Marsa Mubarak is affectionately known as Turtle Bay. It's within very comfortable sailing distance from Port Ghalib in the Marsa Alam region. The current is mild and will please snorkelers and less-experienced divers. The underwater visibility is excellent. The corals are rich in variety, with...More

Don't expect to see the dugongs there is little or no grass for them to feed on. The tourist boats come in their droves so no peace for the turtles. Good reef for snorkelling

An average dive site, in my assessment. The main attraction are the dugongs, but one need luck to see them. Later on I've heard they actually don't visit Marsa Mubarak any longer (but the guides wouldn't tell the tourists).

Great snorkeling if there is much wind. Can be a bit busy with all the boats. We went from the beach and that is great if you know were to go.

chance to see a dugong and turtles in the sea grass, but don#t miss out on the nice coral pinnacles at the exit of the bay where you can see morays, turtles, and a beautiful coral garden

The dive site is close to Port Ghalib harbour, so a quick boat trip, the only unfortunate thing about this dive site where the snorkelers, they have no idea how to behave when swimming with divers around, and the poor manatee was chased all over...More
