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 Snorkeling Report’s team.

Sea turtle Abu Dabbab

This trip combines a 3-day stay on land in Abu Dabbab 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 in Abu Dabbab, 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.

M/V Sea Serpent Excellence

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.

Shallow coral reef Egypt

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.

Spinner dolphins Sataya Reef

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, an offshore reef visited by large pods of spinner dolphins, as well as a dugong tour that gives you the best chance to snorkel with this elusive creature.
