Full description
Leaving Eilat’s northern marina, you will begin your journey by heading southbound on a sailboat. Powered mainly by the wind, the sailboat provides an exceptional experience for everyone. Guided by experienced sailing staff, you will learn the geography and nature of the gulf as well as expert boating techniques. After you anchor in proximity to the coral reef, you can easily jump ship to snorkel and observe the Red Sea’s colorful sea life, cool down in the deep blue water, or chill with refreshments on board. On your way back to the northern marina, you will enjoy beverages and music as you soak in the stunning landscape. This must-see sailing tour takes you into the Red Sea, where you can enjoy the unique contrast between the deep blue sea and the towering desert mountains. Enjoying the rich kaleidoscope of underwater life and sailing on an authentic sailboat is bound to be one of the highlights of your vacation to Israel.

    Very nice 33ft boat in excellent condition. We were able to sail with the jib out on down wind. However, there was quite a bit of wind to be able to take out the main sail, and we couldn't sail going up wind either due to much wind. If you're really looking forward to a "SAILING" experience, be aware. Otherwise, it was a great experience. The skipper took us right outside the Dolphin Beach where we were able to snorkel (they provided the equipment) for about 45' to an hour and then he prepared watermelon. Very nice outing.

    We booked a sailing tour with a snorkeling trip. We got a harbor tour with a sailing boat. Despite ideal conditions, the sails remained packed. We were allowed to swim from the boat in between. There was no explanation and no snorkeling equipment was offered. The advertised snack didn't materialize, but there was an espresso in between. Very loveless and boring event
