8-day cruise in the Red Sea
In a lagoon of turquoise and shallow waters, few miles from a desert of arid mountains in the South of Egypt, come and discover several groups of long-snouted dolphins (Stenella Longirostris !).
An adventure full of discovery…
… and wonders, on the way to your wellbeing and to yourself! This unique journey will focus on different themes:
- Discovery of wild dolphins in respect of the species visited.
- Practice of aquatic relaxation using WATSU® and WATA techniques, in a natural environment, and in warm and living waters.
- Participation in various workshops on the deck of the boat, in addition to the work in water.
WATSU® and WATA practicing in nature
WATSU® and WATA are usually practiced in a pool with calm unsalted water…
Practicing in a beautiful lagoon, in your depth, in the middle of the Red Sea, without further mark than the horizon, surrounded by a beautiful coral reef, is a truly fabulous experience.
Although the wind and wavelets can sometimes complicate things a little, seawater is alive and above all filled with the presence of the dolphins that have been living there forever.
Imagine! Not only are you carried by the arms of the giver, but also by those of the great mother sea in a sunset atmosphere… Magic!
In the context of our trip, and depending on weather conditions, the goal is to allow everyone to experience the bases of these techniques and how to better live the inner encounter with dolphins through this work. Each participant will be able to feel the joy of giving and receiving in a magical aquatic environment.
Meditation and work on oneself
Besides encounters with dolphins and aquatic relaxation, few workshops are offered on the boat deck, which beautifully complement the work in the water. The choice of workshops will depend on the group’s energy and the participants’ desires.
Amongst these workshops, we will offer meditations, yoga classes, massage techniques, as well as talking circles to exchange and share the emotions felt.
I had the pleasure to meet Frédéric in May 2008. I was fascinated by his respectful approach with the dolphins and the beauty of his project in an idyllic lagoon. I am honoured to participate in these so wonderful and touching events.
Frédéric has been practicing apnoea with wild dolphins since 1993. With a instructor’s certificate in hand, he co-created in 1993 in Florida the “Human Dolphin Institute”, a study centre on the relationship between men and dolphins. Then he travels the world in search of new sites and creates in 2003 “Sea Dolphin”, an organisation dedicated to meeting free-roaming cetaceans. In 2003, he discovers in Egypt the site of the dolphins he became expert of. Since then, he supervises about 7 trips per year.
