    When do you plan to go there? For how many days do you plan to stay there and is there a specific location or wreck do you want to see?

    I don't have current plans to go there, I would do it linked with an Egypt travel (tk stopover in Istanbul). I'm not sure I will do it in 2017, but it would likely be in the summer.
    I would like to see Gallipoli wrecks.

    When you have much more specific plans keep in touch with me. If I'm around we can dive together or at least I'll recommend someone to you. As far as I understand you would like to make a recreational diving not a technical one. Also you don't want to dive to a specific ship like HMS Majestic which requires special permissions in order to dive. It is easy to make this kind of recreational diving arrangements.

    Thanks for your help.

    Well, not getting any answers didn't incite me into looking more in depth in what wrecks would looks like and which one would interest me more, so I don't remember much from my pas researches.
    Regarding to tek/rec dives, that pretty much depend on the definitions in your country, its legislation, the kind of wrecks available and of course the cost.
    Ideally I prefer diving solo, and do long penetrations. If real penetrations at deeper than 40-45m I prefer trimix, if outside of the wrecks deep air up to 60m. In the 30m-40m+ range, nitrox can be nice. For deeper air dive, o2 for deco is nice. I might do a few deeper dive on trimix, but I'm pretty prudent with a boat/captain/ etc that I don't know except when it has a stellar reputation.
