Yacht tied up at the pier in the town of Sharm el Sheikh at the Red Sea in Egypt

Yacht tied up at the pier in the town of Sharm el Sheikh at the Red Sea in Egypt

The town of Sharm el Sheikh near the southern portion of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt has a large number of yachts and ships over there, the photo just shows one of these. Sharm attracts a number of foreign tourists, especially from Europe arriving in charter flights. The attractions of Sharm includes great sun, and a number of facilities for scuba diving and snorkeling. We had gone there for snorkeling and the routine started with being taken from the resort to the water, getting safety equipment and the snorkeling gear, getting onto a small ship with other tourists who would be going to the same area, getting food on this same ship, and then reaching the snorkeling points (we reached 3 points) where you can have a lot of help. One of the interesting points about this snorkeling was that the guide told us about some hand signals when in the water, and they covered a number of events, but the most interesting was about when somebody asked as to what happens when they see a shark, and the guide said that in that case, you shout help.
