What great guys. I spoke with them via Facebook to plan some dives prior to getting there. It was my sons first time diving after passing their PADI in the uk. They were so accommodating and I felt confident trusted them looking after the boys. We did three dives in total including a night dive which was incredible. Great equipment and value for money. Wouldn’t hesitate to come straight back next visit. Thanks for looking after the boys, it was defiantly the highlight of their holidays. Alex the guide knew the area so well and pointed out so many things I would have prob missed. Wish we were staying longer

Who likes to see the underwaterworld of Crete at its very best should go here. Many different and beautifull underwater sites. No mass tourism here but small groups. Owner Angelo is very entertaining, points out many animals under water and is very concerned for the underwater life.
Excellent facilities and safe diving. We saw sea horses!

My girlfriend and I did this trip whilst staying in Panormo. The company picked us up and dropped us off (€5 each) from our hotel and we went straight to Bali to do the diving. We did the Discover Scuba Diving. This meant that we watched the initial video and did a briefing with our dive instructor. We then got suited and booted and then went to the boat. A quick 5 min trip to a sheltered bit of water and we got out of the boat. We underwent some basic skills and some requirements and then had around 60 mins underwater! We saw things from fish to anchors to eels!

The staff were so friendly and so professional and even if you were unsure of something they helped! When the dive had finished we had a small debrief where we went over the fish and coral we saw! they will video the dive for you and create a dvd if you wish but we had my GoPro so used that!

We were totally satisfied with this diving center - the best trip we had during our holiday in Crete. Team was very friendly, funny and professional - even if scuba diving can be potentionaly dangerous sport, we felt maximum safety with our instructor. We tried discover scuba diving programe. At the beginning we saw short video, than we had briefing with our instructor and than we finally went to dive. It was magnificent. I am speechless and cannot describe it properly - you have to experience it. The place we went diving was wonderful. We saw various types of fish (which we were also feeding), moray eels, starfish... Also the environment itself was interesting. We had to "underdive" short rocky structures. Every moment of the 65minutes we were under water was pure happiness.
After dive we had short debriefing and we were shown pictures of wildlife we saw with some commentary and interestign facts.
I can describe what we saw and what we did but I cant describe the feeling. I highly recommend and if you hasitate, don´t - GO FOR IT!

My son had his first diving experience here and he was thrilled!!! The team is really fantastic and the instructors really patient and enthusiastic! He actually was so happy that he decided to take his first diploma the Open Water Junior by PADI, there! Alex and Angelos ,the instructors, speak both English and French and take you to great dive sites. They have also created ideal conditions for sea life to be protected which shows their respect for what they do! Excellent service, really organised and no time limit.... You stay under the water as long as you wish, since diving for them is every time a new experience!!!! They also organise night dives!!! Don't miss it if you come to Rethymno Crete!!! Totally recommend it!!!!!
