Excursion & Day Trips

In collaboration with our sister company Aquamarina Tours and Travel , Deep Blue Dive Centre can arrange a wide range of trips for you in Wadi Rum , Petra and The Dead Sea

Wadi Rum

Famously described by T.E. Lawrence as “vast, echoing and Godlike” and often deemed to be one of the most stunning deserts landscapes in the world, Wadi Rum is a nature-lover’s paradise.

Wadi Rum’s beauty can only be described as breathtaking. One of Jordan’s main tourist attractions, the area is spotted with fascinating yellow, white, red and brown sandstone mountains that are cut by wide canyons and unique colorfully decorated geological formations. The landscape is also distinct for its natural delicate arches and bridges, and the mushroom-shaped rock configurations carved and shaped naturally by years of wind and erosion.

Wadi Rum holds fauna and flora both rare and endemic. A greater emphasis has been placed on the Wadi’s fauna after a baseline survey detected the existence of the Ibex, Gray Wolf, Bland ford’s Fox, the rare Red Fox, and the Sand Cat within, poppies and the striking Black Iris, J the area. Rare species of small plants and herbs can be found by the inquisitive traveler. Red anemones, Jordan’s national flower, all grow at will by the roadside and in more quiet reaches. Plants used as herbal medicinal cures by the Bedouins for centuries are found in the mountainous regions.
