Scuba diving is a type of diving by breathing high pressure air filled tubes under water. Scuba diving, which is one of the most beautiful activities in the world, requires training first. The diving is recommended for anyone who does not have health problems and loves the sea.
Diving in the blue waters of Antalya as a privilege will be the most memorable of your holiday. You can have your first diving experience in Antalya. The sea of Antalya is ideal for those who want to dive for the first time. There is no dangerous creature in the blue waters of Antalya that may pose a risk for beginners.
Dives are made from a fully equipped dive boat. The diving program for experienced and beginners is different. Those who will dive for the first time are first given a short training by diving instructors. This training will take a basic look at your swimming and breathing skills and will be done in that direction. The aim of this training is to see your diving potential and prepare you for your first diving experience.
For those who will dive for the first time, the depth of the dive will be no more than 5 meters and the dive time will be approximately 30 minutes.
Turkey’s diving rules are quite strict. Those who perform diving operations undergo strict inspection. Diving operation license is very difficult to obtain. Diving organizations and boats are regularly inspected by the coast guard units.

In Turkey, children under 14 years old are prohibited from diving. Children under 14 can come with their parents and spend time on the boat. They can also snorkel. But they can’t do underwater diving.
What are diving equipment?
The main materials used outside the tube in scuba diving are listed as follows. Regulator, backup air supply (or octopus), BC, mask, flippers, diving suit, compass, pressure gauge and depth gauge.
Diving suits protect both the diver from the cold and the possibility of damaging the tiny creatures.
