Named after the Egyptian colloquialism for the Red Sea’s rare southern winds, Aziab offers seafaris from Hamata Marina in Egypt’s Marsa Alam.
The spray of the Red Sea against your skin as you sail off the shores of Egypt, or the calm of Greece’s islands as you feel the summer breeze through your hair and taste the sea salt in the air… These are sensations most travellers can never get over, and they’re ones that Aziab Seafaris is dedicated to sharing with their sailing experiences.
Named after the Egyptian colloquialism for the Red Sea’s rare southern winds, Aziab offers seafaris from Hamata Marina in Egypt’s Marsa Alam. Their trips take you across Satayah, the ‘Dolphin House’ with hundreds of dolphins protected by one of the Red Sea’s largest reefs, as well as four pristine islands and the Abu Galawa Reef, where divers can discover the sunken wreckage of the famous Tien Hsing steam tugboat.
Aziab also offers trips across Greecian islands all year round, operating a fleet of sailing boats and catamarans where they sail by the Cyclades and lonian islands. “In Greece, we do island exploration, cliff jumping, discover caverns and much more,” Omar Sherif shares with SceneTraveller.
The ride takes place on the prestigious Beneteau Cyclades occupying a maximum of 10 guests with four cabins. ”This ultimately sets for an intimate setting for both friends and family,” Sherif says. The yacht is powered by a 120w solar panel. “We consider ourselves as one of the most eco-friendly boats in Egypt as we rely 95% on solar panels and 90% on sails beside our minimization of plastic consumption. We also hold a provision of eco-friendly sunscreen on board.”
Prices begin at EGP 5,400 and EGP 5,850 for a half-week, single spot in a cabin with a shared window for low and high seasons respectively. You can place your booking via their website at aziab-seafaris.com
