Nice guys take care of everything
The guys are so nice and helpful, it is our first time snorkeling and they take care of everything. The only thing I can criticize on is the food is so so, while it is reasonable for the price.

Tiran Island, one of the best diving sites in Red Sea. No trip to Sharm el Sheikh would be complete without seeing the underwater world of it! I made 2 dives this time and I was really enjoy it! Beautiful Corals and colorful fishes are amazing! And big Thanks to the crew! They made my day! The boat Sophia is pretty new and clean. The crew staffs are so friendly and helpful! The underwater cameraman took some nice photos and video of me. It costs me 20USD and total worth it!!!

Tiran Island Snorkeling Sea Trip with Lunch & Transfer - Sharm El Sheikh
The best day out. The bus picked us up promptly at the agreed time and location. We were taken to the port to collect our snorkles and ife jackets. The boat was really clean and big, plenty of seating areas inside and out. The team stopped twice to snorkle or dive. The guide took us into the water and guided us around so you dont have to be a confident swimmer in the sea to enjoy. The food provided was freshly cooked on the boat and was deliscious. There was a photographer on the boat who took around 50 photos of us and we paid £15.00 for the digital copies. For the price of the day we were blown away it was absoluytely amazing. The snorkeling was one of the best experiences i have had.

Amazing coral

Excursion to Tiran Island by boat
The coral reef was amazing. Lots of colorful fishes..Felt like too short in the water. I wish I could live there! All staff were nice and tried to show us wonderful things. Unfortunely, we didn’t go to near the wreck ship. I had some issues while I was doing this tour. but the company took care of them. You should know you will spend several hours in the bus and on the boat. You can snorkleling only for 1 hour. If you are lucky it could be 90mins?

When to Get There

A substantial island and never crowded, Tiran Island welcomes visitors year-round. Many find the heat of the Egyptian summer (roughly June, July, and August) too much, particularly during the middle of the day, while waters and ambient temperatures can be a little cool for snorkeling in January, February, and March.
