A 1 3/4 hour boat trip from the Eilat marina. On the outboard journey we slowed next to the dolphin reef so we could see the dolphins. Then we continued to the nature reserve and went down into the glass sided submarine hull where we could see the marine life for about 15 minutes. Then we sailed back. A very... More

We have just returned after experiencing our first cruise, it was an experience we will repeat. Our ship was La Belle de L'Adriatique and had 100 cabins on 4 decks. It was one of CroisiMers cruises and we were with a party of 19 Voyages Jules Verne passengers. We went to Kuoni with instructions that our first experience of cruising... More

Took this short cruise because the boat has glass panels in the sides below the water line to view the coral and sea life. Sadly the entrance to the viewing chamber was a steep flight of iron steps which lead to a cramped chamber. The boat was full of children and the viewing chamber posed a safety hazard to enter...

We were a family with 2 kids. The whole journy took about 1:40 hour. We enjoyed only 20 minuts when the boat stop at the reefs, the boat didnot stop near the dolphin reef, and the boat ride was very very slow and its was a little bit boring. If you are a tourist who never have been in eilat... More

The boat is great, probably the best around, with nice crew and a wonderful underwater view of the coral reef. This was a great ride, worth every penny and mandatory if you came to Eilat. See it from high sea, also Aqaba. Highly recommend, the crew was very pleasant and attentive to our young toddler.

We were interested in taking a glass bottom boat tour. We were promised a two hour tour with watching dolphins and seeing the underwater life. In sum, we departed a half hour late. The boat did not stop at the dolphin reef, it merely slowed and we did not see any dolphins. The guide initially spoke only in Hebrew and... More

There are a bunch of boats you can go out on in the Eilat Harbor. We were told this is the best, and the underwater part is amazing. They take you out for about 30 minutes to the Coral Reef. When you get there, they open the underwater part of the boat and you are watching the coral reef up... More
