Choose Abu Tig Marina over Port Ghalib

I would like to inform the whole community of sailors that you're not welcome in the marina of Port Ghalib in Egypt

We have been in this marina with others boats from TTT Convoy at the beginning of May. We were 5 boats and tried to get discount without success. For 3 boats, regarding the price, we were placed in the opposite side of the marina (it was empty!!) and for each move we had to take a shuttle (and to wait for a course...for free !!)

When we ask for diesel, the price announced was 0.88 US$. The day after when we went to fill our jerry cans, it was 0.98 US$ + 10 US $ to fill the jerry cans and 4 US $ for the customs!!! We tried to explain that to the boss of the marina and we were not really well received.

Take the choice to link Abu Tig marina in El Gouna, north of Hurgada, you're friendly welcome and all facilities.

The Abu Tig Marina can offer you best services, especially for clearance in (the same price as Port Ghalib). You can find everything in Hurgada, you can be delivered into the marina, find restaurants, small supermarket, shuttle to El Gouna, everybody are very friendly, with special price for the TTT Convoy..

No doubt, if you have the choice, don't go to Port Ghalib!!
