After falling in love with snorkeling in the Maldives I could not wait to snorkel in the Red Sea. We chose a hotel with their own house reef so we didn't even have to go far!
The fish we saw were fantastic but I think I was spoilt in the Maldives with the warm bath like water and great visibility as the Red Sea was freezing (it was January) and visibility could be quite poor.
We did go on one day trip with Colona Divers to go snorkeling but didn't really see much as the weather conditions made the sea very choppy with poor visibility. However just as we were about to get back on the boat Alex spotted a Hawksbill turtle which was so amazing to see and saved the day :)
