Diving in Saudi Arabia

Explore diving in Saudi Arabia

From the Jordanian border on the northern Gulf of Aqaba to the Yemeni border in the far south, there are probably as many reefs in Saudi waters as the rest of the Red Sea combined. Unlike all of the other shores, they are almost entirely unexplored.

Local dive sites are known for an abundance of pelagic marine life, including a healthy population of sharks. Just below the surface you’ll find pristine coral reefs containing at least 200 species of coral in different colours.

The Red Sea has some of the best diving in the world. With over 1000 species of fish and 150 species of coral, it is rich in life. As the Red Sea has few storms, her corals are intricate and beautiful. You’ll find rich cultural history in abundance here with opportunities to explore palaces, fortresses and monuments dating back to the Stone Age.

Best Time to dive in Red Sea

The average water temperature ranges from a low of 20oC in February to 31 oC in September in the far south. The winds are often weakest during full moon. Low season is December to February because of the cooler water, and June to August because of the heat, which makes for quieter dive sites
