We have been using Sea Star divers for more than ten years. Their instructors are knowledgeable, patient and very experienced. Our child learnt with a bubble dive aged 8, then did the PADI Open water aged 10, and the Advanced Open water aged 12. Now they are hooked! As well as the dive facilities and kit rental, there is also a seawater pool, enclosed private compound for sunbathing and a snack bar with alcohol for sale. If you snorkel the Al Cazar reef is right off the beach in front of Sea star with corals, fish galore and the occasional turtle to be seen. I can’t recommend Sea Star highly enough.

Excellent dives, excellent dive center, excellent guide. We had a wonderful experience at Aqaba Marine P|ark. We did three dives: one of them between war wrecks sunk for the purpose of creating artificial reefs, the second on a large cargo ship wreck and the third one in beautiful coral garden.
Visibility was excellent, temperature of the water quite comfortable and very easygoing diving conditions (no current, no waves, not deep, ...). Relatively abundant and varied small marine life and the coral reef very beautiful and in excellent health. Diving was done from shore, from places easily accessible.
We strongly recommend this family owned club, one of the older ones in Aqaba, where the owner has a lot of interesting stories to tell us in between and after the dives.

SeaStar is amazing. I dove with them 4 days while in Aqaba. They are located in the heart of the top shore dives in Aqaba, plus they can arrange boat dives to any other sites in the area. But, what really differentiates SeaStar is the people. It starts with William, the owner. He established one of the original dive operations in Aqaba and has trained many of those who operate in the region. His focus is the customer and he's instilled this mentality in his staff, who are all warm, welcoming, and very kind. They are flexible and just want the customer to have a good, safe experience. I can't wait to dive with them again. Highly recommended!

Very friendly and safe. The attention to us as individuals was outstanding. We discussed where we wanted to dive each day, and Thaer, the dive instructor made it happen. This dive school really is a gem and we can’t recommend it highly enough.

I have done 3 dives already each for 50 to 60 minutes in different locations and felt safe with Thaer he’s constantly watching out for you and he’s very instinctive knows when one is u comfortable and constantly asks with sign language that he prepares you with on your first dive with him. The place needs a little bit of renovation as it’s old 30 years. The owner Mr. Sawalha is lovely and welcoming.

What a fantastic experience I've had with SeaStar. I've completed my PADI Open Water and now feel ready and confident to carry on with my SCUBA diving adventures.

From the first day I felt safe and well looked after, and was loaned high quality apparatus. The reef directly from the dive centre is fantastic, with all sorts of marine life to see whilst learning to dive.

The team is made up of friendly and enthusiastic people all with a passion for diving. I was lucky enough to complete a clean up dive as my final dive on my course and found this very rewarding.

If you come to Aqaba to dive, do yourself a favour and choose this club.

We have been diving with Seastar for over ten years now. We live in Amman and often drive down to Aqaba to dive with them. Their outfit is professional, safe and knowledgeable. Our daughter had her first bubble dive aged 8, qualified as a PADI diver at 10 and I wouldn't have trusted her with any other company. William and his team are the best!

Just returned to U.K. after 7 days excellent diving in Aqaba.
This was our sixth trip and every time we dive at SEASTAR.
They are well located and the house reef ‘Cazar’ reef is beautiful. We also dived on the Cedar Pride, C130 and Tristar wrecks as well as the vehicles of the military museum and most of the other reefs.
The diving staff are all exceptionally good guides and very safety minded. They and the the non-diving staff pulled out all the stops to make sure that, once again, we had a wonderful time.
Highly recommended.

Loved this company. The grounds are great - small cafe w/ patio and great food/drink. Huge saltwater swimming pool and lounging grounds for family who aren't diving or for taking a break between sessions. Friendly and very competent staff w/ great English skills. Equipment was in good condition and every size available.

The coral reef right off the beach was one of the best I've ever seen - better than my dive in Tahiti! So many varieties of healthy colorful corals and all the creatures that go with that. highly recommend!!

The house reef ot Aqaba sea star diving is one of the best in Aqaba. Sea turtles! Beautiful coral, lots of fish. The club is lovely, private pool, good gear, nice and professional guide, price is more than OK, close to shore, 1min walk.
