From the moment we contacted the centre from the UK, we knew we were in good hands. Our instructor for our PADI Open Water Diver Certification, Mark Taylor, was just brilliant: patient, excellent teaching skills, extensive knowledge, and a thoroughly lovely man. And the prices are far lower than anywhere in the UK. I know where we preferred to learn,... More

All the instructors and staff were extremely helpful and incredibly professional. I would recommend anyone who is keen to get into the water this dive company who were extremely... More

Mark the instructor was geat in building my daughter's confidence in... More

This is an excellent dive centre with a mix of Turkish and English staff who were more than helpful. We had all our own equipment so didn't need to hire but the hire equipment looked of a good standard. We have dived in many places and to be perfectly honest Kalkan can not stand up to the other places we... More

My wife and I did a PADO open water - whilst the two boys did the advanced course. We all had great experiences. Altan runs the centre - and is calm, charming and professional. the centre is very well staffed so there are always helpers on hand to assist the less experienced folk such as myself. it is a PADI...

The team at Kalkan Dive Centre are friendly, well spoken and clearly passionate about diving. We were recommended by a friend as many young English people choose to work there in order to get experience in scuba diving. Whilst the marine life in Kalkan is not as good as other places, it has an exciting array of caves, arches and... More

My friend and I both did a refresher course and couple of days later two boat dives. On the refresher dive the instructors went through the equipment, and in the water mask clearing and hovering. The boat dives were also very good, we set up the equipment before we got on the boat (something i always like as i'm prone... More

I have always been interested in trying Diving and decided to give it a go at the Kalkan Dive centre. Myself and my girlfriend (who had dived once before) booked onto the Discover Diving course. It was outstanding and I could not fault it in any way. The trainers were extremely knowledgeable and left us feeling safe and confident. It... More

We are just back from our Turkey trip. I had promised my two girls - 17 and 19 - and amazing experience - and had booked Discover scuba dives with Kalkan Dive centre. Both of them had really a very bad experience. They never want to dive again. And this I attribute to bad instructors at Kalkan Dive centre. For... More
