This is a smal, friendly, professional dive school. The hire kit is in good condition and there are numerous dive sites that they can get to so that they can service all levels of experience. The staff all have good local knowledge of the sites and give clear briefings; they also allow unaccompanied shore diving for advanced divers which was... More

First dives away from the Cornish Waters. My 13 yo and myself. Both done about 15 dives and I was very impressed with the school. Good equipment and excellent local knowledge. Had 2 dives at about 23m. The water was crystal clear with vis of probably 30m and 2 great dive sites. Will definitely book with Altan again next time... More

We spent the day at Kalamar beach club with the main attraction being the opportunity to dive. It is possibly not the cheapest way to dive but I did not want to go on a whole day excursion on a boat. It was still good value for money as my three children and husband completed a trial dive including feeding... More

We booked in for a few dives with Kalkan Dive Centre as it was recommended by people, plus right next to our hotel. From start to finish it was a great experience. When we went to ask about diving the guys were really helpful, the price was great, and the next day when we turned up everything was brill. The... More

We have been to the Kalkan Dive Centre numerous times. My daughter and I have now completed 20 dives each there to include diving in Kalamar bay and going further out on the dive boat. We cannot fault anything at the Dive Centre and everyone has been consistently knowledgeable and keen to help out and advise when required. A few... More

We hired a four person self drive boat for a day on line from the UK prior to our Hol. The boat is available from dawn till dusk giving total freedom on where and when you want to go. We had a fantastic day exploring the local beaches, coves and islands. All for less than £80. Would recommend to everyone!

Kids did a try dive. Staff were very helpful and friendly and made the kids feel very relaxed. Held their tanks so all they had to worry about was breathing and enjoying the feeling of diving. Only dived to about 5 metres but sat on the bottom and fed the fish while having some photos, all downloadable free. Nothing very... More

Myself, the wife and 2 sons (aged 10 and 13) decided to go for a 'try dive' with KDC. The staff were very helpful and took their time to ensure that the boys (who were both somewhat apprehensive) were safe in the water and using the scuba gear properly. Thanks to their thorough approach we had no dramas at all... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. My instructor Mark was very patient and gave a calming presence when under the water so that you felt calm and safe. I would highly recommend it to anyone!! It is a whole other world down there!

While on holiday in Kalkan, I fancied getting under the sea so checked out The Kalakan Dive Centre while lounging at the Kalamar beach club... Decided to go for it and found a really friendly team and had a good mornings diving (2) with a nice cuppa and cake between dives. On top of that when I arrived at centre... More
