Snorkeling in Hurghada

Snorkeling Hurghada 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

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.

Makadi’s clear waters also hold turtles, rays, puffers, barracuda, octopus, and morays.

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.
