The waters off the coast of the city of Sharm el Sheikh are a very rich place; being a protected place in the Red Sea. A large number of tourists come to Sharm el Sheikh all around the year, with some excellent weather (especially in winter when North Europe and North America is freezing under the bitter cold) with the weather being temperate all year round. In addition, the blue water, the coral formations in multiple locations, and the scuba diving and snorkeling available with such coral reefs draws a huge number of people the year round. The Red Sea also contains dolphins, and with many chunks of the marine area having been declared as protected area, these animals do not face any threat from fishing, and the coral formations are also protected. Tourists take boats or small ships to these coral formations, such as we did. On the way to these coral formations, we came across a pod of dolphins, and had some great fun watching them (especially since for city slickers such as us, the chance of watching dolphins in the wild would never happen). In these photos, the dolphins were under the water surface, but clearly visible.
