Swimming with Dolphins
Updated: Aug 23, 2018
One of the questions we get asked a lot is about booking trips. We've added this section to give you an idea of some of the trips available and how to book them safely.
We booked our trip through Nabq Tours a company we fully trust in organising our day and who providing an excellent service. Elvis & his girlfriend Sarah, will organise your day for you leaving you to enjoy all the fun without having to worry about anything. Elvis speaks excellent English and you can contact him prior to your holiday to ensure that everything is organised before you leave your home.
Swimming with Dolphins is one of the most popular trips in Hurghada, there aren't many countries with short haul flights that can provide you with this experience. Hurghada provides an opportunity to be taken directly to an area (the Dolphin House) where you are highly likely to see dolphins and get the opportunity to be very close to them. Be warned though, if you try to touch them, they will swim away and you will ruin the experience for others. The trip offers plenty of opportunity for you to be in the sea right next to the dolphins so take your underwater cameras to capture a truly amazing experience. The video above was taken during our stay in November 2016. We have been on this trip 5 times and always seen and been in the water with dolphins. If the weather is bad and the sea is too choppy for the trip to take place, it will be postponed. This is rare, so don't worry.
If you don't want to get in the water, you can sunbathe on the boat or if you are nervous of being in the water, a team member is with you for every stop and will support you during the swim Just let them know if you are feeling nervous. You will be asked at the start of the trip if you are a good swimmer, for those of you who aren't or those with children, just let the team know and they will ensure that your needs are accommodated. We can't speak highly enough of the staff on board the boat, the certainly go the extra mile to provide an excellent service.
Pick up from hotel - It's an early start for this one, so be prepared for a half 7 pick up from your hotel. This gives you time to have some breakfast before you leave.
Transport to boat is approx. 20 minutes.
Board the boat and set sail.
Arrive at the Dolphin House, it's not a house, its an area of the Red Sea where the dolphins congregate. The boat will stop in several locations, following where the dolphins are swimming. You'll get plenty of chances to have a swim with them.
Stop offs for snorkelling are included in this area, the coral reefs are amazing.
Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the trip.
A hot meal is provided.
On the return journey there will be a stop off for sofa bed ride or banana boat rides.
Return to shore late afternoon and you transport will be waiting for you to return you to your hotel.
Don't get confused by trip organisers offering VIP trips and charging more for it. We've been on both and they are no different. On average you will pay £25 per person for this trip but prices will vary if you are booking multiple trips and the number of people you are booking for, so its best to decide how many you want to do and book a package rather than book all trips independently. Group discounts are usually available so gather your friends and family for a lovely day out :) Prices correct for April 2018.
You will need to take your own towels on the trip.
Remember to take your snorkelling equipment.
Life jackets are available at no extra cost.
If you are taking children, you may want to take some snacks.
Take some small change, you may want to tip the staff on the boat for the excellent service they provide.
