If you are there just for snorkeling then you can do it outside of Dai Pescshori in Dahab. Pricey. Too many people around.

I only did snorkeling. Still the colour of the coral reefs and fish is amazing. You can see a lot of these just next to the shore.

I was sick and congested so had trouble equalizing and caught up with the group at 20 meters. I am so glad I did! Ended up being my favorite dive I had all day which my husband seconded.

It took us 3 hours to get there but totally worth it! Best place for snorkeling ever, specially above Blue hole!! It's magical. It was the best experience I've had in my life. I highly recommend it. I wish I took pictures under water though...More

Exceptional experience for sea lover diving or snorkeling, not suitable for first timer as the depth there is around 320 m, you can find a guide to escort you through snorkeling. Overall I loved it.
