Over night trip to sataya reef and dolphin house in Marsa Alam
- Sataya reef is the biggest reef of the Red Sea with a length of 45 km. Boats starting from Hamata will reach the spot within two hours. In depths between 5 and 40 meter beginner and advanced divers will enjoy the hard and soft coral fields inhabited by a variety of fish you hardly find anywhere else! The Napoleon wrasse is a common visitor, curious dolphins are approaching the groups of divers and along the drop off you might even spot barracudas or sharks. An alive and intact Sataya reef is for sure a place you will remember…
Overnight Trip to Sataya Reef and Dolphin House
Our overnight trip to Sataya Dolphinhouse is starting from the marina in Hamata. The small village is located about 100 km south of Marsa Alam. From its harbour daily boats and safari trips head towards the stunning reefs of the Southern Red Sea.
In the morning we will pick you up from your hotel and drive to Hamata in air conditioned minibuses. The transfer time will be around two hours – depending on the location of your hotel.
As soon as you arrive on board, you will get a short introduction while having soft drinks in the saloon. Choose your rooms and make yourself comfortable on our vessel, while we are already on our way to Sataya.
After having a relaxing two hours ride we will arrive to our destination. A quick briefing will prepare you for your first dive. All the first day can be enjoyed also with snorkelling and swimming with dolphins. You have enough time to discover the coral reef of Shaab Sataya from the surface before you will do your second dive. A highlight is certainly the diving at the 600 meter deep cliff.
Later on you will watch the sun set with the delicious food prepared by our chief on the boat.
Don’t miss the most impressive view from the high deck – watching the stars and moon. Light Egyptian music and our hand made beduin coffee called gabbana are completing the atmosphere.
Early in the morning of the second day we will take you to another dive. The best chance to spot dolphins and rays while diving will be during that time.
When we had our breakfast the boat moves to Abu Galawa for your last dive during our trip. The most beautiful coral reef wants to be discovered. Here you also can expect a special dive. On the one hand you might be lucky to observe sharks, on the other hand there is a 50-year-old shipwreck to be rediscovered. You will find yourself in the middle of thousands of glass fish once you are close to the wreck.
Only lunch and a small break are left before we start our trip back to the harbour. The minibus takes you back to your hotel in time to take the dinner.
Our overnight trip to Sataya is a wonderful trip to do with family and friends while you are in Marsa Alam, do not miss it out.
