“Belated Thanks for an excellent summer of diving!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for an excellent summer of diving with a great bunch of people in the very relaxed environment of active blue dive centre Kusadasi. I know it's late but hey I'm a busy guy! Raki to drink!

Seriously, I had a fantastic time. Emin Abi ( Kel Adam) was an outstanding guide during my whole time on the boat. I completed advanced open water diving course along with 4 specialities ; Night Diving, Cavern Diving, Navigation, and Equipment Techniques. The courses were carried out in a very professional manner. We had proper safety briefings before each dive and used the buddy system appropriately.

I was lucky enough to see grouper, sea turtles and octopus during my dives as well as experiencing the hot springs and carry out some dives to 23M.

All in all, I found the staff Tugce, Tagmac, Önder , Osman, Emin Abi (aaabbbbiiiii) to be good fun, friendly, professional and detailed in their approach to Scuba Diving. I'm certainly looking forward to my Liveaboard in Thailand in December.

Tagmac has some excellent equipment for sale at good prices and I bought the whole kit in his shop - wetsuit, fins, boots, BC, regulator and dive computer.

Cheers Guys and Girl for an excellent Summer.

“Good half day trip for cruise visitors.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I visited Kusadasi last year via cruise ship, and was able to organize a dive trip with Active Blue.

The pick up was punctual at the cruise terminal, and they took me to the resort.

After equipment setup we took the boat to the dive sites, which were very interesting for me, hot springs, amphoras, caverns and my first ever baby octopus. Equipment was in good condition, and the group was very small, only 2 divers, 1 instructor and 1 DCS.

The team was very professional, friendly, english speaking, detailed briefing.

I arrived back to the terminal around 1 pm, so had time for a walk in town and lunch.

Since then I met people who got certified at Active Blue, and they told me they had a good experience as well.

Thanks guys!

“Great adventure and friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

During my holidays in Kusadasi I graduated the SSI Open Water Diver Course.
I was picked up and dropped back to my hotel (which is near Ladies Beach) with no problem.
It was my first under water experience and the professionalism of the active blue team made me feel very secure. Diving in the open water is great. Some unknown people (at the beginning) to become in such a short time your friends, learning to dive from them and in the end diving together in open water is awesome.
For the ones who want to take the course and obtain the card bring your own photos (passport format), if you care how you’ll look like on your diving license J
I definitely recommend Active Blue and diving.
