During a recent trip to Aqaba, we were lucky to take our first diving classes at the Extra Divers Aqaba dive center. I was very nervous about diving because of claustrophobia, but our instructor, Valerija, was a gem. It is obvious that she is not only experienced and very knowledgeable, but she also has a passion for opening up the underwater world to students. It shows in her teaching style - clear, positive, and patient. She led me step by step from just putting on the mask and regulator and dipping my face into the water to finally diving around reefs 18 m down and completing both the Scuba Diver and Open Water Diver certifications. I wouldn't have thought that possible when I first entered the water! Our final dive was down to a ship wreck, very exciting.
The care that management takes is also obvious in the center itself. The scuba gear is in excellent condition.
