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.

Really nice resort, friendly staff, fantastic location. We would come back again! Been to Egypt many times and never disappoint. Weather is fantastic and the people are very friendly in the resorts.

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
