    See:
    Royal Diving Club: www.rdc.jo
    Dive Aqaba: www.diveaqaba.com
    NEW - Aquamarina: www.aquamarina-group.com

    The Saudi Wall and Cedar Pride Wreck are particularly distinctive dive sites.
    Overall - abundance to see but expensive - 15JD tank, weights; 25JD full equip + lunch + boat charge for full day diving. Shop around and consider staying at one hotel and diving with an alternate PADI centre. Price packages if you're staying for a week (Ultramarina in France, Longwood in UK). Both shore and boat diving are available. Note that the Gulf of Aqaba is mostly fringing reef (boots are a must) - you don't need a boat, it's just for pleasure.
