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

Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea is a modern 5* resort where you'll find stunning views of the Red Sea from every corner.

Through the wide glass entrance, you're immediately struck by the staggering beauty of the Red Sea in front of you. Move through the lobby to the sparkling swimming pool, complete with a Jacuzzi and panoramic ocean views. These breathtaking seascapes continue in your room, from the large windows and private furnished balcony. 

Expect excellent service in a minimalist, European-inspired setting, courtesy of a world leading hospitality brand; Kempinski. As one of only two 5* resorts in Aqaba located directly on the shores of the Red Sea, this is the unquestionable top choice for sea-loving PADI travelers, who won't compromise on luxuries and comforts.

With six restaurants and bars to choose from, you can dine on everything from pizzas and burgers to afternoon tea and gourmet seafood. There is also the option of a generous international and Jordanian buffet. Come evening, the restaurant on the beach - Fish In Restaurant - hosts live music and belly dancing performances. 

Long-established PADI 5* IDC dive center, Sindbad Dive Club has a base on Kempinski's Beach, meaning total convenience for all divers. Get picked up from the beach and cruise down to Aqaba's marine park on a large wooden sailing ship or shaded motor cruiser. The journey will take around 40 minutes and you'll witness Jordan, Israel and Egypt en route. Once there, explore a sunken plane, coral-covered tank and a 70 m long shipwreck - all set within thriving soft corals and blue coral that is unique to the region.
