We all have concerns about the things we believe to be hard. And these concerns may keep us from taking the necessary training. But "scuba diving" is a little different.
You have the opportunity to try scuba diving "in confined water with an instructor" under international safety standards, so you can decide if this activity is right for you.
Try Dive or the correct name in PADI system "Discover Scuba Diving" is designed for these purposes and been conducted for many years. Turkish Undewater Sports Federation names it "Introductory Dive".
This dive doesn't require hours of classroom trainings. But you need to complete a thorough hour-long knowledge development training on the boat which introduces you to basic concepts such as pressure-volume changes, equalization techniques, breathing techniques, hand signals and dive equipment. You will also need to complete the paperwork that makes sure you don't have any medical conditions that may prevent you from scuba diving. After the briefing and the paperwork, you will be prepared to get into the water by your instructor. Your equipment will be checked and you will be ready to get wet.
Our most experienced instructors will be with you from the beginning and they will take you to a safe, calm, shallow site to begin your underwater adventure. First, you will mostly be "excited" about the dive, but after feeling the trust to your instructor, your feelings will evolve to "happiness and confidence". We make sure that you will take your first breaths underwater in a shallow and safe site so you can come up to the surface anytime you want and you will have a one on one session with your instructor.
Your pictures and videos will be taken during your experience and after your dive you will have them to share with your loved ones. We will also give you a certificate of participation to the Discover Scuba Diving experience, you can also share it with a well deserved pride.
All you need to do to participate in this experience is to join one of our weekend trips which are conducted every month or two weeks and pay for the trip expenses. You will visit a nice vacation site and dive on Saturday and Sunday, and you will come back to Ankara as refreshed. Our trip sites are Kaş, Kalkan, Bodrum, Fethiye, Kemer, Demre, Adrasan, Alanya, Datça, Marmaris, Çeşme, Çanakkale and Ayvalık which are all great dive sites of Turkey. You can take a look at our trip calendar and book your trip for the weekend you are available. Trips include land travels, accomodation, boat and equipment rental fees, instruction and guide fees, breakfast and lunch for two days and all trips are under Travel Agency assurance.
And the best news is if you decide to attend to Open Water Diver training in the future, you will receive credit from your Discover Scuba Diving experience. This means you will be one step ahead in your future trainings.
