My Summary

Owner and technical director of Dive Aqaba, a PADI 5 Star IDC Centre based in Aqaba, Jordan on the Red Sea.

In Jordan we have a small coastline which has to support industry, tourism and of course conserve the environment. At Dive Aqaba we have been at the forefront on environmental activities here in Aqaba since 2002, working with Jordan Royal Ecological Diving Society, Aqaba Marine Park, Aqaba Diving Association (of which we are a founding member) local government and US Aid projects.

We have continual on going projects to maintain the coral reefs here in Aqaba and have offered PADI distinctive Clean Up Diver certification (written by myself in 1999) since we started Dive Aqaba in 2002.
