Submarine and cargo ship pass in the Suez Canal

Our Pilot and a rather large tanker passing us!


Ismailia to Port Suez

The pilot came on board about 9:30am and off we went. At 2pm we had to drop anchor for one and a half hours as an American warship and a submarine had to pass and no small boats are allowed on the canal at the same time. They only give the canal authorities 2 hours notice before they arrive.
