Moses Parting The Red Sea

When I think of the Red Sea, the first thing that comes to mind is the well-known Bible story about Moses parting the Red Sea so the Israelites could escape Egypt. Hearing these incredible stories when we were children was one of the main reasons I really wanted to see the Red Sea for myself.


“Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.”

But not only is the Red Sea just the location of a well-known Bible story, but it’s also a beautiful, tropical beach resort with crystal clear, turquoise waters and pink beaches.

Diving and Snorkeling in the Red Sea

The Red Sea is one of the most popular destinations for diving and snorkeling because of the warm, crystal clear water, vibrant coral reefs, abundant marine life, and excellent visibility.

Our snorkeling trips start with a briefing from our experienced snorkel guides. After checking that you are comfortable with the snorkeling gear, they will guide you around one of Aqaba’s beautiful snorkeling spots, pointing the site’s highlights and any interesting marine creature you might encounter!

Snorkeling is the perfect activity for the whole family. While you do not have to be a great swimmer, you do need to be comfortable in the water. If you need extra help with your buoyancy, we have life jackets, floats, and wet suits at your disposal.

Kids especially love snorkeling, so make this one of the highlights of your family holiday here in beautiful Aqaba. Once they’ve been snorkeling, they’ll be full of stories to tell, with fish of all the sizes and colors of the rainbow.

Aqaba has a lot of snorkeling opportunities. Some of the most popular snorkeling sites include Japanese Gardens, Seven Sisters, Tank, Cable reef, Airplane Hercules C130, and many more. Learn more about snorkeling sites in Aqaba.

We conduct both boat and shore snorkeling trips.

Shore trips are more flexible and can fit around YOUR schedule better. For example, if you are not free in the morning or need to be back to shore on time, then choose a shore snorkeling trip. Don't worry, the pristine corals in Aqaba start from the first meters, so you do not need a boat to see amazing corals and colorful fish.

Boat trips take a minimum of 4 hours, and you’ll get the chance to visit 2 or 3 different snorkeling spots. We also arrange private boat trips for groups and individuals.
