Aqaba lies on the very tip of the Red Sea and it is home to 500 species of corals (150 of which are hard and 350 are soft), 1,200 species of fish, and 1000 types of mollusks and crustaceans.
Aqaba is well known for scuba diving, with easy access to some prominent and interesting dive sites. Aqaba’s mild climate makes it an ideal location for year-round scuba diving. The water temperature during the summer is about 26 degrees Celsius (79 degrees Fahrenheit), dropping to 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) in the winter. And in the summer there are over 12 hours of sunlight every day.
There is over 25 sites along our coastline (with the Tech dive sites more than 30) most of which are in the protected Aqaba Marine Park. Each site varies in shape and inhabitants from slopes to drop-offs, canyons to flat bottoms, veiled completely with flourishing corals.
One of Aqaba’s most famous dive sites is the wreck of the Cedar Pride, a Lebanese freighter sunk in 1985. At a maximum depth of 26 m, it provides a wreck dive that divers with all levels of experience can enjoy. The second most famous dive site is an anti-aircraft tracked vehicle (The Tank). Also now they have the new tristar airplane wreck what was sunk in 2019 wiith the milatary meuseum offering Helicopters, Tanks, Cannons, and much more stuff.
