Diving off the Turquoise Coast
Scuba diving in Kaş, Turkey

If a cruise around the harbor at Kaş isn’t enough to stir your adventurer’s spirit, perhaps a scuba dive will do the trick? Kaş is on the southwest coast of Turkey, in the region known as the Turquoise Coast, so named for the vibrant blue waters of both the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. It’s a popular stop for visitors on a ‘blue cruise’ of the area aboard traditional Turkish sailing vessels known as gulets. Under the surface, divers can explore shipwrecks in the harbor, both real and replicas, and hobnob with the local marine life.

Kaş is a small fishing, diving, yachting and tourist town, and a district of Antalya Province of Turkey, 168 km west of the city of Antalya. As a tourist resort, it is relatively unspoilt.
