Booked a days diving, sold as 2 boat dives, accepting that the dives would close to center. Briefing for first dive led us to believe the depth would be 15-18mtrs on a reef - actually 7mtrs. Did see some life but this is clearly a dive site in regular use. Post dive returned to center for lunch and rest.
It was discussed that we may do a dive to 'recently' discovered wreck of a plane close to harbour mouth as the second boat dive. Right up to the moment when we should have boarded the dive boat that was the plan, instead the dive guide, on his return to the center from taking in try-dives whereupon he changed his mind and our plan to a beach dive. To try and generate some 'excitement' he took a bag of bread to go fish feeding... Maximum depth of dive 4mtrs....
The beach dive involves wading or swimming past a pier with lots of holiday makers playing in the water.

Whilst having lunch we observed hat the dive guides were in such a hurry to get the try-divers through the dive that they were pulling the weaker people around and down by the cylinder pillar valves. I'm so concerned with what we saw and the girls in my group commented on that PADI international has been advised about the center standards.

This center is the first one I've been to where the experienced divers are charged more than the trainees.

I have been diving at this centre since 2007, passed my PADI open water in 2008, Everyone at this dive centre should be proud of what they have done to make this part of the coast so well preserved. The amount of aquatic life here is amazing and you can see all their conservation steps working. there is so much more to see now and once the wreck is in place it will be even more tepting to return time after time. Thank you Sinan and the team for a superb experience which i hope to continue to enjoy for years to come.

We have just returned to Okenos for the 2nd year having got the diving bug. We found the staff very professional and friendly we took the PADI open water course in which we were shown DVD's in a classroom environment and also 6 open water dives all of which were with a qualified instructor. We are returning again next year in which we hope to train to Master Scuba Diver level I recomend any one to give it a try either to complete a course or with try scuba excellent value for money.
