Exceptional experience! Highly recommended! Very professional guide. The coolest thing was we saw an octopus which changed a brilliant raspberry color right below us. So fascinating. We also saw cuddle fish, star fish, sponges, sea anemones, varied colored fish, pottery to name some. I wouldn't have seen stuff without him because he knew how to spot stuff. His equipment is in excellent condition. You get a wet suit cause it can get chilly being in the water so long. It is an easy ride from central Athens on the Ktel bus which I took which was an experience in and of itself. The water was crystal clear and even in mid October the weather was perfect (even hot out of the water). The coast is pristine clean and peacefully quiet and quaint. So different from Athens which is teaming with crowds of tourists. Just such a terrific trip and I also was traveling solo. Dmitris even picked me up from the bus stop and drove me back to the bus stop.
Great uncomplicated trip! Dimitris is the perfect guide...always keen to answer questions and clearly knows the cove inside out. He showed us several animals as we snorkelled and even got a baby octopus to shoot it’s ink. A perfect trip for children with plenty of time to relax and enjoy the beautiful waters. A total of 6 were on the trip including our family of 4! Highly recommend for an easy fun day!
This excursion was very relaxing and far from the touristy scene of Athens. Perfect for small groups or family, we enjoyed it very much. Dimitri who owns the tour is very passionate and has a ton of experience with multiple types of dives. Very accommodating with beverages and snacks on his boat. Taxis are available boat ways, to and from Athens, under 50 euros.
Dimitris was always friendly and gave us many Information how to use the equipment. the trip was on a cute motorboat with a small group, so he answered all of the questions. He told us many stories about the greek history and picked up some water animals. it was a very good Tour with a top guide!
Myself and my partner had such a wonderful experience scuba diving with Dimitri. Dimitri was so professional throughout. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone in the area. Thanks for such a wonderful experience!
