Sailing, Freediving and Yoga with wild Dolphins 

3 -- 8 of January 2025

Make a dream come true and come with me on a journey to the protected Sataya Reef with wild resident Dolphins

In the very south of Egypt there is a beautiful little bay with spinner dolphins. The dolphins are residents, meaning they are in the area 95% of the time and only exit for little excursions to the surrounding open sea to fish and explore. In collaboration with Aziab Seafari we will spend 5 days on a luxurious sailboat, whit which we will sail down to Sataya Dolphin Bay, carried by windenergy. To get the most out of the interaction with dolphins we will stop on some beautiful places on the way, where you learn the basic techniques of freediving, breathold training and equalization practice. With plenty of time to explore the colorful reefs of the red sea, we will head to the dolphin bay where we will spend 3 days diving with the dolphins and improving our freediving skills (guided coaching). 

Yoga will frame our days whenever we touch some land (little sandy Islands!) as well as Pranayama and simple postures to start and end the days, which keeps us comfortable and happy in our bodies.

A week full of sun, sailing  and epic dolphin encounters. Join the first and only Sailboat in the Redsea, only sharing it with a small group of likely minded people. This can be the magical equation of joy to anyone who considers himself/herself a thalassophile.

In this retreat, you will settle into your breathe, your mind chatter quietens, and your muscles starts to relax as you take your last breath before dipping your head below the surface just to get dazzled by hundrets of dolphins.
