Uğur introduced my son to diving and he loved it! From a total newbie to a boy who can dive almost independently! Was very patient and gentle ;)
All family loved him and his dive center!! Highly recommended!

This was not just diving, it was a wonderful life experience. From the moment I arrived at the boat I was made to feel as if I was among friends. The crew and diving team ensured that every aspect of my experience on board, and in the water, would be safe and enjoyable.
My diver qualifications, Padi Open Water, were confirmed, equipment suitable to my physical dimensions were selected from their huge inventory, medical and health conditions were examined, and the dive master and I checked and double checked the B.C., tank, and regulators. Because it was early in the season, I was fitted with a wetsuit which made the dive even more enjoyable than I had anticipated.
Then I was asked for my passport! Because we were going through international water between Turkey and Greece, documentation was required.
I had left my passport and visa at our rental villa and walked down to the marina. No problem, one of the crew drove me up to the villa on a motorcycle. A great extra treat from my point of view.
Once at the dive site everything was performed in a very professional manner. The Padi certified diver master confirmed with me the details of our dive and we agreed upon the sign language we would use underwater.
After the dive, there was a warm freshwater shower available at each side of the diving platform, and the boat crew greeted each of the dive groups with hot tea and a welcome freshly prepared lunch. Very civilized!
Between lunch and the next dive we rested in the warm sun and enjoyed conversations in a variety of languages.
This dive company is great.

Me and my boy friend were there in August 2016, and it was very very very good experience for ys! Ugur is a really good trainer, and also a good photographer. We feel lucky to meet him! Thank you for everything!

Honestly we were very lucky to meet Ugur who is the BEST & MOST friendly Diving instructor I've ever seen! Ege Barakuda offers special diving tours for all kind of levels individually as well as PADI certification trainings. We did 3 divings and enjoyed very much We have been taken with a small boat and sailing through diving area with Ugur who makes us feeling like very old friends which helped us a lot relaxing while diving... If you are also looking for something special and comfort (instead of diving with dozens of people) EgeBarakuda is the right place for you. Looking forward to dive again!

This is the second time that we are visiting Kas. We were roaming in Kas streets in search of a diving center. We had no great expectations. Just a bot to jump in get dive ready and see the famous airplane wreck. We then found ourselves walking in Ege Barakuda Kas and sitting in front of Ugur. An ex army guy (as I am) but with a full smile (which I am I am as well). It took only minutes for us to decide... Next day we found ourselves on board Ugur's zodiac steaming to the first diving point. Ugur started from the scratch. We thought we knew everything... However, Ugur did show us we knew few but we could learn so fast :) Next day we found ourselves diving in the ship wreck against the strongest deep current I have ever seen. It was just fun.. Simply fun.. We did not only have a great training but also tons of lovely photos thanks to Ugur and his cam. This is the third day and we are still diving. Ugur and his lovely dog, Krom have become not only great friends to us but also an addiction. See you next year Ugur! Btw I have become a certified rescue diver thanks to Ugur and can hardly wait for becoming a dive master :)
