Little known day trip to Pharaoh Island

This island citadel of Saladin (1170 AD) reopened in 2012 after 6 years of reconstruction so that might be why I had not read much about it. We took a day cruise from Aqaba with... read more

I have dived in over 16 countries and Sinbad are by far the best dive operators I have used. The staff are excellent - friendly, welcoming, professional, patient, calm, knowledgeable and proficient. I saw them adapt well with both novices and more experienced divers, making the experience for each really good. Time is taken to explain what can be seen... More

My first dive after certifying almost 10 years ago. Very professional. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an inexpensive guided dive. FYI, we brought flippers and masks from the USA just for this dive but didn't end up using them because they come free with the wet suit rental. They recently opened and have new equipment. I can't... More

I and my two kids (14 and 16 years) wanted to try scuba diving for the first time. I arranged with hotel and Sindbad and they had us picked up at hotel and taken to Bernice beach club where we were introduced to scuba diving by instructor. The instructor was really good, giving clear instructions and taught us the basics... More

Very nice club: friendly staff, and very pro instructors. Both my wife and myself have dived 3 times each including a scuba review dive (this one from the shore, the 2 others from the boat). Equipment is very good quality and well maintained. Instructors are very nice and calm, it's good diving in those conditions.

We did several boat trips with Sindbad. All of them was a great experience! Sunset cruise, a snorkelling trip in Aqaba and a boat trip to Pharoah's Island. The food was great, a good combination of different dishes and the staff was very friendly. In short, a perfect activity if you want to enjoy the red sea in Aqaba!

I always heard about the red sea crystal clear water, colored corals and fish but experiencing that was breathtaking….I went on Sindbad discovery Glass bottom boat with lunch and snorkeling….The water is cold only at the beginning but a few minutes you totally get used to it especially while looking at the amazing marine live…..highly recommended

I went on a snorkeling boat trip and pretty much everything went wrong. First of all the wind was too strong, creating big waves and making it very difficult to even swim safely. A lot of good swimmers were in trouble and the whole trip should have been cancelled due to the weather. The worst thing though was that one... More
