The amusing underwater life of the Red Sea combined with year-round warm temperatures and excellent visibility up to 40 meters make Jordan a great diving destination. Despite the only access to the sea being the Aqaba coastline, the area boasts 25 diving sites, which is enough to meet the needs of any tourist. While exploring submerged canyons, coral gardens, pinnacles, and shipwrecks​ you can encounter an endless variety of marine creatures including massive eagle rays and sting rays, cute turtles, pipefish, frogfish, nudibranchs, shrimp, and others. Winter is not very good for diving due to strong winds that stir up the waters and worsen the visibility. March to April faces a similar issue due to plankton blooms, and Jordanian summer is renowned for unbearable temperatures, so the best season is May to June and September through October.
