving back at your hotel around 6pm.
