Full description
Explore Side’s Underwater Museum, a one-of-a-kind experience in Europe. Take two 20-minute dives into the Mediterranean Sea and experience the 110 sculptures that represent parts of Anatolian history.   After pickup from your hotel in an air-conditioned bus, you’ll drive a short distance to the harbor and walk to the boat. Once on board, you’ll have a safety briefing in each language before sailing out to the Sea. Get your equipment on and then dive underwater with an expert diver and photo team to explore the Underwater Museum. With a depth of only 5-6 meters, this area is accessible for beginners as well as experts.   After your first dive, you’ll have a rest on the boat (approximately 1.5 to 2 hours) and enjoy some lunch. Then, you’ll get to enjoy your second 20-minute dive to continue to explore the Mediterranean Sea and the unique animals and plants that can be found there.

Really good day out, excellent value. Instructors are brilliant the one on one makes it really enjoyable and if you follow a few simple instructions your nerves soon dissappear. Was really impressed at the care they take of you once you are in the water. Great facilities on the boat and a really delicious simple lunch.

Positives first: The price is very good compared to the local tour sellers! The organizer will contact you via Whatsapp the day before the tour and will give you all the information, such as pick-up. Very good! Disadvantage: The ship accommodates a lot of people interested in diving. People are processed like a conveyor belt and there was an incredible tension among the dive team. Still recommended!

After a walk through the old town of Side, we went on a large 3-deck boat. Sun loungers were at the top, where you could switch off and relax. In any case, plan a whole day. With transfer, waiting times and briefing of all passengers, we were on the road for about 10 hours. Drinks and snacks can also be taken away. Otherwise there is water, soft drinks, chips and ice cream on the deck, which you have to pay for €1-2 each. The dive crew was awesome! Since I was very excited at first, my diving instructor (Angela) always calmed me down and gave me security in any case. An unforgettable experience, which we can only recommend, accordingly the price-performance ratio is great!
