Reviews

This kitesurfing holiday from a boat in the Red Sea was very organised by Adventure Sports- the Egyptian crew on the boat could not have been more helpful. The food was excellent. All in all a very enjoyable kitesurfing holiday

FAQs

The yacht trip offers the perfect conditions for beginners and advanced riders, alike. The location of this trip has ideal conditions for beginners for the following reasons: #1 We anchor the yacht in one of the best lagoons for kite-surfing in the world - clear warm water, no beach-goers to worry about,  and plenty of space between the kite-surfers. #2 You get free rescue boat support. There are two boats available all the time to help when you are further out at sea or even close to the beach but lost your board or the kite is in the water and you are struggling. #3 There will be about 20 of us on board with about 5 to 10 beginners. #4 Our instructors only work with radio helmets, so they will guide you in real time on how to improve your posture and riding, thus significantly shortening the learning curve. You can spend more than the cost of this trip on other instructors teaching you something on the beach for weeks, while you can learn with us for 2 days and spend the other 4-5 days learning on your own and making use of the boats when needed. #5 Because of the rescue boats and the ability to anchor at different locations, we ride in all wind directions, thus again making use of all the time you are out there. I am sure you must have had frustrating kite-surfing days when you had to wait for the right wind direction or strength. #6 The wind is much stronger at sea than at the beach. Therefore if Hurghada station is showing 10kts, at see is bout 12 or 13knts. #6 Finally, we will have wing-foil equipment on board and an instructor too, in case the wind drops under 10knts (unlikely).

As long as necessary. They are available as transport boats from the yacht to the lagoon islands and as rescue boats for stranded kiters.

We will roughly know the wind conditions a week prior to the 5th of November and will inform you what kite sizes you should take with you. You can also always rent one on the yacht.

The food is buffet-style. There is a variety of food on board such as fish, chicken, beef, salads, fruits, and vegetables. If you're looking for something sweet, there's a large selection of pastries, cakes and traditional Egyptian and European desserts. 

There will be vegetarian and vegan options available.

Because of the wind, we and the local guides decide on the exact kite safari location only a day or two in advance. We are flexible - after all, we are on a yacht! We will pick the best spots according to the optimal wind conditions so you can get the maximum kite time. The most probable spots are the lagoons around and near the following islands in the Red Sea: Ashrafi, Abou Moungar, Gessum and Tawila.

The boats will be available from dawn to dusk so provided there are good winds and light, you can start riding at dawn.

There are two fees which are not hidden but under the "not included" section on the site... These are compulsory and paid by every person on board, even the children. 

The marina fee is €100 per person and the tips for the crew, the waiters, the chef, the beach boys, the guides and the boat drivers are €80 per person. 

Yes! Just book as many suits and cabins as you need. Spaces are limited though, so hurry - especially if you're a large group.

The average water temperature in the Red Sea is above 20°C. The average air temperature is around 25°C during the day and 16°C at night, meaning the water will feel warm and once you get in, you won't want to get out.
