    I contacted excursionside before I came to Turkey and got all info we need by whatsapp and booked diving tour online. Mustafa was very helpful with our questions. Joined the tour with my wife and my 15 years old daughter. We were inexperienced divers but Mehmet our divemaster looked after us very well. A special thanks to him. He is an excellent instructor, made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. He took us to sculpture museum, underwater cave and turtle reef. We saw 2 caretta caretta turtles, loads of fish even an octopus and fed it. Absolutely loved the experience. I highly recommend diving in Side. You will NOT regret it.
