Meenagate Touristic Marine Line

Connecting Egypt and Jordan.

If you're a foot passenger or a cyclist (please let them know beforehand you're coming), you can use the 'Babel' from Meenagate Marine Transport & Water Sports to transport you from Nuweiba to Aqaba and v.v.

Babel fast ferry

Meenagate's fast ferry leaves Nuweiba at 6.00am and the journey takes roughly one hour and thirty minutes. Coming back from Aqaba can be done in one day: the ferry leaves Jordan at 6pm.

How to get a ticket on the new 'Babel' ferry

In the future it's likely that plenty of tour operators in Dahab and Nuweiba will be selling tickets for this ferry, but right now this option is not available.
Instead you can e-mail the helpful staff at Meenagate to make a pre-booking (at least 48 hours in advance). You can then collect your ticket and pay on arrival at Nuweiba Port.
