We went first on the Catamaran Sailing Tour with the Ocean Diva. It was a great trip, in fact so great that we thought about doing it again within the next days of our trip, but we then decided to try the Flying Dutchman instead.
The trip with the Ocean Diva was fun, well organised and with the nice crew definitely something unforgettable. We took the 5 hour trip from 9 a.m to 2 p.m. We had two stops for snorkelling and even our 6 year old daughter went for it. We saw a lot of fish and even dolphins (even though they told us as they are wild animals they cannot be guaranteed).
After this beeing such a success, we tried the Flying Dutchman (glassbottomboat). It was also fantastic! We saw a turtle and many fish. They feeded them so we could see them very close. It was a speedy ride, which was fun. We had one stop for snorkelling after the boat drove slowly over the reefs. The two crew members were nice and we were in very good hands.

I can highly recommend this trip and a must do when in El Gouna!

The boat, the staff and the snorkelling are first class. They made my 5 year feel very special when firstly they let him pull up the main sail, then they let him sail the boat. He was officially named 3rd Captain!

Sami made a real impact on Leo, even to the fact that we had to go to Moods Bar two days running after the trip so that Leo could wave to him.

The snorkelling was excellent with very good views of the coral and fishes - unfortunately the weather wasn't suited for the Dolphins to be present, but the fish were definatley worth seeing.

All in all best activity of the holiday!

A must do trip if your staying in EL Gouna. Booked a morning trip for snorkeling which was brilliant with free loan of mask and snorkel but not fins, Very entertaining crew with a good knowledge of the great boat and sea. Plenty of cold soft drinks throughout the trip and fresh filled rolls provided for lunch.All run very professionally and safe

Ocean Diva is a very stylish and modern catamaran and thanks to its low draft, it can go to very shallow reefs. I've been on the "standard" snorkeling boats and they all go to the same reefs, sometimes 10 or more boats in one spot. Ocean Diva was very fast, ecological and the private reef was wonderful. On the way back a big school of dolphins came by to play, a lot of baby dolphins. Towels and drinks were provided and I was impressed by the high safety standard of the company: one crew member was following the snorkelers in a dinghy. The captain was from the United States and showed us how to steer this large sailing boat. All in all, a wonderful experience at a fair price.

The ocean diva or in particular "the orange connection" was great, we had a few dive/snorkeling trips planned but this one took the cake ! great people, real friendly, hospitable and european (it was a nice change) great food, lots of drinks and we even had champagne and caviar you really feel like a millionaire :)
the boat was super, built on the same specs as a race catamaran it cuts through the water and with only sails its nice and silent, overall the best way to spend a day on the water they know the best reefs to snorkel and we even seen some dolphins !

keep up the good work guys and thanks !
