Let's examine the details of Alanya Snorkel Tour from beginning to end.
See the view of the Red Tower and the Castle from the sea, enter the Alanya shipyard by swimming.
The first stop of our tour will be Kızıl Kule and Alanya shipyard, 2 nautical miles from the harbor. This place is one of the most beautiful places in Alanya to take pictures. You can go to the shipyard by swimming during the break. It is also a beautiful area for snorkeling.
Due to underwater reefs, both the sea floor is rich and the water is clear. Rocks include a variety of marine plants, sea urchins, and shellfish. It is the breeding ground for marine mollusks such as octopus, squid and cuttlefish. The colorful sarpa fish are worth seeing.
We visit the caves around the Alanya castle and go to the Cleopatra beach.
Alanya castle is located on a peninsula. The surrounding of the peninsula is full of steep slopes and cliffs. It is impossible to reach many points of the castle on foot. The only and the most fun way to see the natural beauty around the castle is to sail around by boat.
You will be able to see dolphins and sea turtles while sail around the peninsula. We will visit three caves on our way to Cleopatra beach.
- Pirates Cave: It is the cave used as a loot storage by pirates who used to live in Alanya.
- Lovers Cave: It is 24 meters above sea level on the slope of the castle. According to the legend, the pirates used to hide the women they kidnapped in this cave.
- Phosphoric Cave: It's name comes from phosphorescent glow of the cave.
Swimming and snorkeling break at Cleopatra beach
Welcome to the beach where the Egyptian queen Cleopatra swims. The beach starts at the end of the castle peninsula. The water is always clear. The sea floor is completely covered with golden sand. It is one of the best beaches in Antalya.
Snorkeling is enjoyable due to its clear water. We snorkel where the sand-covered seafloor merges with the castle slope. While one side of you is sandy as much as possible, the other side is the rocks, which are the shelter and hunting areas of sea creatures. Thus, when you dive with snorkeling, you can see most of the rich Mediterranean fauna and flora.
Enrich your holiday album with underwater photos.
Bring your underwater camera with you and take impressive photos in the clear waters of the Mediterranean. If you don't have an underwater camera, It is not a problem. There is a professional photographer in the boat. If you want, you can take photos from photographer and buy photos at the end of the tour.
If you want, you can also participate in water sports activities here. Let us remind you that water sports are not included in the tour price.
We set out for the first fish pasture for fishing and snorkeling.
We leave Cleopatra beach and go to the coastline of Mahmutlar town for the first fish pasture of the tour. Enjoy the magnificent view of Alanya and the Taurus mountains during the journey.
When we come to the fish pasture, we give fishing rods and fish baits to those who want to fish. Those who don't want to fish can snorkel, swim or just enjoy the sun on the boat.
After fishing, we take a break for lunch. There is grilled chicken, meatballs, pasta and salad for lunch. All soft drinks are free throughout the tour. After a satisfying lunch, we set off towards Kargicak for our second fishing point.
The variety of fish is higher in Kargıcak. Also here the human population is low throughout the year. Beaches are great for snorkeling. The habitat of Kargicak is quite different from other parts of Alanya. The sea floor is generally rocky and indented.
After we finish our snorkeling and fishing tour in Kargicak, we return to Alanya harbor to return to the hotels. We will be at the harbor around 15:00 on average. At around 15:30 we will drop you off at your hotels.
Fish types you can catch on a fishing and snorkeling tour
The fish pastures we visit are among the most productive pastures in Alanya in terms of fish diversity. The fish species most frequently caught by our guests in the fish pastures are Balloon, Melanuria, Sea Bass, Ray-finned, Sea bream, Bonito, Mackerel, Red porgy.
But don't expect to catch very big fish. Although the Mediterranean is rich in fish diversity, there are less fish compared to other seas. The main reasons for this situation are as follows.
- The Mediterranean is one of the saltiest seas in the world.
- Uncontrolled fishing.
- New invasive species entering the Mediterranean via the Suez Canal.
In addition, the actual hunting time of the fish is between 4 and 6 in the morning. However, due to our tour concept and lack of demand, we do not organize this tour at these hours.
Alternatively, we also have a professional fishing tour hobby activity in Alanya. This tour is organized for professional fishing only.
