Scuba Diving in Jordan

You might be surprised to read a post with “scuba diving” and “Jordan” in the title, but it’s true, Jordan, a country in the Middle East, has excellent and easily accessible scuba diving! Aqaba, Jordan, nestled between Saudi Arabia and Israel sits ideally at the tip of the Gulf of Aqaba, has several kilometers of coastline south of Aqaba (Tala Bay), and with calm waters and year-round high temperatures make Jordan an ideal scuba diving destination.
