I have been diving with Arab divers for a few years by now. Their dive instructors are professional, they have just renewed most of their scuba equipment and their accommodations are clean and comfortable. During my last trip our dive instructor was Omar - I highly recommend him!

I booked a week here last minute as I wanted to get away from city life for a while.
Arab divers dive centre and hotel was exactly what I needed. Basic, clean comfortable rooms at an excellent price, and a very well managed dive centre offering 3 dives daily at one of the many reefs and wrecks along the Jordanian Red Sea.
Obada, the boss is very helpful and will accommodate any special requests you have. I chose for 4 days shore diving, and 1 day on the boat.
A car is helpful for getting into Aqaba town, but you can catch a lift at 4.30 each day with one of the staff. Taxi from town is 6JD.
In summery, it was great.
Cheers guys, I’ll be back (with the kids next time)

If you want best diving experience, clean rooms and good breakfast and most great people and even some kind animals then Arab Divers is the place. Obada, Abud, Corine, Mick and several cuddly cats will make you experience great. We did multiple dives and all of them were great, i would also recommend to take some dives form the boat and visit the Tri Star plane and old port - just amazing. Their equipment is also one of best i ever seen in a diving facility like that. The rooms are big, very clean and you also have a fridge and pot to cook tea or coffee. Breakfast was good and the two guys being responsible for food and cleanliness very nice! So we are all in all for sure coming back! Corine and Obada thanks again!
In regards to COVID - they are respecting all the rules so no worries on that

We thoroughly enjoyed our diving and stay with Arab divers.

We did 4 dives over 2 days, I would gladly recommend diving with them, each dive we had was diverse and interesting. Mick (and also Omar that drove us and came on a dive or two) was entertaining and put us at ease.

I had never shore dived before, and it was tricky putting on fins, and carrying your equipment into the water, as it is rocky. If you have a bad back like me just take it steady and careful.

We had a hire car and drove in to Aqaba for food each evening. Everything is fairly close so even though there is no afternoon/evening food on location (apart from a vending machine) we didn't find this a problem.

We loved the friendliness of the staff, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The only reason it's 4 out of 5 is we found our window didn't lock properly. While we had 0 issues and felt safe, it would have been nice for that to be fixed. We were in room 21.

Dear C W, Thank you so much for your detailed review. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us—and we agree, our location close to the best dive sites in Aqaba is unbeatable. As you mentioned, the City Center is only a 15 minutes drive and taxis are always available. Please take our deepest apologies about the window; your comments have been discussed at length with the front desk and the maintenance staff. It sounds that they were not informed about the repeated malfunction despite the repair during your stay and we noticed only after your check-out that the issue was not solved. It is so important to us that our guest feeling safe and hopefully you will visit us soon again, promise, you can lock the window in room 21 now :-)

We are couple +50, occasional holiday divers. For our last dive trip, we randomly selected Arab Divers, but match was perfect. Starting from prompt replies to email booking inquiries, warm and friendly staff (Carina & Mohammed) at reception. Hotel rooms were clean and tidy. Operation Manager Obada kept everything strictly on eye and running smoothly.

Dive master/instructor team in duty during our visit (Mick, Hani and Omar) was as good and professional as told at Arab Divers Web Pages and numerous previous customer comments in the web. However, our special thanks goes to Omar, who, regardless of his young age has extremely mature attitude and patience to train not so experienced divers.

First week of our 2 weeks vacation we spent diving, second week traveling in Petra and Wadi Rum accommodating in places recommended by Carina. In the end of the trip we returned to Arab Divers, and it was like returning to home.

These people make you feel like being old friend, and those old friends they must have many. We already decided to come back next December, now for 3 to 4 weeks.
We highly recommend Arab Divers for couples, young or old, and families. No matter are you experienced diver, or novice, they treat you as a best friend.

This is a very well run dive centre, with high quality kit and friendly staff. The hotel side is fairly basic but fine for our needs, nice breakfast with european and arabic food to choose from. It helps to have a car to get to town for meals in the evenings but there are taxis too. Use of a kettle for tea/coffee/noodles would have improved our experience but it’s not a dealbreaker.

We did 9 dives over 4 days and had a great time - the guides helped us make sure we visited different sites each time and special mention goes to Mick who was extremely experienced and really went above and beyond to help us get the most out of each dive, showing us all the different kinds of marine life and taking the time to talk to us about future dives and places to visit around the world. He also made sure our log books were signed properly - without him we would have left with only the stamp and no signatures.

All in all we’d definitely recommend staying and diving here!

Dear Jess, Thank you so much for your detailed review, we love to hear when our guest having a great time! Arab Divers is mainly a dive center with Bed & Breakfast and the most famous dive sites are only few minutes away. Mick is proud in guiding different places and introducing interested divers to the unique marine life in the Gulf of Aqaba. Most travelers plan only 1 or 2 dives in Aqaba and missing this opportunity. We wish you fill your logbooks with loads of memorable dives and hope to see you back at Arab Divers.

I spent a week here and I was very well looked after, from asking questions online, the actual diving and hospitality. The room has got all the necessary amenities especially with the affordable price they offer here per night. The dive guide Abdul was very professional and always offer the best diving possible and make sure that safety is paramount. This place is suitable for everyone ranging from the solo traveller to a family, there's things to do for everyone. It is worth spending at least a week here as there's so much to explore locally and in the rest of Jordan.

What a cool experience to dive here in Aqaba! I found them through my hostel.
Hani welcomed me explained all of the procedures in very clear English.
Mohammad led me through the dive and took some awesome pictures, checking to make sure I was okay at each stage. The water is warm and you can see all sorts of cool things under the water.
I can see why people with more time would stay to do their certification here.
