When is the best time to snorkel in Hurghada?
.Snorkeling in Hurghada is possible all year. The main seasonal variation in Egypt is water temperature, which can drop to 21 degrees Celsius in the winter and rise to 30 degrees Celsius in the summer. However, as a snorkeler, you will always be near the ocean's surface, which is the most warmed by the sun. If you are concerned about getting cold, bring a wetsuit with you on your vacation. After you've asked your tour operator for the most up-to-date information on water conditions, it's also very easy (and much less bulky) to buy or rent a wetsuit in Egypt. It should be noted that some people advise avoiding the hottest months of the year (July and August). If you don't like to sweat or are prone to heat exhaustion, the best months to visit are May through June (Spring) or September through November (Autumn).
