The dive centre is situated on the beach of the Ephesus Princess hotel. It is a bit of a hike down if you're not a guest of the hotel, but OK. Non-divers can relax for free on the sunbeds of the hotel near the pool or beach. If you do not like to waste too much time on the diving,... More

I am not the world's most qualified diver but have been 'holiday' diving for 20+ years in many locations. Whilst no-one would pretend that Kusadasi is a top 10 dive site, the topography and marine life is still worth a dive or three Yes. there is quite a downhill hike to the dive centre but if you cannot cope with...

I did only two dives with this operator in July 2014. The dive master Emre was excellent and very knowledgeable about the area. He really worked hard to make the trip excellent for everybody in the boat. I dove at several locations in Turkey and to my surprise, Kusadasi secured a place in my good-dives list. Do not expect to... More

The team here are amazing I've wanted to be able to dive for a while but there's always that apprehension. My girlfriend had spoken to a uk centre but she didn't like the idea of the cold water and at the same time heard some stories about international experiences. This lead on to the research and Active Blue came out... More

The guys here are very professional, made sure we were safe, comfortable, knowledgable and enjoyed our dives from the first try dive to finishing our open water certificates. My boyfriend and I had been excited to try diving for a while and had researched various schools. We planned our holiday in order to visit Active Blue at the Ephesus Princess... More

I did 5 dives there and it was wonderful. The staff is very friendly and communicative and, the most important: really professional. They know the surrounding waters like I know my land neighborhood! Without compass they can find not only the way (under water) but some interesting points too! And, what is also very important, they do it safe.The best... More

Wonderful guidance by the instructors at the dive. Before diving great clear explanations and instructions. Material is professionally and new. I saw beautiful fish and fed them well. Great experience! During the dive, nice contact with the instructor. The water was very clear, therefore, we have beautiful pictures. Next time I will come definetly back to this place.

We are never happy when a client feels they have not have a good experience diving with us, even when that is due to circumstances beyond our control, like the weather. However, in this instance the dive was tailored to the client’s exact requirements as discussed in advance by email. He specifically requested a shallow dive and pointed out his... More

Dived with Active Blue 4 years ago, so just went with them again this time. The dive sites are nice, granted not as much to see here as places like Egypt, but there's less traffic, you don't get multiple boats trying to dive the same sites or dozens of divers kicking up silt to affect the viz - so ultimately...
