Program

After arrival at Hurghada airport

  • We will pick you up at the airport and after 15 min transfer you will board the safari boat at marina Hurghada.
  • The first night you spend on board the Safari boat in the marina Hurghada and we leave the next morning to reach our first spot along the Egyptian coastline to the north.
  • Depending on the weather conditions we will spend up to 2 days at each spot. If the wind changes the boat will change position as well to a spot where the wind conditions are better. This way you explore at least 3 different spots and follow the wind wherever it is.
  • On some routes you will be able to accompany the boat enjoying kiting if the boat is moving downwind to the next spot. The professional crew will take care of you and can rescue you with the zodiac whenever you need it.
  • On the afternoon of the 6th day (Friday) the boat will return to the marina Hurghada.
  • During the Kite Safari you enjoy 6 days of pure fun and kiting in pristine lagoons with smooth flat water or riding the open sea.
  • There will be video sessions offered which you can use to improve your kiting technique and skills.
  • During no wind conditions you can relax on board, try Stand Up Paddling, Wakeboarding or go for snorkelling. The equipment is available on board. You might be lucky and have the possibility to swim with dolphins or meet even bigger wonders of the Red Sea.

After returning to Marina Hurghada

  • The last night of your Kite Safari you will spend on the boat in the marina. From there it's only a few steps to some very attractive restaurants, bars and clubs.
  • For the departure we will transfer you to Hurghada airport in time for your returning flight.

Frequently asked questions

What is a Kite Safari?
You live on a special safari boat in a double cabin and cruise to at least 3 different exciting kite spots in the Red Sea. You do not need to leave the boat every day, but stay on board enjoy every hour either with kiting, relaxing, eating delicious meals, have interesting discussions with your old or newly found friends and do whatever else you would like to do. Every second day the boat will drive to a new spot as planned or even earlier if wind conditions change.

What are the advantages of a Kite Safari?
Enjoy different spots where no other kiter from the coast centers will be. You will have to share the spots just with the kitesurfer from the boat. There is no daily packing, leaving the boat and coming back the next day. Relax and enjoy the familiar atmosphere and the sounds of the open sea.

What do we do if there is no wind?
In case there is no wind you can go snorkelling, try Wakeboarding or Stand Up Paddling. Or you hang loose, read a book or chat with your fellow kiters. Whatever is in your mind, just do it.

Who can join the Kite Safari?
All kiters with freerider level can join (i.e. IKO level 3 or above). You must be able to ride upwind and handle wind conditions up to 30 knots.
Also intermediates or almost-freeriders are welcome of course. You can book kite lessons, but you have to tell us upfront, so we can organize enough kite-instructors for the trip.
Accompanying partners who do not want to kite but just relax and try all other activities are welcome as well. Please ask for the price.
