About
Sea Guard offers diving and snorkeling trips at daytime as well as romantic trips at sunset. Founded in 2003, headquartered in Aqaba, the only seashore city of Jordan. The beginnings of Sea Guard date back to 1993 when one young enthusiast, Yazan Alsaed, started to dive. He made his first open water dive exam in 1994 and in 1996 got divemaster degree. He worked as assistant instructor since 1998 and since 2000 he has been PADI open water dive instructor. In 2003, Yazan Alsaed formally established Sea Guard, as a private company. At spring 2004 company bought its first diving and snorkeling boat, called Yasmena. Since then, we have been organizing trips at Red Sea, in Aqaba Bay and we performed thousands of dives (more than 12.000 dives made only by Yazan Alsaed). In 2008 we expanded our fleet with sight-seeing boat Alissar built in must-see phoenician style.

We spent a wonderful day on the board of Yazan's ship. Yazan and all the crew members are very friendly and helpful. The ship stopped at beautiful parts of the Red Sea where we could see colorful underwater world. I snorkeled, but if you want there is also the possibility of scuba diving. Yazan is a diving instructor. In the lunchtime we ate a delicious lunch on the board. I recommend this program for everyone.

We were on a one-day cruise with Yazan's boat in October. The Barakah is a very clean and comfortable boat. We snorkeled, everyone got the right gear to watch the beautiful corals and colorful fishes in the crystal clear water. We got everything we need, water, refreshments and a delicious lunch that was freshly grilled on board. Yazan and his team were very kind and helpful, everyone got attention. It was a very good day with them.

Our party of four (my wife and I plus our daughter and her partner) did the 4 hour snorkeling tour with Yazan and Sea Guard in August 2019.

I had been emailing with Yazan prior to our visit. He had been very helpful in giving me advice such as how long it would take us to drive to Aqaba from Wadi Rum on the morning of our booking.

As we arrived at the Royal Yacht Club we were unsure what type of boat we would have. We were delighted to find that the Barakah was a large, comfortable and beautiful boat.

We stopped for snorkeling at two different places. We had an excellent view of many colorful fishes. We were also very pleased with the quality of the equipment supplied. We have done these snorkeling tours in many countries - quite often the masks they give you are garbage - they leak water and you have to clear them out every few minutes. Not so with Sea Guard - everything was good quality and worked well.

The BBQ lunch they cooked for us onboard was very nice and the service from the staff was excellent.

Snorkeling in the Red Sea with Sea Guard was a memorable experience. We'd highly recommend it to others who visit Aqaba.

If you are driving your own car and not being picked up from your hotel, you can park your car securely and in a shaded spot at the Royal Yacht Club for a couple of JD while you do the tour.

An amazing experience both for scuba diving and for snorkeling. Everybody on the boat has been super kind and fun not to talk about the food that was incredibly delicious!
We spent three fantastic days with these people! We hardly recommend this experience to everyone in love with sea and its inhabitants!

I had the opportunity do dive with Mr Yasan late August 2019.
Though it was not a challenging dive (we did a quick dive near the shore while other passengers on the boat were snorkelling), it was very pleasant.
Mr Yasan was very thorough checking my level and my gear (I'm an accomplished diver but it's nice to know your guide cares about your security).
While we were diving care was taken picking up plastic pieces and other (unfortunate) garbage. So...thumbs up!!!
I would recommend this boat and this guide for dives in Aqaba!

(And the food on the boat was really yummy!)

This is the third time I have been diving with Yazan and his team. When I visit Jordan, it is a must for me to book a diving experience with Yazan. This time I took my mom and a friend who is visiting Jordan for the first time. Both had little experience in swimming, however, Yazan's amazing team looked carefully after them and ensured they enjoyed the experience. They made both of them try snorkeling while they held their hands and put them life jackets. They enjoyed it so much, that my friend was encouraged to try a taste of scuba diving and was accompanied by an experienced diver who looked after her as she tried scuba and managed to overcome her fears and go down to 4.5 meters depth. Now she is thinking of taking open water course because she enjoyed her experience so much.
The food was so yummy and the service was excellent and loads of laughters were around. It always feels like being with a family whenever with Yazan. Thank you for making our experience a little more extra :)
