Dolphin Safari

 

Can you imagine, what it is like to have absolutely no judgment about you?
 

What might it be like to be totally at ease with you and the world? Would you like to experience how it is to be in a space beyond anything you can even imagine? To be grateful and in total communion with your body and everyone and everything around you?

Have you ever wondered what an encounter with dolphins could facilitate for you?
Many of our guests experience changes in their awareness, intense joy, happiness, bliss, deep relaxation and a sense of wellbeing and peace they never had before. 

 
What would it create in your live to communicate without words? Or to be in that special vibration of pure joy, fun and contribution beyond anything words can describe?

 

What might it change in your world to see some of the most amazing places on this planet, only few people ever get to see?

Date for the next

Dolphin Safari

August 3 till 17 2020

We would like to invite you to join us onboard the luxury Aquastars boat from

August 3 toll 17 2020.

You will be collected by the amazing Aquastars team at the Hurghada airport and will be driven 4 hours into the deep south. In Hamata we will board Aquastars luxury boat where you will have a shared twin or bunk cabin.
Even though there are air conditioned cabins often people prefer to sleep under the stars on deck being lulled to sleep by the waves and count shooting stars. 

In the morning we'll sail 2.5 hours to Sataya dolphin reef, a 10 km stretch of pristine coral reef and home to more than one large pods of spinner dolphins  that typically swim past at sunrise and sunset each day and often spend lazy afternoons playing and interacting with us. 

We will spend the days moored at different places near Sataya reef, exploring the diverse reefs of the area. The activities and your level of involvement in them will be up to you but primarily we will be there to spend time with the dolphins. The reefs in the area provide an opportunity to see different sharks, turtles, Manta & Eagle Ray and Napoleon Wrasse. 

The dolphins are used to human interaction and will most likely allow you to join their pod and invite you to whatever you require that moment.
What if you just have to ask for them to show up
Being moored at Sataya reef overnight also gives an opportunity to spend time with them without other tour boats being around. This provides a very personal interaction with them.

There will also be an opportunity for the following:

- swimming and snorkelling, organised supported swims or just along the reef
- scuba diving, day and night, as much as you like
- specialist scuba courses
- exchanging Access Consciousness® Bars and Body Processes
- Access Clearing nights
- snorkelling
- wild swimming

Buffet breakfast, lunch, dinner and soft drinks are provided and your needs can be catered for, whether vegetarian or vegan. 

On the afternoon of Wednesday 29th May, we will return to the shore and either stay another night at the boat or head to Safaga, 45 km south of Hurghada, to Amwaj Blue Beach and Spa for 1 night so that its easier to catch morning flights or bring you right back to the airport to catch your night flight.

Depending on people's flight times on Thursday 30th May we will depart the boat or hotel to go to Hurghada for souvenir shopping then to Hurghada airport.
