Dolphin Reef

A Little About the Dolphin Reef in Eilat 

Dolphin Reef, opened in 1990, is dedicated to the vision of bringing humans and animals closer together in a respectful manner. The dolphins at Dolphin Reef are wild and are not held in captivity in any way. They have the ability to come and go as they please with constant access to the sea. The goal of the Dolphin Reef is to maintain three values; environment, society, and economics. For the environment, they want to bring humans and nature together through positive interactions and with respect to the local habitat. They gain knowledge through scientific research that causes zero harm. For society, they want to lead by example, demonstrating that humankind and nature can coincide in peace. Lastly, for economics, they pride themselves on economic independence to remain resolute in their values and strategy.

If You love Dolphins This is the Place! 

If you would like to get up and close with the dolphins in their natural habitat; you can do so at the Dolphin Reef. Visitors aged 8-88, who are confident swimmers; can take a scuba diving tour with seasoned instructors. You will have the opportunity to descend 6 meters into the gulf and interact with these vibrant creatures. In addition, those aged 10-88 can go snorkeling instead! Can you imagine what it would be like to come face to face with one of the most playful and iconic creatures of the sea? Dolphins are incredibly curious animals who may be wondering about you just as much as you are wondering about them. In fact, you can watch them speed through the water as they play with their family, friends, and maybe you too!

So on my guided tours of Eilat, this is one of my favorite spots to visit! My guests really like here; and it’s a great way to connect to nature. Also if you have kids and you’re touring alone without a private tour guide; this is an ideal spot while touring Eilat!
