We highly recommend this dive center for anybody staying in the Tala Bay area! My friend and me stayed at Radisson Blu Hotel which is just next to the dive center and went snorkelling and diving with Extra divers. It was my first dives after 12 years and I was taken care of very well and made feel comfortable by... More

we did 5 dives, all of them were well organized and great. The staff, especially Jason, Freddy and Paul did an excellent job. The dive sites are ok, but not as good as for instance in the Indian Ocean. However, they are ok, and additionally, there is also a wreck (Cedar Pride) and a US tank. Overall great diving experience... More

I did two dives with Extra divers. One reefdive and one dive at Cedars Pride. It was low season, so they took me diving, and my girl snorkelling while I was diving. Price is affordable, especially since we were the only divers during this off-season time.

Hi Jokaim, Many thanks for your review a we are very pleased to hear you enjoyed both the diving and snorkeling with us at Extra Divers, it is off season at the moment but we are still diving every day so it is sometimes possible to have a "private guide" which we also enjoy. More

I haven't dived for 7 years and my son of 10 years tried for first time. We had a crash course and then did a small dive. Great instructor and the perfect place for a test dive.

Set up a last minute snorkel excursion with the help of a nice local. Nice bar and restaurant on the premises while you wait. You probably could do some nice snorkelling right off the beach as well, although we did not. It is only a five minute or so boat ride to the dive location we went to. The water... More

We stayed at Marina Plaza Hotel and had eight dives with this center. It was fantastic, very well organized and hassle-free. We highly recommend it to anyone who is going to stay at Tala Bay area.

The people of Extra Divers are kind & professional Germans who organise nice snorkeling & diving activities. We called two hours in advance to make a reservation and got free access to the private beach of Tala Bay. An experienced diver handed us professional gear (almost new), and explained very well with a map where we could dive, what we... More

We stayed 4 days in Aqaba and had the chances to make 8 dives with Extra Divers. Wonderful time! My girlfriend did her Padi Advanced course, she was solo with her instructor and really enjoyed it. I joined several german groups on the boat but always with warm welcome. Nice staff, good quality equipment and wonderful dive sites !!!

Very professional dive master. We dived 7 times and they took care that we visited a different site each time. The sites are all quite large and there is a lot to see. Sometimes masses of fish, sometimes large shoals, and two easily accessed wrecks. The boat is small but this isnt a problem as the journeys are very short... More
