I went to the dive school with my father back in June and have to say it was an absolute pleasure to dive with them. The waters were clear and I felt safe and secure the whole time. It was also a quiet dive so not too overwhelming. My sister also did her Open Water here and again loved it... More

Did the padi open water course and a boat dive and had a great time. Everyone was professional and helpful which made the whole thing a great experience. Many thanks to all the staff.

My wife and I had for a very long time wanted to do PADI scuba course. We had been to Kalkan before and noticed the dive centre then and it appealed much more than a cold day in the murky Thames. After emailing them with several enquiries (and very prompt and helpful responses) we plucked up courage to book up... More

My son was very keen to dive whilst on holiday. We arranged for him to dive with this group. They were very professional, with well maintained equipment and all the staff were friendly.

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 recently visited Kalkan and decided to book the open water dive course with Kalkan Diving - what a great experience. 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
