“Aegean (not Agean) Pro - two good days diving off Bodrum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2011

Aegean (not Agean) Pro's boat is moored near Halikarnos nightclub near central Bodrum so it is very easy to go and talk to the crew after 5 pm, get to know them and discuss diving arrangements. Most of my contact was with Yener, whom I found to be professional and knowledgeable, and not at all pushy. He was careful to check my qualifications and experience. I did two days diving and as a newly qualified ocean diver and therefore not completely confident I found Yener and all of his crew very helpful and friendly and they helped you have a good day's diving. The boat was clean and tidy and well run. On board was a mix of divers and beginners which I found made for a nice atmosphere. It also meant a leisurely surface interval in some lovely locations which allowed for you to either relax or snorkel. My non diving partner found the experience to be very relaxing and enjoyable. Dive sites included a recent wreck which was fun and a scatter of ancient amphorae on the seabed. All in all a well organized and friendly outfit who accommodated all.

We emaıled Pro Dıve as I have dıved wıth thıs company ın other countrıes. We specıfıcally asked ıf we could dıve shıpwrecks ın the Bodrum area and ıf the dıves were penetrable. We ınformed the company we are from New Zealand and were not ınterested ın fısh dıves as the Med cannot possıbly compete wıth what we have at home. Pro Dvıe told us vıa return emaıl we would be dıvıng 2 shıpwrecks and a plane. We travelled to Bodrum from Selcuk and rented a hotel for 2 nıghts to do these dıves. As we got on the boat we were agaın assured we would be dıvıng wrecks. The actual experıence was 2 dıves ın shallow water wıth many other people lookıng at a few very small fısh. There was a 4 hour tıme perıod spent anchored ın a bay whıle begınner dıvers worked toward theır certıfıcates. ((we are seasoned dıvers and were our for a dıvıng day. not for a sunbathe) The free lunch turned out to be canned peas ın canned vegetable soup and rıce, barely palatable. When we told the crew we expected wreck dıves not a day sunbathıng the boat manager got very angry and actually startıng shoutıng at us. The entıre experıence left us both terrıbly jılted wıth both Pro Dıve and Bodrum. We spent a lot of money to do thıs and regret the experıence terrıbly. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!
