Red Sea, Egypt Day 6

The final day was spent off the boat. After docking in Hurgarda we all took an organised excursion that included buggy and quad biking, a jeep journey into the desert to visit a Bedouin encampment. An amazing show including dancers and a strongmen act followed by a delicious buffet meal sat on the floor on rugs and all topped off, of course, with a camel ride.

The evening was spent touring Hurgarda, the main tourist area, ending in Camel burgers and beer at a pub called Moby Dick´s.

A brilliant day with a great group of people.


The boat itself was perfect in every respect and during our down time we were fantastically looked after by a crew of 6 guys who provided delicious and plentiful food and could not do enough to help us make the most of our time; I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in going on a live aboard. Egypt has over 1200 species of fish and 250 species of coral to explore, it really is an underwater paradise and is a must see for anyone.
