Diving in Israel

Explore diving in Israel

Israel lies on the Mediterranean Sea’s eastern shore, but also touches the tip of the Red Sea’s Gulf of Aqaba, thus offering two very different scuba diving scenes.

As you might imagine, Israel has a plethora of museums, interpretive centers and reserves. Of particular note for scuba divers, one of these is underwater. It’s just one of Israel's many varied dive sites that range from dramatic wrecks to archaeological tours to stunning coral reefs replete with myriad marine life.

In the Mediterranean, don’t miss out on the Rosh HaNikra Caverns, unique chalk caverns that are constantly being whittled away by the water. Accessible from the shoreline, you can just jump right in and check out the fantastic grottos and caves.

More Information

Israel’s main international airport is Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion International Airport. A second international airport, used mostly by charter flights, is located at Ovda and serves the south, predominantly, Eilat.

After you’ve made it into the country, you can make your way around by the excellent bus system. There are also revamped railways to chug along, while gaining a fuller view of the local scenery.
