Enjoy Sailing the Nile with Captain Safy

One of Aswan, Egypt’s most experienced felucca (sailboat) captains invites you to join him and explore the ancient secrets of the Nile. Relax as you connect with history and take in the beauty of nature at the Nile’s first cataract.

“We enjoyed visiting the pyramids and Egyptian museum, but sailing the Nile with Safy was simply amazing. We had just gotten engaged two days before on the “Bridge of Love” in Cairo. We loved the quiet time on the boat to dream about our future together, talk through some plans and just breathe in the fresh air of Aswan.” — Emileigh and Jacob, USA

“We were astounded by the variety of birds we saw. The herons, ibis, kingfishers, egrets and so many others were fascinating. We left with plenty of good photos. Safy impressed us with his knowledge of the archeological sites and history of the area. In short, highly recommended!” — Paul & Sandra, Canada

“I am so glad we chose a package that included food! A casual lunch on the water was delightful—a great memory from our trip to Aswan. The fresh Nile fish and Egyptian stew, mmm!  I left with the recipe.”

— Peter & Christine, U.K.
