There are many things that make Aqaba the best place to go diving in the Red Sea. The diving along the shores of Aqaba, South Beach, is as good as you can find it anywhere in the Red Sea; there are extensive efforts into coral preservation and restriction on fishing which helps to assure that divers will meet lots of fish, crustaceans, octopus, turtles and everything you wish to see. The local dive centers are very active in clean up dives and often the guests participate, this shows the involvement of both the local dive industry and the guests.
