Diving in Kas / Turkey with Likya
Likya Diving Center was founded in 1985 and it is one of the oldest
diving schools in Kas. We
teach in englisch, german and turkish and
deliver our certificates
according to CMAS, PADI and SSI settlements. Our high safety precautions and medical care by our leader Dr. med. Murat Yildirim in dive center are our strength. Murat is not only a dive instructor, but
is also a swiss educated physician (specialist in anesthesiology
and emergency medicine, and has
"Medical Examiner of Divers"). We are a small diving school
with a very good infrastructure. Our dive center is right
next to the Mediterranean coast, only 2
minutes apart from Kas harbour and city center. The
same called hotel
"Likya" is also a part of us and is one of the best diving hotels here in
Kas with simple, clean and air-conditioned rooms. After diving we meet up at the panoramic rooftop bar of
the Likya hotel for some drinks.
Kas has some of the best dive sites in the eastern
Mediterranean. You can see great reefs, steep walls (drop off), caves, amphora
fields and wrecks. We have all various kinds of marine life: Groupers trigger
fishes, barracudas, octopus, turtles and seals. It has also an impressive
underwaterscenery. The water is very clear and is very good for underwater video and photography! We
have no nearby marine industry or deep sea fishing. All dive
sites are between 10 and 70 minutes sail from the harbor. We start every day at
09:00 from our dive boats "Koerfez"
and "Likya" opposite Kas harbors lighthouse; the
afternoon dive starts at 3:00 p.m. We also organize full day trips, night dives and diving for kids
(minimum 8 years). We have a very high safety-medical precautions also at our Boat.
Most of the time our diving instructor and physician Dr.
med. M. Yildirim is also there with advanced aid-kit during our dive trips. You
don't have to carry your gear - it's brought to the boats by pickup truck and
stays at our supervised boat during your
holiday.Snorkelers and swimmers are welcome on!
Safety first at Likya Dive
Center! We have our own rules at our divingbase and these are identical with most of the
Diving Federation rules. Our dives are depending upon diver's qualification level, but we do not
go deeper than 42 meters (about 130 feet) also with our experienced Divers. We
make no-decompression dives. We plan the dive, and
we dive the plan. We make a safety stop after each dive. But our dive instructor and physician is at boat or at divingbase in case an emergency situation. But we say prevention instead of treatment! Our divers protect the underwater world. Our dive instructor will inform you about the further rules at our base.
Minimum age is 14 years and / or you must have at least one
international recognized diving certificate. You DO NOT have to bring your
medical examination papers, because we can deliver medical dive examinations
"fit to dive" to our dive guests for free (possible only with 10 or more dives and
by dive courses. You need also direct booking for this). In case you have a
severe disease, we
advice you to do this medical examination at your home, or you can bring us your EKG-
and / or lungtests (spirometry). We need a special permission from parents if diver is under 14 Years. Minimum age is at
least 8 Years for "Discover Scuba" dives.
