Suez Canal Transit Overview

The Suez Canal is an artificial waterway running across the Isthmus of Suez in northeastern Egypt. It connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Gulf of Suez, an arm of the Red Sea. The canal, about 101 miles long, has no locks because the Mediterranean Sea and the Gulf of Suez have roughly the same water level. Most of the canal has only a single traffic lane, with several passing bays.

An unforgettable experience. Accompanied by another 29 ships. Kept well informed by historical commentary as we went. Lovely weather helped . So many different things to look at which were never boring!
