Overlooking and in close proximity to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Jordan, Taba Heights opts as the ideal luxury destination that enables quick getaways to neighboring countries and cultural sites.
Not only does the Taba Heights Marina make the above possible, but it also offers visitors and sea lovers the chance to explore the azure waters of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aqaba while aboard a luxurious boat.
Granted an International Tourist Marina license in July 2005, the Taba Heights Marina is the first legitimate port of entry in the region. Formerly, in order to sail or cruise Egyptian waters, boats were required to first check in at other, more distant points of entry such as Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada or Alexandria. Now, there is a more localized port that offers maritime visitors’ direct access, entry and the availability to secure moorings, making the Gulf of Aqaba an increasingly appealing destination to sail to.
The Taba Heights Marina currently has approximately 11,500 square metres of water area, with depths of between 2.5 and 3 metres near the main building. The marina can comfortably accommodate up to 50 yachts and provide overnight mooring.
The international marina license also provides the means and opportunity for Orascom Hotels and Development (OHD), Taba Heights’ owning company, to strengthen and increase its marine linkages to its other luxury destinations, including El Gouna and Tala Bay.
Arriving boats are requested to follow the below policies:
- Arrival and mooring requests must be submitted during official working hours to the Marina management 24 hours before anticipated arrival.
- Approval of the request will be provided in writing to each boat for confirmation of the expected date and time of arrival. Submitting the appropriate arrival request form filled out in full will allow the Marina’s authorities to process and return the confirmation letter with due haste.
The Marina operates 24 hours, seven days a week.
