I had a great day’s diving today with Joby and Kenan, owners of AquaPro in Betiz. The marina area in Betiz is less busy and the ambience more laid back than Bodrum which I like. I arrived at 9.30am for ropes off at 10am which gave plenty of time to get my stuff organised and to settle in on the boat before leaving.

John the dive master and the rest of the crew were great, all spoke English well. The dive boat is spacious, has good clean facilities and lunch was good. I brought all my own equipment except cylinder so didn’t need to hire their kit, but from the look of the wetsuits, bcd’s and regulators all are looked after well and in good condition. Joby was quick to reply to my email enquiry which I sent a couple of days before the dive and was very helpful with all info needed in advance. This was a whole lot better than other dive operators I contacted, who either had closed for the season or didn’t reply.

The two dives were well organised with separate sessions for certified divers and for those doing try dive / discovery dives.

I am writing this 20 October 2021 and the dive season for Aquapro is almost over, they dive until the end of October. This is longer than other dive operators in the area.

Dive costs are very reasonable at 50€ for two dives. Payment is in cash, and they accept sterling, euros and turkish lire and will convert the exchange rate based on the current internet rate as shown on mobile app - very fair.

John also helped by calling a taxi for my trip back to Turgutreis where I am staying which I am grateful for. The ride takes about 20 minutes and in October 2021 cost 95 Turkish Lire.

This is a happy and professional dive operation which I will be diving with again later this week. I will also be arranging to dive again with aquapro when I return to Turkey in 2022.

Joby and Kenan run an excellent team at Aquapro, who all made me feel welcome from the very first dive of a four day package. The boat (plus RIB) and diving equipment are all modern and well maintained with a high staff to diver ratio ensuring both safety and that any questions can be readily answered. Before arriving in the resort, Joby was also very helpful in helping identify my package options and providing advice and help on transport, as I was not at a hotel in Bitez itself. Non-divers are catered for in the same was as divers and made to feel equally welcome on the large and comfortable dive boat, all without having to travel for hours to reach the dive sites. The diving itself was varied, covering both wildlife and wreck diving for all skill and experience levels. All this at prices that compare very favourably indeed with UK or EU dive centres.

Great comms with Joby beforehand even after covid delayed visit by a year.
Prompt pick up from Gumbet Hotel.
Clean, organised dive boat which looked like had to be arranged with military precision due to others on courses and try dives. No issues on first day with wife coming along as a non diver for the ride.
Four dives in total on this week holiday.
My dive guide was mainly Khan with Joby being the lead with admin and organisation with her hubby Kenan the chatty captain. Would recommend

Look no further for the most professional Padi team in Bodrum. My sister and i were fortunate have our first scuba experience in the safe and friendly hands of Joby, Kenon and the team. We completed the Padi open water certification and we were googling our next dive holiday even before we left Turkey. Aquapro are excellent and patient instructors who made us feel safe and helped us get to grips with the key concepts and skills. The team communicates well and it really helped to have have fluent English language instruction and materials for some of the more complex material. The equipment was in good condition and the team was very attentive throughout the week. We had a great week on the boat and hope to see them again!

I can't recommend AquaPro highly enough. Professional but warm and welcoming, relaxed but always completely in command, every single person on the boat did everything they could to make our dive experience one to remember. So much so that we decided to dive as often as we could on this holiday, just to enjoy the companionship on the boat and to take advantage of the excellent instructors. The marine life is plentiful and the wrecks interesting (check out the Dakota in particular). We had a stingray pointed out to us and had the good fortune to see a scorpion fish, all thanks to our guide. If you like hiking, ask Joby to recommend a fantastic trail along the coast. Most of all, the crew really couldn't do enough for us, and left us delighted that we chose to centre our holiday around AquaPro.

We did the 2-day intro PADI course with Joby and the family-run Aquapro crew (who all spoke excellent English, some natively). Phenomenal experience — from safety procedures to the quality of the dive equipment. The dive sites were amazing too. Joby was very clear, professional, quick to respond to messages, and calmed any fears we had (especially important for first time divers!). We would definitely dive with Aquapro again.

This was amazing diving experience with Joby, Kenan and their team! I highly recommend this diving center! Everything was wonderful. It was easy to communicate with Joby before our trip, she answered all my questions immediately. Their equipment is in great condition. Our instructors were real professionals. The briefing was detailed, every situation that could happen during our dive was discussed. By the end of the briefing, our group could ask all remaining questions. We also were able to do snorkeling, they had all the equipment. By the end of the day, Joby sent us underwater photos and videos, which were included in the price. Overall, when I come back to Bodrum I’ll do my PADI Certificate with them. They do great job. We were happy!

Really good dive shop went on four dives with them had a great time. The Captain / dive shop owner is a super cool guy really friendly and talks to everyone on board. The instructors again really lovely all knew my name they really take the time to make you feel welcome. Also a good price in my opinion only 50 EUR for two dives which is cheaper than a lot of other places I've been. Even took my partner with me who is a first time diver and he had a great time, even wants to get his license now. The wreck dives were really cool worth doing.
