Also how much are ferries from Hurgarda to Sharm-el-Sheikh please.

Cheapest way is normallly to fly into Sharm-el-Sheikh by charter carrier then go overland. A closer airport would be Amman, but flights to Amman are usually 1.8 to 2.5 times as expensive as flights to Sharm-el-Sheikh. (From Germany 200 EUR vs 500 EUR, similar should be true for the UK.)

There are also sometimes charter flights to Eilat or Tel Aviv (usually in winter), but finding them and getting a cheap ticket is like striking gold. Sharm is a safer bet.

The ferry from Hurgarda to Sharm-el-Sheikh was around 40 EUR one-way in 2005.

BTW, Hurghada itself is one of the ugliest places in the whole world. The only reason to go there is the cheap charter flights to Egypt, the beach and the coral reefs if you are a diver.

The Brothers is an excellent dive apparently. Best in the Red Sea, along with Thistlegorm (top 10 worldwide0 Done 7 of them!
