Discover Turkey sailing, scuba diving and snorkelling holidays
If you’re thinking of holidaying in Turkey sailing is one of the most relaxing and edifying ways to see this beautiful country. With its stunning Turquoise Coast offering sunshine, beaches, ancient architecture and modern nightlife, you really do get the best of all worlds, without the crowds often associated with the more popular holiday spots.
While you’re sailing across the usually calm blue waters, it’s worth paying some thought to what lies beneath. As Turkey is surrounded by four seas; the Mediterranean, Aegean, Black Sea and Marmara, there are wonderful opportunities for scuba diving. Break the surface and you’ll discover the remains of ancient civilisations and shipwrecks, and wherever you dive you’ll almost certainly discover pieces of amphora which have lain underwater for hundreds of years.
Whether you’re a complete novice or have plenty of experience scuba diving, there are many diving schools and tours you can join while you’re in Turkey. Make sure you pick a reputable organisation and you’ll be fully briefed before every dive and given plenty of training and tips. If you don’t like the thought of diving right underwater, most places also offer snorkelling opportunities too.
