Did five dives with Mark and one with Dijana (I think that's how to spell her name!), and enjoyed them all. They took pains to get us to different dive sites each time, and we managed good long dives each time, always surfacing with 50 bar in the tank just like PADI say we should. The locals are, unfortunately, demon... More

I spent the last two weeks with "Lucky" and his team to acquire the OWD certification. Everything went nice and smoothly, starting with the online theory course prior to my first dive, as well as the training on-site. The complete team - including Diana, Marjolene, Anastasia, Anna, as well as Pierre, Stan and Andrey - were extremely friendly, patient, committed,... More

My husband and I had booked an introductory dive too close to our flights. When Diyana realized this she immediately offered a full refund, drove us to the hotel to collect the money (as we had booked it through the hotel), sorted out snorkeling for us and the kids and did all the driving around. She was keen to ensure... More

Dear Eitan. It is Dajana speaking, the Instructor, who was teaching you Scuba Diving in Elounda. Thank you first of all for making the course with me and Blue Dolphin. Thank you also for taking your time to write an extensive comment. Normally, I don´t find enough time to answer comments at Tripadviser (and I really feel sorry for that),... More

Diving with Blue dolphin was, from the outset a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending this dive centre. Thanks in particular to Pierre and Diyana for really nice diving ( and help with getting a wetsuit on!)

The dive centre was on the grounds, but not part of, our hotel in Elounda. We had researched the area and knew that we wanted to visit here and see if we could try scuba diving. They had a great introductory dive offer for people who had absolutely no diving experience, which included all equipment rental, some theory outside of... More

I contacted Blue Dolphin Dive Centre by e-mail just prior to my weeks stay at the Aquila Elounda Village Hotel. Lucky, the owner of the dive centre, replied that evening and answered all my questions. Discount prices are available for forward bookings. I booked a five dive packaged. On my arrival I was given a warm greeting and introduced to... More
