Travel to a central location in Hurghada for an 8:30am departure, then board a boat for the trip to Abu Ramada reef, which is located a few kilometers east of the resort city, near the Giftun Islands.
Get fitted with snorkeling equipment, then slip into the water to snorkel the Abu Ramada reef, the first stop of the day. The coral of the Abu Ramada reef is in relatively shallow water, which makes it the perfect place to see (and photograph) fish, with plenty of sunlight to illuminate bright colors and details. Look for parrotfish, yellow butterflyfish, and cornetfish, and swim past giant coral fans that sway in the gentle current.
You’ll get to enjoy the water at your own pace, and whenever you’re ready to head back to the boat, lunch and soft drinks will be waiting on deck. Take a second snorkel at the nearby Peter Reef, which is known locally for a wide variety of colorful fish. At the end of the day, return to the boat for the return trip to Hurghada, where this tour concludes.
