and I do not mean the underwater world which is great even at shallow depths also for experienced divers, nor the dive guide who was super friendly but I mean the accomodation and equipment. There were no facilities on the beach to change which is not pleasant for a woman on any location in the world and certainly not on... More

Nabeel and his team make diving in Aqaba a dream. The facilities are great, the team super, and the dive sites are beautiful - and transport and easy access from Aqaba hotels means that you can combine diving for one or more members of the group with a day at the pool/beach/snorkelling for non-divers ... There are two swimming pools,... More
