Sea safaris and trip schedule

Day 1

You will check in on the boat which will not be earlier than 6 p.m.

Day 2

You will depart to the north of the Red Sea for a six-day of cruising. After a three-hour trip, you will reach your first spot for a warm up session in a huge lagoon with crystal clear and shallow water. There, your adventure begins. You can jump or freestyle to the glass flat water. You will see a secluded beach with a great atmosphere, far away from the crowded coasts and cities.

Day 3

You will leave the lagoon early and make a way to your next area. You will discover the authentic coralline’s island with several lagoons and flat water close to the shore. A decent swell also builds up outside the coral reef. During your cruise, you will surely come across many different types of wildlife. After the sunset, the crew may teach you how to catch Calamari. While waiting for the meal to be ready, you can check out the videos and pictures from the day’s session on your screens.

Day 4

This is a day to make a way to the ultimate and extreme trip spot. During the safari, you will travel between the islands to be the perfect side shore wind. The water there is so clear that you will easily see the dolphins as they glide through the water. The real unspoiled area and a great place to take advantage of your kayaks and snorkeling equipment to explore the colorful coral below the surface. With no human pollution, the stars are so bright and many. Enjoy the spectacle with drinks on the deck.

Day 5

After another fantastic breakfast, you are ready for a giant six kilometers downwind ride to your next spot. The boat and your rescue team will follow you to give you that extra aspect of safety. Starting with flat water, you will head outside to catch some serious swell. It is time to try some big carving and high jumps. You will finish the session by detouring to the second day's spot. That will be a great chance to explore the lagoons you missed last time as the area is very large.

Day 6

Early morning departure to your final spot, the inland lagoon. This amazing area will give you the option to kite on flat water or head out to sea to catch some waves. After the session, there will be a time to enjoy a nice aperitif on the lounge deck.

Day 7

Early morning ride on the island lagoon which is a good chance for a final picture session. You will finish kiting around midday and enjoy a hearty lunch before heading back to Hurghada.
