We're a couple in our 60s who fancied trying diving. We couldn't have chosen a better company. The people were friendly, reassuring and professional. I needed quite a lot of help which was given generously. We shall be back.

Excellent operation here in Aqaba. I came for some technical wreck diving with my girlfriend and the service was fantastic. The owner Rod greeted us warmly and so did all in the center. Our guide Huw, was fantastic, he told us the histories of the wrecks and knew the ships inside out and out. While we brought our own equipment,... More

I booked a full day diving november 2014 and a subaquatic camera. We had a nice day diving with competent dive masters and instructor. But, the camera wasn't there. The worse thing is that it was not clear till it was too late to change diving agency. I felt (and still feel) very disapointed. The instructor had a camera and... More

25 C water temperature, 22 dive spots, 1 boat and real great fun! Already the first contact to Aqabadivers was a very pleasant one, when I contacted them per e-mail from home. They replied in super short time and gave all the information I was looking for. As we did not know at that time, which hotel we will stay,... More

As novice divers, we couldn't have asked for a better experience! They are serious about their diving and safety, but know how to relax and enjoy the experience. The crew and guides were fantastic, the diving was amazing, and lunch was delicious. We can't wait to come back! Thanks to Amjad, Omar, Samer, and the rest of the crew! Natalie,... More
