    Red Sea

    Diving was the next trip we took, also with the local agency.
    We went from marina in Waves Hotel, after we had been supplied with snorkling equipment. This was the wonderful experiance. The Red sea is so beautiful, so warm, so clean and full of colorful fish and reefs. We stopped a few times and had a swim in the beautiful water, we took pictures with disposable camera which you can find for about 50 pounds in hurghada, and we also stopped by the beautiful island across hurghada to spend some time in the white sandy beaches and enjoy in crystal clear water.
    Staff on the boat was great, we also had lunch there they prepared from fresh caught fish.
    This is the excursion I recommend to everyone, it's too bad we went snorkling just a day before going to Cairo, if it wasn't like that, we would go for this several times during our holiday.
    Just beware of the sun, because it is very strong, especially when you're in the water and can't feel it right.

    The colours you can see here are unforgettable. Fishes and corals have all shades of the colours. You can fishes not bigger than a nail, but there are fishes longer then you are. Our captain caught one just to let us take a photo and returned it back into the water. It colours looks more beautiful in sunlight.
    Snorkling or diving, your choice.

    Dive Boats head out on a Chilly Hurghada day...

    Obviously, with its beach front setting on the Red Sea, Hurghada has many opportunities for snorkelling and diving.

    I passed on it here because (1) my time as short, (2) I was diving later in Sharm, and (3) it was pretty cold and windy the day or two that I was there.

    That said, I saw quite a few people splashing around in the bay snorkeling with nary a wet suit.

    They must have been from Siberia or some other arctic clime. (Hardier souls that I am...)

    Moray Eel swimming

    Well, there is some VERY colourful snorkelling and diving to be had here! The reefs are more colourful than the Maldives as the corals are still alive! The Maldives corals died thanks to El Nino a few years ago.

    Take a snorkel and mask and you will be amazed! The house reef at the Le Meridiene Makadi Bay, was quite good actually, surprisin as it was a big hotel and there were lots of kids messing around etc. But I saw many things including a Giant Moray Eel! That was a beast over 2 meters long! You can see it swimming here!

    Go somehow underwater. Snorkeling, diving, by boat, however. You can rent equipment or book trips almost everywhere.

    What you see there are beautiful fish in all colors and shapes, coral reefs (take care: don't touch or stand on it!)

    Snorkling in deep sea

    A day at sea

    For a reasonable price, you can go with a boat that leaves from a diving center to a place where experienced divers can dive, and others can scubadive
