The sea has year round good visability (15-50 m) and temperatures from 21-29 degrees Celsius. The most dive sites are accessible from shore and some need a boat trip to reach. The Aqaba Marine Park is approximately 7km in length and is located along the southern coast of the Jordanian portion of the Gulf of Aqaba. The diversity of fish is amazing and all the hard and soft corals make the Gulf of Aqaba one of the most popular places to dive. Because of the easy conditions, the diving is suitable for every level. Shallow reef gardens, long drift dives, (deep) wrecks and so much more to discover!
Extensive coral communities in the form of fringing reefs dominate the 7km long marine park coastline. A number of mollusks, echinoderms, algae, amphipods and fish are endemic to the Gulf of Aqaba. The shallow reef structures provide habitats for multitude of reef fish and organisms. The northern tip of the gulf has seen repeated visits of whale sharks, dolphins, barracuda, and jacks.
Most of our diving is shore diving, and we reach our dive sites by car within 5-15 minutes from the dive club. We can make two dives back-to-back, or just one dive and come back to the club. Because of our flexibility, we can adapt our plans most of the times to your wishes. There is also the possibility of making boat dives. These trips are on request. We offer a nice lunch and two or three dives to sites that are non-reachable from shore.
