Holiday in Fethiye is not only sea and sun bathing. Different sport activities will help you to explore your potential and make new iends.image

    The boats that carry tens of diving fans depart from Fethiye every day early in the morning. There are two main diving opportunities in this tour, each around 30 minutes. These are called discovery diving tours. 

    All instructors are certified from International authorities like PADI, CMAS and BSAC. If you like underwater, comfortable under or above the sea, you can even take a whole course during your holiday week to get the basic certification..

    Courses are split into two, theory and practical. Courses covering the theory of diving are usually given after your dinner for 1hr everyday on the deck. Practical sessions include application of theory during the day diving courses. You can read and study your diving courses when you are on the boat cruising for another diving spot. During your journey, you can spot sea turtles or even sometimes dolphins. Under the water you will see octopus, barracuda and lobsters.
