The best way to describe it would be that it’s like floating on air and the fish are the birds flying around you. I fed the fish some bread and it attacked the bread like a bunch of pigeons attacking bird seeds in a park.
The red sea is one of the most (if not the most) beautiful seas to scuba-dive in because it’s rich in corals, very calm and has a lot of pretty fish.
All the training we did was in the sea and not in the pool ,which is what is usually done in other places, which I thought was fantastic because it makes it a lot of fun and gives you motivation since it’s so much more beautiful with the fish and the corals.
It takes 4 – 5 days to get the novice certificate that will enable you to dive in a lot of countries. The course involves some theory hours and 2 – 2.5 hours a day of in-water practice and a written test at the end.
The course is relatively inexpensive and completely worth it. It’s your first step to a lifetime of scuba fun.
So next time you plan a trip to Aqaba, do yourself a favor and make it worth it and scuba dive, you will not regret it!
