Owner description: In 1964 Ahmed Qatawneh became the first Jordanian diver and in 1975 he became the first Jordanian Diving Instructor. In 1998 he established the Aqaba International Dive Center. Now in the hands of his son Mohamed we have a family run Dive Center offering diving courses to certify beginners as well as higher certification levels of PADI & SSI. We are still one of the best Dive Centers in Aqaba guiding and supervising certified and non-certified divers to the best dive sites that Aqaba has to offer. Our priority is to provide fun filled dives with above all strict safety precursors. Your money is not our main goal, it is your wide smile at the end of our dives together which is what we love to see. Our prices are always acceptable and suitable for all standards of a diver’s budget. We invite you to come and dive in one of the longest running Dive Centers in Aqaba and write on this website about your wonderful experiences in our humble Dive Centre. We hope to see you soon and we wish you a beautiful stay in Aqaba!

“Hands down, most professional dive shop in the Middle East”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

I stumbled upon the Aqaba International Dive Center almost by accident, as it is a bit back from the main street and the view is obstructed. But it was a real pleasure. The Dive Master, Mohammad, was one of the nicest people I've ever met. There is a bit of history with this particular dive shop as well; his father is a world famous diver who knew Jacques Costeau. The staff were friendly and professional. The shop was exceptionally well-maintained and stocked, and the dives were incredible. The staff knows all the little secrets to be had in the Gulf of Aqaba and it was a real treat. Close to all the hotels downtown (walking distance). If you're in Aqaba, don't miss diving with Mohammad and his team !

“Proffessional diving”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We really enyoed our diving in Aqaba. The divecenter is perectly located within walking distance from the Mövenpick hotel (they do have pickup) and with very reasonable prices. The staff was professional both on land handling the equipment and service and in the water with long nice and safe dives. Our divemaster Kris was very responsive to our familys different experience and needs. Of course always with a smile in his face. Would highly recommend this dive center.

Professional staff, good quality equipment, knowledgable dive master, organised and safe dive practises. Were able to accommodate our requests at short notice and even emailed photos of our dive to us afterwards. Would highly recommend. Amongst the best dives of my life.

They picked us up at the hotelbeach with a boat and we had berhaps an hour by sea before we arrived at Japaneese garden. It was a nice experience and the lunch on board was good.
