Either someone was joking with you or they were referring to the fact that some of the Nile ships have swimming pools but no lifeguard. Lots of people, ourselves included, took felucca sails on the Nile around Aswan, but it was safe, as the sail vessels were large.This was asomething optional, and if you have qualms about sailing, it was not a mandatory event. Forget about stepping foot in the Nile. What is in that water will mess you up a lot more. The Aswan Dam filters out all the crocks from further out the river, but it is the pollution/sewerage/parasites in it that will cause the nasties. Do know too that the river is shallow in many areas and you are quite close to land on both sides of the boat for a lot of the trip.
