BOAT EXCURSION IN THE STRAIT OF TIRAN WITH SCOOTER
The boat trip, a totally private occasion for us, offers the opportunity to explore, in freediving, the spectacular coral gardens and the rich fauna of the Tiran’s reef. The strait is characterized by four reefs aligned and visible on the surface that bear the names of British cartographers (Gordon, Woodhouse, Thomas, Jackson) who mapped the area in the 19th century. Tiran Island is located at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba where the distance that separates Egypt from Saudi Arabia is only 20km. It is an important step for the trade linked to the ports of Eilat in Israel and Aqaba, Jordan’s port.
Being accessible only by boat, this dive site is still well preserved than those of the local coast. There is a good chance of spotting a white tip reef sharks and, especially during the summer months, hammerhead sharks, as well as turtles and colorful fish’s barrier.
Departure at 8:30 am from the hotel, followed by approx. 30 minutes to reach the port of Sharks Bay where we will wait for a modern and comfortable private boat, equipped with all the necessary comforts and sanitation. The return is scheduled around 16.00.
The price includes lunch, hot and cold drinks on board.
Price per person: 35/50 EUR.
