We spent 3 days diving in the Bay of Aqaba with Extra Divers Aqaba. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The dive guide, Jason, took the time to make sure that everyone was prepared for the dives and very supportive of me as a fairly new diver. The boat captain was very helpful with equipment and getting on and... More

We went diving in Aqaba and got our diving certificate here. I did not feel very comfortable and was very nervous at first but the crew was very supportive. They really put me at easy. The dives were amazing, we saw so many beautiful things. Excellent end of our holiday.

We have dived in many places and also with Extra Divers before (in Oman) and found them to be excellent. This is also true of Extra Divers in Aqaba. Located just a few minutes from the Radisson Blu Tala Bay hotel you can dive on the house reef without a guide so long as you have a buddy or go... More

Absolutely wonderful experience for a novice like me! They take you out in the boat to the Japanese garden which is massive lovely coral reef. All equipment included and drive you back for 25jd.

We highly recommend this dive center for anybody staying in the Tala Bay area! My friend and me stayed at Radisson Blu Hotel which is just next to the dive center and went snorkelling and diving with Extra divers. It was my first dives after 12 years and I was taken care of very well and made feel comfortable by... More

we did 5 dives, all of them were well organized and great. The staff, especially Jason, Freddy and Paul did an excellent job. The dive sites are ok, but not as good as for instance in the Indian Ocean. However, they are ok, and additionally, there is also a wreck (Cedar Pride) and a US tank. Overall great diving experience... More

I did two dives with Extra divers. One reefdive and one dive at Cedars Pride. It was low season, so they took me diving, and my girl snorkelling while I was diving. Price is affordable, especially since we were the only divers during this off-season time.

Hi Jokaim, Many thanks for your review a we are very pleased to hear you enjoyed both the diving and snorkeling with us at Extra Divers, it is off season at the moment but we are still diving every day so it is sometimes possible to have a "private guide" which we also enjoy. More

I haven't dived for 7 years and my son of 10 years tried for first time. We had a crash course and then did a small dive. Great instructor and the perfect place for a test dive.

Set up a last minute snorkel excursion with the help of a nice local. Nice bar and restaurant on the premises while you wait. You probably could do some nice snorkelling right off the beach as well, although we did not. It is only a five minute or so boat ride to the dive location we went to. The water... More
