We may visit Aqaba in an upcoming trip in October, but whether we do may turn on the availability and cost of scuba diving -- and the quality of the diving. I have read that there are beautiful coral reefs on the Jordanian side of the Gulf, but no mention of fishlife one can expect to encounter. Does anyone have experience diving out of Aqaba? How does it compare with diving at Sharm (or another, world class dive site)? We have dived at Sharm, the Barrier Reef, and other world class sites in the past. We don't expect Aquaba to be really world class, but we want to know if in fact it really is no big draw for divers!
