Snorkeling with dolphins in the open sea is the dream of many people. There are several spots in the world where you have great chances to see dolphins in the wild while snorkeling. Make for Hawaii or the Red Sea to experience what could be one of your very best underwater memories!
Who has never dreamed of swimming on the surface of a turquoise sea, surrounded by dozens of playful dolphins, in the wild? Sataya Reef (aka “Dolphin House”), located off the Egyptian Riviera, is simply one of the best places in the world to live this unique experience.
Shaab Samadai (Samadai Reef) is one of the most famous snorkeling spots in Marsa Alam. It owes its popularity to the pod of spinner dolphins that have settled around the reef, and they can be seen in the area almost every day. Tours for Shaab Samadai depart from Marsa Alam and generally include two snorkeling locations on the same day: the first to the deep areas where dolphins are usually found, and the second to the adjacent beautiful coral reefs.
If you visit Hawaii and enjoy snorkeling, you must go to Big Island. Two Step spot, in Honaunau Bay, is visited almost daily by small pods of spinner dolphins. You might also spot them at Captain Cook Monument, but less frequently.
