Shaab Samadai / Dolphin House

Shaab Samaday, also known as Dolphin House, is a protected area by the Egyptian environment authorities. The crescent formation of the reef and shallow water has, over time, attracted bottlenose dolphins that use it as a rest location. This dive is perfect for entry-level divers and snorkelers alike.

This is the most common place in southern Egypt for those looking to dive with dolphins. It is also rich in other marine life such as rays and all the common Red Sea fish species.
