Water Sports

The crossroads of Europe and Asia surrounded by the Black Sea, the Mediterranean, and Aegean and Marmara seas, Turkey is the heart of water sports. Turkey is a peninsula awaiting its visitors to explore the seas of magnificently unique regions.

Sailing which has originated from the perfect harmony of boat and wind, is nowadays categorized as recreational sailing and race sailing. Many coastal areas specifically by the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas offer beautiful spots and excellent winds where one can let go with the waves and take pleasure in sailing. Bursa, Izmir, Muğla and Adana are some of the coastal provinces popular for their strong winds.

Rafting, a team sport aimed at steering a raft without getting overturned among wild waves, is a popular sports activity in many locations from north to south of Turkey. Rivers with varying degrees of difficulty from 1 to 6 such as Manavgat in Antalya province, Firtina in Rize and Çoruh River in Artvin province invite rafting enthusiasts to embark on a rafting adventure and revel in the foaming waters.

Turkey attracts particular attention for its diving centers in the Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea and the natural beauty of the seas. Numerous diving centers and their experienced teams will open doors to a whole new world where you can experience a different dimension of freedom. A great variety of fish species, coral reefs, wrecks and all other underwater beauties are waiting to welcome diving lovers at diving destinations such as Kaş in Anatlya province, Çeşme in Izmir province and Bodrum in addition to Fethiye in Muğla province.
