Marsa Alam Snorkelling Tour - Marsa Shouni Soraya

Spend a day discovering the spectacular natural treasures of the Red Sea during your holiday in Egypt as you snorkel around some of the countries most beautiful dive sites. This tour will take you to Marsa Shouni Soraya near Marsa Alam, one of the best diving destinations in the world, where you will discover pristine coral reefs and a huge variety of marine species. This is an unforgettable adventure for the whole family to enjoy.

Once a small fishing village, Marsa Alam has seen a splurge of development in recent years and now attracts diving enthusiasts and holiday makers from all over the globe, who come here to relax on beautiful beaches and explore the Red Sea’s breathtaking undersea world. This popular resort is home to around 20 different dive sites along the coast, some of which are amongst the most spectacular in the southern Red Sea, and new dive sites are being discovered here all the time.

One of the best sites is the sheltered lagoon of Marsa Shouni Soraya. Otherwise known as the "Small Bay of the Market", Marsa Shouni Soraya offers a variety of diving experiences for both new and experienced divers. It is also a great place for snorkelers to explore because the waters are shallow. The bay has an unusual and distinctive shape and the underwater seascapes are spectacular. One of the highlights of this trip is the vast array of sea life you will find here.

The warm, crystal clear waters of the Red Sea occupy part of the Great Rift Valley and are famous for hosting an incredibly diversity of sea life. The vibrant coral reefs are teeming with brightly-coloured tropical fish of all shapes and sizes, including clown fish, butterfly fish, angel fish and scorpion fish, as well as barracuda, Napoleon wrasse, moray eels, shrimps and hundreds of eagle rays.

You are also like to spot hawksbill turtles, which are frequent visitors to Marsa Shouni Soraya, and even the occasional whale shark and dolphin if you are lucky. The beauty and diversity of this spectacular natural aquarium will amaze and delight you.

Snorkeling equipment will be provided on the trip, and you will be escorted by experienced guides at all times. If you are a beginner, courses are also available beforehand to help you feel more confident in the water.
