Kite & Sail
Something a bit different from the classic kitesurfing safari. This epic 2 day/1 night adventure takes you sailing on a beautiful yacht bound North to one of the Red Sea’s best kitesurfing spots.
You will learn the ropes and be part of the skipper’s crew, sailing to Tawila Island to enjoy 2 unique days of kitesurfing on its crystal shores. Our yachts provide full board, with delicious, hearty meals to keep you going on the water. En route back to El Gouna, experience world renowned snorkeling. This trip is ideal for advanced or experienced riders.
280€ per person - 2 days/1 night
This flotilla sets sail from El Gouna’s Abydos Marina, bound North to Tawila Island for a kitesurfing adventure. Learn your way around a yacht and be part of the crew as the skipper shows you the ropes and the basics of sailing.
Tawila Island, a 2 hour journey from El Gouna by yacht, is world renowned for its perfect wind conditions, flat lagoons and beautiful crystal waters. It has become a kitesurfer’s paradise for independent riders, and is where the flotilla anchors overnight.
The zodiac will be used to transport gear and guests to and from the island and serve as a rescue boat while you enjoy some of the best kitesurfing conditions that the Red Sea has to offer.
You’ll have two days and one night here, so there’s plenty of time to kite, snorkel and bask in the sun. The local fishermen often pass by and provide a delicious fresh fish dinner for all onboard.
The flotilla needs to be back on the shores of El Gouna by sunset the following day, and there is the option of stopping at some stunning reefs for a quick snorkel on the route back.
