This is one of the best companies I’ve been diving with. The owner Spiros is an ex-navy seal and very knowledgeable, and takes care to ensure all divers feel comfortable and have a good time, regardless of experience level. All the staff members who work there are also very skilled and knowledgeable, and everyone is friendly which improves the entire experience! Their equipment is well maintained, and it’s included in the cost of the dives. I was so impressed by the dove instructors that I decided to do my rescue diver certification there, and it was well worth it! The dive sites are unique (I’m used to the Caribbean, so prepare for fewer underwater creatures in Chania but a lot of neat caves and swim throughs!). They are also an efficient operation and run two tank dives in the morning and another two in the afternoon. I will absolutely come back to dive with Blue Adventures Diving, and highly recommend them to anyone).

My wife and myself took 4 dives with Blueadventures team and it was amazing throughout! From smooth communication via emails since the first contact, pickups, the dive center team, dive equipment, briefings to the dives themselves. We had Spiros as our dive guide and he was keen on making us feel safe and comfortable during our dives, also gave some useful tips, which helped us improve as novice divers.

We had rough weather (waves) the first day we took the dives, which reduced the access to some of the dive spots, but it was still fun doing some wall dives. Nonetheless, Spiros promised we will be happy after taking the cavern dives at a calm sea, which we did at a different day and it surely delivered. That being said, if you get onto 'bad sea day' don't be hesitant to give it another chance with better weather, it is definitely worth it!

Overall, a definite recommendation from my side and nothing bad to say, would definitely come back!

This is a long review but it’s worth reading because it will give you a detailed description. I highly recommend it due to its high safety standards and friendliness.

We booked Blue Adventures Diving through our travel agent TUI. We were picked up on time at the hotel and taken to the dive centre where we filled in all the necessary paperwork. We got kitted out and left out private clothes in lockers with locks. There were changing rooms and showers. The wetsuits and boots were fresh. The staff was friendly and put together our scuba gear which I found of good standard and quite new. Then we took our scuba gear down to the rib by the Venezian harbour.

Well on the boat we had three staff with us. Two guides and one boat crew. We dived with Spiros, the dive centre owner and he was all about safety, which felt very good since we didn’t dive for a year. First dive was great. We followed a wall towards a large tunnel that lead to a huge room with pieces of amphoras, lots of stalactites and stalagmites. The visibility was about 30 meters. We saw maybe 10 lion fish, a scorpion fish and beautiful rock formations with light sipping through the roof. Before surfacing we made three minute stop. After a 30 minute break we moved to another site just a few minutes away.

Spiros briefed the site and instructed us to stay in a line. He also said this was going to be one of my best dives ever. Well he didn’t lie. It was the most amazing cave diving. Windling tunnels and holes going up and down, left and right. So cool. The dive went so fast even though we spent a good 40 minutes. Thank you soo much for an excellent day. Thank you Spiros with crew 🙏🏻⭐️

We went diving for 3 days in this center. The dive center is located right by the harbor in Chania, very central and easy to reach on foot. If you’re staying a bit further away, they have a pickup service and will also return you to your hotel. The staff were amazing, very professional and always making sure we were safe and having an amazing time. They took care of our needs and personalized the dives for us. One of us was a bit inexperienced and got a bit uneasy during the cave dives, so our instructor took her by the hand the entire dive and made sure she was calm and feeling comfortable. We got to experience the most beautiful dives of our lives and we will all remember this trip for the rest of our lives. The equipment is very professional, the suits are cleaned after every trip with antibacterial soap. They check you equipment and then ask you to check it again so it is according to your standards. The communication is great, as I said the instructor personalizes the dives to your level and to make you the happiest possible. The staff is incredible and very friendly. The dive sites, which the owner of the center discovered himself are beautiful and unique. We will always remember diving with blue adventures and will definitely dive with them again. I highly recommend this center to all levels of divers for an unforgettable experience. Every cent spent here is more than worth it.

My daughter, her boyfriend and me booked a 3-days diving trip with Blue Adventures Diving and it was a fantastic experience. Spiros and his team are not only very warm-hearted people but also very professional divers. We dived into various breathtaking and unique caves, i‘ve never seen before in my life. Before our dives we got a detailed briefing and afterwards we received suggestions, how we can improve our diving skills. As a relatively new diver i was feeling quite uneasy in the beginning, but our instructor Spiros held my hand the entire dive and made me feel safe, which helped me enjoy it quite a lot more. Safety is the number one priority for the dive center. After diving with Spiros and his great team i can say, that had become better divers…thank you

My girlfriend and I had a great time diving with Spiros and his team.
I've mainly dived in South East Asia and didn't know what to expect but Spiros was very upfront with the poor marine life so while I was at first disappointed, it did not come as a surprise.
But I decided to go dive anyway and was pleasantly surprised! The cave dives, that Spiros himself has discovered, are absolutely breathtaking. Take a look at the picture I took to see for yourself.
My girlfriend also had a great time getting her OWD certification where she at all times felt in capable hands. Although she struggled a bit at first with getting used to breathing underwater they were very patient and professional with her.
For our first dive together as certified divers they also made sure she was comfortable by taking things slowly and going the easier underwater routes.
After every dive they also made a point to ask if we had any problems during the dive so they could improve on the situation.

Thank you for your very kind words. It is true about the marine life, and we have to be honest about it! The caves do make up for it though! It was great meeting both of you and we are happy your time with us was enjoyable.

Super great place, good communication booking, arranging pickup from hotel, instruction and checking peoples actual skill level before doing appropriate cave diving. The cathedral is beautiful with both salt and fresh water and the light coming in. Can definitely recommend using this dive center👌

With over 20 years of international diving experience, I can strongly recommend Blue Adventures Diving for your scuba needs.

I reached out to the team ahead of my trips indicating that I was eager to dive caves, not only the infamous Elephant cave. Gina was very responsive and answered all my questions without delay. I did in fact dive caves as promised: 8 dives in 3 days, 7 of which included caves. The Seal cave was the most exciting. I had an incredible time and was thrilled that they held their word. I also really appreciated that they organised the patrons according to skill level. This not only created smaller groups but made the whole experience more enjoyable.

The accommodation (Cocoon hostel) and the restaurants they recommended were also superb.

The scuba equipment was great but the staff topped the cake nicely. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Spiros, the leader of the pack, was excellent. I trust him completely and was warmed by his kindness and attentions. Many members of the staff are relatives but they welcome everyone and really make you feel part of the family.

Again, if you go to Creta island, Chania is well-worth the stop and definitely make Blue Adventures Diving your scuba provider. Thanks again!

Amazing experience, thank all of you for welcoming me in and helping me finish my instructor rating. The shop was professional and organized as well as their staff. This is a great shop to gain experience as a professional diver. If you’re looking to sharpen your skills as a Divemaster or instructor, or you are pursuing those ratings this is a great place to do it. You will get tons of teaching, and leading experience.

As for the dive sites, they were incredible! You get a little bit of Cretan history mixed with some adventure. The instructors and dive leaders always make you feel safe and welcome and pride themselves on making sure your experience is one of a kind. No matter your experience level you are in good hands

I will take everything I’ve learned at blue adventures with me for the future of my diving career.

Thank you all!

This is a great diving centre, ran by a group of wonderful people located near some amazing diving spots. If you're into scuba diving, I wholeheartedly recommend Blue Adventures Diving!

I got my PADI dmy PADI diver license here and together with my SO went on a dive to the cathedral cave with them. The folks at Blue Adventures are people who love what they do and went out of their way to give us the best experience possible.

Gina is absolutely amazing, she helped with organising everything and helped us with any requests we had, despite our changing schedule. Kostas is an excellent instructor, he explains everything really clearly and keeps the right pace for the lessons to make sure you are comfortable as you progress through the harder bits.

Also, special thanks to Spiros, Dimitri, Fabien and Ben - who helped me organise a special moment for my fiancee. It was wonderful and will be a lifetime memory for both of us.

See you next time :)
