Nooraya

A Unique Experience

Nooraya organises dolphin trips from several European countries to the wonderful Red Sea in Egypt. Our main destination is Sataya “The Dolphin Bay”, which protects a lagoon with turquoise and calm waters. It is in this Bay that several groups of Spinner Dolphins come to rest, play and raise their young sheltered from the currents and dangers of open sea and where our passengers have the opportunity to swim with dolphins in their natural environment. Hereby, we handle a strict code of conduct to guarantee their wellbeing.

Dolphin Reef Sataya

Our Dolphin trips will take you at one of the world largest and most beautiful reefs called "Dolphin Reefs" a 5 meters long coral reef where the boat will anchor for 6 to 10 days. Several pods of Long Snout Spinner Dolphins come every day to Sataya to rest and play, granting us the experience of swimming alongside us, sometimes playing with us, always generously offering us their joyful and loving presence.

Special Themes

Each one of our dolphin cruise proposes a special theme for the week. The activity and guidance  is offered on board by professional and passionate teachers and will allow us to know more about our selves, to find peace and quiet within ourselves, to unify our mind, body and heart, or simply to let go and relax, by means of a variety of tools and techniques such as hathayoga, meditation, dance, sound and voice, Pilates and Nia, artistic and creative workshops, Ayurvedic conferences or family constellations. The intensives proposed on board are completely free and not mandatory!

Dolphin Encounters

When the dolphins are inside the Bay, our snorkel guides will take you to them 2 to 4 times a day -with the zodiacs if necessary. The dolphins are happy to swim with people, having done so for many years now. In fact, many of them have been born into the habit. They are curious and joyful creatures and like to approach swimmers, peer into our face masks and swim alongside them. They will allow you to cruise along with them, swimming slowly so that you can keep up. They may leap and play and chase each other, giving you a wonderful show you will remember for a lifetime and often inviting you to take part in their game. They love children and are very gentle in their approach.

Snorkeling

The dolphins are wild and free, so there will be moments during the day when they will be less present around the boat or when they simply will not want to interact with us. Whenever the dolphins take their leave of us, you are given plenty of opportunity to visit the surrounding reef, snorkeling at your own pace. The amazing underwater world of the Red Sea remains a living tapestry of stunning corals and exotic fish and Sataya holds in its heart several amazing sites waiting for you to discover their secrets!

Daily Life

We usually wake up at sunrise and start our day with a dolphin encounter. After breakfast again we go out to meet the dolphin or to swim along the reef. Lunch is served around twelve, followed by a moment of rest. Early afternoon, when dolphins are inside the Bay, we propose another moment with them or a visit to the reefs by snorkeling or we can also enjoy some moments of fun or relaxation in the shallow water where Watsu or Wata sessions are possible. At sunset, after a delicious snack, we usually come together on the shadow deck where the activity will take place. Dinner is usually served around 7 pm and the evening is free for each one of us to rest, read, listen to some music or just enjoy being together…

Relaxation

Our boat will be anchored for 6 days in the marvelous Sataya Bay, where we are literally surrounded by its turquoise blue waters, immerged into its regenerating energy. Sataya is one of the rare places on our Planet where we can enjoy the magic of both sunrise and sunset every day! The contact with the dolphins and the fascinating beauty of the Bay help us to just let go of our daily life and worries and bring our body and mind to a place of delicious relaxation. During the day, if you feel like being alone, there is enough space on the various decks to either sunbathe or rest in the shade and find your own quiet place.
