Besides dolphins there is nice canyon/cave and corals. You should definitely try it. It is accessible by boat from Marsa Alam.

It's a must see when you go to Marsa Alam even if it's a short visit. Whether you like diving or snorkeling, you are gonna love it. Most of times you will be lucky and find the dolphin swimming besides or below you.
