What people are saying about Muğla Province

amazing...really helpful and friendly instructors...gave me massive confidence to do the beginners scuba diving with really easy to follow instruction before diving. Amazing lunch...contacted before trip to confirm transfer times. Altogether couldn't have been any better organised

We booked the tour in early May 2022. Due to the low season, there were no more than three excursion boats in the bays. Orak Bay is a dream. Authentic Turkish lunch overlooking the crystal clear water. All in all an absolute recommendation.

Actual excursion amazing but no pick up or drop off which was included in price and arriving where boats were a bit of confusion with the ticket, but we were sorted. Actually would advise to book it direct there, a lot cheaper.

Amazing day with the family, was a little confusing to find the boat but but the locals were really helpful. Tasty lunch and super friendly staff

It was really good and worth the money. You can get it cheaper if you book it there do .
