Ferry option into Sharm

Ferry option into Sharm

Egypt’s Ministry of Transport has reopened a ferry link between the dive-resort towns of Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh, following a seven-year break.

The La Pespes catamaran that operates the service can accommodate just over 300 passengers. The crossing takes two and a half hours, as opposed to a more expensive internal flight or a cheaper 11-hour bus-ride.

The ferry service gives another option to divers currently finding it difficult to reach Sharm because of bans on flights into its airport. Its usefulness does however depend on convenience of connections between flights in and out of Hurghada and its twice-weekly 8am departures and evening return trips from Sharm.

Tourists pay 630 Egyptian pounds (around £55) for a return trip.
