For those of you who are seeking adventures, this activity should definitely be on your list!
At around 9:30 am, you will be picked up from your hotel, and led to a wide boat. There, you will have the opportunity to meet new people (like I did as I was travelling alone), to take a sunbath, and to dive twice at 2 different locations.
The first dive is mainly dedicated to learn diving hand signals, to make sure you are breathing correctly, and to break your fear. It will last for around 15 minutes, at a maximum of 6 meters of depth. Professional divers will be surrounding you all the time, therefore no need to panic, even if it is your first time – it was my first time as well. In case you face any problem, they will be there for you. So do not worry, the divers are extremely professional and friendly! In addition, a professional diver will record a video of you feeding the fish and striking cute poses under water. You can buy these photos + video for 100 Turkish Lira (around 20$).
The second dive is mainly to have fun. You will dive for around 15 to 20 minutes at up to 10 meters in depth, dance underwater with your professional diver and have a great time indeed!
It should be noted that lunch is one ham and cheese sandwich. So for many people it was not enough. I personally advise you to bring some light snacks with you.
Have fun!!

I was unsure when booking this which option i should go for, one or two dives as we are technically beginners (we have only done one dive before). So I read the Q&A and someone stated that as long as you were an OK swimmer it was fine. So we did two.

You go to the first area and do a dive to around 3 meters. You are given a wetsuit, flippers, mask and tank. I would advise to bring your own snorkel for time outside of diving rather than borrow what they had onboard. You get a detailed explanation of how to use the equipment and hand signals also what will happen whilst you are down in the water. I give them 10/10 for that as they even explain things the guides use on you but you don't really need to use (such as the air valve for the tank).

If you want photos then these are extra at 200TL. You cannot pay card, so will have to be cash. You get this on a CD too. I would probably recommend they get some cables to transfer these to peoples phones as I don't have a laptop with a CD drive, i had to go to my parents to get them. You only get the photos taken on the first dive and they are pretty quick and posed. I would have liked some photos of me swimming about more but you are mostly holding on to the guide all the time. It is 1 guide to 2 people (or family). Having the pictures, i probably wouldn't really bother - they aren't that great (good quality on some as they are taken with a gopro). But if you want as a memory then good to have.

The second dive site is around 7 meters down and you get to see some wildlife. Everyone got to see an octopus and touch it but as I was in the last group I didn't see it. I did see a sea cucumber and touch it though.

You go in groups of 4 to 6, still 1 guide to 2 people. But you dive for around 25 minutes so it can take a while for your turn if you are in the last group.
During the time you are not diving, you can sunbath or go swimming/snorkelling in the sea freely. They will call you when its your turn to get geared up.

Food is fantastic, i read other reviews expecting it to be crap. "just a sandwich" - it is, but it is half a loaf of bread cut in half with salami, salad with mayo and ketchup to put on it. There is an option to buy drinks or pay extra to have chips too. They do make you aware of this before asking which is great (they didn't do this on our fishing trip we booked separately). Plenty of food really if you have a big breakfast.

The tour starts around 9.30am pickup and you get dropped off about 4.30pm. On the minibus there were no people other than the drivers and us wearing masks, and no hand gel available to use. The bus was full with 12 people. So no social distancing. No air con also - only windows open in 35c heat. Not ideal. So if you are vulnerable i probably would avoid the minibus and get a taxi.

For the sanitation of kit, i personally didn't see this happen - but i wasn't eyeing it up all the time. The masks were in a barrel of sea water - so maybe that kills covid?
I don't know about the breathing tubes for the gas - i would like to think this was cleaned, but i never saw it happen - again, i wasn't watching it all the time.

The tables were cleaned after we had food with disinfectant. So that was one good thing. When it was time for food, social distancing went out of the window.

I would like to see more operators make people wear masks in enclosed spaces and gel available. Towards the end of the trip i noticed some on the boat but this wasn't pointed out. About an hour before we headed back the fresh water ran out too so couldn't wash our hands.

We also had the owners children onboard diving into the sea off the back of the boat throughout - which is fine. Except when i was coming up from my second dive, one of the children dived in and knocked my breathing tube out of my mouth with their feet. It could have been a lot worse if they knocked my mask as well. So i would ask that they maybe only dive away from the group in the water or from the front of the boat instead. I ended up choking a bit as i breathed in some water. None of the staff seemed bothered by this which was the annoying part. But i didn't die - so winning.

I would also say that if you want to do this trip, book it in Turkey. We paid online before going and paid significantly more money than booking at one of the agents in Turkey. Roughly about £10 more.

I would recommend to do this trip as it was one of the best.
