Eilat Versus Aqaba? Need Your Thoughts

Jump to last reply

Hello---My husband and I are considering Eilat or Aqaba as part of a larger trip to Israel and Jordan. I have seen varying views on this topic. What do Fodor's members think? We are scuba divers and our purpose is to be there to scuba dive for several days. We are intermediate divers and are just looking for casual, laid back (and safe) diving. We haven't decided if we would do day trips to Petra from Eilat/Aqaba, or actually just stay at Petra. We basically just want to try a new dive location and have some good dinners at night and relax. I know either location will be touristy. Your thoughts are much appreciated!
