Imagine being surrounded by magnificent deep blue tropical waters where marine life is encapsulated by one of the world’s most spectacular coral reefs. Reminds you of a scene from some movie you saw on television, right?
Turn your dreams into reality and experience the tranquility of nature with scuba diving in Aqaba. Travel enthusiasts from all over the world visit Jordan’s mesmerizing city to experience the incredibly intriguing and calm waters of Aqaba.
The city prides itself on hospitality, but amid the global health crisis, lockdowns have restricted tourists from invading their favorite summer getaway spot! This makes it a perfect opportunity for locals to experience the best scuba diving in Aqaba.
Here’s why you should discover the wonders of the aquatic world with local diving, boat trips, and snorkeling in Aqaba!
The Gulf of Aqaba Is an Ideal Environment for Beginners
The incredibly intriguing small coastline hosts more than 23 dive sites, most of which are within the Aqaba Marine Park.
With consistent great weather (never below 20°C even in winters!) for diving, you no longer have to get bored in your houses, waiting for the perfect time!
Jordan is home to over 1000 marine life species, including stingrays, solitary sailfish, eagle rays, turtles, shrimps, frogfish, pipefish, nudibranchs, dolphins, and oh, occasionally, a couple of whale sharks in springtime!
It’s known as a photographer’s paradise as it has perfect visibility all year round for colorful, shallow coral gardens, thriving reefs, shipwrecks, and canyons.
World-Class Waters Close to Home
Certified divers who have invaded the waters of the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, Canada, South Africa, and other fabulous diving destinations worldwide should definitely consider discovering and exploring the remarkable aquatic treasures right where they live!
Preserve the Ecological System with Reef Cleaning and Coral Restoration
It’s the perfect time to be a saving grace for this world amidst the Covid-19 crisis. Even though plastic pollutants and chemical waste has always washed up in the water streams, increased use of masks and other PPE has made debris cleanup dives more crucial than ever! These days many local dive centers, such as Deep Blue, are regularly involved in cleanup dives and they usually allow certified divers to join and dive for free.
Test Your Waters with New Techniques!
Driving with ill-fitting, redundant equipment can have a detrimental impact on your diving experience. Take this opportunity to immerse yourself in new equipment, embracing new recreational scenes, and overcoming challenges to learn new skills.
Make New Friends
Face the facts; your non-diving buddies aren’t interested in dive computers or PADI pro courses in Aqaba. Apart from daily diving to improve skills, it can also help improve social skills! Meet people who share the same passion as you for diving.
Plan night dives, sea-food BBQ parties, and enjoy hangouts with fellow like-minded divers to explore new arrays of local marine life together.
