Thousands have learnt to dive at Aqua-Sport, and so can you. There is little doubt that this is one of the finest locations to be introduced to the amazing sport of diving. Imagine floating in the water with neutral buoyancy, an unforgettable experience.

Quality dive instruction, beautiful waters and abundant marine life are a few of the many reasons why we at Crusader Travel believe that Aqua-Sport Eilat is such a perfect location for learning to dive.

WHY WE LOVE IT

The beach is sandy and sloping for easy access to the sea, there you will find Rock Coral Knolls teeming with coral and marine Life.

Spend hours exploring the Marine Nature Reserve reefs, which are good for divers and snorkelers, and on top of all that there is the Eilat Underwater Observatory with some of the finest marine specimens in a natural environment. In the observatory there is also the rare opportunity to view marine life from a deep platform beneath the surface.

Another attraction is Eilat’s Dolphin Reef, where you can meet and swim with rescued Dolphins.

QUALITY DIVING INSTRUCTION

Aqua-Sport is a PADI 5* Gold Palm Centre, equipped with the most up to date scuba Equipment and the instructors are the finest professional instructors to be found anywhere. English is the second language of most of the instructors and they speak it well. At any time you will also find instructors speaking Italian, French, Russian and many other languages. Aqua-Sport also provide IAHD qualified instructors for people with disabilities.

Junior PADI qualifying courses can be taken in Eilat from the age of 12 and in Aqua-Sport Taba from the age of 10 .

There are a variety of courses offered at Aqua-Sport Eilat and Aqua-Sport Taba (see the table at the bottom of this page). In addition you can improve your skills with specialty courses.

LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATION

It is possible to leave the equipment on the boat for the duration of your vacation. Marettimo is the westernmost and most remote of the three Egadi Islands, just over an hour’s hydrofoil ride from Trapani on Sicily’s western tip.

Then, in the summer months, expat islanders return to see their families, catch up with the news and renew their vows of love for their home. The story of Marettimo’s diaspora and how the islanders took up salmon-fishing in Alaska is the stuff of legend and an intrinsic part of the island’s identity. There are no hotel, camping or other large-scale tourism apart from some trattorie (restaurants), bars and local shops.

After pick up from your hotel in Eilat, you will cross the border into Jordan, and make your way to Petra along the desert highway. You will spend the first day of your tour with a guide, discovering the secrets of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Nabatean city of Petra. Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean carved-city, situated between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia. Petra is half-built, half-carved into the rock, and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It is one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, where ancient Eastern traditions blend with Hellenistic architecture. Overnight in hotel in Petra including breakfast. The following day is dedicated to an independent exploration of the site: you can return to your favourite place, or hike along one of the trails, such as that to the impressive Monastery.

After an experiential night in the desert, sleeping in tents, wake up to enjoy a Jeep tour in the Wadi Rum Nature Reserve, guided by local Bedouins.

Home to the many exploits of the famous T.E. Lawrence during the 1917-1918 Arab Revolt, Wadi Rum was used for the desert shots of the film “Lawrence of Arabia”. After experiencing Wadi Rum, head to the port city of Aqaba for a walk through its traditional Arab markets before crossing back to Israel and ending your tour in Eilat.
