My gf and I were on 3 similiar daytrips, and this one is the best by far! Crew was friendly, and had the trip well organized - I was able to get within 1m of the dolphins, jump from the top of the boat, see the coral reefs, eat a delicious meal and chat and make friends. Definitely try it out.
Very nice experience with a great team

We had a great experience with this tour. We were lucky to actually see dolphins (in &out of water) which I didn't believe when I booked the trip! The team was great and made the day entertaining. Everything was enjoyable about this trip. The only thing is that we felt rushed when snorkeling (on free time) even though the boat got back at 3pm (a bit early). I strongly recommend this tour as we had a lot of fun and saw great things!
Our Dolphin House Experience
, Oct 2019
Dolphins are not guaranteed on every tour, we were unfortunate to not see any at all during our tour. The snorkeling was good, however, and very well-worth it. The only downfall was that everyone on board smokes cigarettes, and if you are not a smoker you cannot escape the smoke. Our lunch that was included did not settle very well and we were sick upon returning to our hotel at the end. The 'banana boat' part of the tour we excluded all together after seeing four banana boats go out on the water and everyone on board was flipped over into the water. Being on the Red Sea was fun and the snorkeling was great, just a few logistics made this a less than ideal rating.
Amazing crew
, Oct 2019
The crew was incredibly friendly and informative, snorkeling did not feel rushed though there were a lot of people from other boats. the food was good , but more would have been better. Hats off to all who made it possible for us to swim with dolphins 3 x. they catered to everyone one, even those who were asleep on the first two rounds! I heard them say they wanted to ensure every one , everyone, swam with the dolphins. I would definitely recommend this trip
Great, fun, thrill!

We were promptly picked up at our hotel lobby and transported with 6 others to the harbor (10 minutes- depending on where your hotel is located). At the harbor the boat had an additional 20 persons to be included on the adventure. After basic rules and timetable we headed out into the beautiful Red Sea. We quickly approached Dolphin House and within 4 minutes we were swimming with wild Dolphins! We were able to do this 3 additional times. We then proceeded to coral reef area where we had plenty of time to admire the coral and beautiful fish. Lunch was prepared buffet style on the boat (all very casual) - food was fine (don't expect great food in Egypt) - but the staff was super friendly and fun. Finally as we approached back to the harbor we had many opportunities to ride the Banana Boat ....super fun and enabled us to bond a bit more with others on the boat. Great deal and fun experience. Bring a little cash to tip at the end.
A Different Way To Spend Your Day

A fun day from beginning to end. We got to see and swim among a large pod of dolphins. Possibly as many as 20. It's difficult to count them. We were told it is not always the case that the dolphins are seen and even more unusual for them to stick around and play as long as they did.They swam through and beneath the group of us, surfacing within feet of us as if they were checking us out as much as we were checking them out. If this is your thing go for it. You wont be disappointed. The staff were great, friendly and attentive. The food was surprisingly good and, hey, you're in beautifully warm, wonderfully clear Red Sea. A memorable day with the banana boat ride as a little icing on the cake.
Pros and Cons
, Jan 2019
Firstly, Great staff, Great boat, Great food, Great price...Secondly, What a disgraceful way to treat dolphins! 8 x boats corralling wild dolphins to be harassed for holiday makers pleasure. People jumping into the water to swim with flipper. Constant noise and the captains repeatedly sounding their horns. far from seeing a wild pod to dolphins swimming freely you may get a glimpse of 3/4 until,they manage to escape the sheer madness that is this part of the trip.Thirdly, health and safety non existent...."Those that can swim...follow me those that can't stay close to the boat" was the briefing. A young italian boy swam to the protected coral reef and broke off a two foot chunk as a memento!Fourthly... The banana boat was great fun and a great end to the disappointing day.Fifth and lastly... Beware the Pikey boat that pulls up and board selling crisps and beer...£2:50 per packet and £3:00 for a small can. Not a happy day all round but now I'm experienced enough not to rebook
