I have booked this trip with my wife and son. We had an amazing time! Saw dolphins, colorful fish and even turtles. Captain Bilal was very nice and helpful, especially with Snorkeling instructions. Highly recommended for families!
It was a truly incredible...

It was a truly incredible experience! Our guide joined us for a swim, pointing out the spots where we could observe turtles, and we even had the chance to swim with whale sharks. It was definitely worth the money.
Very poor communication
Leah_H, May 2023
Unfortunately the company I booked this tour through was a no show!! Very shocking and confusing experience - I had no communication with Marmar tours and tried to chat them via the Viator app the morning of my tour but never received a response. I showed up to the marina and was greeted by a guide from another company who offered to call Marmar for me to see when they would arrive - A woman wearing a Marmar t-shirt showed up and talked to the other guide for a few minutes, barely glanced at me, and then walked away. At that point the guide from the other company said that I would be going with his group. While my trip ended up being wonderful, I had no idea what company I was actually going with! No idea if this tour was the same price as what I paid, duration, etc. One difference included food provided (my original tour said they provided sandwiches - the one I ended up going on had chips and cookies only) and who knows what else! I expected better communication and customer service, do not recommend!
Fun, but maybe better to let nature rest
Caine_K, Feb 2023
It was okay, but just to manage expectations: the water can be a bit murky. We have snorkeled in clearer water with more beautiful coral and sealife. There were many turtles though huddled together. Nice to see, but with all the people in the water surrounding them and many people not following some basic rules like refraining from swimming above the turtles…it was a bit of a “so-so” experience. Maybe it’s better to just leave the Ad Daymaniat reserve alone. Nothing related to the tour operator by the way, the explained everything well, are very accommodating and we recommend them!
Super Ausflug
Stephanie_B, Nov 2023
Der Ausflug war sehr gelungen. Wir haben den Startpunkt der Tour problemlos gefunden. Die Tour startete pünktlich und wir waren nur eine kleine Gruppe. Wir sind zwei verschiedene Spots mit dem Boot angefahren und konnten einmal vom Boot aus und einmal vom Strand aus Schnorcheln. Das Schnorcheln war super. Wir haben super viele Schildkröten beobachten können und auch viele andere tolle Fische. Zwischendurch gab es Snacks und Getränke. Eine super Tour und tolle Mitarbeiter.
