Fethiye’s Diving Sites
Red IslandThis dive site descends 6-8m (20-24ft) following a natural slope to the seabed that leads on down to 15m (45ft) and at 20m (60ft) the underwater topography resembles an amphitheatre. It is recommended that you take an underwater light to be able to enjoy the full colour spectrum of sponges and to see the large groupers gliding among them.
Yilmaz's CaveThis cave was discovered by Colonel Yilmaz and although it is quite dark inside there is always enough oxygen to breathe.
Tarzan BayThis dive site is suitable for both beginners and experienced divers as it has good entry and exit points. The entrance leads into 5m (16ft) of crystal clear water where there are all kinds of small fish found among amphora that have been laying on the seabed for 1000s of years.
Eagles Nose BayThis dive site starts at the depth of 9-12m (27-36ft) and is one of the most pleasurable where you will want to stay underwater for as long as possible. Here you can see, touch and play with sponges, and other marine life here includes sea spiders, starfish, octopus, squid and other varieties of fish swimming amongst the 3000 year old amphora lying on the seabed.
Aquarium BayThis dive area resembles a lagoon and is home to very beautiful orange sponges, giant grouper, octopus, red mullet, sandfish, comber, damselfish, black eyes and clown fish, and as they are used to divers here they will actually feed from your hand.
Aquarium ReefThis is an interesting dive that has good drop off points along the reef where moray eels are often sighted. When you reach a depth of 20-25m (60-75ft) you will see the resident groupers and under the rocks here sea scorpion fish are often spotted.
Dalyan BayThis is one of the most popular bays for beginners and experienced divers alike due to its shallow water and abundant sea life. This small bay is home to large groupers, rainbow wrasse, octopus, cuttlefish, damselfish, fork tail, red mullet, clown, parrot and cardinal fish that are so used to divers they will feed from your hand.
Big ReefThe reef is a short distance from Dalyan Key, is in 10m (33ft) of water and is a small underwater hill that drops off to 60m (200ft) on the wall side. On the descent you are able to see many varieties of fish and marine life and the spectacular view of the reef offers visitors a fascinating experience.
Cavern Drop OffThis is a great dive offering breath taking drop offs and a spectrum of colour. Close to the entrance of the dive at 6m (20ft) is a small cavern and home to beautiful coloured strawberry anemone, daisy anemone and Devonshire cup coral. The best drop off looks into 40m (155ft) of seabed where large groupers reside and at the end of the dive you will see the most colourful wall to be found in the Aegean Sea full of fish shoals, soft coral, anemone, sea worms and sponges.
Coral Cavern & Turkish Bath
Octopussy's HoleThis dive site offers a lovely descent down a steep slope to the bottom and around into the hole. The natural light here makes the colours look fantastic although a dive light is essential to be able to fully benefit from the colours on exhibit. As this location is mostly undisturbed there are many large groupers living here that can be seen swimming among the sponges.
Shrimp's HoleThis is located at a depth of 26m (86ft) and large enough to allow 5 or 6 divers to enter at the same time. Divers need to have advanced buoyancy control as it is critical not to disturb the silt at the bottom. Dive lights will help to explore the large mullets, shrimp, soft coral and groupers that hide among the cracks. There is an amazing underwater archway by the exit where photographers can get great shots of their dive partners making an ascent.
