Snorkelling with SeaWorld

What’s the meaning of Snorkeling?

In the last years every aquasport center use this word, but not everyone knows what it is; Snorkeling is one of the way to discover the amazing sea life while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually fins. The tube or snorkel helps to breathe while face-down at the surface, the fins help swimming with relatively little effort and the mask allows you to admire the wonderful marine life. Everyone can enjoy snorkeling, don’t need to be skilled swimmers, you can use a life jacket to float feeling safe to whom have never tried it before. Discover a place with a local guide it is more safe and easy and he can show you up something that you miss to notice. Seaworld Diving Center organizes snorkeling trips by boat or by beach and our experienced guide will swim ever with you.

Giant turtles and the dugong are among the most famous animals that can be found in this bay; they are a natural and wild marine animals, so it can happen that you can’t find them, however, the giant green turtles are more sedentary and with a good chance you can meet them. There are not only dugongs and sea turtles in Abu Dabbab Bay, you can also see other rare animals, like guitar sharks, completely harmless, giant breeds, titan triggerfishes, puffer fishes, jacks and barracudas also. Along the reef you could also find scorpion fishes, stone fishes, crocodile fishes, butterfly fishes and plenty of colourful corals of Red Sea. This makes Abu Dabbab a “must” to be visited during your holiday in Marsa Alam. Seaworld diving center guides you in the middle of the bay and along the reef.
