Shaab Sataya/Dolphin Reef

 

 

Shaab Sataya, also goes by the name of Dolphin Reef. It is your prime option to spot the friendly animals in the wild. It has the shape of a banana or a crescent and shelters a large pod of spinner dolphins. Sometimes you can hear the dolphins ‘cry’ with their high-pitched sounds and whistles. Always bear in mind that dolphins are wild animals. They are not like your house pets. They don’t appear in command. Therefore, sightings or encounters cannot be 100% guaranteed.

 

Shaab Sataya has become the residence of turtles such as the green and Hawksbill turtles, the Red Sea pufferfish, the bi-colour parrotfish, the cube boxfish, the clearfin lionfish and the orangehead butterflyfish.

Hamata Islands

 

The Hamata Islands are in an area called Qul’an Archipelago. They have become the home of turtles, clownfish, dolphins, rays and dugongs. Hamata is billed as the Egyptian Maldives, because of her sandy beaches. It has even become a bird sanctuary where ornithologists come to observe unique birds.

 

This is a remote liveaboard destination, tucked away as part of the Wadi El Gemal national park in the southern Red Sea. The marine life in the lagoons is spectacular.

 

You will appreciate the presence of giant sea turtles, the banded dascyllus,

the domino damselfish, the black-spotted pufferfish, the bi-coloured cleaner wrasse, the crown squirrelfish ad the blotcheye soldierfish. Photographers will have the time of their life with the fine collection of raspberry corals, bubble corals, brain corals and fire corals.
