We came on holiday to relax and swim and sunbath. We did not come on this holiday to learn to dive! But we did and we are so glad we did and that Blue Dolphin got us hooked and Pierre looked after us so very well. As new divers, we can't comment on wider issues as we have nothing to... More

We returned to Elounda this year, and made a couple of shore dives. Once again excellent, friendly informed staff, and stress free dives. I got the impression that the marine life had declined over the past year though, but I guess this is the case throughout the Eastern Mediterranean. My partner was particularly appreciative of the support given by our... More

I visited Elounda for two weeks with my family end June/start July and was initially referred to the Blue Dolphin Dive Centre by my hotel. I fit in eight dives, six boat dives and two shore dives, including 3 two-dive mornings. Dive centre picked me up each dive day at 8.30am and, even with two dives in the morning, was... More

Dive-center is a pleasant place in territory of hotel with set of various dive-sites. The dive-center has a dive-boat that allows to dive far enough from hotel. Diving conditions were magnificent: it is visibility to 25 meters, various kinds of fishes and different artefacts on a sea-bottom. Diving with Blue Dolphin command you can see antique amphora’s and gun shells... More

Had two dives as a recently qualified open water diver. The staff were excellent with a quick safety refresher and then on to the dives. Advice was gracefully given and the staff were extremely encouraging. Contact and arrangements were excellent with great flexibility about times of dives. Couldn't have enjoyed myself more. Swimming with octopus, barracuda, cuttlefish and cornetfish.

I thoroughly enjoyed the scenic and beautiful dives and achieved all my skills with Dyana being the perfect teacher of a nervous student. . The whole team were welcoming and supportive.

Doing the dive was one of the highlights of my holiday. Pierre my instructor was very patient as I was a little bit nervous to begin with, but soon got past that and was totally relaxed and enjoyed every minute. All the staff were friendly and patient and made sure that you understood everything and were happy with the procedures.

We had a couple of dives here in July 2013 and were very impressed by the variety of marine life, from shore dives, in comparison with previous dives in this area of the Mediterranean. We saw Amberjacks, gilthead bream, a variety of other bream species, scorpion fish, dusky groupers, and the usual suspects ( wrasse etc.). The staff were very... More
