Go if you want a very long 8-hour day on the water, not for the fish
Sitabai, Nov 2023
The boat ride out to the snorkeling area is perhaps 90 minutes, which is a really long time, and 90 minutes back (plus travel between sites). When you get there, all the boats are moored together around a small spot where there are fish. I'd say this boat tour is really more catering to people wanting the learning first-time shallow diving experience, and snorkelers are just along for the paid ride. Snorkelers get in the water but have to stay with a snorkel master so that you don't get lost and then can't find your own boat again. And the sea was rough! The snorkel master had a float ring that a bunch of people hung onto, so just imagine all the flailing arms and legs. I finally let go and swam free, keeping an eye on them. Meanwhile, the boat's main efforts were on the divers, who were all brand new, as well, and needed tons of assistance. Then we went to site #2 and site #3, and it really kept getting worse. Don't sign up because you want to see spectacular fish.....there were a few, but you'd need to know how to snorkel already and feel very safe in this rough water to see them. I have snorkeling experience so I saw stuff, but I'm not sure of the other few snorkelers. Go on this trip if you want a really, really long day out on the water with very loud music, don't go for viewing the fish. The scenery is pretty.
The boat is quite old and...

The boat is quite old and needs repairing inside. Quite small also comparing to other fancy boats there. At first there was a long waiting time before they took off to sea. More than 2 hours. The crew smoked non-stoped. :( And stop to White Island was very short 30minutes. But they took where promised so...
Best team! Amazing day!
Yasmine_D, May 2023
Amazing day with an amazing team! Ibrahim and all the crew were soooo nice and professional! We didn’t think we would be spending such a beautiful day but it was actually the best decision we took! The boat is very clean and spacious, not too crowded, lunch was delicious. But most of all, the visit of Ras Mohammed and White Island was a dream! Thank you for the best excursion ever!
Exceptional trip. Really well organised.

Amazing experience
Samina_S, Feb 2023
We had amazing time with the tour guys. They have been extremely cautious and caring. They followed all the safety measures for snorkeling and scuba diving. The snorkeling experience was nice. Trip to white island was very enjoyable. The island itself is beautiful. We both have thoroughly enjoyed the whole day trip.
Excellent tour for good fee
Krisztian_K, Jan 2023
Good communication, rapid response. The tour description matched that was delivered. The food was ok. The boat was great.
Nice but could be better
Arianna_B, Dec 2022
It was a nice day, the company and food were nice. White Island very crowded and not worthy, about 20 boats around the little “island” and 100 people on it. Ras Mohammed was nice, but not so different from the reef in front of the hotel where I was staying. Corals mostly white. I reported to the crew that something bit me while swimming and they said it was impossible. That evening I had bather rash all over my arms and one leg. The bus driver was very kind, but it took about 1h to collect all the passengers from their hotels.
Not worth it
Hernando_Q, Dec 2022
Snorkeling area was small, overcrowded with more than 25 boats in the same are, not allowed to swim on your own, the only thing that was good was the different types of fis
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Hernando, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We're so sorry that you felt disappointed with a few points but let us please take the chance to clear it more. 1- Regarding the overcrowded boats, it's because the restrictions of the tourism and protected area which gives only few spots for snorkelling and it's forced by the tourism police and if there's a diving centre which doesn't follow the instructions, the licence will be taken. We're trying our best to negotiate all possible way so we can offer a better experience for our guests. 2- Regarding the swimming on your own prevention it's due to the safety reasons, it used to be free over the last few years but with some repeated accident on the shores of the Red Sea, it had to be set restriction which all centres must follow. Once again, We're so sorry if you didn't enjoy your experience as you wished and promise to do our best in the future to make the experience better. Kind regards, Sasa Sharm Wonders Team

Read the fine print before you book. This is not the trip you think it is.
margaret_D, Apr 2022
This trip was supposed to include a snorkeling stop, the white island and Ras Mohammed. We never made it to RA’s Mohammed. Instead we stopped at a fairly small coral reef where we were originally told we would stop for 40 minutes. Then the operator tried to force as many people as possible to try scuba diving (for an additional price) and we wound up staying at the reef for two hours. We got to the White Island about 20 minutes before high tide obliterated it. I do not recommend this trip unless you truly just want to chill out for 8 hours. But it’s really not what it’s advertised to be.

Cheap and overcrowded tour
kylee_b, Nov 2021
No covid measures in place - picked up 45 mins late by a rude unapologetic non English speaking driver who crammed 16 people in to a 14 seater poorly air conditioned bus - hearses like cattle at the jetty with hundreds of people doing the same - White Island was very small and overcrowded with so many boats it was like an over crowded bus station - the divers and men on board for our safety were great though and happy to help - the snorkelling and diving stops in less crowded spots were however great

quite good but far from great
Odarka_B, Apr 2021
The trip is really nice. But organization of the process! In the bus transfer to the Port were too much people. Why you couldn't mention that tourists especially with babies will have some luggage? So it will be no chance to "pack" inside more people. Also lunch on the boat was so poor. Nevertheless team was great and coral is wonderful.

This is a around 9 hours trip stopping for 1 diving and for the white island 2nd stop.Make sure to have water proof phone bags or camera as there are around 50 m of swimming to reach the island.
