Comment ça fonctionne?
How is it joining as a solo traveler ?
when we first started this project, we thought that most of our trips would be group booking & private charters. on the contrary more than 70% of our guests turned out to be solo travelers.
Being on a tight space with strangers would feel bizarre at the beginning but it always turned out to be epic and most of our guests became friends afterwards.
it is just magical how sharing the same passion with other people can be!!
how is the food ? can you accommodate special diets?
we have a cook onboard providing the 3 meals and the snacks , our chefs are so experianced with sail boats , you will be amazed with their outcome from such a small space!!
ofcourse we can accomodate
In Egypt and the Maldives we operate in remote areas so specific diets need a previous notice in order we can meet them.
how to get there?
Hurghada international airport 4-5 hours from Hamata port.
Marsa alam international airport 2.5 hours from Hamata port.
Male international airport is just few minutes from the marina.
Aziab is not a travel agent , we are a yacht management certified company. flights is not in our scope but our team is always available for advises . few of our partner agents can help organizing and booking the flights . Enternal transportation can be managed and organized by our side upon requests.
who are the crew?
we usually go with the 3 crew in Egypt a captain, chef and a snorkel guide with emergency first response qualification following the Egyptian standards.
In the Maldives we sail with a captain and a chef always , and a guide depending on the route and the program.
In Greece we mostly sail with a skipper only , but a guide or a chef can be organized upon requests.
How is the weather?
The southern Egyptian Red Sea is great all year around, the minimum water temperature usually never drops below 22 degrees between February and march with air temperature lows never dropping under 16 degrees in the same period, while you would get plenty of sun light throw out the day and high temperature reaching around 25 degrees in winter months. Summer is pretty hot but usually dry with temperature reaching the higher end of the 30s during the day and the mid 20s during the night, water temperature between July and September is usually around 30 degrees!!
in between the summer and winter seasons it's the perfect weather conditions but it bring the crowds to the sea too!!
Maldives has 2 main seasons the rainy season between may to october and the dry season between november and april.
in the rainy season there is a fair chance that it doesnot rain the full day but just an hour or two of showers .
the dry season is usually hot and humid with plenty of sunshine!!
throughout the year water tempreture is around 29-30 degrees.
what to bring?
A small backpack or a small bag
sunglasses , towels , sunscreen .
a light jacket between November and April .
in Egypt , the boat is working on solar power , large electronic devices can not be charged onboard .
Is it a rough sail?
sailing is our way to reach and observe and enjoy unique nature but it is not the main objective of our trips.
in the Red Sea we usually cover 50 nautical miles through out the trip which makes more or less 6-8 hours of sailing through out the whole trip . we spend most of our trip in satayah dolphin reef since this is the highlight of the area . together with hamata islands, abu galawa reef , satayah they are perfect mooring areas , the reefs makes a perfect shelter for the boat making the experiance very relaxing and comfortable. The wind in this area of the red sea is usually between 12-18 knots , rarely exceeding 23 knots which makes a very nice breeze in the hot days , allowing us to sail without compromising comfort on the boat.
In the Maldives most of the sailing is done inside the atolls which protects us from the high ocean waves , actually it is usually flat , crossing between one atoll and another happens few times through the week but usually just for few hours each time. Maldives rarely experience any high wind with wind speeds under 10 knots through out the year.
on the other hand be prepared to cover a lot of nautical miles as the sailing area in the Maldives are much bigger , sometimes we do more than 300 nautical miles per week!! all in crystal clear waters!!
