One of the best sites is the sheltered lagoon of Marsa Shouni Soraya.

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.
