What a view! This really is a unique way to see sealife, especially if you're not keen on snorkelling etc as you're in a boat the whole time. There had been an error with our booking but they did manage to fit us in later that day as they realised their mistake, so decent customer service. The guide 'Mahmoud' was very friendly, spoke to all passengers and was very knowledgeable. It was really quite something to be submerged 2 meters underwater and see the sea bed/sea life from the comfort of a seat. The captain took great care as we got quite close to the coral but didn't hit it once. A great experience that I would recommend.

The Neptune boat trip is the best experience we had in Aqaba. It starts from Hotel Marine Plaza some 10 km away from the main city but taxi service in Aqaba is good.
Family with young children can’t experience the diving but for them the best option is this ~1 hr boat trip. You can go inside the 2.5-3m deep deck made with glass and experience the beauty of marine animals in their natural habitat. The capacity of the boat is around 10-12. But you need to be careful with your very young jumpy kids and belongings when sitting outside as you will be sitting on a boat enclosed by railing and chains. The boat was driven in moderate speed so you wouldn’t get scared of drowning even though you are not wearing life jacket.
The view of blue gulf and the hill around give a peaceful feeling. When you go down and look around the spectacular view of the underwater Sea is really breathtaking. The colorful corals and fishes look so beautiful in the sunny day. We could see them all clearly. There are some wreckage drowned purposefully to study the marine life. They also give the feeling of old days!!!
The staffs are really friendly and helpful and quiet informative about what they are showing.

One must go for it. But those who feel claustrophobic and think twice before choosing this option.

Cannot fault this trip. Leader was attentive, considerate & knowledgeable. Underwater sights were pointed out and information given. An experience not to miss if not a diver!

Neptune is the only unique Boat in Aqaba
we can see everything under water without getting wet
i had a chance to see the Tank, Airplane,& Ship wreck.
it's a great chance for a person like me who doesn't dive
i had a great time watching the group of jellyfish from inside the glass room.
the staff was amazing.
Mahmood is very professional guide & very patient with explaining everything we see
under water.
Lina was very attentive & has very special way to attract us to book the neptune trip.
in general neptune deals with the guests in very professional way.
you should give it a try if you are in aqaba.
