Really good environment for the dolphins, they get to choose if they want to come to the divers. They can go to a separate part of the bay where there are no boats or divers allowed. We didn’t see any divers but still the dive...More

Fantastic trip. Boat was clean. Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Food and drinks included and the food was good. Swam amongst 20 dolphins for an hour. I would definitely recommend this trip. We booked with our dive school at Sentido Oriental Dream Hotel.

This was a day trip out of Marsa Alam with Emperor Divers--highly recommended. The first half of the dive we saw a couple of dolphins and lots of other interesting stuff. The last 20-25 minutes a pod of all sizes came into the "cut". They...More

Amazing trip to swim with dolphins in their natural environment. Well worth the 2 hour drive then 2.5 hour boat ride.

First time ever being in any sea, and I choose the Red Sea and what a choice. You will see dolphins here! I'm not even a beginner diver, but I am always one to experience things and this place is just stunning.

Incredible sights to behold, of course the main reason to go is for the dolphins however I understand that they know when the boats are going to be there and avoid the humans, which is fair enough.

The reef is very beautiful, many small fishies. But unfortunately no dolphins... While snorkeling you have to wear a life jacket and you also must leave the reef at 3 pm. We went there on 19th July and there were no dolphins until 3 pm....More

I'm not an agent or an operator. You'll find the hotel or their diving centre you are staying at in perfect order to take your booking. Allow yourself two days between your actual booking and trip. Have fun and enjoy!

About £50 including lunch. Worth every penny if Dolphins are there. More chance of seeing them at that reef. Exciting day out. Spinner dolphins that jump out of water and spin. Sometimes you can get fifty more more show up.
