Owner description: Sinai Divers Aqaba is located directly on the beach of the 5 star Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba. Divers staying in other hotels will be picked up on a daily basis.The center offers all kind of diving and snorkeling activities: house reef diving, single dive trips by speedboat as well as full day trips on M.Y. Harmattan, the most comfortable and luxurious dive boat in Aqaba.The instructors teach the full range of diving education from Bubblemaker for the youngest to Dive Master Courses for the more experienced.Also non-divers have plenty to do, with boat cruises, jet-skis, banana boat, water ski, wake board, and the opportunity to dive the red sea without touching the water, on-board a semi-submersible.

Last week I was lucky to dive with sinai divers.
Fortunately it was a week where there were not many guests so I was lucky to dive more relaxed with most of the dive guides.
sinai divers were very open for my specific requests.
I will need to come back again as we had a nice big rainshower in the middle of the week that troubled the water a lot and therefore many dive spots were not accessible.
The day after the rain, they were very honest to say that the visibility wouldn't be good for the next week so that certain divespots were not open. I know that other dive centers wouldn't do this just to get your money.
The house reef is very well worth to go on, beautifull and a whole lot to see. Lots of eels, juvenile fish, nudibranches, lionfish, stionefish etc.
The Cedar Pride is a beautifull shipwreck with the mast as top of the glory to look at. This ship should be treated with the greatest care the next years...
Thanks a lot to Kareem, Leo, Vero, Lieven (for talking to my little girl), Ivana, Rabei and all the others I forget and I hope to come back again.

Dear Jeroen

Thank you so much for taking your time to write about our dive center. We are very happy you enjoyed the diving and your vacation. This was really unlucky with the rain, but unfortunately this is one of the few things we cannot influence. Our biggest goal is to see our divers happy even if this means, that we have to tell them about bad conditions. We really hope to welcome you and your family again here in Aqaba and to show you all the other beautiful dive spots :)

Sunny regards from Aqaba,
your Sinai Divers team

As a family of 4 with different amounts of diving experience, we wanted to see Red Sea corals and fish away from crowds, and Sinai Divers delivered superbly! Ivana dealt with our initial email correspondance and set us up for 5 days of diving. We arrived to find a really spacious and well organized dive centre very conveniently within the grounds of the Movenpick hotel. Our first dive was with Leora on the house reef off the beach, which was very good for coral and fish, but a little noisy overhead with jet skis! We then had alternate days diving from the speedboat ( 10.30 and 14.30 outings) or the large day cruising boat ( 08.30 start) . Veronica led us on these dives, and we made 3 visits to the spectacular Cedar Pride wreck, covered in all kinds of corals especially around the photogenic crows nest and masts, and the other dives on the various reefs along the coastline. This is a photographer's paradise with great viz, uncrowded small group diving, and the reefs in immaculate pristine condition and full of fish and macro life. The Tank is also an interresting novelty dive not found elsewhere. Both speedboat and large day boat can visit mostly the same dive sites, but we would highly recommend the large day boat for relaxing days out with 3 dives available on a beautiful spacious boat with tasty lunch and cold drinks, and a boat crew who could not have been more attentive and helpful ( I've never had anyone help me with putting on fins before ! ). Equipment was all in good order, safety clearly high priority. We will be looking to come back as soon as we can!

My entire experience with Sinai divers was nothing short of exceptional from start to finish. Having dived with their sister outfit in Dahab previously, my expectations were high. Initial emails were responded to promptly and I got a really good deal by prepaying for one of their Dive Box packages (highly recommended as you can save a lot of money).

The centre is run impeccably and it shows in its presentation, the care and attention of it's staff and in the quality of their equipment. There are large clean bathrooms, changing rooms with showers, cleaning pools for all the gear and a lovely cool office / classroom. Safety is the number one priority (something I very much look for in a dive centre) and Sinai Divers ticked all the boxes. Their staff and crew are like one happy family and clearly love and are passionate about their jobs. Dive briefs were clear, concise and informative and the diving itself was wonderful - particularly on the house reef. I could not recomment Karim, Rabei, Veronica and the rest of the team more highly and I look forward to coming back to dive with them again soon.

We spent 5 days diving at Sinai Divers at the beginning of January. The best thing was, that it was so close to the Mövenpick Hotel. So we could spend time with the children at the hotel pool, and going for a dive I was just two hours away from the family. The staff at Sinai was very friendly and professionell. They had two dive trips per day, only the variety of diving location seemed to be somehow limited. A great opportunities to go diving if you travel with small children.

Thank you so much for taking your time for a review. We are very happy you enjoyed your dive experience with us. With 26 km of coast line Aqaba counts around 20 dive sites. We try to offer our divers a nice variation of the dive sites whereby we guide you first through the most beautiful sites :) We will be very happy to welcome you again here in Aqaba and to show you all other dive sites :)
