Antalya, with its clear Mediterranean blue waters and great underwater visibility offers sensational diving opportunities for divers of any level. Benefit from a multi-lingual crew of ten (including two dive masters and four dive instructors) who are eager to introduce the underwater world to you. First-time divers and beginners are first given an onboarding on theoretical instruction about the equipment, safety, and underwater sign-language. Following the practical training and the breathing exercises on the surface, beginners are taken underwater by a guide. Take a gradual descent with long enough pauses at each meter to allow you to feel confident and comfortable. At the third meter, reach the bottom and feed the fish while the second instructor takes pictures and videos of you that you have the option to purchase. Feel relaxed, confident, and ready to swim around part of the island at a deeper level that goes no lower than 6 meters. Your instructor adjusts the air in your suit precisely so that you stay suspended at the required depth. No gravity, no worries, just admire the beautiful world embracing you. The six meter dive (you can stay shallower if you like) is repeated in the afternoon session at another spot. The second dive involves more exploration and different experiences. Your friends or family, who do not wish to dive can join the tour as ‘visitors’ and enjoy all the facilities aboard except scuba diving.

A highlight of our trip to Turkey! This excursion was well organised and value for money. We were met as arranged outside McDonalds near Hadrian’s Gate and transported by air conditioned minibus to the port. We stopped at a very touristy place for breakfast or just coffee and shopping on the way. Once on the boat we stopped at 3 beaches including Suluada where we swam, dived off the boat, snorkelled and suntanned. The boat ride was peaceful and the music only started a bit later once everyone was in the mood. The lunch was good enough, fresh and tasty. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Most important the captain was very aware of photos opportunities and went out of the way to surprise us with the beautiful coastal grottos and caves. The trip home was quicker than in the morning! What a pleasurable day!

The whole experience was amazing, the transfers were on time, the boat crew was great and are professionals and they now what they are doing. The stops at three different beeches were flawless and not too much crowded either, I think we got lucky and the lunch was an option of grilled fish or chicken with pasta, salad, bread and some watermelon; overall it was an amazing experience for our first away holidays after getting married. Worth the price.

This was so far my favorite tour in turkey! I fell in love with views and the sea. the captain and his wife made us a typical delicious turkish lunch that we enjoyed very much! The boat was very comftable and clean and the captain and his wife are extremely kind and nice peopleOn every stop They gave us plenty time to explore and swim Me and my friend had an amazing time, best excursion ever Thank you for such an experience

Ça a été une très belle excursion de détente. Le déjeuner a été très bon avec du poisson frais ou bien de la viande et légumes/pâtes/ris à volonté. Le guide a été discret mais présent et le chauffeur a été très professionnel et attentif dans la conduite du bus. Personnellement je n’ai pas fait la baignade car l’eau été trop froide à mon goût mais beaucoup de gens ont bien profité. Une belle journée à faire.

its amazing!!! one of the must come tour! We have been lead to 3 different well-perserved prestigious beachs, everone was astonishingXD hope you guys have fun with this trip
