Boat diving in Aqaba - Enjoy a day out with Laila One and our team

We take our boat out everyday - no minimum numbers!

Boat Diving

We have over 30 sites along our coastline most of which are in the Aqaba Marine Park.There is a large variety of differing topography and differing habitats within a small area. This side of the Gulf we have lots of upwelling from the depths bringing nutrients to the reef and thus prolific marine life. The reefs are protected and unspoilt. All except our "Tec Dive" sites are suitable for snorkeling. Below you will find links for each site with photos all taken recently which are updated on a regular basis so you know what the sites are like now and what you are likely to see there. There are descriptions of 30 recreational and technical dive sites and links to maps for most of the sites.
We dive, swim & snorkel from Laila One, our purpose built dive boat. She is owned by Dive Aqaba and berthed at the Royal Yacht Club. We visit two sites in the day then relax and enjoy a fantastic meal on board. At weekends (Fridays & Saturdays) we also make afternoon trips that return at sunset. We also charter other boats as required by numbers. Go to Dive Site List
We are continually exploring and finding new sites, particularly in the technical diving range (over 40m). There are also 5 wrecks to dive, the most well known being the Cedar Pride , the deep wrecks of the Al Shorouk (scuttled June this year) and Taiyong also the famous Tank in just 6m of water and the usually missed Tarmac Five! View videos of these wrecks and more diving from Aqaba on youtube or download them.
