One of Eilat’s top attractions is taking a delightful cruise on a yacht. Eilat’s Marina holds plenty of yachts offering daily cruises across the enchanting Red Sea gulf and along the maritime border with Jordan. While on board you can pleasantly sit back and gaze over the splendid Eilat Bay and the surrounding Red Mountains.
Most of the morning cruises depart form the Marina at around 10am and reach either Taba, at the Egyptian border, or the beautiful Coral Island, which is further south in the waters of Sinai. Notice that the latter requires a valid passport as it goes into the Egyptian territorial waters. Both cruises usually include a stop for a swim and a full BBQ lunch. There are also some magnificent night cruises, in which the lights of the neighboring Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia are beautifully reflected on the water, providing a marvelous romantic scene.
