A Red Sea snorkeling safari in some of Egypt’s most pristine reefs in a search for sea turtles, dolphins and dugongs encounters.

Take part in some of the best snorkeling in the world by joining our exclusive safari. This memorable experience will combine a liveaboard along with shore snorkeling in some of the Red Sea’s most pristine reefs. You will enjoy an adventure-filled program, spending much of your time snorkeling coral reefs teeming with fish life. You will also visit special locations that offer excellent chances of encounters with sea turtles, spinner dolphins and dugongs. This spectacular trip is led by local snorkeling guides and Planet Snorkeling’s team.

This trip combines a 3-day stay on land and a 7-day liveaboard to the Fury Shoals. The Fury Shoals are a series of pristine reefs along the Southwest Red Sea coast, making the most of your adventure. At the resort, you will enjoy one of Egypt’s most vibrant house reefs, while the cruise will take us to some of the region’s most remote and pristine snorkeling locations.

For this trip, we chartered the Motor Yacht Sea Serpent Excellence, a 5-star Luxury boat that caters to up to 24 snorkelers. With a spacious salon, shaded deck and sun deck on top, there is more than enough space to socialize, relax and enjoy the liveaboard. Each cabin has en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning.

Enjoy a unique trip exclusively tailored to snorkelers! Our trip will include a minimum of 16 different snorkeling locations that will give you ample opportunity to spot all the unique Red Sea marine life. The itinerary has been designed to offer the best experience to snorkelers, and most of the visited locations will be shallow coral plateaux and drop-offs where reef life thrives.

On this Egypt Liveaboard, you will discover some of the most unique marine biodiversity on the planet! Red Sea coral reefs are the habitat for more than 200 fish species, as well as hundreds of types of corals, sponges, and sea fans. In addition to reef snorkeling with awesome visibility, this trip will feature a shore location popular with sea turtles and offshore reefs visited by large pods of spinner dolphins

"Every moment on (and off) board was thoroughly enjoyed. Snorkeling offers a very natural, direct encounter with the underwater world, and it feels quite magical, especially when swimming with dolphins or a sea turtle. Coupled with being gently rocked on a comfy boat for six days, away from civilization, surrounded by like-minded people, and stargazing at night, it was the most relaxing and recharging holiday I've ever spent."
~Jennifer (Germany)
"This trip to some of the best reefs in southern Egypt, if not the best, fulfilled my expectations: an exceptional house reef, vibrant and diverse offshore snorkeling locations, a great team always available, and a friendly group of enthusiasts! If there is a trip to choose to discover Egyptian reefs and their marine life, it's definitely this one!"
~Chakib, Paris (France)
"The concept of a liveaboard dedicated to snorkelers with suitable sites is in itself exceptional. The organizers not only prepare the trip with the local guides, but they also participate and ensure that the trip runs smoothly and adjust the cruise while it is ongoing. We had a wonderful time underwater with a lot of freedom, but also on board with a cheerful atmosphere, all while keeping safety in the background. I will be back."
~Philippe, Toulouse (France)
"The Egypt Liveaboard delivered incredibly consistent and simply fabulous snorkeling opportunities around vibrant healthy reefs hosting huge numbers and varieties of fish as well as the chance to swim with sea turtles and dolphins. As if all that wasn't enough.... the boat, her crew, and our guides were also very consistent: consistently excellent! It was our first liveaboard but on the basis of this very special experience, it definitely will not be our last!"
~Victoria & Andrew, Bucharest (Romania)
