We booked this directly via the lovely man who stands outside the Sindbad Club Hotel for a couple of hours in the evening. He gave us a much cheaper price than direct with thomas cook, plus he reserved us "VIP" seats which are the ones next to the drivers of the submarine, meaning my boys got their own window and the drivers window. The museum you wander through prior to boarding is run down and some of the seating is loose in the ground, so be careful taking a seat! Overall, my sons 5 and 10 loved it. Was a little boring for the adults and you only get to see the fish on either the way out or return, not both since they follow the diver. Definitely worth a trip. Just price it up with different people. The reps are defiantly more expensive!

While on holiday in Hurghada, we took a family day trip to the Sindbad Submarine. It was a glorious day had by all with a museam to look around at while waiting for the shuttle to the submarine. Once in the submarine the captain's were very friendly talking to everyone who was on the trip, inviting us to sit in the cockpit, having a chat and taking pictures with them. There was also a diver present attracting the fish close to the submarine allowing you to get a better view of them. This was an amazing experience, one of which i would do again if had the chance!

We book this trip during our stay in Hurghada. We booked through a holiday rep and got a very reasonable price.
The pick up was on time and not far for us at all. Which is always nice.
The staff at the boarding location were polite friendly and very welcoming.
We then set off on the boat to the submarine meeting point.
The boat was lovely steady and all staff were very friendly and spoke a multiple of languages.
After about 30mins we arrived and were safely transferred from boat to the mid sea dock and down onto the submarine. All staff again very helpful and nice.
From this point we took our seat.
A 30min submarine tour then followed going into the red sea bottom to explore a small section of reef teeming with all kinds of sea life.
I believe some of the "artefacts" were places for effect but all in all a good experience.
The diver that accompanied to feed fish and draw them out alittle gave a good show and the captain/driver of the sub was very polite offering a unique experience to sit up front and see.
Over all a good short trip and unique in its experience. Well worth while for those who love the sea life but not diving.
