Aqaba is the southernmost city in Jordan and home to the only port in the nation. We are blessed with 27 km of Red Sea shoreline, plenty of coral and amazing dive sites, and amazing weather year-round. Not only that, but Aqaba is also part of the Golden Triangle, a tourism mecca with world-famous sites including Petra and Wadi Rum. Combine that with superb diving and you have a great place to relax and have a great time!
Deep Blue Dive Center
Deep Blue Dive Center is conveniently located in the Tala Bay Resort in South Beach. It takes less than a minute to walk to the shore for diving or snorkeling. There is a bar in front of our center where you can get cold drinks and order a bite to eat. It is easy to get to our dive center from any of the local hotels. You might also want to stay at Tala Bay Resort, Grand Tala Bay Resort, or the Movenpick Tala Bay.
How to get here
Please note that we are located inside the Tala Bay Resort so you must drive to the entrance and let security know you are diving with Deep Blue. Then you will drive down to the first circle and turn right. You can park in the Beach Club parking lot straight ahead. Walk through the Beach Club down the stairs past the pool. You will find us on the beach near H&S Watersports.
Must Visit Attractions
We are in Jordan’s Golden Triangle, an area in south Jordan filled with startling contrasts.

Petra is an ancient city that has been around since 312 BC. It is one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. Ancient temples and tombs dot this city have making it is a great place to explore, hike, and take photos.
Don't miss Petra and Wadi Rum!
A great way to experience Aqaba is to spend several days diving with Deep Blue and then ending your time on land at historical Petra and magical Wadi Rum. Both these attractions are 1-2 hours away from Aqaba. Instead of paying entrance fees for these sites, sign up for the Jordan Pass and get your visa and entrance fees for a great price. We recommend the Jordan Wanderer if you plan on spending 1 day at each attraction.
