The whole excursion was fantastic and a fab way to spend your day. Starting off with the pickup which was seamless and on the dot at agreed time. We were all assigned a specific boat and traveled to 3 different spots. Plenty of time at each stop to enjoy snorkeling / diving. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful at all times. Lunch was also provided and actually quite nice. After coming back we were also promptly taken back to our hotels. All in all amazing experience that is a bargain for the price and what you get for it. Seeing the fish and reefs was a memorable experience.

Fantastic
Natalia_S, Mar 2024
The whole trip was amazing from start to finish. Well organised and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. A must do in Egypt x
Bucket List Experience for me!
Tina_P, Jan 2024
We had a fantastic day. The trip is so cheap for what you get. We paid an extra $25 and my son and I done our first dive. The instructors were absolutely brilliant (although my ears still haven't popped!). I was panicky, but he totally calmed me and I had a fantastic experience. The boat was clean and lunch was good too. Lots of boats at one time visiting the same places, but that's what happens. White Island was good, but not my favourite part. For the first time, i'm glad I got off to go, but I would probably stay on the boat next time. Overall, an absolutely lovely experience and my 13 year old son loved it too.
Super amazing day out, not to be missed
paul_w, Dec 2023
Very well organised trip from picking up on time, the communication prior to the day regarding the pick up time and transport back to our hotel. The boat was immaculate and food was very fresh and amazing. We had three stops for snorkeling and diving and even though we didn't dive ourselves we watched how attentive they were with the novices. Well done to all the staff and organisers
Wonderful experience

Reliable operator and amazing nature
Andrea_C, Oct 2023
Excellent tour operator, with a client service very reliable! Boats are old yact and so its amazing to lie in the confortable front deck (for example)!
Not what I expected
peterrimmer50, Oct 2023
Not what I was expecting as on the booking it says there will be about 20 people on your boat. What they don't say is there are about 30 to 40 boats leaving at the same time. The snorkeling is short and for me whether it was the wind but the sea was quite choppy and very congested. Couldn't see the white island which is just a sand bank because of the amount of people on it.
Just amazing! Very well...
Dora_N, Sep 2023
Just amazing! Very well worth it compared to the other companies offering the same program for the day.

All stuff on the boat was extremely friendly! The hospitality was beyond expectations. For the first time in my life I tried diving and that was the best experience ever, which I could highly recommend to everyone.

DAY TRIP TO RAS MOHAMED PARK AND WHITE ISLAND
MRSG_R, Aug 2023
Staff on the boat were friendly and helpful. The swimming and snorkeling was Excellent. The food was included but you had to pay $5 dollars each for entry to the park. Wonderful day out to the park and White island.
Most enjoyable day of our holiday
Neil_W, Aug 2023
An excellent value for money trip. Well organized from start to finish. We were on the Gahna Boat and the team on board were first class. Only advice. Take some cash as you'll need some to pay for pictures and any additional diving if you choose to take up the offer. The boat is in near perfect condition and the kitchen and facilities are 100%. A must trip for all.
to undergo only if you want to dive.
Ludovico_O, Jul 2023
The minibus was supposed to pick us up at 8, at 9 it hadn't arrived yet; in our place they had loaded two other people without even checking, we tried to contact the tour operators but they didn't respond (clearly they were asleep...) so we contacted them through Viator and only then were we able to get picked up. The driver was very rude. arrived at the destination things did not improve. all the staff were yelling and treating us like a flock of sheep, i understand their anxiety about losing someone but this was unacceptable. They rushed everything. Plus the boats tied right up to the reef!!!! The white island was full of people. only positive note: the food. If you want to do this tour I advise you not to book this one and look for one with less people and more courteous staff!
Fantastic place
