  • dolphins want you here (an hour in the water with the dolphins) and a small hour on the reefs with a multitude of exotic fish. +-2 hours of navigation to the go + idem on return but it's worth it.

  • In May, they were vacationing at wadi Lahmy Azur Resort 4 with a direct flight from Kiev to Marsa Alam airport. And taking advantage of the fact that the hotel is located near the port of Hamata, repeated the trip to Sataya Reef to the dolphins. Last year we went on this tour from The Three Corners Equinox Beach Resort. The trip was quite tiring. Two hours on a bass ride to the port, and then another two hours on the strongest waves on a yacht to the island. This time from the hotel Wadi Lahmi drove only 10 minutes, the yacht sailed more than two hours but on a perfectly smooth sea, the trip was pleasant and not tiring. Sataya Reef is in the sea, there live dolphins and 90% that meeting with them will take place. Yes, swimming with dolphins is an unforgettable experience that stays with you for a long memory. A lot of people took pictures and made videos, but it does not convey all the delight that you feel when you meet them. It seems that you will reach out and you can touch them, but no, they are not given, although they swim very close. We hope to swim with them again on the next trip.
