Jordan has only 17 miles of coast along the red sea, yet 4 miles of it are protected by a marine park where one can appreciate how wild and gorgeous the waters are without human interference. Also with the upwelling of nutrients from the deeper sea below, divers can enjoy more than 1000 species of fish and the chance of spotting some large pelagic species, such as feather tail stingrays, Napoleon wrasse, hawksbill turtles and even whaleshark. Apart from diving, Jordan is a country with long and varied history, as well as world heritage sites and inspiring desert landscape, making it a perfect destination for one who wants diving and sight-seeing in one trip.
