After a few months of activating the management plan and daily environmental monitoring, a significant increase in the number of dolphins in the Samadai reef was recorded. The Red Sea Reserves Department conducted studies that confirmed that large numbers of dolphins, known as the rotary dolphin, come daily in large numbers to the Samadai reef area for rest.

The Samadai reef area was divided with floating signs into 4 areas (A, B, C, and D): Area (A): It is an area designated for the rest of the dolphins, completely closed to all activities. Zone (B): It is an area where only swimming is allowed and no other activities are allowed.

Area (C): It is an area designated for waiting for tourist launches. Zone (D): It is the outer area and all activities are allowed.
