What to see

Just south of Aqaba lies a 4 mile stretch of Jordanian Marine Park. A coral-lovers dream, this destination is suited to a number of different kinds of divers - largely for the same reasons. A bounty of neon colored corals, little reef fish, macro creatures, amazing visibility and warm seas year-round make it a great destination for new divers, underwater photographers and those who love shallow coral reefs interspersed with sandy patches. Spend your days meticulously exploring the reef, getting to know the kaleidoscopic residents. 

Marine creatures include clown fish, grey moray eels, Spanish dancers, lion fish, frog fish, sea grass sea horses, napoleon wrasse, blue spotted rays and turtles. Occasionally during summer months you may see sharks or dolphins in the deep blue while wall diving at Power Station, but this is not a standard experience

When it comes to coral, expect large and small formations in every color imaginable. Only in this marine park and one other place in Australia will you be able to see blue coral - something that surely puts Aqaba on the bucket list for any coral enthusiast. Witness cabbage coral, brain coral, black coral and countless varieties of soft coral. Some of which is swaying in the calm seas, while others are visibly moving to capture tiny pieces of algae in the water. Take your time to appreciate these amazing little moments and you won't be disappointed

Dive Center

Highlights

  • PADI 5* IDC Dive Resort instrumental in bringing diving to Jordan in the 90s, and the only dive center located directly on the shores of Aqaba's Marine Park
  • Explore shallow reefs teeming with soft corals, colorful reef fish and unique blue coral (found only here and one other destination on the planet!)
  • Dive inside a plane, around a coral-covered tank and underneath a 70m+ shipwreck
  • Dive from double-storey dive boats or take a day trip on a large wooden sailing ship 
  • Free and flexibly-timed pick-ups and drop-offs from your resort
  • Set within Berenice Beach Club - enjoy a dip in the pool and a post-dive beer as you watch the sun set dramatically over the Red Sea
  • Fantastic destination for new divers with calm conditions, beautiful marine life and purpose-built training pool (with a side window where your friends or family can watch you refine your skills).

Description

Sindbad Dive Club is a super-experienced, warm and welcoming PADI 5* IDC Dive Resort located on the crystalline shores of Aqaba's marine park.

As one of the first dive centers to bring diving to Jordan and the only dive center located directly in front of the marine park, rest assured you are in safe (and fun!) hands. Dive or snorkel right from the beach or board one of the spacious dive vessels moored at Berenice Beach Club's private jetty. You may dive from one of the purpose-built double-storey dive boats, or enjoy a full day out on the wooden sailing ship (check out the video above to see for yourself!). 

Aqaba's marine park is a haven for new and experienced divers alike. If you love coral reefs, great visibility and interesting, shallow wrecks then this destination is for you. Look out for yellow-mouthed moray eels, lion fish, Spanish dancers, nudibranchs, blue spotted rays, napoleon wrasse and sea grass sea horses. In terms of coral, there are countless varieties including cabbage coral, black coral and the super rare blue coral (found only here and one other place in Australia). Make sure you make time to dive on the unique wrecks - a tank, plane and 70m+ ship, all within 30m. 

Perhaps you're looking to do your Open Water Course? The deep, purpose-built diver pool at Berenice Beach Club is perfect, and the pool has a glass window on its side so your friends and family can check on your progress as you refine your skills. The calm conditions and colorful marine life in this slice of the Red Sea are ideal for blowing your first bubbles underwater. 

Post-dive you can head back to the hotel, or opt for a dip in the pool at Berenice Beach Club. Enjoy a drink on a sun lounger and admire the sun as it sets of the ocean. When you're ready, the team will drop you back at the hotel, free of charge - simple as that.

Resort Description

Beau Rivage Boutique Resort is located in Aqaba's South Bay area, overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Aqaba, only steps away from the protected marine area. 

This resort strikes the perfect combination of waterfront activity, quality accommodation and beach relaxation - all for a reasonable price. The boutique hotel is set back from the coastline, just over the road from the beach, offering beautiful sunset views of the ocean and Egyptian mountains beyond. Besides spacious, clean and comfortable rooms, you'll find a chill-out area/sports bar, a huge swimming pool, a sun lounging area, beach volleyball court, a large air conditioned dining hall with an outdoor dining area and a cafe in the lobby. 

This place is ideal for divers who want direct access to incredible diving and snorkeling but don't want to compromise on the quality of their accommodation. With all other 4* and 5* hotels located in Aqaba City or Tala Bay (further south towards Saudi Arabia), Beau Rivage is currently the only luxury option within walking distance of Aqaba's marine park. 

All PADI Travelers receive exclusive free entry to the renowned Berenice Beach Club - the only private beach located within the marine protected zone. Here you'll find two further swimming pools, a fully-equipped dive center and a restaurant. Order snacks to enjoy on the beach or sign up for Aqaba Beach Kitchen, buy your ingredients from locals and learn how to cook your own Sayadieh (fish and rice cooked with nuts and spices). 

Explore Aqaba City easily - it's just a 15 minute taxi ride away - or stick around the marine park area where you can choose from the extensive buffet for breakfast and dinner at the beach club. Beau Rivage hosts regular live music evenings by the pool, complete with belly dancers and DJs, and Sindbad Watersports (at Berenice Beach Club) offers a plethora of aqua activities and atmospheric sunset cruises. The team at Beau Rivage can also help arrange an adventure to Petra or Wadi Rum for you - both unforgettable experiences!

How to get there

Arrival

  • The best airport to fly into is Aqaba, though it is possible to fly to Ramon Airport in Israel. 
  • If you fly into Aqaba, you should get a taxi to the resort at the airport. Ask to be taken to 'Beau Rivage Resort in South Beach, opposite the marine park'. 
  • The journey will last around 25 minutes and will cost roughly 25 JD per vehicle (up to 4 people). It is wise to confirm the cost of your taxi with the driver ahead of setting off. 
  • If you are flying into Ramon Airport, you will need to cross over the border into Jordan. From Wadi Araba Border Crossing the taxi journey will last around 30 minutes. 
  • Check in time is 2 pm. 

Departure

  • Check out time is 10 am. 
  • Following check-out, the resort staff will arrange a taxi to take you back to the airport. The journey will last around 25 minutes.
