Anyone got advice about snorkelling at Aqaba, please? We'll only have two full days. Should we buy gear in UK or buy/rent in Aqaba? Where are best places to buy/rent in Aqaba and where are best areas to go, as we don't have much time? Many thanks.
There are 2 ways: 1.: you catch a taxi and go to the Royal Diving Center. It is 3 or 4 JD /6usd/ and the entrance fee is 4-5 JD. Here you can rent equipment. And there are also diving courses. 2.: go to the bazaar and at the grocery u can buy tickets for the glass boat. It's a full day program and costs around 10-15 JD with lunch. You will go out with a glass bottom boat, stop in many places where u can snorkel, like Japanese garden and South Beach. The prices: the pipe and the glasses were around 25-30 JD in the bazaar.
