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.

You’ll find rich cultural history in abundance here with opportunities to explore palaces, fortresses and monuments dating back to the Stone Age.
