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

I recently enjoyed a 'try dive' with Kalkan Dive Centre and I wanted to share my positive experiences. As a novice to diving, I was relieved to see such high standards of safety and consideration of my needs. We sat down before the dive to discuss safety and address any questions I might have, which reassured me on any nerves... More

As experienced divers, we were quite shocked at the lack of professionalism at this dive centre, although the people were friendly enough. The quality of our specific instructor/guide was a particular worry, highlighted when one of our group had a problem equalising, so couldn't complete his initial descent - it was another 15 minutes before our guide noticed he was...

My son and I booked the Open Water Course from the UK, Altan replied to all queries promptly and made us feel welcome. I expected some classroom stuff straight away but no, we were straight in to the sea to be shown how to dive. Altan was a patient but thorough teacher, we couldn't dive for 2 days due to... More

Booked a one-day dive with Kalkan Dive Centre to finish off a week's diving holiday. We dived with Natura Blue in Kas earlier in the week but as this centre was on the doorstep for us in Kalkan, we thought we'd give it a go. Booking the day seemed to be an inconvenience to the member of staff on duty... More

Having never dived before (or since) it is a little hard to compare Kalkan Dive Centre to anything else however I am pretty sure there won't be many better out there. We took our PADI Open Water Course while on a two week holiday there this year. We were very lucky to have Mark Taylor as our instructor. Mark's patience... More
