All Aqaba Diving sites all are fringing reef stretching for a distance of over 25km right down to the Saudi Arabian border, there are no off-shore reefs. The reef starts literally at the waters edge and extends like the fingers of your hands into canyons leading to pinnacles and drop offs.

When shore diving, the dive starts as soon as you enter the water and continues until the last few centimeters.
