As a PADI Greenstar Dive center we are very passionate about looking after our reef and the sea. We perform clean up dives once a week and complete surveys of the rubbish we find for Project AWARE regularly. Additionally we work closely with the Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan (JREDS – http://www.jreds.org/) and the Aqaba Marine Park to maximize conservation. Customers can get involved on clean up dives if they wish or just help out by donating to Project AWARE. We also save water within the dive centre as we are very aware we are in desert country!
Our groups are small, we do not take any groups larger than 1:5 (guide: certified divers). Often the groups are a lot smaller than this as we also match divers into groups of similar abilities and experience. For example, Open Water Divers together or Advanced Open Water Divers with over 100 dives with an experienced Rescue Diver. We feel this gives everyone a better dive as they dive within their own limits but are not restricted by other divers either. This is not common practice in the Red Sea.
Our equipment is well maintained, serviced and fit for purpose. We provide long 5mm wetsuits as standard but you are free to choose to layer up (including hoods if you are someone that gets cold very easily) or wear one of our shorties as you feel comfortable. This is all included in the price and again this is not universal in the Red Sea.
Our attitude is all about getting everyone to love scuba diving and the sea as much as we do and we think it rubs off (unless you share it already, then you can just join in). This can be felt as an atmosphere in our dive centre and from the professional approach of our guides. We adhere to the PADI rules in all aspects of our diving meaning that people feel safe but also have fun. As every member of our team loves diving, that passion is expressed through the way we work. We feel a testament to this is how people describe us when reviewing us on TripAdvisor
