    Hey Folks,

    We are going to turkey in a few weeks, the plan is to get lots of diving in as well...

    Just wondering if anyone has been to Kusadasi and has any insights about the diving there, good diving sites and centers...?

    Cheers
    Chris

    I haven't seen them on the board for quite some time but in case you don't get many responses here, try sending WorldWideDiver a PM as they lived and dived in Turkey (not sure where specifically though) for quite a while.

    I haven’t been diving in Kusadasi myself yet. But it is in the Aegean Sea and not very far from Bodrum, where I am living. So the general diving conditions should be quite similar.
    The first thing to know is that foreigners in Turkey are not allowed to dive without a licensed Turkish dive guide.
    As usual in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea you will not see a lot of big fish. With some luck, you will see some Groupers, some Barakudas, may be some Stingrays, with a little luck some Turtles, a lot of Moray Eels, a lot of small fish and lot of other small species.

    Also you will find a lot of ancient pottery.

    There is one dive centre in Kusadasi I can mention, that is the Active Blue Dive Centre.
    I can’t give you a recommendation for them, because I don’t know them personally. But it is the only dive centre in Kusadasi I heard about.

    yes, i can also recommend "Active Blue" divingcentre in Kusadasi.
    They are friendly and have a good accommodation.
    I was for the 10th time in Kusadasi and this is the best diving centre. I 'v try 't many other the years before. Good service!
    Have a good time in Kusadasi en make some nice save dives with "Active Blue".
