My dive-trip to Aqaba, Jordan 2012
I visited Jordan with my family last November. What a beautiful country, what friendly people! Jordan was really worth the visit. Great diving too, warm clear waters and colourful reefs right at the northern end of the Red Sea.
There’s a sunken tank near the Seven Sisters site. Nice easy dive from the shore, not too deep, so we had plenty of bottom time, and there’s lots of marine life to see!
One of the most famous sites in Jordan is ancient Petra, the amazing Pink City high up in the desert mountains.
Aqaba is Jordan’s only seaside resort, and it’s situated in the very northern end of the Red Sea, next to Eilat in Israel. There are many wonderful sites for diving and snorkeling in the clear, warm waters just off the coastline between Aqaba and neighboring Saudi Arabia. Most of the dive sites are easily accessible directly from land, so for the most part there’s no need for a boat, making the dive-trips easier and also less expensive.
I did my dives with Ahlan Aqaba Scuba Diving Center; great service and nice, easy-going staff. Miss you guys already!
Fact: The population of Jordan is 6,5 million, population of Aqaba 95,000
