One anchor spot is located at the southeastern tip oof the island. From the dive boat you will follow in southeastern direction the slope of the island, over terraces into a depth of more than 50m. Because of the terraces the place is anyway suitable for divers of all levels. Simply stay within a depth range which is appropriate to your experience level. And because in Turkey a licensed dive guide is required by law, he will take care that it is like that. An unintentional drop down is nearly impossible.
The other anchor spot is at the side of the island, opposing Catal Ada. Here the dive boat will anchor a shallow field of sea grass. With a lot of luck, here you even may find some seahorses. Usually you will start the dive clockwise around the island. Over the smoothly dropping sea grass field again you will reach the terrace area. Because the island is to big to surround it in one dive, later on you will dive back the same route, but in shallower water. Here as well it is very easy to adapt the depth to the experience level of the group.
Generally fish are quite rare around Pirasa Ada. Therefore the landscape underwater is very interesting and you will find a lot of small marine life.
