diving in Gulf of aqaba
We have over 20 sites available here in Aqaba and the majority of them are accessed from shore. Diving is easy and not too deep. Some of the most well known sites are the Cedar Pride, the Hercules C-130, Japanese Gardens, and Seven Sisters. Some of the most hearty corals grow here. The colorful soft corals and hearty hard corals are amazing.
Underwater photographers especially enjoy getting shots of our macro life as well as the huge scuttles we have. In 2019 two new sites were created: the TriStar and the Underwater Military Museum. The museum consists of 30 miliatry relics such as tanks, an ambulance, a military crane, troop carrier, and even helicopters! These artificial reefs help to protect and boost marine life along the 23 kms of our coastline.
The waters in the Gulf range from 21- 27 celcius (72 – 81 farenheit). The waters are quite clear with visibility ranging from 20 to 60 m (66 – 197 ft).
Warm, crystal clear waters. What are you waiting for? Come dive with us!
