The good:
The location of the diving was good. Many things to see. It is at the south beach area. Most diving companies will take you there. Less expensive than others.
The Bad:
1. Poor time management: The appointment was at 9:30 am, everything was delayed including the arrival of the diving instructor. We started at 11:15 am.
2. Poor diving equipment: The diving equipment appears old. Suits and shoes are torn.
3. Compromised safety: the mouth piece for breathing was damaged and could not stay in the mouth while diving. Some of the belt clips were broken and separating easily. This will explain the cheaper price tag.
The Ugly:
After the negative experience, the instructor admitted that the diving set was faulty but the price is good!

My husband and I are experienced divers who haven't done a beach dive in 15 years and haven't been in the water in over a year. My husband needs extra help, he had a stroke a long time ago but has been diving for 20 years. From the guy who helped fit us in our rental gear at the dive shop to the owner/manager and our divemaster, Saif, this centre could not have been more accommodating. The water was chilly, in the mid-70s, but the dive itself was perfect. We regret not being in Aqaba a little longer or when the water temperature was warmer. We would highly recommend this diving centre to anyone. My husband said it was the best value for the money we've had since arriving in Jordan.

We organised our tour through our hotel (My hotel) and it seemed very reasonably priced. They picked us up, took us to the dive centre and fitted us out. We were reluctant to have wetsuits as the sun felt warm and they said the water was 21 degrees. They packed them anyway, thankfully. When we got to the beach (Japanese gardens) the wind had really picked up and we were grateful for the wetsuits. It was sad to see a fair bit of dead coral but there was quite a variety of sea life. A really great time.

We stayed at the Movenpick hotel in Tala Bay, and we found their dive center, Sinai divers, a bit expensive, so we went to Aqaba to find another one.
We found Mr. Frogman, and i can tell you that was a great experience!.
Omar is a great instructor, so professional, friendly and fun , and he really took a good care of us.(with the permission of his girlfriend, of course!)
We did 2 dive with him, after the first one, i was freezing, (it was in february), and i didn't want to do the second, he gave me time to get warm, brought some really nice and hot tea, and also lend me a t-shirt to wear under the wet suit, i ended doing the second dive, and every thing was just perfect.
He did photos also a video which are all really nice and very well done.
We contract with him the trip to Wadi Rum, and it was all very good organized, and a very nice experience.
I really recommend him!!
Thanks Omar for everything!

Our hotel (My Hotel) organised a snorkling trip for us with Mr Frogman. We got picked up from the hotel, then got the stuff from the center, and then went to the South Beach. We snorkled in two destinations, in public beaches 4&5 to see the underwater tanks and the Japanese Garden. We got clear instructions what to do and where to go.
