    Going to Italy, Greece, and Turkey on my holiday. would like to go to 2, maybe 3 dive destinations as part of the trip. Leaning towards Malta/ Gozo for one of the choices. Any recommendations for others? I'm more into fish than wrecks, but if there's any really cool submerged ruins I might like to check that out. Hoping to see some squid, cuttlefish, turtles, Rays, Octopi, and Dolphins

    I can only comment on current dive locations in Turkey. I am originally a BSAC UK diver and dived many places in the world. I came here for 2 week and now 5 years later am still here.
    What I can say is if you are interested in fish, no sharks, octopus, good clear viz above all amphora and geology then where we dive is awesome. How many people can dive most days when they want to and say they drive past one of the Seven Wonders of the World (Ephesus) to dive, as we dive at the mouth of the old harbour?


    Here are som pictures and information on a harbour dive

    I hope this gives you some information about local diving here we are 35 mins south of Izmir airport.
    If you need information about the Aegean coast I will try and help
    Regards

    The Diving between Turky, Greece and Italy is very big.
    In Italy you have a lot Fish and colourful Plants. In Turkey and Greece you have more Caves.
    So, its much more Fun in Italy. I prefere Giglio.

    Hi,
    in Italy there are many dive spots, for every scuba levels!
    Liguria (north Italy) especially Portofino Protect Marine Area offers beautiful naturalistic dives (Secca dell'Isuela is one of the top dive site of Mediterranean Sea, top at -14 meters to -55 meters, all covered of corals and a lot of fish), near Genova there is Haven wreck, the biggest wreck of mediterranean sea, a super oiltank ship suitable for expert divers due depth (top at -33 to -90 meters).
    Sardinia is beautiful for diving, I dove only in north to Tavolara Island (Secca del Papa is great!!) and in the east coast to KT12 wreck near Orosei.
    If you are a cold water lover, you can dive at lake Maggiore, Garda or Como Lake :D.
