Abu Galum & Blue hole snorkeling trip

About the area

Abu Galum is one of south Sinai’s best-kept secrets and is considered among the most picturesque protected areas in Egypt. Its spectacular granite mountains ending abruptly on a narrow coastal plain, fronted by rich coral reefs makes it a perfect snorkeling spot. Abu Gallum reserve houses 167 plant species, 44 of which are seen only in this area.

Abu Galum Safari Excursion reviews

The most unusual adventure trip was to the Blue Hole. We had 2 jeeps which raced each other on a desert safari, a little white knuckle. A bedouin tea stop. Then to the camels for 1/2 hour to take us to the Blue Hole seaside. A little uncomfortable. Into the sea with our guide, snorkelling off the rocks. We swam over 500 m cliffs of coral, round the bend, and over coral onto the Blue Hole. Quite spectacular - I'd recommend fins unless a good swimmer. In November the sea temperature was still warm enough not to have to wear a shortie or vest, but you'd be more comfortable if you have one on the whole. Back at 6 pm, so a long day as we were picked up at 7.15.

This tour was awesome! We stopped at a cafe for toilet and food/drinks. We went to the "colored canyon" which I just saw rocks that looked reddish only. Then we went on a camel ride to the Blue Hole where we went snorkeling. We then stopped at some shops that had a perfume shop. The area was really pretty! The kids and guys in charge of the camels would NOT leave you alone for tips (like everywhere in Egypt). The food that was included with the tour at the Blue Hole was delicious! It was a great tour! It was also one of the cheaper tour companies for this specific tour!
