The Story: As the sun cast its golden hues across the Red Sea, I found myself immersed in an extraordinary experience at Satays Reef, Egypt. Our liveaboard journey had been filled with breathtaking dives, but this particular day, we traded our scuba gear for snorkels to explore the vibrant marine life in a different way.

Equipped with only my camera and a sense of awe, I ventured into the crystal-clear waters surrounding Sataya Reef. As luck would have it, a pod of playful dolphins gracefully glided through the sea, their sleek bodies cutting through the waves with effortless elegance.

The scarcity of snorkels among the group meant I had to make do without one. Hence the challenge lay not only in the dolphins' speed but also in the need to hold my breath while framing the perfect shot.
