Went out on a big boat, full mainly of snorkellers; the trip was organised by Monkey Divers, at Marsa Alalm. We had one drift dive ( dropped from the boat immediately prior to arrival) and then another dive afterwardss. We didn't see any dolphons, nor did any of the snorkellers. There was a pleasant cave to explore in the coral on the second dive, and the underwater life was very pretty.

Strongly advise against coming here. I booked a day trip expecting to see dolphins. Spent 9am to 4pm on the water and didn’t see a single dolphin. My tour company scammed me into coming back the next day on a private speed boat and again, not a single dolphin. Do not come here. If you still decide to come here and don’t see any dolphins, don’t make the same mistake that I did and book a second day. I’m not sure that there are any dolphins in this place. It may be a scam. You’re potentially better off going to Sataya to see dolphins or not coming to Marsa Alam at all. There are many destinations on the Red Sea that are much easier to get to that don’t make fantastical claims about seeing rare animals.

That place is extraordinary, a magical and wonderful place, what is the most beautiful of Egypt. An excellent place for a family visit and to enjoy a very, very good time. I recommend visiting Morsi Alam to everyone who loves comfort, beauty and the magic of nature

One of the best spots in marsa Alam for snorkeling and diving.. the sea, the dolphins and the atmosphere are all perfect, pick the right sunny day and make sure there won't be much wind that day.

We met tens of dolphins at snorkeling. Dive is also really nice there, great also for beginners and kids. Shallow canyons in coral reef gives you beautiful scenery .

This place is seriously a tourist trap. I wish we did our research before going. You basically have a 1% chance of seeing dolphins here. One, they barely come here, and if they do they don't stay long. Two, the protected area where they actually go is fenced off with red buoys, where boats, scuba divers and snorkelers are not allowed to go. Unfortunately most tour operators and scuba diving centers will tell you you can see and dive with dolphins there, then later on pretend that you were unlucky they aren't there. After talking to some locals and seeing other reviews, we found out the truth. The scuba diving center that used this tactic on us was Awlad Baraka at Tondoba beach. We paid 60Euros additional fees go to there, after they showed us photos of groups of dolphins with false promises.

It's a great trip, you take shio that includes lunch as well as diving equipment.. not recommended for sea sikkers though as it is an open water.. so the ship rumbels alot..

However Diving in the coral reefs is great, if your lucky you might see some dolphin's swimming next to you..
