Ferry from Egypt to Jordan

by Solo Female Traveler

Solo Female Traveler has shared her recent travel experience with the ferry from Egypt to Jordan in her blog post of January 25th, 2012:

"Once in Nuweiba, there are three separate ferries which can take you from Egypt to Jordan and back.

1. Charter ferry – This ferry departs Nuweiba every day at approximately 5:00 or 6:00 a.m. You can only get a ticket for this ferry through a travel agency at least 36 hours in advance. The cost is approximately 100 USD. The trip across the Red Sea will take approximately 1.5 hours.

2. Slow ferry – This ferry departs Nuweiba every day at approximately noon, although times vary. Tickets cost approximately 75 USD and can be bought at Nuweiba port. Sailing time is approximately eight hours.

3. Fast ferry – This ferry departs Nuweiba every day at approximately 2:00 p.m., although times vary. On the day I took this ferry, for example, we didn’t take off from the dock until 3:30. You need to buy your ticket at Nuweiba port. I didn’t write down the cost, but it was approximately 85 USD. I tried to buy a return ticket but was told they don’t sell them.

There are small shops at Nuweiba port where you can sit and buy food and drink while you wait for the ferry.

I took the fast ferry, which was very nice, perfectly modern, clean (even the restroom) and comfortable. They serve food and drinks aboard this ferry and do money exchanges as well, although I think the rate is not as good as at the ferry terminal in Aqaba."
