“Great Dive Center!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I booked via email and didn't get a response. Telephone call with Tina assured me that she did respond and the trip was good to go...pickup at the Hotel nearby at 9. 9 came and went and no pickup but the shop was nearby so I walked there. Arrived to find Tina with a friendly welcome. From that point forward, the Dive Center turned out to be one of the friendliest places I have been to. Tina was great and even brought her computer to show me the response was indeed sent (I believed her before seeing the proof). More importantly, once onboard the Sea Breeze, Susan took over as divemaster and could not have been more friendly, informative or supportive. She explained the dive, where we would go and what to look for. Underwater, Susan was attentive and a terrific guide, pointing out items of interest. Shadi was more laid back but once I engaged in conversation, he was as friendly and informative as he could be. The entire staff deserves kudos. A great trip and I recommend the dive shop to anyone going to Aqaba!

“good boat, nice crew & excellent equipments”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

we booked via phone with Shadi who came and picked us u p from the hotel on time, we got all the equipments we need, it was all high quality, we set off around 10 am, there are all kind of refreshments on board. you can discuss which location you'd like to dive in.

the lunch was really good, barbecue chicken, kebabs & salads.

After all it was a very good experience. I definitely will dive with Ahlan scuba diving again.
I travel a lot, Aqaba has one of the best waters I have seen.. .

“A Special Thank You To Tina”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I panicked as soon as I got in the water to snorkel, like hyperventilating, I-feel-like-I'm-going-to-die panic. I got back to the boat and thought that I just wouldn't snorkel the rest of the day. Tina offered to swim with me, holding my hand for both of our trips. Her kindness and willingness to take me around didn't just make it easier, but actually made the entire trip for me - I wouldn't have gotten back in the water without her help. Then, to make sure that I got enough time in snorkeling, she had Shadi, another diver with the centre, take us out by jet ski so that my husband and I could see the wreck and not get tired.

Tina was extremely helpful in getting everything set up in the first place - it's really nice when people respond to e-mails, especially since we had a hard time calling them initially.

My husband and I are definitely planning on coming back to Aqaba and I'm now hoping to learn how to scuba so that I can see some of the amazing things that Shadi (an amazing underwater photographer) took photos of during his dives while we were snorkeling.

Thank you, Ahlan Aqaba! It was a great trip.

“Perfect Day”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We dived with them in April and it was a wonderful experience. We had just completed our Open Water certification so we were almost beginners. The team was great and friendly and everything was very well organized. We felt very safe and confident with them. Our guide Susanne was great and made this an amazing experience. Would love to dive with them again some day, higly recommended.
