“Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided”
— Exodus 14:21

Whereas tradition claims Moses crossed into Jordan through the Red Sea, in the south, and made his way to the north up to to Mount Nebo, what neither Moses nor his brother Aaron ever dreamed of doing was going scuba diving in the Red Sea, now one of the main reasons why tourists go in flocks to the southern city of Aqaba. Magnificent coral reefs await those who, rather than crossing the sea, plunge into its depths.
