THE DOLPHIN REEF

One of the most impressive and popular attractions is the Dolphin Reef. This unique ecological site offers magical views from a secluded beach, along with the magical experience of meeting and observing dolphins in their natural habitat. A group of “bottlenose” dolphins, including babies born at the site, maintain their daily routine of hunting, playing, courting and socializing. They are free to choose interact with people or continue their daily routine in the group. Visitors can enjoy getting up close and personal with the dolphins from floating piers and observation points or on one of their guided swims or dives, suitable to anyone who is not afraid of getting wet. Contact with people is based on the free will and choice of the dolphins. Their choice to approach guided groups of snorkelers or divers is not reinforced by feeding during these encounters. It is worth mentioning that the dolphins continually develop an even stronger connection with humans based only on curiosity, play, and spontaneous interaction.

UNDERWATER OBSERVATORY

From its creation almost 40 years ago the Underwater observatory has been a must see attraction in Eilat. It is set in the midst of a beautiful coral reef teaming with life and activity. You get a close view of this fascinating underwater ecosystem, with its vast array of fish life and sea creatures as well as the hundreds of different types of corals. Here you are able to observe the wonders of the coral reef, both from above and beneath the sea.
