Experience the strangest feeling to enter the Dead Sea but unable to swim in its salty waters. Instead float, relax and enjoy its healing benefits. Try out the famous healing mud as well when you are here!
Your English speaking driver will meet you on the dock and transfer you in around 3.5 hours to a hotel resort at the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is located on the lowest point on earth’s surface, some 420 meters below sea level. Enjoy the bizarre but delightful experience of floating on the surface of the buoyant waters, seven times saltier than regular seawater. Read a newspaper or try to swim. The high content of salt in combination with 30+ minerals, gives the water curative and therapeutic qualities for arthritis, rheumatism, psoriasis and eczema. Cover yourself in the rich black mud found in pots along the foreshore, let it dry, then wash it off in the Sea. Your skin will feel revitalized. A buffet lunch is provided in one of the hotel restaurants (drinks at own expense). At the end of your tour, you will be returned to your ship in the Port of Aqaba. (L)
