Before our trip to Kalkan we had been told about the dive centre and how good they were! I decided to book my PADI Open Water course before my holiday and got a discount of 10% for doing so. We completed our PADI open water over 3 mornings. Very safe, very efficient, very comfortable, very friendly and so much fun!... More

Took 4 children (aged 13-17) for their first scuba dive. They were given a briefing and each kid was accompanied by their own instructor for a dive along the shore to an underwater platform where they fed fish and had their photographs taken. They thoroughly enjoyed their experience.

My husband and son did a 30 minute try dive at the Kalkan Dive Centre at Kalamar Beach Club and had an amazing time. 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.
