Start your full-day scuba diving experience with a transfer to the harbor where you will head towards the first dive site. Suitable for beginners and more experienced divers alike, your activity will be tailored to your level of experience. En route to the first dive site, beginner divers will get full diving instructions, while the more experienced divers can choose their equipment. Upon arrival at the first dive site, experienced divers will enter the water first together with 1 or 2 instructors. Beginner divers will make their first dive with an instructor in groups of 2 people. Then, enjoy a warm lunch served aboard the boat as you sail to the second dive site.

Climb aboard the minibus service upon arrival at the harbor for the return transfer to your hotel.

Koprulu Canyon Full-Day Rafting and Canyoning Tour

3. Koprulu Canyon Full-Day Rafting and Canyoning Tour

Enjoy an adventure away from the beaches of Antalya Province with a full-day canyoning and rafting tour in Koprulu Canyon National Park. Transfer from your hotel in Antalya, Alanya, Belek, Kemer, Manavgat or Side to a meeting point approximately 2 kilometers from the start point of your adventure. On arrival, get a safety briefing and instructions before your set off. During the day you will experience 2 very different canyons: a narrow warm water canyon surrounded by sheer rock cliffs for canyoning; and a wide cold water canyon of forested cliffs and natural waterfalls. Pause to swim and dive into crystal clear water, enjoy natural water slides and Jacuzzis, along with other fun activities. Halfway through, enjoy a break to take in the beauty of the Koprulu Canyon and Kopru River. The 1st course (Canyon Course) will take about 1.5 hours to complete. Then, walk through the canyon to a river where your whitewater adventure will take place. The terrain here is rocky with some fast flowing water and some calm water. As the level of difficulty is higher, children under 10 years old are not permitted to take part.

Easy booking and punctual pick-up from the hotel, one day before the event we were contacted about the pick-up, the process was well structured. The diving instruction was offered in various languages, even for me as a newcomer there were no questions or problems. When diving, everything was tested beforehand and you were taken by the hand and guided through the underwater museum. You could then buy the photos and videos you took. Lunch is included and drinks and WiFi cost extra. All in all, we were back at the hotel at around 5 p.m., a little over 8 hours. The proportion of diving was low but the waiting times in between were worth it in my opinion. PS: Divers with a diving license dive alone or without individual supervision and also have almost double the diving time

The rafting/canyoning tour was a complete success. The transfer worked great. The local guides were really great - explained everything and were a lot of fun. Arrived on site, there was a small briefing, you had to get a vest and a helmet (note: it's best to bring your own bathing shoes or buy them there for 8 €). Then we went to canyoning. There you could, among other things, jump off a rock. That was quite adventurous and very beautiful. Then followed the rafting tour. This was also optimal in terms of duration and the sense of adventure. Then there was lunch. Lunch was freshly prepared (chicken skewer, rice, noodles, salad) and was very tasty. However, drinks were not included in the price. It was worth the day and I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Everything organized very well. I was picked up from the hotel, then to Side to the ship. Ship was pretty nice too. Due to the low season we weren't that many people, hence a very pleasant vibe. The staff at the dive center and on the boat were super friendly. Everything went off stress-free, we always had time to lie on the deck in the sun in between. Food was simple but really tasty. Thank you, had a great day

Amazing day out! The Jeep Safari to the canyon is a lot of fun. You can get some amazing pictures there. The rafting is really good fun and the staff were amazing.

Very nice trip, where you are allowed to do as much as you can.
