Dives :

With over 20 dives sites within easy reach of our base you will not be short of variety in your diving programme. We are very lucky in Adrasan, the marine life here is undisturbed and plentiful and we have a wide variety of species to see. We also have remains from the turbulent history of the region which dates back over 3,000 years. Here we can find more than just the ubiquitous amphora, we have tombs that were the cargo of a ship that sank nearly 2,500 years ago, anchors, and the spoils of pirate ships that used nearby coves. Below we have a description of some of the many dives that we do:-

We have over 20 dive sites to choose from and none of them are more than a 45-minute boat trip away. Also as we are the only dive-centre in the area the sites are clean and never crowded. We have provided a review of some of these sites for you.

 

The Bat Cave

The dive begins in open water and leads to a steep wall that sinks down to about 50m. In front of the wall you can see shoals of monkfish and large groupers are often found hanging around as well. Suddenly about 10metres underwater a sizeable hole in the wall appears. This is the entrance to The Bat Cave. Don’t worry about claustrophobia because the hole is about 10 meters wide and can easily contain several divers at the same time. The hole bores about 15metres into the cliff and if you’re lucky you can catch the amazing view of a few mackerel at the exit. Next you come to a small bend that marks the beginning of a 30m long tunnel. In the cave itself you can spot many prawns, sea cucumbers and crabs. The tunnel is located at a depth of 5 metres, which makes it ideal for safety stops.

 

Leek Island

Leek island is located at the mouth of the bay of Adrasan and is so called due to the wild leeks that grow on it. It is ideal for steep slope and current (drift) dives. We jump in right at the northern end where the wall drops away to almost 80 metres. We slowly drop to 20 metres until a large dark hole appears in front of us. We are at the mouth of a huge cave. The entrance itself is covered with fantastic small underwater life forms such as anemones and the cylinder rose. Many  Mediterranean fairy basslet swim in front and if you glance deeper you will frequently spot large groupers and greater  amberjack. If you dive into the cave you can often find yourself amidst prawns and hermit crabs. After studying the cave we continue our dive along the wall towards the surface. The wall itself is covered in beautiful red algae with moray eels and octopuses hiding in the cracks.

 

 

Hacivat

Hacıvat is a sharp pointed cliff named after a classical Turkish joker. The boat anchors in about 10m of water. We swim directly down onto the cliff top and then reach a canyon wonderfully overgrown with red sea sponges. Having dived through the canyon we swim along a reef that continues until just below the water’s surface. The stony seabed falls gently away and along it there are many antique relics to be seen. If you glance at the reef wall you may find yourself being watched by shoals of monkfish. At the far end the reef climbs over a steep wall that plunges down until about 40 metres. This is where large Dragon Heads and red mullet feel at home. Leaving the wall the reef climbs up once again and is perfectly designed for surfacing.

 

 

5 Islands

5 Islands is often the second part of a day trip for us. For a long time this area was barred for divers by the military and archaeologists. Now finally we can explore it. There are many steep walls and very clear water filled with a variety of fish. In addition there is an underwater mountain, which rises from a great depth to about 20 metres. We have a current dive, which requires the use of a rope to overcome the strong currents. This takes us down to the top of the reef where we can sit and watch shoals of fish passing us by. We often see Lamb Fish, which come to check out what we are doing. They will swim right in front of your mask so you get a real close up of hunting fish that weigh up to 40Kgs! There are also some 2,500-year-old Lycean Tombs on the seabed that are all that remains of an ancient wreck.

 

 

The Wreck of The PARIS

The Paris is a French warship (a gunboat) that was built for the First World War and sank during the Second World War. The Paris was powered by a steam engine and now lies at a depth of 20—30m. The site of the wreck is near Kemer which is a large tourist resort. We organise a day trip to dive the site early in the day, before the crowds get there, and combine the dive with shopping in Kemer town before heading back via a dive at Three Islands.

 

 

Night Dives

As night time falls under the water a host of new sea life comes out and our secluded bay is an ideal spot to see the evening performance! We dive both from the beach and sometimes from the boat. In fact most of the night time treats are easily found from a beach dive. On the dives we will see Cuttle-Fish, Shrimps, Eels and this year we have a resident Turtle who sleeps every night under some trees that have washed down the river, at the edge of the bay, during winter storms. These are forming a natural reef and an ideal spot for our friend to get some rest. The peace of a night dive and the eerie spectre of our lamps exploring the still crystal waters is an experience not to be missed.
