The most popular dive sites are as follows for qualified divers:

Aladins Cavern:  The dive in the first cavern is a maximum of 30m and where  one can see shrimp and corals covering the walls and exit and follow the wall along to the 'Turkish Bath' part of the dive where you can surface inside the mountain and look at the scenery.  

SG121 Wreck:  Descending down the bouy line to a maximum of 27m you can explore the outside of the wreck and then make our way inside where you can explore the cabins, engine room and other compartments.

Mexican Hat:  Dive down to a maximum 30m can explore the small cavern full of shrimp and other marine life before taking the trip through the short tunnel where fresh water meets sea water and experience the thermoclines and haziness of the water mixing.

Aquarium Reef:  This site lives up to its name being just like an aquarium.  This is where we are likely to see schooling barracuda and jackfish as well as an abundance of nudibranch and typical Mediterranean marine life.  Normally done as an afternoon dive to a maximum of 18m.  

Dalyan Bay:  Where a beginner can start their first diving experience.The bottom slopes gently down to our fish feeding rock where you can personally feed the numerous bream and bass.
