Diving in Turkey – the pros and cons

The question of whether there is even a diving in Turkey, today has already lost its relevance. Diving services are offered by many travel agencies and hotels on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey (it is still underdeveloped on the Black Sea).

Diving in Turkey – the pros and cons
Izmir, Chanakkale, Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye, Dalyan, Kalkan – these names of Turkish resort cities are already well known to diving enthusiasts.

The “capital of Turkish diving” appeared – the seaside town of Kas, three hours drive from Antalya. Here is a popular (first of all among Turkish diving lovers) “Kash Adventure Diving Club”, an annual diving festival is held.

That is, diving in Turkey is a phenomenon that has already taken place, numerous reviews on the Internet only confirm this fact.

TURKISH DIVING
Implement your idea to go diving in Turkey in two ways. If you have acquired an international certificate, you can request permission from your country’s embassy to dive in various diving, coastal areas. You can join the diving club and directly at the resort, in this case, permission is not required. If you sign a contract for a day or more, you will be issued the appropriate certificate, in which case you will definitely need a passport.

In Turkey, both the government and public organizations cherish the ancient historical and natural heritage, therefore, for violating certain rules of behavior under water, you can be seriously fined. The cost of one day diving in Turkey will cost from 40 euros, a day on a boat with an instructor will cost from 50 euros. A four-day course of study with the issuance of an international certificate will cost about 220 euros.

On the seabed, as you know, tourists dive to see something there. The Mediterranean coast of Turkey is rich in ancient monuments, the remains of ancient structures, various antiquities, such as the famous Greek amphoras, may be of interest to divers. As well as various natural objects – caves, grottoes, canyons. Undoubtedly, interesting and sunken objects – warships, airplanes, in a variety of remaining in this once very troubled corner of the Mediterranean.

But if you expect to see and capture some amazing fish, mollusks, exotic underwater landscapes while diving on the Turkish coast, you will most likely be disappointed.

The fact is that the Mediterranean Sea can not be classified as warm tropical seas. Yes, the average water temperature in it is quite high, especially in summer. But still it is significantly lower than, say, in the nearby Red Sea. In addition, the Mediterranean water is not so clear. Therefore, corals do not grow here, respectively, and there is no coral fish that are striking in their colorful coloring. And many other representatives of the underwater fauna – rays, manti, many mollusks prefer to settle in warmer and more transparent waters. Of course, this factor largely reduces the value of Turkish diving.

Therefore, we advise you to decide on priorities. If diving for you is only a pleasant addition to the general program of your holiday – beach bathing, sightseeing – Turkish resorts are fine.

Diving in turkey

If diving – the main goal of the main goal of your journey – it is better to choose the Egyptian resorts on the Red Sea. Diving there is more expensive than diving in Turkey – from 50 euros per day, but the unique beauty of the tropical underwater world, believe me, more than compensate for your additional expenses with vivid impressions.
