I was staying at the Tala Bay resort for 3 nights and was able to enjoy 3 dives: Yellowstone South (Abdul), Kiwi (Vero) and Cedar Pride (Abdul). The staff was friendly, welcoming and professional. Equipment was in great condition. I am a solo female diver (52 years old) and was able to join right in and feel comfortable with the... More

My last dive was two years ago, and this was the first time I've tried diving alone. The staff at Extra Divers was amazing. Rami and Abed made me feel safe and at home. They took great care of me, and two of my very nervous friends. Diving in the Red Sea is beautiful and this location offers many great... More

We spent 3 days diving in the Bay of Aqaba with Extra Divers Aqaba. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The dive guide, Jason, took the time to make sure that everyone was prepared for the dives and very supportive of me as a fairly new diver. The boat captain was very helpful with equipment and getting on and... More

We went diving in Aqaba and got our diving certificate here. I did not feel very comfortable and was very nervous at first but the crew was very supportive. They really put me at easy. The dives were amazing, we saw so many beautiful things. Excellent end of our holiday.

We have dived in many places and also with Extra Divers before (in Oman) and found them to be excellent. This is also true of Extra Divers in Aqaba. Located just a few minutes from the Radisson Blu Tala Bay hotel you can dive on the house reef without a guide so long as you have a buddy or go... More

Absolutely wonderful experience for a novice like me! They take you out in the boat to the Japanese garden which is massive lovely coral reef. All equipment included and drive you back for 25jd.

we did 5 dives, all of them were well organized and great. The staff, especially Jason, Freddy and Paul did an excellent job. The dive sites are ok, but not as good as for instance in the Indian Ocean. However, they are ok, and additionally, there is also a wreck (Cedar Pride) and a US tank. Overall great diving experience... More
