    So i know it's not high on the Diving bucket list.... but i'm off to Turkey later this year on a family holiday and just wondering if anyone has any dives to recommend around Marmaris Turkey?

    Any paritcular "must do" dives or at least highly recommended?

    Any particular Dive Operators recommended, ideally that support Sidemount Divers, but not essential?

    I dived with European Dive Center about 20 years ago. It was OK, but typical Med PADI follow the leader. Only did it as we were on a ghullet holiday and had a day in port. It was better than going shopping. No idea if they are still going, or what the staff is like.

    Had a week's gullet holiday out of Fethiye, Turkey about 7 years ago. Utterly brilliant -- one of the best holiday's we've ever had. That was before I dived, but the snorkelling/swimming/kayaking was superb.

    Without waking round all the harbour looking for the cheapest option, I was very happy with the choice I made.
