On planet Earth, Man has always assumed that he is much more intelligent than dolphins because he has achieved so much – the wheel, New York, wars and so on – whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than Man, for precisely the same reason.

You are warmly invited to join us for a week’s ‘Dolphin Retreat’ in the clear sparkling waters of the Red Sea. For six days and nights our luxury boat will drop anchor inside a beautiful heart shape reef where in its sheltered waters we will encounter a pod of dolphins ready to engage us.
The reef lies in calm turquoise waters off the southern Egyptian Red Sea Coast. Several pods of Spinner Dolphins play, rest and raise their young away from the strong currents and dangers of the open sea. These dolphins are happy to swim with people and will allow you to cruise along with them, swimming slowly so you can keep up. As they leap in joy your heart will follow.
To engage with dolphins in their natural habitat offers a unique and authentic experience of connecting to beings who perhaps more than any other on the planet embody the qualities of inner freedom, joyfulness and playfulness that resonate with our Inner Child and our soul’s longing to return to a state of Innocence.
Two or three times a day we will go into the warm water to swim with the dolphins. Apart from swimming with dolphins, the shallower waters offer the possibility to enjoy the multitude of other inhabitants of the reef – colourful fish, turtles, rays. Two zodiacs ( motorized rubber dinghies ) are at our disposal to take us where we wish.
In the evenings we will enjoy the magnificent sunsets and gather as a group to share, reflect, meditate upon and digest the impressions that our day has made on us.
For the entire duration of the retreat we will stay on board the Nooraya, a 29 metre long luxury yacht where we will be pampered by an experienced crew that includes a chef, a butler and snorkel guides who are there to attend to our every need. The first night will be spent in the harbour. The next day, after two hours sailing, we will come to Sataya Reef where we will stay for the next six nights.
Three buffet style meals are served daily in the air conditioned saloon. Outside there is ample deck space on three levels for relaxing when we are not in the water. Snack and soft drinks are available throughout the day.
Accomodation is in comfortable twin berthed cabins ( shared ) with en-suite shower and wc. Most people however prefer to sleep on deck under the stars.
Cost – €1450.00. Incl return flights from Amsterdam or Brussels to Marsa Alam, visa fee, transfer in Egypt, full board on boat in shared cabin and incl limitless supply of snacks and soft drink, use of day room and meal in a hotel on the last day.
