Popis lokality You need a licenced officiale dive guide  
Diving conditions are excellent throughout  
the diving season, April to November, and  
clear blue waters with viz. of up to 30 metre  
is the norm. The underwater landscape is  
varied with reefs, walls, drop-offs and caverns.  
Marine life may not be as profuse as that  
found in tropical seas but on most dives one  
will encounter a range of species of fish  
including groupers, morays, stingrays, and  
The observant diver will spot different  
types of nudibranchs grazing on marine plants  
and a variety of other molluscs - some like the  
octopi not as tiny but master of camouflage. 
For those who enjoy diving along remote reefs in small groups and are willing to trade in their hotel room for a bed right under the Mediterranean starry firmament, a dive cruise on our safari boats, is just what they are looking for. 
A liveaboard is an ideal way to explore the unspoiled south west coast line betwen Kas, Kalkan and Kekova.  
It is an area with rich historic remains, many of them on the coast and under the sea.
