Sharm el Sheikh Cruise Port Tours

4 Reviews
Sharm el Sheikh Cruise Port
Sharm el Sheikh lies on the tip of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, where the Gulfs of Aqaba and Suez meet the Red Sea. Rapidly growing in popularity with tourists, it is one of the most extraordinary diving destinations in the world. In addition to cruise ships, the port welcomes private yachts and sailboats and regular ferries to and from Aqaba and Hurghada.

How to get to Sharm el Sheikh

The port is located on the southern side of town, about 4 kilometers from Old Sharm and 10 kilometers from the tourist hotspot Na’ama Bay. No public transportation connects the port with the city and taxis may not always be available, so the best option to get into town may be a shore excursion or other transportation offered by your cruise ship.

One Day in Sharm el Sheikh


Diving is the primary attraction in Sharm el Sheikh, but there is plenty to occupy the non-diver. Possible activities include snorkeling, horseback riding, quad bike riding, parasailing and camel trekking.  Just south of the city you will find the Ras Mohammed National Park, which is a wildlife haven known to have some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world.

You might also consider a day trip to Mount Sinai and the Monastery of St. Catherine.  The mountain is thought to be where Moses received the Ten Commandments and hiking to the top (about 2-3 hours) will reward you with incredible views across Sinai.

For a more relaxing experience in Sharm el Sheikh, you might just spend the day around town, checking out the Bedouin handicraft markets or relaxing on the beach.

Port Information

There are no exchange facilities, ATMs, phones or internet access at the port. While the official currency is the Egyptian pound, most tourist stores will readily accept US dollars and possibly British pounds and Euros as well. The official language is Arabic and while English may be spoken by many in the tourism industry, it is not common among taxi drivers.
