The operation is well run, the gear is new and the diving runs to time, allowing diving in the morning, and family time in the afternoon. 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

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
