There's a going rate for the 'tip' of USD$10 but few boats got away that cheap.

Her account reminds me you need to get all the knowledge first. It's a great read!
We knew we were going to be rammed so she had a roving fender
We were so over the assholes by then. After Somali Pirates we weren't stupid newbies

Read her report:

Its very detailed. Very good. I had forgotten a lot of stuff in there!
Great description from Nicolle .Thanks Mark

Re: Cost for crossing the Suez Canal from the Red Sea

worrisome updates from noonsite:

Reported by Agent - Prince of the Red Sea:

Port Said has increased the price for the port clearance from 40$ to 652$ for any sailing yacht transiting south bound. Port Said is the only way to go to the Suez Canal, south bound.

I have one boat now arrive to Port Fouad Marina wishing to transit south, but the port authorities are asking for the new rules 88 2018.
Which is the new fees of 652 $ for port clearance.

The yacht was forced to leave the marina in 30 knots of wind at night because he had no money to pay the 652$. The yacht finally went back to the Mediterranean and changed their plans.

The 652 $ is only for the port clearance. For example, yesterday that boat if he allowed for the transit he have to pay:

Suez Canal dues - 400$
Port Clearance - 652$

Total 1052$ for yacht 13 meter, without the agent fees.

Very bad.

For your info. we have no problems in Suez at all for yachts going north bound, still with the normal fees.

So in Port Said now, the cost for all foreign flag yachts from 1 meter to 18 meter - clearance fees 652$.
If over 18 meter - 850$.

Useful as a fireproof bottom paint...
