Shaab Sataya

Shaab Sataya (Dolphins Reef) is a great reef more than 2kms long. The dolphins like this place and spend a lot of time there every day. Therefore, depending on what they want, it will be possible to see them, to swim among them or to play with them. We are committed to approach and swim among these wonderful wild and free beings respectfully and with a deep kindness.

Zabargad Island

Zabargad (means “Topaz” in Egyptian Arabic) is a superb dive spot and is the largest of Egypt’s 4 Southern Red Sea marine parks. It lies 70kms off the mainland. The island has exquisite turquoise bays, sandy beaches and a 235 meters high hill at its centre. We can still find evidence of an island community that mined the semi-precious stones there.
