The sea at Kalamar is warm and crystal clear with lots of sea life to discover Altin and the other instructors were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient and we thought it was a bargain - well...

My ten year old son and I did our first ever scuba dive with the Kalkan Dive Centre and loved every minute of it. Their Try Dive experience is perfect if you want a taste of what scuba's all about and whether it's right for you. One instructor looks after each diver and everything is explained very clearly. The experience... More

We had a wonderful time here. One member of our group was struggling a bit and a young employee, Alex, was fantastic at helping her eventually have a successful dive! My only minor criticism is there isn't enough explanation at the start, before you're in the water, about what you'll be doing (skills wise) other than the PADI video you... More

Having qualified for our PADI early this summer it was nice to be taken out I a small group for me and my teenage soon to do our first dives. Maybe not great diving if you have travelled to great dive sites all over the world but for novice divers the friendly staff and care taken is most appreciated

Booked our four teenagers to do their first PADI qualification, professional, mature team who spent over and above the planned time, making sure that the gang had plenty of practice. Great location for beginners in the bay and for more experienced divers the opportunity to go further afield.

Just completed a refresher course and the Peak Performance Buoyancy Speciality Diver course. Really enjoyed my time with the Kalkan Dive Centre. Everyone was really approachable, managing to achieve the perfect balance between being friendly but professional. Mark and Altan were both great, everything was really relaxed and always helps being with English/very good English speaking instructors after a year... More

Had a great day with Kalkan Divers with a two dive boat trip. A small but well organised dive centre with professional and friendly staff. We visited two dive sites, one of which as a wreck which made for an interesting and fun dive. We were back to the beach by 2pm and had lunch at the Kalamar beach club.

The team at the dive centre are helpful and experienced. I visited the centre with friends from my dive club so we were all experienced and dived regularly together. The equipment provided seemed to be well maintained and the centre used steel 12 litre tanks throughout. The dive boat leaves at 9.30 in the morning and the programme is to... More

I visited Kalkan Dive Centre in Sept 2014 during a holiday in Turkey. After speaking to the team about safety, diving procedure and prices, I was clear that this was a perfect place for me to take my PADI diving course. The onshore practice, safety briefings and tests were clearly explained and carried out with dedication. The dives from the... More

I first dived with Kalkan Dive Centre last September. I enjoyed my whole visit so much (three dives that time, in fact), that I decided to dive with them when I returned to Kalkan last week. This family-run business is not only friendly and approachable about any diving issues. Even having dived before, I still wanted to be sure of... More
