Turkey is not a very well promoted place to dive, except a few touristy spots in the Meditterenean (that is why Turkish Riviera). Yet you would be surprised how interesting dives can be in Aegean Sea, just some 4 hours drive from Istanbul.
First of all, there is SAROZ Bay (40° 30' 0 N, 26° 19' 60 E) with many walls, reefs and rocks. The best season to come and dive is may - august, but many diving clubs operate from april - october.
Then, there is Dardanelles (40° 17' 60 N, 26° 15' 0 E). It takes some knowledge of Turkish history to realize what a strategic point it has been. From German torpedo ship, to British and Anzac boats, Dardanelles has them all. Not all of them are allowed to dive, and many others require a special permit from the Turkish government. Solo dives are not allowed.
Our school, ARGOS Diving CLUB, organizes dives and tours to both locations. You can see more information on our website:
