10 Things to do in Hurghada, Egypt

1.Swim with the dolphins

Even that you can swim with the dolphins in the Red sea to have them in their natural habitat or you swim with them in Dolphins World or interact with them at a photo session just do it!

Yes is so beautiful to see them in the wild, but who knows when you will have the chance to touch them or to feel their power and hear closely their voices!


A.If you want to swim with them in their habitat you can choose a snorkeling trip that includes dolphins (if you are lucky enough to see them, I didn’t).

B. Go at the Dolphins World

They offer a free shuttle from the hotel, you can have a private session of photographs or a private session of swimming.

Snorkeling is great, imagine doing it into the red sea where the coral reefs are amazing! You can see really big fish and different types of coral reefs.

Depending on the period of the year you can do it! For example in December the water is great, but in March is cold.
