A wonderful day on the boat which gives the chance to combine luxury with great snorkelling (lunch & soft drinks are provided). There will be 3 stops where you can snorkel with your guide or without if you are confident enough, here you will have the chance to view some amazing coral reefs and many different types of fish.
We will collect you from the hotel after breakfast, we will then drive approximately 20-30 minutes to the port to meet the boat. You will be returned to your hotel between 3 & 4pm in the afternoon.
Ras Mohammed park marks the transition of the shallow Gulf of Suez , to the deep intercontinental Gulf of Aqaba, a small portion of the Grift Valley that stretches deep into Africa.
Although not massive in size, Ras Mohammed contains an astounding variety of wildlife, including gazelles of the northern desert and brilliant orange coral reefs.
The boundaries of Ras Mohammed extend far out into the surrounding waters, and even the most casual of visitors is struck by how much of the park is dominated by the sea. Even the dry land area of the park seems a part of the marine world: in the north, large dunes are interspersed with outcroppings of Miocene limestone in which are embedded an astonishing wealth and variety of marine fossils. In fact, the dramatic promontory that marks the Sinai’s southernmost tip belongs in part to the sea, as it is in fact an enormous, fossilized coral reef, left high and dry tens of thousands of years ago.
For many visitors, Ras Mohammed’s most stunning scenery is found underwater, in the broad, terraced coral reefs that encircle the peninsula. Fire corals and brilliant sea fans abound here, and among these lush reef corals roams a truly magnificent array of both reef and pelagic fish–over a thousand species in all.
