The Gulf of Aqaba is an excellent fishing spot teeming with life. The most abundant species include tuna, bream, sailfish, and trevally. Private fishing charters hold two to four fishermen aboard, and usually last for at least 4 hours and up to 10 hours. All the necessary equipment from fishing rods to bait is provided. Soft drinks are also included in the price. The season depends on the species, but deep-sea fishing is available mainly in summer from May to September.
