WHY TO MAKE THIS TRIP

Swimming with dolphins in their natural environment is a truly unforgettable experience. In this adventure you will have the

opportunity to connect with these playful and curious mammals in a safe, responsible and ecologically sensitive way and

also enjoy the beautiful coral reefs,the sun and the hospitality of the locals. To participate you need to be of an average

level of fitness to swim and to get on and off boats into the water. Life jackets are provided.

The Eco-village resort offer a high standard of accommodation and has been hosting divers and snorkelers for 20 years,

renowned for their work with marine conservation in this area of the Red Sea.

ACTIVITIES & FUN

Swimming with the dolphins

On the 3 Dolphin Swim day trips you will be transferred at 9.30am (40 min transfer) to the dive boat with other divers and snorkelers. Lunch on boat and return back about 4pm.

You will be given an orientation and a snorkeling practice on your first day to get comfortable with your mask and snorkel if you need to. There will be a safety talk and opportunity to snorkel in the bay close to the resort.

On each of the 3 days we travel in well equipped dive-boats with upper and lower shaded decks, toilets, a salon and galley to the reef (in the Marine Park Reserve) and then swim with the dolphins in the sheltered bay.

You need to be able to swim, but no diving experience is needed. You will be using a face mask, snorkel and fins. The Eco-Village Resort has a PADI-certified dive school, where it is possible to book introductory courses or for qualified divers you can dive at the many local world-class dive sites. Equipment may be hired on site.

The U-shaped coral reef lies in calm turquoise waters off the Egyptian coast, one hour by boat. It has been designated a Marine Park Reserve so it is a protected area. A group of up to 200 Spinner Dolphins rest, play and raise their young away from the strong currents and dangers of the open sea. If the dolphins are outside the bay, our small (RIB) boat drivers will take you to them and drop you into the water beside them so you can watch them underwater and interact with them. This reef is a popular spot with divers so there is usually several other dive boats there and likely to be other swimmers in the areas where the dolphins play.

The area is famous for the spectacularly beautiful coral reefs and very popular with scuba divers. You will also have plenty of opportunity to snorkel and be active in the water or take time relaxing on a sunbed on deck. While snorkeling you may see dolphins, turtles and rays or the very rare dugongs which live in the area. You can also enjoy the colorful coral and fish of the reef.
