In order to explore the beautiful diving site of Aqaba, it is a must doing it with Dive Aqaba - owned by charming and professional Ashraf Sulaibi and Rod Abbotson, and managed by Izz : responsible, devoted, professional, friendly... and more positive superlatives you can imagine. The boat is comfort and the team divemasters is helping you with much enthusiasm - friendly and professionalism : Anas, Abass, Huw and Siri.
Every time we (the whole large family) end one safari package, we can't wait for the next one.
With best respect

Our family went on a boat trip with the crew from Dive Aqaba, and it was a very nice experience. We all tried to snorkel, and though we were all inexperienced in the sea, we had fun and indeed felt totally safe. There were no worries about the children either, cause they were constantly watched. The crew is very friendly and easy going, and the food served was delicious. Greatly recommended therefore!

“great fun”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We took 2 dives int he corals and a ship wreck. Loved both of them.

The crew was very professional and fun, and made sure my wife felt at ease (being a new diver, she wasn't to confident before going in but they made her feel quite safe)

“Excelent, safe and professional diving center”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Doing my Padi Advanced open diver upgrade, I got to experience six lovely dives in the red sea. The crew knows the waters well and the diver to divemaster ratio is very good.

The equipment is of good quality and the diveboat is large and stable. The lunches served on board is very good and my overall impression is a dive center that knows whats its doing.

The prices, especially including equipment is very reasonable.

It is a highly recommended experience both for doing courses and general diving.

“great service”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I felt safe and had a great time with the team from Dive Aqaba. I would recommend this center and the diving site in the Gulf of Aqaba.
Good quality of the wetsuits.
