Snorkeling in Hurghada
Hurghada Snorkelling in the Red Sea gives the visitor many underwater sites. Hurghada snorkelling offers many reef sites, both near and far from shore, from little islands to submerged pinnacles. Once a tiny fishing village, Hurghada has transformed into a bustling tourist metropolis with huge beachside hotels and an even more enormous roster of potential excursions.
Marine Life in Hurghada
As some of you probably know, the Red Sea offers a variety of corals. The Red Sea includes over 5% of the world’s coral reefs. There’s more coral to observe for scuba divers, but snorkelers can enjoy portions near the shore. The same goes for fish species. There are a good amount of schools of fish in the shallow areas of the ocean. Some popular fish within the Red Sea are barracuda, goatfish, mackerel, surgeonfish, tuna, angelfish, butterflyfish, clownfish, triggerfish, parrotfish and, of course, the lovely turtles.
A snorkel trip to Hurghada puts you face to face with the Red Sea Riviera’s extraordinary marine life in almost impossibly clear waters. Egypt snorkel spots are world-famous for visibility, reaching up to 70 meters in some places. The country’s sea coast and islands differ dramatically from its underwater landscape, which explodes in diversity and abundance of colourful creatures and topography. The Hurghada reefs are typically shallow and sloping, making them suitable for beginner snorkelers. All a snorkeler’s favourite reef inhabitants can be found in Hurghada waters – parrotfish, surgeonfish, butterflyfish, anemonefish, pufferfish, sweetlips, colourful wrasses, morays, stingrays, and turtles. As a bonus, seeing dolphins on Hurghada boat trips between the shore and your snorkel sites is common.
Best Snorkel Sites in Hurghada
Giftun Islands, with Paradise Beach and Orange Bay, especially Mahmya Beach, is one of the most-visited snorkel sites in Hurghada. This sea island lies a 45-minute boat ride from the Egyptian coast. The clear waters around Giftun hold multiple reefs for snorkelling, where calm conditions and easy access allow everyone to enjoy the plentiful fish and colourful corals with dolphin-frequented. Sunbathing on the beach makes a very engaging complementary activity for many visitors.
A snorkel excursion in Hurghada may also include Abu Ramada Island and the Magawish Islands, where divers and snorkelers can find morays, nudibranchs, rays, barracudas and turtles. There are multiple reefs to visit, some areas with excellent coral and a chance at notable sightings like Napoleon Wrasse.
Hurghada Nearby Snorkelling Sites
Along the coastline south of Hurghada City are the bays which offer the best snorkelling in Hurghada’s mainland area. Makadi Bay is the snorkel site of these bays in that you can reach from Hurghada, most renowned for its coral reefs. In Makadi, you will find the pink, purple, and blue stubby branching corals (Pocillopora sp.), which typify healthy reefs of the area, along with massive corals and swaying soft corals, all decorated with a rainbow of flittering reef fish. Makadi’s clear waters also hold turtles, rays, puffers, barracuda, octopus, and morays.
Soma Bay is another area with comprehensive offerings for snorkelers; the colourful corals in Soma also host the full range of fish life, including gatherings of Raccoon Butterflyfish with their black eye patches, Blue-spotted Stingrays, sweetlips, and multi-patterned wrasses. Just offshore, Soma Bay also holds a couple of coral pinnacles that divers and snorkelers can enjoy.
Sahl Hasheesh Bay has a lagoon filled with reef creatures and coral, including lionfish and octopus. Tours to this area often include dolphin-watching – and may even give you a chance to safely and cautiously jump in the water with these fantastic animals.
Best Time to Snorkel in Hurghada
Hurghada snorkelling can be enjoyed year-round. In Egypt, the primary seasonal variation concerns water temperature, which can cool to 21 Celsius in the winter and heat to 30 Celsius in the summer. However, as a snorkeler, you will always be in the ocean’s surface layer, which is the most warmed by the sun. If you are concerned about getting cold, consider bringing a wetsuit along on vacation. Buying or renting a wetsuit in Egypt is straightforward and much less bulky.
Some recommend avoiding the hottest time of year in July and August. If you do not like to sweat or are prone to heat exhaustion, May and June during Springtime or September through November during Autumn are the best seasons to visit.
