We booked a Taster session for £25 each for myself and my hubby. I have never even snorkelled before last year and was very excited to try this out. It was a dive to feed the fishes and swim around the lovely bay at Kalamar. It was extremely professional managed. We felt safe and secure with our instructors and had... More

Katakana Dive Centre is attached to the Kalamar Beach Club. While the building is a little bit dated, the location is still very good and the service personnel. Drinks are served to the "beach", there is plenty of ice-cream for the kids. Its a pleasant alternative to the beach in downtown, where is now a lot of construction and noise.

We booked the course in the UK,received an unexpected 10% discount and received the highest tuition from both Altan and Murat . All the tuition was done in the sea so the best open water tuition was received right... More

This place is highly recommended. From beginners looking for fun with a snorkel to experienced divers keen to expand their PADI qualifications and extend their dive time, Altan and his team will accommodate. The safety level is solid, the location is ideal for divers and their non-diving partners (who can relax by the dock with a beer and snacks), and... More

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...
