The Levant; Syria, Lebanon, Israel

This page very briefly describes the Levant, including Syria, Lebanon and Israel. Risks created by the "Arab Spring" should be checked with UK Foreign Office Travel Advice for each country before visiting for up to date information. Territorial waters (<12nm) along this whole coastline may only be navigated with permission. As a generality, you will usually be required to navigate to a point 12nm off your destination, at right angles to the coast, and contact the authorities by VHF (often OC, Oscar Charlie, or Operational Command).  The Levant countries are worth visiting for their rich antiquities, only lightly visited by tourists, and they are very different from other Mediterranean cruising areas. The harbours are useful stops en route to and from the Suez canal.
