This dive site sees us turning to the left out of the Dalyan river into the open sea towards Bacardi Beach. We anchor our boat near to the shore in the shallow bay of Bozburun. The Bozburun Bay is shaped like a bowl and here we find many interesting and unusual shaped rocks under the water which has a maximum depth of around 16 metres The rocks have been shaped by the sea over many years as the sandstone has been eaten away for form mushroom shaped rocks and rocks which have large holes in them.

In Bozburun Bay we can find a lot of fish and other creatures that like to live around the holes and caverns such as Groupers, Soldier Fish and Octopus. We can also find the remains of ancient amphora’s in the waters of the bay.

As we go further out from the shore the depth increases to around 35 metres until we reach the drop off, this is a wall that plunges a further 20 metres straight down. Here you will have the sensation of flying, it seems that even the fish swim vertically here. On the wall we are able to see sponges and plants in all sorts of beautiful colours.


After passing through the channel connecting the Dalyan River to the open sea we make a right turn towards Ekincik Bay. Approximately half way towards Ekincik Bay we come to the entrance of The Cave which has a depth of approximately 8 metres, The entrance to The Cave itself is very large, therefore it is easily achievable for a not so experienced diver to find out what it is like to go into an underwater Cave.

Just behind the first cave there is a second cave with a much smaller entrance, this second cave can also be entered by divers, however, due to its size it is only suitable and recommended for the more experienced diver. The second cove has openings in the ceiling through which natural light enters through and creates beautiful disco light effect shapes in the water.

After leaving The cave, we can continue down to around 20 30 metres where a huge rock is found, you can see Amphoras and sponges of all colours, Tube worms, Sea cucumbers, Triton shells, starfish, octopus. Lobsters and many small and large varieties of fish.


Our boat will throw the anchor down straight above the wreck of the Kurt, an old Gulet which is roughly 40 metres long and sank around 13 years ago after hitting the top of an underwater mountain which rises from the bottom of the sea to around 1 metre from the surface.

The rock itself is a reef out in the open sea where thousands of fish, sea urchins and starfish live and breed. The abundance of small fish attract and are preyed upon the larger hunting fish.

The wreck of the Kurt itself rests at a depth of between 7 and 14 metres, we are also able to find further remains and pieces of furniture. If you look closely you will be able to see ancient remains under certain parts of the more modern wreck.


Beginners Bay is one of our dive locations past Ekincik Bay and close to Kizilburun. For those who are discovering Scuba Diving and absolute beginners, this is the perfect place to start. The depth in Beginners Bay starts nice and shallow and the crystal clear waters give plenty of opportunity so see Rainbow Wrasse, baby Fish and of course Groupers, various types of combers, soldier Fish, Sea Bream, Parrot Octopus, occasionally you might get the chance to see Barracuda that sometimes visit the area.

The diving in Beginners Bay commences from the pebble beach and very slowly descends to between 3 and 5 metres, here we find the remains of amphoras, plenty of rocks where the fish are usually hiding and growing Tube Worms. It is here that we can also play with the Wrasses.

The experienced divers are able to go deeper down to around 25 metres, passing a field of sea grass where the dusky groupers and the gold blotch groupers hunt.


Past the Bay of Ekincik Stingray Bay is a beautiful little bay which can make you feel like you are diving in an aquarium. We anchor our boat close to the shore where the water is shallow and clear. At a depth of 5 metres a field of sea grass is found and to the left and right of this starts the rocky slopes. The mountains around the bay continue to be seen deep down and below the water.

On the rocky slopes we can see the remains of amphoras, sponges growing on the rocks plenty Sea Cucumbers, sea Urchins and of course many fish. Just around the corner of where the slope turns into large steps there is a good chance that you might see Stingrays concealing themselves under the sand, waiting camouflaged in anticipation for prey. The slope continues for about 45 metres, this is therefore and good pla to be able to tailor the dive towards the experience of the diver(s).


This dive site is right next to Beginners Bay, and normally we start our dive from the North side and head towards Beginners Bay. The Pinnacle is an underwater mountain which rises from a depth of around 40 metres up to less than 2 metres from the surface.

As we come from the North we first pass a huge field of sea grass, here you may be able to spot the creatures which hide from the hunting fish like Combers and Groupers. It is also possible sometimes see Sea Horses and it’s cousin the Pipe Fish.

Further to the West pass several big rocks at a depth of between 15-30 metres we where sponges and Tube worms live. We start our swim from here towards Beginners Bay where are able to see more Groupers.


Whoever said that you always need a boat to go diving, will certainly be proved wrong here Asi bay is one of the best dive sites in the area, if not one of the best dive in Asi bay. sites in Turkey. However, if we attempt to go by boat to Asi Koyu it would take approximately 2 hours to get there from Dalyan, so our best choice is to head off in our own mini bus which only takes around 40 minutes.

In the middle of this remote and idyllic paradise like bay there is a small island, here you can find Groupers, small Damsel Fish coming for a cleanup, some Moray Eels and sometimes even Rays can be found. The beautiful remains of Turkeys’ ancient history can also be found in the discovery of the antique amphora’s.

At the right side of the bay there are four caves found next to each other One of the caves is in the shape of a tunnel, the way the light plays with the water makes this one of the most unforgettable dive sites, and if you thought that coral is needed to create colours underwater, then you can check out the beautiful sponges in every colour in and around the caves to show that not only corals can be responsible for such beauty under the water.


This is the closest dive-site to the entrance of the Dalyan River and the best change to see the caretta caretta.
