Each week there are three fast ferries between Sharm El Sheikh and Hurdghada. The crossing takes just 1.5 hours and costs 40$. Tickets can be purchased from tour operators and travel agencies all over Egypt (although you may be charged a commission), or alternatively through the Red Sea Jet offices in Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh. Travelling across from Mainland Egypt to Sinai in this manner can be very time effective. The same journey by bus would take a minimum of 12 hours. If you want to see Sinai and the ancient monuments of Upper Egypt in a short period of time then crossing the Red Sea this way is almost essential. See recommended travel itineraries.

If you have plans for onward travel to Israel or Jordan you can feasibly make the journey fromHurghada to the Taba or Nuweiba in 4-5 hours (delays not withstanding).

Arrive at the port in plenty of time (recommend 1 hours prior), and as always in Egypt be prepared for delays.
