  • 05 16, 2023

The Dolphin House is a protection area 2 km from Marsa Alam, which contains dolphins and coral reefs that take the shape of a horseshoe in the middle of the water, 500 meters wide and 900 meters long. Where more than 5,000 dolphins live, it is one of the rarest and most beautiful nature reserves located at the bottom of the Red Sea, and there are safari and diving tourism, caves, and coral reefs in the region.

The Environmental Protection Agency took several measures to preserve the reserve and prepared a study on the environmental behavior of dolphins in the region. There is also a dolphin reserve in the El Gouna area, north of Hurghada, with mangrove trees spread and tourists flock to it. There you will find flocks of dolphins having fun and enjoying swimming and diving in their own kingdom “Dolphin Sanctuary”. More than 5,000 dolphins swim, energize and sleep among the reefs of turquoise waters.

Tourism began to be active in Marsa Alam after visitors became aware of the presence of dolphins within the reefs of Samadai. This area was called this name because of the permanent presence of the Samad bird in this area during its migration. Samadai Reef is one of the largest marine areas that is characterized by a distinctive biological diversity, as this region has prepared a program for sustainable development, economic use, and financial resources for its management, through diving trips from tourists to this region, while preserving the first place the natural resource, which is Dolphins and coral reefs.

Where the Samadai area was divided into different areas to preserve dolphins and coral reefs, including area (A) for dolphins resting and no one is allowed to enter, area (B) for diving and swimming only, and area (C) for parking and waiting for boats. Zone (D): It is an outdoor area and many activities are allowed.

A catalog was made for all dolphins within the area, pictures were prepared for each of them and their names were prepared, as well as monitoring of their reproduction and behavior, knowledge of the length and weight of each, and the distinctive marks on the body of each dolphin, and monitoring of changes in their behavior during their presence in the reserve. And among the conditions of the administration of the area, it is strictly forbidden to approach dolphins or take pictures with them, for fear of a miscarriage during pregnancy.

The Samadi area has been dubbed by tourists, especially Europeans, as the paradise of Egypt, where the tourist dives amidst at least hundreds of dolphins. If you want to visit the Dolphins House and enjoy a dive with dolphins and see the brightest colored coral reefs, contact Cairo Top Tour!
