Strong currents in the Strait of Tiran means that there's an abundance of fish. I seems big schools of trevallies, tuna, and more other fish than I have seen anywhere in the world. Also spotted turtles, dolphins ... will have to come back to see the hammerhead!

tiran Island is in a natural park area in the Gulf of aqaba where it joins the Red Sea proper. The snorkelling is wonderful but try to go with an excursion that spends more than 30 minutes there. A least an 1 hour is needed. Take snorkel, sunscreen and plenty of water!

We went on a snorkelling yacht trip here. It was a wonderful experience! The organisers were really helpful and even gave me a tablet for sea-sickness before the journey just in case.

It was incredible swimming in the sea and seeing a ridiculous amount of coloured fish up close! The yacht we went on also did an inclusive lunch which was really tasty!

Definitely worth going to, my favourite excursion of the holiday (after camel riding into the desert at night)!

Alhough asked to be ready for pick up for 8.30 am got on the bus at 9.00am, and didn't get on the boat till 10.30 am, It was plain sailing and excellent and would recommend the snorkling tiran island trip. Saw lot s of colourful and different fishes, three stops, food and drinks included in the price, the staff on board were great and were at help even if you were not a strong swimmer, They helped my daughter overcome her fear and she snorkled for the first time in the sea and at the end totally at ease snorkling !!! Would recommend to hire a life jacket though if you are not a good swimmer , and bring your own snorkles.
