Sharm el Sheikh Cruise Port
A resort town in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Sharm el Sheikh offers snorkeling, diving, and desert trips. It is also close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Catherine’s Monastery. Ships dock at the in-town Sharm el Sheikh Port (rather than at a dedicated cruise port), and you may need to tender if another ship is docked.

The Basics
Sharm’s main charms lie beneath the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea. Take to the water at Ras Mohammed National Park, a protected marine area; Tiran Island, which offers a dramatic reef; or at the wreck of the SS Thistlegorm, a World War II–era cargo ship with holds full of motorbikes (which can be explored by scuba divers with advanced certification). Alternatively you can enjoy the desert: Hike through White Canyon and Colored Canyon, brave an all-terrain vehicle adventure or a camel ride, or immerse in bedouin culture at a traditional camp. If you have time, head to St. Catherine’s Monastery, founded in the sixth century, often combined with Mt. Sinai, where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Most Sharm el Sheikh shore excursions are private tours, with pickup and drop-off from the port.
  • While Sharm el Sheikh and the areas immediately around it are considered safe, the US State Department counsels against travel elsewhere in the Sinai peninsula. Stay up to date with the local travel advisories.
  • Bargaining is a big part of Egyptian culture, particularly when it comes to travel, and prices at port can be high. Book in advance for a convenient fixed price.

How to Get to Sharm el Sheikh from Sharm el Sheikh Cruise Port

Whether you’re tendering or docking in port, Sharm el Sheikh’s international harbor is just minutes from the city center. Most shore excursions and private tours include round-trip transportation—fortunate, as local public transport is informal and hard to access unless you speak Arabic.

Port Information

Egyptians in Sharm el Sheikh (and elsewhere) speak Egyptian Arabic. Local signs are written in both English and Arabic, as are street names. The local currency is the Egyptian pound, and both ATMs and money changers are readily available. If you arrive in Egypt via cruise ship for a planned excursion, your ship will take care of the visa formalities.

Sharm el Sheikh Shore Excursion: Private Tour to Ras Mohammed National Park

star-5
Visit Ras Mohamed National Park on an independent, 6-hour shore excursion from Sharm El Sheikh. Meet your guide in port and drive into the park, then explore on your own. Discover ancient fossils, desert flora and enjoy the arid coastal landscape; spot flocks of migrating shore birds, and try to catch a glimpse of the park’s elusive desert foxes and turtles. Pause for lunch in the park’s restaurant then head for the beach to swim, sunbathe or snorkel in the warm waters of the Red Sea.
