Diving in Turkey

Explore diving in Turkey

Kaş is the diving capital of Turkey. It is one of the top 100 dive sites of the world because of its abundance of marine life and ancient relics. There are over 30 dive sites, all within a 20 minute boat ride from the dock. You can wreck dive, cave dive, and explore deep canyons.

Sometimes, there are even underwater art exhibitions held here, so keep in touch with the locals to find out more information. Be sure to bring your camera, you are certain to run into some incredible sights, and probably even some sea turtles.

In Bodrum, you can do some great wreck diving. There is a massive aircraft carrier to explore, as well as several other boats. A fairly intact propeller plane is also yours to explore. Old cars, beaten by time and water damage, are like skeletons of their former selves.
