Diving/Snorkeling in December: Eilat vs. Aqaba?

First, is it possible to dive and/or snorkle in December in either Eilat vs. Aqaba? If so, which is the better place? What are the primary differences? Recommended sites and companies appreciated. We do not want to do deep dives, no deeper than 15 meters. Thanks, Liz

Given the limited coastal line of Eilat, I would assume that diving in Aqaba is better.

HenkBos,

Unless you had a dive in Eilat, I think your comment is just inacceptable.

I never (yet) dived in Aqaba so I would never dare to say that diving in Eilat is better, and the same applies to you - if you have not dived in Eilat you can't assume that diving in Aqaba is better.

Docterloeb, in Eilat:

* You can dive with the dolphins in the dolphins' reef: http://www.dolphinreef.co.il/

* There are several companies that deal with diving, you can see it on TripAdvisor's Eilat's activities page: tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g293980-Activiti…

I would agree with Henk with the coastline distance. Amos its reality, and Aqaba's coral reef and underwater life is pretty well preserved and known worldwide .

Have a look at this links Liz :
