There's a website that you must visit :

It has a whole lot about diving in Aqaba and a description of about a dozen different dive sites

Royal Diving Club:
Dive Aqaba:
NEW - Aquamarina:

The Saudi Wall and Cedar Pride Wreck are particularly distinctive dive sites.
Overall - abundance to see but expensive - 15JD tank, weights; 25JD full equip + lunch + boat charge for full day diving. Shop around and consider staying at one hotel and diving with an alternate PADI centre. Price packages if you're staying for a week (Ultramarina in France, Longwood in UK). Both shore and boat diving are available. Note that the Gulf of Aqaba is mostly fringing reef (boots are a must) - you don't need a boat, it's just for pleasure.
