Fly to Sharm, then take a bus it is easily available... have fun in Egypt
Sure you can do it there is 3 options flight to sharm then a bus to St Cathrine or a morning ferry from HUG to sharm of bus to sharm then to St Cathrine. To be aware there is no public bus from sharm to St Cathrine but there is a daily sharing trips every day from sharm. Mount saini is about 3 to 4 hours up and 3 hours down there is sunset or a sunrise hiking if you gonna do it from sharm it will be sunrise and then you visit the St Cathrine in the way down. Its a hiking and its a really enjoyable you will love it.
Dear Daria,
The best and cheapest way to travel from Hurghada area and regions to Sinay its book trip St.Catrina and Mussa mountain with El Masria (Safir),Natalie tours. Now they have very good offer. Price around 200$ include flight, transportation, lunch, all tickets to historical places.
But... u will go with Russian group. If you are interesting you can contact any representative guide in Makady hotels or me .
I think your best option is a ferry from Hurghada to Sharm - Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday,takes an hour and 30 minutes each way and costs you around 500 Egyptian pounds return. From there take a bus to Santa Caterina - best to book with a tour company - am happy to help put you in touch with a tour company or help you out. You could also fly or take land transport via Cairo but both would be more expensive options for you.

None of the ferry trips will get you there in time to do a sunrise hike up the mountain, so you might need to plan to spend a might in Sharm, if you do that your hotel would be able to help you find a tour bus to Santa Caterina...

You'll love Santa Caterina, you can either hike up the 3500 plus steps or take a camel ride and just climb the last 700-800. What suits you best will will depend on your level of fitness :-)

Have a great time....
