    I'll second the Saros Bay option and yet strongly suggest traveling to the southern part of the country where water temperatures would be around 24 degree celsius. Fethiye, Bodrum and Kas have great diving sites. In Kas there is even an artificial underwater archeopark where you can dive to the replica of the Uluburun wreck. Other than that Ayvalik in the northern side of Izmir is also a good option where you can dive to red corals.

    My vote is for Marmaris. I dove with divers delight and they were great! The owner is an ex-turkish navy seal and they know how to take care of people. They even cooked us a full lunch between dives and then took us to the bar afterwards, you cant beat them at all. I was just there in June 08, good times!

    I miss my long tiring weekend dive trips from Ankara. Although I'm originally from Izmir, I don't know dive spots around, though. So, enjoy your advantage being close to warm waters :)
    Cheers...
