Planet Suggested Tour Itineraries In Jordan

Diving In Aqaba

All the dive sites in Jordan are located closely to the shoreline, meaning both boat and shore diving access the same sites. The diving along this coastline is excellent and exceeds other diving in the Northern Red Sea. It is the perfect choice for beginner divers through to the more experienced.

There is some exciting diving close to the Saudi border where you will find deep walls, many of these walls have only just been discovered! Another highlight when diving this area is you will be treated to seeing the 'Cedar Pride', which is well-known as one of the best wreck dives in the Red Sea. Visibility averages around 35-40m throughout the area. During plankton blooms, usually April and May, this may diminish to 10-15m. However, mid summer visibility can extend beyond 50m.

Culture

Jordan is blessed with spectacular natural beauty and copious amounts of historical and archaeological places of interest. From the brilliant Roman site at Jerash, to the sensational rose red city of Petra, the spectacular scenery of T. E. Lawrence Wadi Rum and the outstanding coral reefs of Aqaba - the treasures of Jordan are numerous. All this combined with the people's warmth guarantees that your stay is a truly memorable one. We have a wealth of experience and knowledge in this outstanding diving destination. Come and share in our love for this beautiful country!

Other Activities

The sheer amount of great attractions, excursions and tours in and around Jordan make it a superb destination for divers and non-divers alike. We would urge anyone visiting this fascinating country to consider the many tour options available - at the very least you must do the day tour or Petra!
