My son and i booked our first SCUBA experience with SDC. We met Dimitri who was excellent. Went through all the theory very well and then expertly guided us through our first dive whilst pointing out the wild life. My son is 10 years old and absolutely loved it! Well done to all at Skiathos Dive Center - Thank you

As an absolute beginner the introductory course at SDC was ideal for me. After a perfectly-paced theory session, followed by equipment practice in the shallows, our small group of four were led out on a 6 metre dive in the beautiful waters around Koukounaries. Our instructor's (Dimitris) calm, reassuring approach and great attention to detail meant that any initial nerves... More

Would have no hesitation in recommending Skiathos Dive centre run by Panos. SDC are based at koukounaries beach, and Panos runs a very friendly and relaxed diving centre. Waters around the south coast were crystal clear and warm during my August dives, which were all from the RIB. Lots of eels, octopus, and nudi branch, and Panos has a real... More

We found the guys at SDC great to dive with. We only went out in small numbers despite it being he busiest weekend of the year. They were very patient and helpful, great if you are new to the sport. The seas around Skiathos are incredibly clear, we had visibility up to 30 m at times.

I had my first scuba diving class today and all I can say is - it was great experience. I was 45 min under water 6m max and had chance to enjoy beautiful sight! Whole class is 2.5 hours If you have chance, choose Dimitri as a instructor, this guy is great, will teach you right things for very short... More

This is based at Koukounaries beach in the south of the island. The owner, an instantly likable guy, picked me up from my hotel and immediately inspired confidence by the way he described his outfit with obvious pride. The kit that I hired from him was in good condition, and my fellow-divers were both friendly and competent, making for a... More

I went to Skiathos with my girlfriend, who doesn't dive, for a week long holiday in 2015. The year before I have done my advanced open water course with Panos and Dimitri. I only did one dive with them and it was great. Dimitri always find the small, interesting and beautiful sea creatures, which makes every dive interesting. There was... More

Panos and his team run a brilliant dive and snorkel business on the beautiful island of Skiathos, Greece. My 2 two sons wanted to do their PADI training and we felt very confident with the professionalism of the guys involved with the training and quality of equipment supplied. Best of all the course completely sea based which made it far... More

We decided to travel to Skiathos (an island we already knew well) so that our 10 year old son (Aidan) could complete his PADI Junior Open Water Course. We booked in advance with Skiathos Diving Centre and are so glad with our choice. The owner Panos was so helpful and the dive instructor Dimitrios (Jim) was the BEST! They guys... More
