EXPLORING THE NATURE AND CULTURE OF THE SEABED
Active & adventurous, Less than 1 hour walking
Enjoy a virtually unique diving experience in the warm and crystal clear waters of Bodrum: coral reefs teeming with life and both ancient and modern artifacts, including the wreck of a DC-47 military plane that you can explore in detail. Once you've finished your underwater explorations, a delicious and well-deserved lunch awaits you on board.
- Underwater exploration of the wreck of a DC-47 military plane and of the large and small coral reefs.
- Lunch on board the boat.
- Whether you're an expert or beginner: if you're a licensed scuba diver, this excursion is perfect for you.
- A boat and a local instructor will be awaiting you in the harbor to discover a colorful and photogenic underwater world.
- The boat will head for the large coral reef, where you'll swim among octopuses, eels, tiny multicolored fish, huge groupers and barracuda.
- The Bodrum seabed guards the remains of ancient shipwrecks, with interesting artifacts such as roman amphorae and more recents ones, like the wreck of a DC-47: a disused twin-engine Turkish Armed Forces airplane that was deliberately sunk, to the delight of fish and divers alike. The remains are in water shallow enough to ensure good visibility, so you can appreciate every detail of the interior and exterior.
- Finally, 200 meters from the large one, you'll find the small coral reef: which is also an explosion of life and color.
- If diving makes you hungry, don't worry: lunch on board is on us!
