Scuba Diving in Turkey

 For those enamored with the sport, scuba diving is not only a sport but also a philosophy. Diving provides a way to escape the realities of life above water and to lose oneself in the beauty and serenity of nature. It is peaceful and relaxing, and an experience that can enhance your perception of life. It's also great fun!

Though Turkey is surrounded by beautiful water, scuba diving is permissible in very limited areas only.

Further information regarding the location of specially designated waters can be obtained from sites listed in our Yellow Pages.
