We passed exams for PADI Open Water at this diving center! The dive locations were very nice - tons of fish, statues in underwater museum. Sinan Senat, our diving instructor and the director of center gave us very precise information and instructions, checked our knowledge and physical condition, was polite and friendly, so our exams went well! Me and my husband have warm memories from Side Azura, and we definitely recommend this location as for PADI exams , as for leisure diving.

Dear Nadia and Vladimir,

Thank you very much for taking time and effort to share the scuba dive experience you had with us, with others here on TripAdvisor. The fact that you took time to write about us means a lot to us! We are always excited to stand at the beginning of someones scuba diving career and feel proud when someone decides to follow a course with us to become certified. Scuba diving is not something you just do, it's a way of living and it's great to see when our visitors add diving to their live.

We're happy that you gave us the opportunity to educate you and that you have warm memories with us. It's what we wish for all our visitors and we love that the scuba dive community grew with two new divers.

We hope you continue to spread the word and we’re looking forward to having you again as a guest at Side Azura | PADI dive center.

Best wishes,
Jazz and the team

Hi!

Thank you very much for taking time and effort to share the scuba dive experience you had with us, with others here on TripAdvisor. The fact that you took time to write about us means a lot to us!

It has been a conscious choice to keep the dive center small and personal. We love diving. It's a way of living and we want to share that with others in the way we love it. It's how diving always should be. Relaxed, and diving in a personal atmosphere at your own pace. That's exactly what we stand for :)

We hope you continue to spread the word and we’re looking forward to having you again as a guest at Side Azura | PADI dive center.

Best wishes,
Jazz and the team

Had an amazing visit to Side Azura Dive Centre. We chose the House reef dive, but the trainers thought that the weather was not good enough out there, so we went on the Side reef (upgraded dive for no extra fee), a 5-7 metre dive. Diving gear is included in the Scuba dive. We trained first with the kit on in a swimming pool before going out - 1 trainer with 2 people, so great service. They were always checking how we were with hand signals, and we got some great photos and saw some amazing sealife. Couldn't recommend more for a great day in Turkey.

It was a very nice dive. We enjoyed it a lot.
Hassan Sinan is a very competent dive master. He will show you the best of Side‘s Ocean. We will come back again. Thank you very much for this nice dive!

I am a 9 year old boy and this was my first time scuba diving. I was staying at the Side Voyage hotel where Azure Diving is based.
Denis was my instructor and was very supportive, encouraging and friendly. We did 3 pool dives and 2 amazing sea dives together.
Despite being quite scared Denis made me feel comfortable throughout.
All the fish were beautiful, we even saw an octopus and grouper and fed them!
All in all this was the best holiday so far and would definitely recommend coming here for diving trips.

Dear Noah,

Thank you very much for taking time and effort to share the scuba dive experience you had with us this summer, with others here on TripAdvisor. The fact that you took time to write about us in such a nice way means a lot to us! We love to read that you had a lot of fun and we're happy that you gave us the opportunity to give you an extraordinary holiday experience.

With scuba diving you can explore a world that others can’t see or only dream about. Unlike snorkeling, with diving you can really enter that other, almost magical world, which makes it a truly special thing to do. So feeling scared in the beginning is very normal! I'm happy to hear that Deniz was able to take away those fears. I made sure that he read your great review about him :)


We hope you continue to spread the word and we’re looking forward to having you again as a guest at Side Azura | PADI dive center. That time you'll be able to go a bit deeper if you want to.

Best wishes,
Jazz and the team
