Diving in aqaba

In general there are no strong currents. Only at some dive sites, a current may arise in the afternoon.

Normally the visibility is between 25 and 50 meters, but after a day with a western wind, visibility can drop to 15 meters.

Because the dive sites are all located in the Gulf, waves are relatively low.

The tidal differences do not have much effect on the diving conditions.
