Diving from Aqaba offers superb conditions in which to begin your technical skills away from the crowds of other diving areas of the Red Sea. 

Your holiday to Jordan includes a week at the Marina Plaza Hotel in Tala Bay, a short distance from the dive centre. Spend your days exploring the famous dive sites along the coast including wrecks and colourful walls of corals. This itinerary includes regular recreational diving and the opportunity to discover technical diving and the skills involved. 

For those looking to learn more skills this is a great opportunity to discover technical diving principles and skills which can help you with future diving holidays to more remote destinations with world-class dive sites which require technical skills. The itinerary includes a discover technical dive and it's possible to add more to this including further full instruction for the PADI Tec 40 Course, should you meet the prequisites. The discover technical dive is available for all experienced qualified divers.
