The Speed Ferry from Hurghada to Sharm-El-Shiekh
The Speed Ferry from Hurghada to Sharm-El-Shiekh Reviews
Dec 22, 2007
The ferry from Hurghada to Sharm-El-Shiekh costs 250 Egyptian Pounds (about $45 US as of 12/07). While I bought my tickets the day before, tickets could still be purchased before boarding. Overall, the ferry is very comfortable and there is plenty of room. Movies are shown during the trip and there is also a small snack bar.
During my voyage, the seas were extremely rough and it felt like amusement park ride a few times. The children in front of me seemed to be enjoying I believe that due to the rough seas, we arrived at Sharm-El-Shiek later than we were scheduled to arrive.
As far as passenger ferries, I can only compare this experience to the Hong Kong ferry system, which is not only much more affordable but better ran as well. Nevertheless, given the options in Egypt of going from Hurghada to Sharm-el-Shiekh, the ferry is the fastest and most affordable way to travel.
