Up to 1 day
Experience the full beauty of the Red Sea on land and sea with a full-day boat trip to Giftun Island from Hurghada. Cruise to this island National Park, and enjoy the day at Mahmya beach, a vision of white sands and turquoise waters. Sunbathe, swim and snorkel from the sands, and join a boat trip to stunning nearby reefs for more snorkeling. Buffet lunch, beach activities, and hotel pickup and drop-off included.
Leave your Hurghada hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the departure marina. Be greeted by the crew, settle aboard the spacious, modern boat, and after a safety briefing, sit back and relax as your captain sets sail for Giftun Island. This untouched Red Sea islet is a National Park, with white sand beaches, crystal waters, and offshore reefs. Watch for dolphins and after roughly an hour, arrive at Mahmya beach on Giftun’s southern shores. Enjoy several hours to relax on the sands, laze under the parasols, and swim and snorkel in the turquoise seas to see the offshore corals. Drinks are available (own expense) from Mahmya’s bars. Come midday, opt to join a snorkeling boat trip to some of the Red Sea’s most beautiful coral gardens. On arrival, dive into the translucent waters and snorkel among colorful reefs teeming with fish. At lunchtime, savor a buffet meal of Egyptian and international dishes, including a kids’ menu, at a beach restaurant. Then, simply lounge on Mahmya’s sands listening to the gentle background music, take more swims and snorkels or enjoy activities such as beach volleyball. When it’s time, cruise back to Hurghada where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off
