Turkey Diving Holidays : Diving in Kas

The divesites of Kas belong to the Top 100 diving destinations worldwide. This is because this area have an high amount of underwater life, combined with very clear water (up to 40 meter visibility) and beautiful underwater landscapes. Diving in Kas often remninds you of ancient times: Many very old amphoras and other ancient relicts ( many of them more than 2000 years old ) are waiting for your discovery !

There are around 30 different divesites in Kas , that are all reachable within max 20 minutes starting from the jetty of the divecenter. Diving in Kas/Turkey contains an huge amount of possibilities like wreck-diving, cave-diving, underwater canyons, a lot of stone reefs, swim-throughs & tunnels, nightdiving as well as underwater art exhibitions and many great places for swimming & snorcling. It is a great place for underwater photographers as well.

We do usually 2 divetrips a day . Sometimes, when it is a special, bit far away divesite, full daytrips are done as well. Because the divesites are not far away, the diving boats return to the harbour of Kas after each dive, which makes it easy for you in case, you just want to do one dive a day and don't "waste" all time beeing all day on the boat.

The marine life : Barakuda, Stingrays, Sea-Turtles, rare Sea Slugs & Nudibranches, Dorades, Jackfishes, Soldierfishes, Octopusses, Cuttlefishes ( Sepia ), Stingrays, Muray-Eels, Trumpetfishes, many kinds of Brasses as well as huge Groupers of several kinds and many more amazing underwater lifeforms are to see regulary in this area.

Our diving center in Kas (sunDiving) is conform to highest safety standards and offer all needed periphery, combined with excellent and individual services, that make an unforgetable adventure out of your scubadiving vacation in Kas/Turkey. Hint: Check our online-guestbook for some customer's reviews.

Diving courses of all kinds & levels you can do in Kas as well. If you want learn to dive : This is the right place for you ! Having the choice between CMAS, PADI, BARAKUDA is standard and the quality of courses is high. From the very first step ( Trial Dive ) up to the final scubadiving instructor exam, we offer the complete range of diving education possibilities. That includes of course as well speciality courses such as NITROX ( enriched air diving ), deep-diving, underwater-navigation, search & rescue, underwater photography, wreck-diving, cave-diving, night-diving and many more.

The common procedure is, to do an reservation for a diving package ( or diving course ) at first.

Pre-booked diving packages are of course extensible on site and our divecenter is flexible about, how you use your booked diving package, which means : You don't have to do all dives within your booked package in one step. It is your holiday and we want you to have a good time :-)

Please note : To come for scuba diving to Kas ( Turkey ) without a reservation in advance is not recommended, because it may happen, that ( especially in summertime ) there will be no free place on the dive-boat for you.
