“Great people & great diving”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We (me and my friend) went diving for 4 days and we can completely understand why this diving centre gets such good reviews. They completely deserve it. The atmosphere, the people and the dive sights are all great. The guides are very professional, they clearly explain what to expect at each dive site, they make sure that they match the dives to the diver's level of experience and they tend to also choose sites where there aren't already other boats, which makes it much more relaxing. The dive centre is comprised of a very friendly and jovial group of people which means that in addition to the diving you also have a good time on board. In short, the boat is nice, with delicious food, the diving is great, people are helpful, professional and friendly.

“Amazing Diving!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

For me it was the first time doing scuba diving and I couldn't be happier. The instructor are very professional, I felt I was in good hands all the time. I was very scared at the beginning, but they reassured me, making my experience very pleasant. They provide the equipment, which is very new. Prices are very good also. The boat is very comfortable and at the end of the day we had a delicious lunch. And plus they take underwater pictures of you, awesome.
Definitely recommended can't wait to do the course with them.

“Can't Go Wrong”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

There is a reason Ahlan gets such high reviews. I dived with them for five days and from beginning to end I had an amazing experience. Other reviews cover a lot of what I enjoyed but here are a few I don't think get mentioned enough.
-the boat is fantastic! Large and comfortable with everything you need.
- dive instructors are patient and engaged. Helping you learn and grow as a diver. Both Alex and Omar were fantastic teachers.
-The guys are professional and as a single female traveling alone I never felt creeped out or unsafe. It is so important to have people you trust and I trusted Ahlan and their crew.
- They are very accommodating. If you have a location you really want to dive they will help make it happen.
-And of course Tina is amazing!
Would definitely dive with them again and recommend to others.

“Two thumbs up :)”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I took my open water course with Ahlan Aqaba Diving center and honestly whenever I go diving I prefer to go with them. They are very professional from A to Z. As I have MS and my left leg is weak, they wanted to make sure that my Doctor approves scuba diving to me before I start the course. I found it very professional as some other centers don't do that. Moreover, they were patient and fun and I loved the fact that they are environmentalists and care for the coral life. As I work in Adventure tourism and in my company we go to clean canyons and care for nature. When I saw that from them, I respected them even more. The staff are so much fun and crazy, and lets not forget the great food prepared on their boat. Simply you guys ROCK :)
