  • Santorini: Scuba Dive Experience

    1. Santorini: Scuba Dive Experience

    Start from the beautiful Bay of Ammoudi, where the boats are moored. A professional team will assist you with finding the right sized diving suit and all necessary equipment. Depending on the weather and level of experience of the group, visit a selection of the best sites around Caldera and Volcanic islands.  Take a boat ride to two different diving locations. In the underwater world of Santorini, dive in clear blue water amongst reefs, lava formations, wrecks, and cliffs. Experience wall diving and cave diving in sites around the islands. At the end of the activity, return back to the Amoudi bay to transfer back to the drop off location.

    I actually enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. You get such adequate time under the water and the guides are patient and helpful. Only minor thing I would say is that I payed to rent the underwater camera but they only had one memory card. We agreed for one of the guys to take it home and send it to us (he did thankfully), but would have been nice to have my own card. This was one of the highlights of my week long trip in Santorini. Such an amazing experience and I do recommend it!

  • Milos: Full-Day Island Discovery Cruise with Lunch

    2. Milos: Full-Day Island Discovery Cruise with Lunch

    After departing at 9:30AM, the first part of your trip will consist of sightseeing through the bay of Adamas. Sailing close to the east coast of the bay, you will pass the first Christian catacombs and the colorful villages of Skinopi, Klima, the capital of ancient Milos and where the statue of Venus de Milo was discovered, Areti and Fourkovouni. You will then reach the "Arkoudes", the impressive 20-foot bear-shaped rocks at the entrance of the bay to the east, before you continue sailing east along the north side of the island. Your next stop is Glaronisia; Greek for seagull islands. This uninhabited island is an extremely rare geological phenomenon, consisting completely of hexagonal shaped lava rocks. Weather permitting, this will also be your first swim stop. Next, you will sail towards the island of Polyaigos, the largest uninhabited Greek island which is home to some of the most i...

    This was truly such a highlight of our trip to Milos. 10/10 - recommend immensely. Each of the 10 passengers were asked to do a self-test for covid the day before and go in-person to attest to a negative result. It was clear that they took everyone’s safety very seriously. The actual trip was amazing too. We went to a bunch of beautiful spots, and had access to goggles, snorkels, and paddle boards. We were served a truly delicious home-cooked lunch with a variety of options (octopus pasta, fresh cheese, fresh fish, chicken salad, Greek salad, potato salad, tzatziki, etc — all restaurant quality, one of the best meals we have had on this trip!), snacks, a Greek yogurt parfait, Greek beer and other specialty drinks, and fresh fruit. The captain and the first mate/chef were both so kind and friendly. I couldn’t recommend this high enough. A fellow passenger shared that he had done a number of catamarans over his trips and this was certainly the best.

    Lots of fish, many more than elsewhere in the Med that I have dived. Reasonable visibility, Am mainly a 'tourist diver', rather than a dedicated 'every week' PADI diver. Staff were excellent, friendly and helpful - and perfect for what I needed. Outstanding bay and scenery under the staggeringly beautiful Oia cliffs. Will do it again, next time am in Santorini.

  • Mykonos: 2-Hour Scuba Diving Mini Course for Beginners

    6. Mykonos: 2-Hour Scuba Diving Mini Course for Beginners

    If you’ve always wondered what it would be like to scuba dive, this activity is the opportunity to give it a try! During a 2-hour mini-course you’ll experience the thrill and freedom of underwater life. With underwater photographs included free of charge the experience will be unforgetable. There’s no previous diving experience necessary to take part in this PADI Discover Scuba Diving activity. You’ll be under the guidance of a professional PADI instructor, and learn basic safety concepts before putting on your diving equipment and swimming around underwater in a closely supervised environment. You must be at least 10 years old to participate, and complete the Discover Scuba Statement, which includes a medical questionnaire. After their first Discover Scuba program, many new divers decide to repeat the experience!

    THIS WAS AN AMAXING EXPEIENCE! I HAVE GONE SCUBA DIVING BEFORE AND THIS WAS A FUN FIRST TIME ADVENTURE IN SHALLOW WATER. I WILL DEFINATELY RECCOMEND THIS PLACE TO OTHERS, THE GUIDES WERE VERY FRIENDLY (AND PATIENT). IT TOOK ME A COUPLE OF TRIES TO GET COMFORTABLE BEFORE I COULD COMPLETELY SUBMERGE. THE ONLY REASON I AM NOT GIVING 5 STARTS FOR THE EXPEIENCE IS DUE TO HAVING TO WAIT FOR ANOTHE GROUP TO BE DONE WITH THEIR DEEP SEA DIVE BEFORE WE COULD BE TAKEN BACK AND THAT TOOK AN HOUR. SO WE WERE THERE FOR 3 HOURS AND I WOULD HAVE LOVED A CHANCE TO GO BACK IN THE WATER AGAIN DURING THAT TIME. MAYBE THIS EXPERENCE CAN BE EXTENDED TO A 3-HOUR TOUR, I KNOW I WOULD PAY THAT MONEY IF IT MEANT MORE TIME EXPLORING THE BEAUTIFUL SHALLOW REEFS OF MYKONOS!

Very nice and helpful crew! There are pills on board in case someone gets sick from the waves.

The session was great! I’d definitely do this again!
