Everybody had a personal teacher/instructor, who very specifically and personally accompanied us. Especially my wife was very afraid of it in the beginning, and Kostas, her instructor was very subtle and encouraging, so that it... More

We had booked four dives here over two days, and after two dives (one day) we cancelled the other two. If it hadn't been for Frenchman Olivier ( instructor) we would never had dived the first two. The whole experience was one of slow unpleasant chaos. Unpleasant treatment from the Russian & Greek staff. We were paying alot of money... More

We made our first dive ( 2 parents & 14 yr ) and we liked it a lot. After the dive we did some free snorkling. Nice place to spent a day. We want to come back again!
