Over 30 dive sites along the Jordanian coast are visited by Arab Divers.
Aqaba's dive sites are all accessible as shore dives.
The diving in Jordan here is comparatively easy.
There is usually no current or it's very minimal.
The water is warm and the visibility generally exceeds 20 meters.
There are no aggressive creatures.
Arab Divers stresses the need to be an environmentally sensitive diver.As such, you should maintain neutral buoyancy to avoid coming into contact with the reef. This is for your sake as well as the sensitive coral. Collecting items from the red sea, whether living or dead, is also frowned upon.
If you are keen on or have ever wanted to try it, the Aqaba Gulf is the perfect spot and courses are available.
Ship wreck diving Aqaba's most famous dive sites is the Cedar Pride, a Lebanese freighter sunk in 1985 at a location chosen by Jordan's King Abdullah II. It now hosts a rich variety of hard and soft corals. At a maximum depth of 25 m, it provides a wreck dive that divers with all levels of experience can enjoy.
Tank wreck diving in 1998, King Abdullah II was also responsible for sinking an anti-aircraft tracked vehicle (the Tank) with tracks at only 6 m. The tank is a wreck that snorkellers can also enjoy.
