Scuba Diving in Eilat, Israel’s Gulf of Aqaba thumbnail

As soon as I knew I was going to Israel, I knew I was going diving. Why? Because where there is water, that’s what I do. What I didn’t realize, at the time, is how many unique and salty dive experiences Israel had to offer. All that in time. I’d start where most divers in Israel…
