Aqaba shore excursions

Aqaba shore excursions

Aqaba port is located on the Red Sea Gulf of Aqaba, and many cruise liners dock here in order to allow passengers to take advantage of the many possibilities for shore excursions in the area.

The ancient city of Petra is a journey which takes around two hours and is always popular with cruise passengers. A Jeep tour of the Wadi Rum Desert is another option for a shore excursion and this can be done in half a day. Guests who have more time can take an overnight tour to the Dead Sea and Amman, Jordan’s capital city. Closer to home, the Gulf of Aqaba is also home to Eilat – Israel’s most popular beach resort, and cruise passengers can find plenty to occupy them here – with a wealth of water sports on offer, including some of the best snorkelling opportunities in the world, around the Red Sea’s protected Coral Reef.
