Diving in Bodrum

Diving in Bodrum
Bodrum is one of Turkey’s most important diving locations; the rich marine life and archaeological ruins offer divers a fascinating underwater world.

BIG REEF

By boat it takes about 20 minutes to get there, goes to a depth of 28-32 metres and it’s possible to see Grouper, Merou, Bream and Liche.

SMALL REEF

Popular with the local dive schools, its 200 metres from Big Reef and has the same marine life as Big Reef.

KARGI ISLAND

This is one of the best local dive spots; it’s just off the Akyarlar headland and the nearest point to the island of Kos. It takes 1.5 hours to reach by boat, has a lighthouse at the top of the island and has a variety of different fish.

KÖÇEK ISLAND

This small rocky island is between Kargi Island and Bodrum. There are barracuda and bream here along with large fan mussel and triton shellfish.

BLACK ISLAND - KAÇAKÇI BAY (Smuggler’s Cove)

Another popular place for diving schools, this bay is at the back of Black Island. There is an entrance to a cave 1 metre down that leads inwards for 40-50 metres and is strongly recommended to only enter the cave with a professional diving instructor.

BLACK ISLAND - DELIK CAVE

On the Kos side of Black Island and has two underwater caves. The first reaches a depth of 15 metres and has a very narrow entrance. The second has a depth of 20-30 metres but a wider entrance of 12-14 metres. There is a hole in the roof of the cave that leads up and exits at a depth of 6-7 metres and once inside the cave it is possible to see scorpion fish, langoustine and lobster.

BLACK ISLAND - AKSONA HEADLAND

This is on the Gokova side of Black Island and at certain times of the season can have a strong surface current.

YASSIKAYA ISLAND

This is on Black Island’s southernmost part. The side that faces Black Island is shallow, has a lot of seaweed and not really suitable for diving. On the opposite side and on most dives you can get to see Moray Eel, Grouper, Merou, Bream and Lobster.

ORAK ISLAND

Situated in the Gulf of Gokova and 1.5 hours from Bodrum offers topographical features such as good wall dives, a cave with a depth of 32-34 metres where purple sponges can be seen and at a depth of 65-70 metres you will find an underwater wall.
