10 Best Places to go Diving in and Around Israel

The Fellowship  |  February 21, 2020

Surprisingly, diving in Israel’s cooler months is better than in summer because the water is crystal clear and you can easily spot sea life, reports Israel21c:

Neptune’s Tables, Eilat

Neptune’s Tables, accessible from the beachfront at Isrotel Princess Hotel in Eilat, is one of the area’s deepest dives, with average depths of 15-25 meters.

At the 12-meter mark you will start to see large coral formations. Go even farther down to see the large “table” coral formations that give the site its godly name.

Along the Red Sea’s sandy bottom, you can view garden eels, blue spotted stingrays, colorful nudibranchs and an unusually large number of starfish early in the morning hours, making this a truly worthwhile dive.
