Pleasant, friendly crew. Boat nicely uncrowded in October. Very little to see in my two days' diving at the sites we visited - in fact I saw a lot more snorkelling around Fethiye - but diving with Besim in particular was a pleasure, as he did his best to maximise everyone's dives. In contrast, didn't really appreciate paying £5 extra... More

I chose this company as they are British owned and run. All the instructors and Dive Masters spoke great english (except Alan who spoke Yorkshire!!). The boat was clean and tidy a well equipped. I would definitely recommend this boat for experienced divers as it wasn't over-run with try divers and newbies......always a bonus. There were loads of turtles feeding... More

I have been diving with this dive centre for over two years now. I have just completed my PADI rescue diver course (we got there in the end guys). All dive kit up to spec as per usual. Instructors very knowledgeable on each course subject matter. I have dived a bit across the globe and this is the dive centre... More

This is the third trip of this kind I have done and this is certainly the best. I have got my first padi certificate and will aim to get the next level now. I saw so much, I swam with turtles and lovely fish and the instructors were excellent. Definately worth trying and good value too.

Just completed my advanced open water course with EDC, one of the best things I have ever done! Alan and his experienced team really are the professionals when it comes to diving, I learnt so much on my 2 days/5 dives I would highly recommend anyone learn with these guys!

Spent a day with the European Diving Centre during my stay in Turkey - I'm an experienced diver so wanted something special from my dives and wasn't disappointed. Great cave dive and a special dive with lots and lots of Turtles. Don't dive in Turkey if you want to see lots of soft corals and lots of fish as there... More

Just completed my PADI Open Water course at EDC and cannot recommend them highly enough. Excellent briefings (so that even an old man like myself was able to understand) and attention to detail. Even managed to watch two turtles only 2 metres away nibbling on the grass (you do not see that in an English quarry very often) and another... More
