Kite Safari

Island Expedition

Our Red Sea Kite Safari will take you on a grand tour of Egypt’s most famous remote kitesurfing spots! As soon as you hit the ground at Hurghada International Airport our transfer service will be ready to bring you to the New Marina where your luxury home for the week is waiting!

This action-packed Island Tour is the perfect choice for every kitesurfing enthusiast! Join a group of like-minded kitesurfers from all over the globe for 7 days and ride from morning till sunset in butter flat lagoons and crystal-clear waters, visiting new islands and sites every day!

The wind conditions here are the best in Egypt! With reliable and constant winds generally, you can add another 3-5 knot on top of the shore-based forecast.

The spots are suitable for all levels. Beginners can practice and ride safely in the shallow sandy areas whilst more advanced riders will be able to choose between the flat-water lagoons or venture a little further offshore into deeper waters. There will also be the opportunity to make a downwinder from one island to another.

However, in the unfortunate event of no-wind days, there’ll be plenty of no-wind activities to keep the fun going! These include SUP, Snorkelling and even wakeboarding!
Our fully trained crew will be on hand to cater to guests onboard needs. In addition to providing beach assistance, they also take care of in-water assistance with the rescue boat when needed.

Arrival day

After meeting you at the airport we will head straight to the boat, where our crew will welcome you on board and give you all the information needed for the coming week. The boat is moored in Hurghada Marina, a 15-minute drive from Hurghada international airport. We will spend the first evening on the boat in the marina, where you have the possibility to make some last minute shopping.

Safari day 1

We will be leaving the marina early morning and head north to reach our first spot for a warm-up session, followed by a freshly made lunch buffet prepared by our excellent chef onboard. The first spot is ideal for practising if you haven’t ridden for a while.

Safari day 2

An early bird session is possible for those waking up with the sun. For others on the kitesurfing safari, the day is starting after the delicious breakfast buffet. We are staying at the same spot as day 1, a huge butter flat lagoon with shallow water and a white sandy bottom.

Safari day 3

Depending on the level of the riders we may head further north to more rural and lesser explored spots. The kite spots here are incredible. The wildlife remains wild and rarely disturbed. There is the chance to spot dolphins, a variety of fish and birds nesting on the islands.

Safari day 4

On day 4 we will head over to our next spot; another beautiful island. The wind is usually much stronger in the sea compared to the shore, which almost gives us guaranteed wind during the week. However, in the case of a no wind day, we will have fun wakeboarding and snorkelling around the beautiful reefs here.

Safari day 5

We kite all morning and after the lunch break, you have the option to make a downwinder to our next spot by kite. This is truly an amazing experience and challenge! We will follow the safari boat by kite to the next island, whilst the rescue boat will be beside us at all times.

Safari day 6

Our cruise in the Red Sea will be coming to an end but first, we will enjoy a whole day of kiting before heading back to Hurghada marina. Finally, your last night will be spent here onboard the boat where you can also discover Hurghada’s nightlife and restaurants.
