“Good service. Very helpful.”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

I swowed up last minute for a night dive. They were willing to accomodate me in. Unfortunately, I missed the dive because the shop did not accept my original PADI Medical certificate signed by my doctor because it was not rubber-stamped. Where I live, MDs do not use rubber stamps to avoid fraud. The shop offrered me to see a local doctor, but my tour was leaving Aqaba the next day.

Otherwise I saw that they were very organized and helpful. I would recommend them.

“In diving, I am learning, is the people quality whom you dive with that matters!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

I came to Aqaba to complete my scuba open water certification and have some fun dives. From the first enquiry by phone to the last goodbye, Tina, Shadi and the crew have been amazing. The hotel, course, and even programme of my accompanying guest were all tailored to our need with a warm and friendly welcome. The boat crew are so friendly and even the choices for lunch are both healthy and yummy! I have stayed on to take Digital Photography qualification and all the team members took interests in me and shared their tips and tricks. I can not do them justice of what they have given me in such a short and so enriching time. If you want a great diving masters, for all levels in an amazing professionalism and high standards then Ahlan Aqaba will sure meet your expectations.

Absolute pleasure to have been taught by you and earned your fellowship! Highly recommended!

“the red sea with great diving service”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Very nice dive locations, reef in very good shape some of it full of life. Sealife a bit on the smaller side versus Egypt - if we don't count the whaleshark on the last dive :-)
Best of all though is the dive-shop, paying close attention to the divers and making the experience really great. Service was great from all the people on the boat and the boat itself was nice and in good shape. I've probably experienced 15+ diveshops/boats but this one is in top 3. strongly recommend.

“Great people, generous service, amazing sea life”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Due to an unexpected storm last Sunday, unfortunately we never set foot on the boat. Despite this, the whole crew at the Ahlan Aqaba Diving Center made our day. Pick-up at our hotel, honest info about the poor weather conditions, great advice about an alternative -off the beach- snorkling location, generous usage of their equipment while they watched over our luggage, nice chats , etc. etc.
The under water life we ended up seeing was amazing. When I make it back to Aqaba, for sure I'll book another trip here.

“Outstanding professionalism”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Our scuba and snorkel adventure on April 15 2014 was great. The staff was extremely professional. The boat was well designed to handle all the air tanks while still giving those on board the ability to relax. Safety was paramount throughout.
We will return next time we are in AqBa
