About Side Azura | PADI dive center

Side Azura | PADI dive center is founded in 2010 and is located in Side Sorgun, Turkey. Sinan has had a long career in the diving world, and had for many years the deep desire to start a dive center of his own. Jazz came from the Netherlands and worked in the world of an ICT helpdesk at an international law firm till 2009. She met Sinan during holidays and discovered through him the wonderful world of diving. After her first experience, she rapidly started to desire a diving career as well. It’s a classic romantic love story actually! Sinan and Jazz have since 2014 a son, named Sinan Ege, since March 2017 a daughter Nevin Ellie and now they continue their Scuba dream as a family.

The dive center's success is the way of working. No 'mass production', no big boat with 30 to 50 guests on it and they don't stay all day onto the sea. They only dive with small groups, generally with 2 to 4 guests, to keep it small and personal. Like this they can assure that you dive in a relaxed atmosphere at your own pace and without losing a whole day on the water waiting for others. Exactly that makes it a great holiday activity for the whole family. The dive center has been rewarded with the TripAdvisor 2016 and 2017 Certificate of Excellence, won the Project AWARE 2016 #MyDiveSite contest, became Diving Company of the Year at the European Luxury Travel Guide 2017 and 2018 Awards and have been featured in a few magazines and online articles.
