Enjoy a blissful day of snorkeling and sunbathing on this full-day boat trip from Hurghada. Board a comfortable boat and sail to beautiful Giftun Island National Park, a cluster of sandy islands basking in the Red Sea. Lounge on the white sands, swim in the turquoise waters, or don the provided snorkeling equipment to witness the spectacular undersea life of exotic fish and corals. Later, sail around the islands to another snorkeling site and then finish with a delicious lunch and more free time to laze on the idyllic beaches.
Leave your Hurghada hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the port. Then, step aboard your boat and set out on your day trip.
Find a spot on deck, and soak in the views of the Red Sea coast as your boat cruises to Giftun Island National Park: a trio of sandy islets also known as the Mahmaya Islands.
After roughly 45 minutes on the water, arrive at Giftun Island and enjoy free time to laze on the white sands and snorkel in the translucent sea.
If you wish to snorkel, listen to a safety briefing, don one of the supplied face masks and snorkels, and wade into the crystal waters to explore. The waters are home to abundant marine life, from exotic fish to rays and rainbow-colored corals.
After time to relax on the sands and in the water, return to the boat and sail around the three islands. Stop for another hour of snorkeling and then return to Giftun Island for lunch at one of the island’s restaurants.
Afterward, enjoy further free time to sunbathe, swim or snorkel before stepping back on to your boat and cruising back to the mainland.
Your trip then ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
