From the end of March, Jordan – one of the world’s finest diving destinations – is to be more accessible than ever before. Dive Worldwide customers will be able to take advantage of new same-day connecting flights to the resort town of Aqaba offered by national carrier Royal Jordanian. Introduced on 31 March, the new flight means divers will no longer need to stay overnight in Amman, wasting a day of their holiday.
UK-based diving holiday specialist, Dive Worldwide, offers a number of trips to the Jordanian resort of Aqaba, a year-round dive destination, home to treasures both above and underwater; from wreck diving, snorkelling and sandy beaches to the nearby UNESCO-protected Wadi Rum and Petra.
This week-long stay in Aqaba showcases the very best of the southern part of Jordan. Guests not only enjoy a 10-dive package in the Red Sea, encompassing everything from reef to wreck dives, but are also able to make excursions out into the desert to explore the local villages and historical sites, and learn more about this fascinating country.
From £1,375pp based on 2 sharing, including 7 nights’ B&B accommodation, 10 dive package, tanks and weights, transfers and return flights from the UK.
The Red Sea’s crystal clear waters and abundant marine life make Aqaba an ideal location to learn to dive. Based at the entrance to Tala Bay, the Seastar Water Sports dive centre welcomes divers of all abilities and is a great place to learn to dive, given the warm waters, calm conditions and uncrowded dive sites. The PADI Open Water Course will take four days to complete and new divers will enjoy a mix of classroom sessions, pool and open water dives.
From £1,465pp based on 2 sharing, including 7 nights’ B&B accommodation, PADI E-learning Open Water course including pool sessions and 4 open water dives, transfers and return flights from the UK.
