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.

Great way to get to know diving

The trip took about 5 hours, plus transfer. Start is in the port of Side Altstadt. Brief instruction was given in English, German, Russian and, of course, Russian if required. The whole thing was very understandable. After about 2 hours the first dive started. Each participant is provided with an experienced diver who is only responsible for this one participant (while in the water). On the first dive you get used to breathing, dive slowly and go down to about 6m depth. What an amazing feeling if you've never done it before. Photos and a video are taken. 30 euros per person, 50 euros as a couple, 40 euros without video, no negotiation. We received 81 good quality pictures for this. The second dive is a little more intense and exciting, it goes down to about 15-20m depth (my depth gauge was not quite ok, which is why I can only estimate) and there was a lot to see.

Superfun diving, I have a diving license and it worked perfectly. My mom came with me and she doesn't have any license. The staff and diving instructors where superfriendly and funny. It is alot of waiting between the dives but totalt worth it. For you whom easily get seasick you should take a pill before this activity. I am super satisfied with this experience.

Es war echt super, die Trainer waren richtig cool und nett und sprachen perfekt deutsch. Als Anfänger geht jeder mit einem eigenen Trainer tauchen. Mein Sohn ist 12 und war das erste mal Tauchen und die Trainer haben sich richtig Zeit für ihn genommen. Es gibt 2 Tauchgänge a 20min. Zwischen den beiden Tauchgängen gibt es essen. Fotos und Videos können für 30EUR pro Personauf dem Boot gekauft werden, diese werden dann gleich auf euer Handy geladen. PS ihr dürft auch eure eigene Unterwasserkamera mitbringen.
