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.

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

Really good day out, excellent value. Instructors are brilliant the one on one makes it really enjoyable and if you follow a few simple instructions your nerves soon dissappear. Was really impressed at the care they take of you once you are in the water. Great facilities on the boat and a really delicious simple lunch.

At the beginning we were picked up and driven for almost 10 minutes. The guide then ran with us through the city to the port. The only negative point is that he was so quick and didn't make sure everyone was catching up. The diving was really nice! You went on two excursions, each with your own teacher at hand. The first dive was for photos and warming up and was 7 meters. The second time it was 10 meters and the museum was asked. The dive instructors were all very attentive and friendly. Lunch was very good too. As a farewell we got some melon. During the trip on the sea you had time to sunbathe. The ship had three floors and there was definitely enough space. It wasn't crowded. The prices are ok too. For all photos 35€. Unfortunately, you can only buy them all together. Definitely a recommendation. At around 5 o'clock in the evening we were back at the hotel.
