Eilat Fun Day Tour
Duration: Half Day
Located at the northern tip of the Red Sea, the cosmopolitan city of Eilat is a busy port and popular tourist resort, offering some of the best activities in the region. This fun-filled excursion will keep the whole family amused as you discover the vibrant marine life at Coral World and Dolphin Reef, followed by shopping along Eilat’s promenade. Swimming with dolphins and an underwater adventure on the Oceanarium are just some of the tour highlights.
The first stop of the day is the Coral World complex, where you can get up close to the colourful sea life of the Red Sea in a variety of different habitats. The underwater Observatory Marine Park and over 40 different aquariums and displays will enable you to observe an incredible diversity of marine creatures in crystal clear turquoise waters, providing visitors with endless surprises and experiences. Watch hundreds of brightly-coloured tropical fish darting in and around the vibrant coral reefs, happily living side by side with herbivores and predators of the ocean.
Another popular attraction is the shark pool, where you can watch these powerful kings of the sea swimming so close to the windows you could almost touch them! All these magical underwater experiences are a great way to appreciate the beauty of the Red Sea safely – without getting wet! Moving on, the turtle and stingray pool will enable you to observe several different species such as Green and Hawksbill turtles, which happily live here with Kurl’s stingrays. The pool is spilt into two for adults and baby turtles born at Coral World. The turtles, sharks and stingrays are fed daily so visitors can watch and take part during the tour depending on the time of day. Last but not least, one of the highlights of the day is a ride on the Oceanarium, an underwater dive simulator that will take you down into the depths of the ocean for an unforgettable undersea adventure.
Our next stop is Dolphin Reef on the shores of the Red Sea, where you can watch bottlenose dolphins swimming and playing in their natural habitat. Visitors can either get up close to these beautiful creatures from the pier or enter the water and enjoy a guided swim or dive. Contact with the dolphins is based on their free will, so you will undoubtedly feel honoured if they approach you. Because dolphins are intelligent, curious and sociable, this is virtually guaranteed!
We round the day off with shopping at the Sea Mall shopping centre and along Eilat promenade, where you can browse hundreds of shops, bazaars and boutiques for gifts and souvenirs – many of which are VAT free! After all that excitement, relax and watch the world go by in one of Eilat’s many bars or cafes overlooking the beach. Ideal for both adults and children, this memorable day of fun and discovery is the perfect addition to your holiday in Egypt.
