This is an 11-hour trip along the 120-mile Suez Canal waterway, connecting the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, from Port Said in the north to the city of Suez in the south. There are no locks – the two seas are at the same level – and the scenery on either side is a stark contrast. The small towns and fertile farmlands of the Nile Delta along the western side of the canal. On its eastern shore is the dusty, rugged desert of the Sinai Peninsula.

Mahmoud El Kady, Managing Partner of BWA Yachting Egypt, explained: “Passing through the Suez Canal has a significant impact on the time and cost of a vessel’s voyage. Accurate planning, early notification, constant monitoring and real cost control are necessary to save time and money.” He continued: “With BWA Yachting’s offices in Port Said and Suez, a Select team monitors the traffic situation 24/7 daily, tracking vessels at anchor and in transit, while our operations team reports and closely monitors until the channel is safely cleared.
