They made us a good price, because we were with 3 and it was off season. Everything went well, the picked us up on time and gave us good gear. We made 2 dives on real wonderful spots. We had a very pleasant day.

I've dived with the RSDC on many occasions and have found the operation and staff of the highest caliber. The mix of professionalism & craic is spot on. I've dived both professionally and on dive holidays with the RSDC and it's always a pleasure. The staff, not to forget Matt (since left) Hooch (the lucky 1' to spot all) the... More

Highly recommended! We looked around and this is by far the best dive center in Aqaba. The dive rate and room rate is cheaper (personally I think better) than Arab Divers. Rooms are super clean and well maintained. We stayed in room 8 and it had a partial sea view which was lovely. Diving was a blast with a seasoned... More

A colleague took me diving here a year ago and I have since come back for dozens of dives with friends and family. The two brothers at the Read Sea Dive Center, Abduallah and Omar, taught me most of what I know about diving, having trained me in open water diving, night diving, deep diving, boat diving, and certified me...

TL;DR - Nice rooms, relaxed vibe, great staff, not great restaurant, far from Aqaba proper I stayed at Red Sea Dive Center for one night. I'm not much of a diver and Aqaba was mostly a relaxing stopover for me on my way to Petra. The hotel has a pretty relaxed vibe, sometimes almost too relaxed, it was hard to... More

Just completed my rescue diver certification! It's my third PADI certification obtained through the RSDC since I started diving in 2009. Had I learned to dive any place else, I probably would not have continued, but the highly individualized and patient instruction from the RSDC's competent, knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructors turned me into a diving enthusiast and loyal client. And... More

I'm so glad I chose the Red Sea Dive Center for my first scuba experience and OW classes. The Center is extremely comfortable, calm and relaxing, and I was very reluctant to leave. The staff were charming and highly accommodating. Abdullah is an outstanding instructor - I was a little anxious prior to visiting, but I felt entirely at ease... More

The hotel was conveniently located and since the same people who run the Diving center as well, it was convenient to set up the scuba diving schedule. However the hotel wasn't very clean. Room are spacious, but no good restaurants nearby.

I have been to the Red Sea Dive Center over 5 times now, and I can honestly say it is one of those special places you stay where you feel completely at ease. Firstly, the staff. They are kind, honest and very caring. Whatever your needs they will try their utmost to address them and help you enjoy your stay.... More
