Diving in Kaş
Kaş is not only a little Turkish paradise located on the Mediterranean Sea to spend some time relaxing under the sun and appreciating the local food; it is also a place very much appreciated by divers from all over the World. In fact, here is where the best dive sites of Turkey are found, suiting all levels of divers.
There are over 25 dive sites around Kaş, which can be reached within maximum 20 minutes by boat. Sunken airplanes and boats wrecks of different sizes and ages in varied depths, tunnels, caves, drop offs and amphoras can be seen and explored under these beautiful Turkish waters.
The marine life is very limited; there are almost no colorful corals or “fish soup”. However, for my surprise, octopuses, morel eels, jack fishes, stingrays and turtles – plenty of turtles of different species – can often be spotted around here, and I’m sure that any diver would be happy to swim along with them. Below you can see all the existent marine life around Kaş in an official chart I found on the boat:
I was in Kaş for 10 days and had the opportunity to dive in 10 different dive sites, to swim side by side with a turtle, to see a baby turtle, octopuses, stingrays, a morel eel, lots of jack fishes, at least 4 boats and 2 airplanes wrecks and finished the PADI Advanced Open Water dive course. So yes, mission accomplished! Together with W and the amazing team of Naturablue, I now am an AOW diver!
I was really impressed by the amazing service provided by Naturablue. I have found them on a German diving magazine – an article that convinced me to visit Kaş – and contacted them for more information. From beginning to end they were very kind, helpful and concerned about our safety. We had different instructors and each one of them taught us something new and helped us to be better divers.
The Naturablue diving center has its own boat, where all the dive gear is located and with plenty of space, including a top deck where is possible to relax and work on your tan. They can arrange transfer to the airport, as well as accommodations if requested. The entire team is like a family, who provided us amazing dives and a wonderful time in Kaş, our choice couldn’t have been better. Thank you Naturablue family, we sure now have some new friends for life…
I highly recommend diving in Kaş, even for the more advanced divers and for those who already had the opportunity to dive in amazing places. Here, there are dive sites for everyone, especially for those who appreciate exploring wrecks; so if you are ever on Turkish lands, don’t miss spending some time in this little gem for divers.
