I had actually looked to book the trip to Ras Mohamed which was more expensive but my tour rep told me that this trip was better. I'm going to get my one gripe out of the way now. I've done quite a number of boat tours where food was included this was the poorest by far the chicken goujons/strips were dry and hard and it just felt like there was not enough of everything to go round. Apart from that this was a great day out. Without doubt this was the nicest boat I've ever been on - great wet area down stairs set up for both snorkelers and divers alike. The salon where the food was served and the upper deck were comfortable and clean. The best part about the boat’s facilities was that the toilets had toilet paper and running water. There was a constant supply of cold drinks which you just helped yourself to out of the cooler.
We stopped three times at three different reefs and I have to say because so many people have been here over the years the reef comes across as very jaded by comparison to the one at the end of the jetty at our hotel. My mask didn't fit well so I kept stopping on the first swim and Ramy who was leading our group was very sweet and lent me his and pulled me along to catch up with the rest of the group. The guys who led the groups were amazing they were extremely knowledgeable and really customer focused helping those who were not strong swimmers and really trying to push you to try. I was tired after the first swim so for the second two reefs I just took a mask and swam close to the boat. On the way back to port they spotted a school of dolphins and while I was a little disturbed by all the boats in the area chasing down and beeping their horns at the dolphins I was assured that the dolphins loved it and they thought they were just playing with them. It was the most beautiful sight of the whole trip watching them jumping and skimming across the water.
