    THAT would have been super fun too!
    But my travel buddy is not an avid diver. She snorkeled at some of our stops but that was it.
    We actually got quite lucky for this trip. The gulet actually berths 8 guests. Because of covid, it was cut down to 4. Then the other 2 pax cancelled so my friend and I had the entire boat to ourselves, private cabins and the 3 crew members. !!! AIEEEE

    Few are accessible to sport divers but it is a bit complicated to organize if you are coming from abroad. Most of the diving is organized by the dive centers/clubs from Istanbul or other large cities. They will charter a dive boat for the whole weekend so in order to hook up with them, you need to be in their mailing list. There used to be very few charter boats permanently present at the location, mostly weekends only and in summer, as there is not much of local dive tourism.
    I did dive HMS Majestic, Lundy, several ANZAC landing barges, water desalination boat and many other non war related wrecks. Most interesting ones such as Triumph, Bouvet, Irresistible are off limits to sports diving. I would be interested to dive those some day as Majestic has been already through couple of rounds of salvaging so it is quite scattered. The ones in deep water are suppose to be untouched. Full list:
    ÇANAKKALE SAVAŞLARI GELİBOLU TARİHİ ALAN BAŞKANLIĞI

    That sounds amazing, I actually had the blue voyage trip in my todo list, reading your report has motivated me, I will see whether I can manage it this summer.
