AL THURAYA RED SEA
“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”

to enter the
There is a lagoon in the Red Sea where these beautiful animals come in the morning to play and rest. We are so privileged to be invited to join their dance. In a respectful way, if the dolphins are in the mood, we enter the water, opening up our hearts to them and wait for their permission. This has been an emotional moment for many of us. They touch many people's heart and it's a joy to witness them play together and swim side by side in their pod..
So grab a cup of coffee (or tea that we drink a lot of in Egypt) and let us tell you a beautiful story.
A saga about love, friendship, adventure, magic, funny characters, emphatic creatures and furfilling dreams. In an ancient land in the east where time feels different and the outside world fades away. Maybe we can convince you that fairytales can come true.

ONCE UPON A TIME
a yoga teacher met a divemaster who told her about the dolphins...
We are an Egyptian company that consists of a Swedish-Egyptian duo who found each other through a huge love of the sea and a mutual passion for giving people a genuine experience and helping them reduce stress. We are focusing on combining the blue wonders with exploring ourselves and connecting with our soul.
Read our story
Just being in the warm calm sea can help us reduce stress and deepen the connection with our true authentic self. Calming our mind, relaxing our body and healing our soul.
The environment also gives us an excellent opportunity to face our fears and challenge ourselves.
We strive to let this nature experience also help foster the conservation of this unique place.
We want to give back to the sea, among other things, by offering to participate in a clean-up day on one of the islands near Sataya.
One week together on a beautiful yacht. An escape from the outside world and a chance to deepen your soul connection.
The program varies from different trips but we usually start every morning, after a spectacular sunrise, with a soft and slow dynamic yoga to awaken our body and mind. We will try to capture the spirits from Sataya and the focus is on yin energy combine with slow and healing flow sessions.
You can always choose to just sit down with a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the new day rising.
During the day we also have group sharing sessions and different work shops. Take a look in our program in the menu and see if anything special excites you.
When the day is ending the sun is lightning up our moon and the stars are starting to shine. We either go up to top deck for a quiet and beautiful YIN & REIKI session under the starry sky, processing the emotions from the day, or we enjoy an interesting lesson with one of our organizers. How about learning about self development or dolphins behavior.
GET FRIENDS FOR LIFE
and have beautiful conversations.
There is something very special about life onboard. Maybe your first thought is that it's hard to share a space with strangers but it can be a beautiful experience. We adapt and we learn to tolerate eachother and in the end of the week we get to know each other as a family.
We also learn one or two things about ourselves.
The most important thing to remember is that there is always a place for you to pull away, be alone and have your own space.
World class snorkeling in a beautiful shallow reef.
Slip off our jetty and into another world just a few meters away from the boat.
Here you will observe the last habitat that we haven’t made our own. The corals are colourful and full of life. You can relax and just float on the surface, enjoy the the most spectacular world and wondrous diversity of life, or dive down a few meters to say hello to the blue spotted stingrays, morays, lion fish, barracudas and much much more.
Learn to freedive
This is a perfect opportunity to get acquainted with apnea, holding your breath under water and learn how to equalize. We will go through the basic technique how to get down efficiently and talk about some safety points in freediving.Everyone who wants to try will have 1-on-1 time with us to get you to feel safe and secure in your own comfort zone.
There are two Dive Masters with us and a lot to explore.
If you already have a diving certificate, you will have the chance to go in to cavens, tunnels, coral gardens and even drop-offs. The marine life in Sataya reef is excellent with schooling fishes of all types.
Try scuba diving
Breathing under water for the first time is a very special feeling. Sataya is the perfect place to try this out with calm water and shallow depths. The instructor will take good care of you and stay with you all the time and we go through everything you need to know before the dive. When you are ready we will go down slowly and have some fun together.
GET SPOILED & HAVE FUN
Let us and the crew take care of you
Three times a day there will be a buffet served with a rich variety of delicious food. Between meals it will be snacks and fresh juice made of fruits of the day (the mango in Egypt is heavenly).
There is always time to do nothing. Our top deck is amazing for sun bathing and if the sun is to strong you can still catch the sun under the half transparent roof on second deck or chill out in the salon that has air conditioning.
...and we promise you laughter and dancing
Let's just face it. Egyptians know how to make you smile and we love to dance here. So prepare for a lot of fun!
Starry Starry Night
After a day with a lot of impressions you tuck yourself in your comfortable bed. Or you choose to fall a sleep on deck, under the stars where the Pleiades, the Al Thuraya, is shining bright, blue and luminous above...
...And when you rest your eyes, if you listening carefully, maybe you can hear a lullaby in the wind:
I am ready to do this

Beautiful words from our customers
My husband and I had the pleasure of joining this incredible team that gave us some of the best memories of our lives.
Each dolphin sighting, each dive, meal, meditation, yoga session, etc were so beautifully planned which provided us with a wonderful experience.
Marie, Mido and the rest of the team were extremely thoughtful and accommodating. They made sure to think of every detail to make this trip extra special.
We saw dolphins every single day, multiple times a day. We were able to swim very close to them and truly make a connection. My husband and I got our diving certification during the trip and were able to join the diving group. That was unforgettable and leveled up our experience even more.
The food was outstanding, the boat crew extremely friendly and the weather absolutely gorgeous.
We look forward to making this trip again and recommend it to anyone interested in making an extra special kind of trip.
This became a really beautiful week for me to go to the Red Sea to meet the Dolphins. They where so beautiful, curious, inviting an caring. So amazing to get to snorkel among them and hear them communicate with each other under the water. I highly recommend that you bring an underwater camera !! I got memories for life!
Also on the boat were Reiki healers, crystal healers, yogis, masseurs and other fellow travelers who all contributed to making it a very spiritual and energy-filled week.
It was really blissful to get to try scuba diving. For a long time I have been wanting to do this and this was really the perfect time!Great food all week which was a really positive because we stayed at sea all week. And just being able to walk in sarong and bikini, barefoot, unmasked without a phone/computer for a week, very nice!
A journey to the Red Sea and the encounters with dolphins, huge amount of fishes an corals in every colors is a unik and fantastic experience. I had never snorkeled before and was afraid of deep water. In one week all the fear and hesitation went away and I got to experience moments I will remember forever.To sleep under the sky and suddenly wake up and discover that the stars and the moon was shining like a spotlight straight down on me, made me whole for real.At least then and there. And then it was the amazing food, morning, lunch and dinner! So many variety of dishes, cooked with finess and passion for flavors and colors. I warmly recommend to join the next trip.
A dream trip! Magical sea, magical dolphins which you get close interaction with! Learn how to dive, swim without a life vest or how to freedive.Yoga and meditation was wonderful. Soft, warm and allowing. Waking up to fantastic sunrises and watchin sunsets, eating amazing food (buffet 3 times a day). A fantastic experience to carry with you!
Do you want to try a new adventure, to live on a boat for 6 days, get to know new people in a way you won't do on a charter trip.To wake up at the sunrise and start the morning with a wonderful yoga class, and then go out and snorkel. Swimming close to dolphins and experience their playfulness and harmony in the water.Yin Yoga at night on top deck to a fantastic starry sky.Eat good food and unwind from internet and smartphones. I can highly recommend this trip!🐬
