Scuba diving for beginners from Heraklion

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect

    You will start this activity around 10:00 after your pick up from your hotel or the nearest pickup point.

    You will be introduced to the basics by the instructors and the theoretical part is around 45 min, where the basic principles of scuba diving are explained along with the use of the equipment that you will use. A detailed step by step description of the diving tour will end the theoretical part of this activity.

    For children the scuba diving experience is a bit different since they will have their own instructor and they will stay in shallow waters no more than 2 meters depth. The underwater experience will not be more than 30 minutes.

    When ready and confident enough, your instructors will guide you in an open water dive from the beach which will last for 45 minutes. The depth will never pass the 10 meters since safety is the priority in this activity so during the whole time of the diving you will be accompanied and supervised by your instructor as you watch from close range starfish, cuttlefish, octopus, shrimps, groupers, and a lot of other marine species.
