After having had a disappointing couple of dives with another company, I found Side Azura. I emailed and got responses from Nathalie, who was great at explaining all my options for a dive and kept me informed throughout when it actually came to booking. The dive was just myself and Sinan (I am a qualified diver) who I can't praise enough. He was superb, making sure I was happy throughout and going through the pre-dive briefing and checks. Equipment was top rate and the dive itself more than I expected. Big thanks to Sinan and Nathalie, I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

I looked up this dive school before I went as I didn’t want to dive from my all inclusive resort. For context, I’m a former PADI OWSI and current BSAC instructor. I knew the diving in Side wouldn’t be out of this world, but having only dived in Malta and the UK recently, I was keen for some warm water! The underwater museum was a nice touch, I appreciate how this part of Turkey is set up to introduce people to diving through DSDs and the wreck was nice that we visited. More to the point - I want to talk about this particular dive shop and Sinan - who took me diving. I had my own gear with me, however, my regs failed as we reached the dive site (serviced the previous week in the UK) Sinan did everything to try and fix them but we couldn’t so we went back to the shop where I used the shop regs which were great. Then I had a little wobble on the surface and couldn’t descend. No idea what came over me, but Sinan was patient and didn’t pressure me at all. Eventually we had a great dive where we found some lovely Nudibranchs and on the second dive, an octopus. I would definitely recommend this dive shop if you find yourself in Side. Smaller operation than the big commercial boats, you’ll get a personalised touch and leave very happy! Thank you!

Amazing first solo dive after passing our PADI open water. Couldn’t have been in better hands with Sinan. He was calm and patient with me as I was slightly nervous, took things slowly and explained everything. Great dive site beautiful fish and museum. We had so much fun and was pleased to have chosen them for the start of our Scuba Diving adventures. Thank you for an awesome day 😎

We have experienced several diving trips with the Scuba - Team guys in August 2021 and were very satisfied :-). We always dived as a small group and were a maximum of 4-5 people, which was very pleasant. The dive spots "Museum", "Turtles" and "Wreck" were the most beautiful :-). Especially the private guided dives with Sinan were a true experience! He explains everything wonderfully and responds very well to the needs of each diver. He took away the fear of diving beginners, was very supportive, relaxed and a gentleman. We had a lot of fun! He speaks very good English, too :-). Thanks for a really great time!
