Owner description: Aqaba Bedouin Dive operates out of the Bedouin Garden Village Hostel. We offer daily Scuba dives for certified divers on sites ranging from 6m to 40m deep. We dive the iconic Cedar Pride ship wreck and the "Tank" as well as all of the other dive sites here in Aqaba. We take photographs on all of our none training dives. We also off our divers the option of taking a cleanup bag with them on their dives to help keep our reefs rubbish free.We offer a full range of Padi dive courses from begginer to divemaster level. We have an onsite Pool for diver training and a fantastic coral reef right across the road.We are more than happy to take one diver or multiple divers as we have no minimum number to run a dive. All of our sites are within a 5 minute drive from our dive shop. We spend our surface interval time at our dive shop where you can relax in the shade around the pool with a cold drink or icecream.We also offer guided snorkeling and have accommodation available on site.

We did three dives with our brilliant diving instructors Chris and Sam to the beautiful Japanese Garden and also to the mysterious and majestic Cedar Pride. Great visibility, lots and lots of colourful fish and coral, excellent company. Thanks so much for this awesome experience!!! Fully recommended!!!

“Great introduction back to diving”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

I hadn't dived for over five years and so was a bit rusty, but spent some time with Sam in the pool practising safety drills before going for an easy dive and soon felt comfortable back in the water. I did three more dives - Cedar Pride and Japanese Garden - and saw a large variety of fish, coral, eels and a turtle.
If you have never dived before then Sam is a great (and very patient) teacher and both Sam and Chris are very passionate about diving.
I would definitely recommend diving with ABD if you are in Aqaba.

“snorkling in Aqaba an amazing stress relief”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

me and my friend went snorkeling with Chris, it was an amazing experience the corals, the fish and the water what a pleasure watching the under water life and hearing just your breathing, a real stress relief, it's a must do in Aqaba, the center is not directly on the beach you need to cross the road to get there, but Chris was very helpful by taking us there in the centers car.
the staff at the bedouin dive are professional and friendly. don't miss such an experience

“Definitely worth your while!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

I was there when Joey and Gus were providing the diving instructions (July 25-29, 2013). It was my first time ever, and it was awesome :) It was so quiet during the days that I was offered private lessons. The instructions were thus more than adequately covered, and the times diving in the pool as well as in the ocean were very informative as well as fun. I received my PADI open water certificate, but the best part is is that its a guaranteed enjoyable experience. I visited the Tank, the Japanese Garden (2 times), and Cedar's Pride (2 times). At night we went out for a couple of beer s together, suggesting that they don't just do it for the money ;)

“Great Diving & Very Professional Instructors!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We spent a whole week at Bedouin Garden Village in Aqaba.
The diving was amazing and Sam & Chris very professional and always ready to help. Starting with the wreck, it was a deep dive and right at the start we were lucky to be greeted by a green turtle who hanged around us, super friendly! We also did a dive at Japanese Gardens with heaps of marine life all around, nice shallow and relaxed. Seven Sisters is another dive site with 7 pinnacles laid in circle and at the end of the dive in just 5 m of water a tank with lots of small stuff to take pictures! Every dive we went with the instructors we felt very safe. Thanks guys for such an amazing week of diving!
