Fethiye scuba diving is a 9-hour excursion for first-timers and professionals. Two dives in a day to see rich marine life of the Aegean Sea.
Scuba diving in Fethiye offers a world that few can experience. It’s an opportunity to see the sea from a different perspective and to get up close to it.
The underwater world, flooded by the sun’s rays, plays with unimaginable colours. The diving itself consists of two dives (the first is a training dive, the second is a deeper dive). In between there is a break for relaxation and lunch.
This tour is suitable for those who have never been scuba diving and for experienced divers. Scuba diving for beginners. If scuba diving is something you’ve thought about but haven’t ventured into, don’t be afraid.
On our diving tour you will be accompanied by experienced instructors, which will help you to quickly get the hang of it. Each instructor accompanies only a couple of divers, this is necessary for your safety. Please pay attention to this when choosing a tour. If there is only one instructor on the boat, it is simply dangerous. You must be under the watchful eye of an experienced escort at all times. Diving depths are 3 to 5 metres.
Diving for PADI license holders. You will dive with your instructor, separately from the group, your depth will be up to 20 meters, time of each dive will be longer, than for the group – about 30-45 minutes (you will be provided with larger tanks). For guests. While your friends or family are busy exploring the depths, you can snorkel or just swim and sunbathe.
Both transfers, lunch, two dives, professional instructor, insurance and all equipment are included in the ticket price.
Beneath the shimmering waters of the Mediterranean, just off the coast of Fethiye, lies a new world of wonder, just waiting for you to swim by and discover. The crystal clear waters of the region are ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling, with visibility up to 25 metres ahead. From the moment you ‘go overboard’ you will be welcomed into the world below.
A world where barracuda swim among colourful sponges and the pink lacy coral grows in abundance. The underwater caves and tunnels are waiting in this silent world for you to come and explore. This undersea world is home to octopus and starfish also. You are likely to meet the odd caretta caretta turtle, famous in this region.
They lay their eggs on Iztuzu beach several miles west of Fethiye, where they are protected until hatched by roped off areas. Imagine hundreds of their babies hatching around the same time and running down for the safety of the dark waters. They grow to incredible lengths and cover immeasurable mileage on their journeys and are often seen by divers in the Fethiye area.
While you dive you will see ancient amphora and maybe even buildings of antiquity that have sunk to the bottom of the sea bed over the millennia. Evidence of cities long past that once graced the surface world, coming alive once more in the silence of the undersea world.

Your tour begins when you are picked up from your hotel, usually between 08:30 and 09:00 depending on your location and brought to the dive boat waiting in the harbour for you. You will be greeted as you board, by Captain and crew and given a safety talk. Then taken to a shallow area where you can test out the use of the scuba apparatus, before heading out for your first dive.
With two dives throughout the course of the day, one before lunch and one after, you can use the snorkelling equipment in between dives, or there is also a sunbathing deck upstairs on the boat, where you can relax and catch some rays (suns rays of course).
If you have friends or family that would like to come along and watch they may do so. Often known as ‘bubble watchers’ they can take your photograph or sunbathe or simply use the snorkelling equipment themselves.
Please note that lunch is usually a light affair so as to ease your second dive of the day.

If you are over the age of 14 you can dive. In fact, even if you can hardly swim, the buoyancy of the wetsuit helps to give you confidence. After all, you will be swimming below the waterline and not trying to stay on top. What you cannot do is change your mind and ask to scuba, when you have paid for a watcher ticket. The tanks are filled prior to departure and usually only carry enough air for those who have requested to scuba dive on booking.
Pick up and return to and from your Fethiye hotel is included, plus the dive boat throughout your tour. This will be accompanied by professional staff, all qualified in safety and scuba diving. You never dive alone! Your ‘buddy’ will be with you constantly, guiding you through your dive, and whose services are included in the price of your ticket.
All scuba and snorkelling equipment will be provided in your ticket price.
A light lunch on board is also included plus hot drinks. Cold drinks are purchasable on board.
These things plus insurance, will ensure your enjoyment and peace of mind.

Some money for optional extra expenditure, mainly cold drinks or snacks extra to your lunch. There will also be a photographer on board who is there to catch you on your dive adventure. You may wish to purchase any photographs or DVD of you diving or just relaxing having a good time.
Also do bring your camera or mobile phone for those photographs you may want to take yourself. The coastline is extravagantly beautiful and the waters are blue and warm and you wouldn’t want to miss those golden moments.
