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.

What is the best time for snorkelling in Hurghada?

Snorkelling in Hurghada is a year-round activity in Egypt. The main seasonal change is in water temperature, which can drop to 21 Celsius during winter and rise to 30 Celsius in the summer. As a snorkeler, you’ll mostly be in the sun-warmed surface layer of the ocean. If you’re worried about getting cold, it’s wise to pack a wetsuit for your vacation. You can easily buy or rent one in Egypt, and it’s less cumbersome than bringing your own.

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.
