Dragonfly Kite Safaris Overview

Dragonfly Kite Safaris: The Ultimate In Kitesurfing Luxury And Adventure

Get ready to experience the greatest kitesurfing holiday of your life—a week of living onboard a luxury yacht and kiting at exclusive island locations on Egypt’s Red Sea.

Your Egypt kite safari vacation starts the moment the plane lands. We pick you up from the Hurghada airport and within 15 minutes you’ll be on our yacht, beer in hand, while we wrangle your bags onboard. When you’re ready, we will escort you to your deluxe air-conditioned cabin, complete with private shower and toilet.

The first night is spent in the harbor, allowing everyone to smoothly arrive and get settled in before the safari launches. Our chef will cook us up a delicious dinner, and then it’s drinks on the deck in the warm evening breeze as everyone gets to know each other before we all call it a night and get ready for our first day of kiting.

After a quick sail north for two to three hours we arrive at the islands and our first kite spot—from that point on, it’s eat-sleep-kite-repeat at some the best kitesurfing spots in the world.

After breakfast each morning, we quickly transport you via zodiac to the kite spot where all of your gear will already be pumped and rigged by our team—within minutes you’ll be on the water, kiting in your private paradise of glassy turquoise water. The locations are all sand-bottomed and shallow—a perfect laboratory for progression, be it learning to kite or fine-tuning your arsenal of tricks. Our zodiacs and beach staff are of course at the ready to assist with launching, landing, or if anything goes awry out in the water.

After a return to the yacht for lunch, you can head back out to kite until sunset or just relax on the yacht—the schedule for the day is yours to choose! Also included in your kite safari is free use of our SUP and snorkel equipment, so if the wind dips down or you want a change of pace you can still get out on the water.

That evening, after a sumptuous dinner, as everyone relaxes on deck and recounts the day’s epic adventure, we check the forecast and make plans for the next day’s destination. Depending on the distance and forecast, we will either sail that night or quickly cover it in the morning. Either way, we will handle everything—all you have to do is eat-sleep-kite-repeat!

The last night is spent onboard the yacht back in Hurghada, giving everyone a chance to wash and pack their kite gear. Then in the morning it’s one final breakfast before we take everyone to the airport or arrange a day of kiting in El Gouna or sightseeing in Hurghada before the flights home. It’ll be an incredible week, one that you’ll remember for long after you’ve arrived home!
