Diving in Bodrum is for tourists who do not want to sit in one place. It belongs to active entertainment, including paragliding, jeep safari, rafting, and quad biking. If you have been fond of the programs of Jacques Yves Cousteau since childhood, love the films "The Abyss" and "The Amphibian Man", then be sure to choose this tour. During the dive, you can see how rich the underwater world is, how many different marine life are here: stingrays, moray eels, turtles, crabs, and various fish. Some may be lucky enough to meet dolphins. Coral reefs, brightly colored sponges, mysterious grottoes, and underwater caves - all this diversity awaits tourists in Bodrum.
Since the climate in the region is warm enough and there are no cold currents, the sea temperature never drops below 15 degrees. Due to this, Diving Centers in Bodrum are open all year round. The most favorable months for diving are from May to October. This is especially true for diving for beginners. It is better to make your first dive when the sea temperature is about 23-24 degrees.
The excursion will begin after the gathering of all participants in the dive center, where everyone will undergo a short briefing on safety rules, pick up equipment and go on a yacht to the open sea. Bodrum is washed by the Aegean Sea, it is slightly cooler than the Mediterranean but more transparent and clean.
The best places for diving in Bodrum are the sunken military plane, the Big Reef, the Black Island with very rich flora and fauna, and the Bubble Cave, the entrance to which is located at a depth of 12 meters. All locations are in absolutely free access, and the immersion there depends only on your skills and abilities.
If you have a Schengen visa in your passport, then you should definitely book a tour of the island of Kos from Bodrum. Visiting Greece while on holiday in Turkey is a unique and highly beneficial offer.
Since many tourists are vacationing with families, many are worried about the question - at what age children can go diving in Turkey. Generally accepted PADI standards allow diving from the age of 8. The maximum depth will be 1-2 meters, under the close supervision of an instructor. From the age of 10, a child can already receive a Junior Open Water Diver certificate. With this document, you can dive to a depth of 12 meters. Our tourists usually start classes at the age of 9 with written parental consent. We can organize training for adults, and at the end of your vacation, you will have an international Open Water Diver certificate.
