You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and transferred to a boat for the 45-minute ride to the Dolphin habitat. Sit back, relax, and take in the sun along the way. Admire these fascinating and extremely intelligent animals playing in the water while you snorkel along. See normal dolphin behavior in their natural habitat, where they live free and haven’t been trained by humans. If they decide to play with you, it will be of their own free will. This is nature at its best, and you have a 90 per cent chance of meeting up with a dolphin. The area is ideal for snorkeling. See beautiful corals, a multitude of exotic fish, and many other underwater animals and plants. There will be 3 stops at different sites where you can swim and explore the underwater world while snorkeling then spare some time of your vacation in Hurghada to experience the thrill of a banana boat ride on the clear blue waters.

Lunch will be served on the boat, and at the end of the day you’ll be transferred back to your hotel.

We had a great experience with this tour. We were lucky to actually see dolphins (in and out of water) which I didn't believe when I booked the trip! The team was great and made the day entertaining. Everything was enjoyable about this trip. The only thing is that we felt rushed when snorkeling (on free time) even though the boat got back at 3pm (a bit early). I strongly recommend this tour as we had a lot of fun and saw great things!

We were promptly picked up at our hotel lobby and transported with 6 others to the harbor (10 minutes- depending on where your hotel is located). At the harbor the boat had an additional 20 persons to be included on the adventure. After basic rules and timetable we headed out into the beautiful Red Sea. We quickly approached Dolphin House and within 4 minutes we were swimming with wild Dolphins! We were able to do this 3 additional times. We then proceeded to coral reef area where we had plenty of time to admire the coral and beautiful fish. Lunch was prepared buffet style on the boat (all very casual) - food was fine (don't expect great food in Egypt) - but the staff was super friendly and fun. Finally as we approached back to the harbor we had many opportunities to ride the Banana Boat ....super fun and enabled us to bond a bit more with others on the boat. Great deal and fun experience. Bring a little cash to tip at the end.

A fun day from beginning to end. We got to see and swim among a large pod of dolphins. Possibly as many as 20. It's difficult to count them. We were told it is not always the case that the dolphins are seen and even more unusual for them to stick around and play as long as they did.They swam through and beneath the group of us, surfacing within feet of us as if they were checking us out as much as we were checking them out. If this is your thing go for it. You wont be disappointed. The staff were great, friendly and attentive. The food was surprisingly good and, hey, you're in beautifully warm, wonderfully clear Red Sea. A memorable day with the banana boat ride as a little icing on the cake.

Great way to do some snorkeling and see the dolphins. Arranging the pick up at the hotel was communicated very well, no problem at all. Great care was taken by the tour operator handing out drinks and snacks before and after the boat trip. Boat trip itself was very nice with friendly and helpfull staff. It was a fun day!

My husband and I had a really nice time on this trip, the price is amazing for what you are getting. The boat was nice washrooms were okay, the lunch was really good, my husband got to swim/see a few dolphins in the wild, but it is really difficult to get close to dolphins as there are many people in the area trying to spot and swim with dolphins. At the end they sell you a DVD for an additional 30 USD honestly, its not worth it, the pictures and videos are not that great.

It was a fantastic day having fun in an Egyptian party! :- all the crew was making you happy and also see Dolphins was incredible!! They look for them during some hours and I will remember how Max jump into the water while the boat was still moving to record the Dolphins... Finishing the day with the banana and the speed boat was the perfect end!

This was a wonderful day. We all loved the journey on the boat and the chance to snorkel and see dolphins . The day was made even better by the free time when we were able to have a relaxing swim in the Red Sea which was the topped off by rides on the couch and banana. The food on the boat was very good and we really enjoyed the platters of fresh fruit. Our trip was arranged by Ramashka Tours and we cannot speak highly enough of Mr Alex the manager who met us at the end of our trip with a bottles of cold water which was much appreciated. He takes good customer service to a whole new level and on realising we had booked another tour with his company he insisted on driving us back to our hotel in his own car so we would be back faster. I would not hesitate to book tours and excursions with his company again Thank you

This tour was brilliant. We booked via Ahmed at Ramaskha Tours who was a breath of fresh air! Very helpful and not pushy at all. The same can be said about our boat crew. So nice and friendly. They really cared about us having a good time and we did! The food was very good too. Highly recommended :)

We were collected from our hotel in a private car and provided with lots of ice cold bottled water to take on the trip. We had our own snorkels and masks, but they are provided if you do not have your own, along with fins for the trip. The boat was adequate although a little rough around the edges! We were unlucky in that it was a very windy day and the area where the Dolphins are active is not sheltered. This meant that it was not safe for us to enter the water. Disappointing, but no-one can affect the weather. A couple of the strong swimming crew members did do in to help find the Dolphins and sure enough, after a while we saw a pod of Dolphins leaping out of the water near our boat. It was a brief but satisfying view. Then it was on to the first of 2 snorkeling sites. Both were at coral reefs and the experience was really good. Such a variety to see compared with European waters. The food at lunchtime was OK, not great, but OK. There was a photographer on board, taking photos and video during the day available for an optional extra charge and delivered to the hotel later that day or the following day. All in all a lovely day and the cost is quite reasonable so we will probably try again sometime to get in the water with the wild Dolphins. Our trip was arranged by Ramaska Tours on behalf of Viator and I would certainly recommend them for their professionalism and attention to detail.

Wonderful trip. Great guide and excellent service from Ramashka tours. 8 hours of fun with snorkeling among beautiful corals and swimming with dolphins. If you want to go anywhere in or around Hurghada, then you should pick Ramashka tours!

This one-day tour is very good, and if you are lucky you will see and swim with the dolphins. The reef at the second stop after swimming with the dolphin was really great, and more time should have been spent there. We did not like the package tour approach in that we were told to always stick with the group while in the water. This is mainly to give the photographer a chance to take many pictures. The reef on the afternoon stop was somewhat disappointing. The video made of the dolphin swimming and snorkeling is good but far too expensive.

Little confused about dolphin house which suggested a visitvtoo see dolphins instead we met one in the wild which was lovely. Trip was very good although cameraman a little oppressive on board bought the video and photos over 400 all day trip so good value

Dolphins are not guaranteed on every tour, we were unfortunate to not see any at all during our tour. The snorkeling was good, however, and very well-worth it. The only downfall was that everyone on board smokes cigarettes, and if you are not a smoker you cannot escape the smoke. Our lunch that was included did not settle very well and we were sick upon returning to our hotel at the end. The 'banana boat' part of the tour we excluded all together after seeing four banana boats go out on the water and everyone on board was flipped over into the water. Being on the Red Sea was fun and the snorkeling was great, just a few logistics made this a less than ideal rating.
