Last year (2014), the guys from our dive center in Turkey told us that there is a (new) legal depth limit of 30m (100ft) for all scuba divers (including CMAS 3* and PADI Dive Master) which is enforced by the coast guards. The only exceptions seem to be training dives.
Is it true that there is (was?) this kind of limit, or did they just pretend it to prevent us from diving deeper?
Note: I do not care about limits by diving organisations (PADI/CMAS/...) or insurances.
