Just 40 minutes by boat, covering a distance of 10 miles from the port of Marsa Alam, you reach one of the most spectacular reefs in the area, which became a National Park in 2004. The real name of the reef is Sha'ab Samadai, but it is better known as the Dolphin House due to the presence of a permanent family of dolphins.

Being a national park, very restrictive rules are in force, which divide the area into three different zones: zone A exclusive for dolphins, zone B only for snorkeling with mandatory flotation jacket and zone C for mooring boats and for scuba diving.

The first dive is usually done on the east side, directly from the boat or with the help of the dinghy. You skirt the barrier until you reach (depending on the patents) the maximum depth of 24-30 meters, reaching suggestive caves. A short distance from the area where the boats moor, approximately 15-17 meters deep, we come across a series of pinnacles covered in alcyonaria and a veritable expanse of anemones inhabited by cute clownfish.

For the second dive we move to the western side, by boat or dinghy, with suggestive passages in fascinating canyons rich in corals and fish of all species. You will then exit on the outermost pinnacle, and in the drop-off you can see some pelagics such as carangids, barracudas, Napoleon wrasse. Depending on the air still available, you can continue the tour of the pinnacles covered with colored alcyonaria, gorgonians, sponges and various species of hard coral, until you reach the boat directly.
