Delight in an amazing snorkeling adventure to the Hamata Islands from Marsa Alam. Visit around 3 virgin islands and discover the untouched nature of Hamata National Park. Snorkel in the waters around the islands, and see colorful fish and corals.

There is a reason why the islands are also called the Egyptian Maldives. White, fine sandy beaches and crystal clear water – a paradise for snorkelers, wether beginner or advanced.
Discover the beauties of the sea in a breathtaking environment of nature – almost untouched by tourism.
The excursion starts in the early morning with our team picking you up from the reception. The pick-up time depends on the distance from the hotel. Please don’t forget to bring a copy of your passport with you before you start.

Begin your day with pickup at your hotel in Marsa Alam at 5:30 AM, then travel 130 kilometers (nearly 81 miles) south to Hamata Marina with your English-speaking guide. Once there, board your boat at 10:30 AM and set sail on an unforgettable day discovering the unspoiled nature of Hamata National Park. Enjoy snorkeling stops around 3 of the Hamata Islands. Admire the corals and colorful fish you can’t see anywhere else, and soak up pure nature in beautiful lagoons and different reefs around the islands. Dock on one of these tropical islands for a closer look, and watch many different birds as you take a walk along the white sand beach. Get back on the boat at 12:15 PM and tuck into an included lunch. After lunch, set sail again to the last snorkeling site before heading back to the marina in Hamata at 4 PM. From there, sit back and relax on the return transfer back to your hotel in Marsa Alam.
