About the Attractions

Underwater Museum

  • The underwater museum began operating in 2015 and becomes more popular each season. There are 110 sculptures and monuments made from eco-friendly materials on the seabed. The creators' vision is for a new coral reef to form here, providing a home for many marine creatures and improving the Mediterranean ecosystem.
  • At depths ranging from 9 to 25 meters, you will see a massive statue of Neptune, the Temple of Apollo, whirling dervishes, warriors fighting for their country's independence, scenes from ancient mythology, blooming gardens, and much more.

Diving: Suitable for Beginners?

We also provide modern boats equipped with everything needed for a comfortable and safe journey, preparation for diving, and post-dive relaxation. With us, you'll feel completely safe!

Who Should Avoid Diving?

  • Despite its allure, diving has a long list of contraindications. For example, pregnant women, people with respiratory, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal system diseases, or central nervous system disorders are not allowed to dive. In other cases, a preliminary consultation with your doctor is required.

With or Without a Child?

  • Children can dive from the age of 14.
  • Minors are allowed on board only when accompanied by parents.
  • Parents with young children shouldn't miss out on diving – while one dives, the other can have fun and entertain the child on the yacht, swim in the open sea, or sunbathe.

Ideal Time

  • Although the tourist season in Turkey runs from April to October, the best time for diving is from May to September, when the water temperature reaches up to 30°C. At depth, the water will be 5 degrees cooler.


  • Diving in Side is not just about exploring the underwater flora and fauna; it's a visit to a unique underwater museum, the second largest in the world, with exhibits connected to Turkey's distinctive culture and rich history!
  • The advantage of diving in Side is that almost anyone can do it. It will be interesting for both experienced divers and those diving for the first time. Our professional instructors will help you choose equipment, provide theoretical training, and be by your side during the dive.
