Visited the dive center in August. We are both AOW. Very good communication when we organize the trip.
Well organized with the new Covid way of working.
They asked for a check dive before taking you out.. This is a good sign.
My wife, panicked when asked to fill the mask. The instructor was very patient and very professional and she managed to calm her down and my wife did it successfully.
The boats dive were good, no a lot of life on the rocks (it is the med.) but enough fishes to keep it interesting.
The only issue was a miscommunication at the end which meant we had to find our own way back to the hotel.
Overall I would recommend if you want to do a couple of dives when you are near Elounda.

We could not recommend Blue Dolphin and their amazing team enough. We visited in July 2023 as my partner who is an experienced diver booked us into Elounda Village so I could complete my PADI Open Water Course. My instructor Dajana was simply fantastic, putting through my paces and helping me get the diving bug. Having completed my open water during our first week I then decided to do my advanced open water with Dajana and enjoyed an amazing variety of dives (night, wreck, deep, navigation and peek performance buoyance) with my partner and fellow divers during our second week.

Diving with Blue Dolphin is an absolute must if you are staying in and around Elounda, whether you are a complete novice or an experienced diver. The team are so enthusiastic and helpful. As well as diving with Blue Dolphin, make sure you join them for some amazing hospitality at their Friday night divers dinner at a local taverna. You will not be disappointed!

Lucky the owner is very friendly and will accommodate you in any way he can. The dive team are very friendly and are very knowledgeable of their dive sites. Diving is done off a hard boat and only 6 divers maximum in the boat which makes for a more personal dive experience. They also invite you to a dive dinner on a Saturday evening at a local taverna which I would highly recommend if you have the time, proper Greek food and it was absolutely delicious. My wife does not dive but they allowed her to go snorkeling off the boat while we were diving. A very pleasant dive experience and I would recommend them to anyone who visits elounda.

Both me and my partner used Blue Dolphin whilst staying at TUI elounda village hotel. My partner was an experienced scuba diver and thoroughly enjoyed her 5 dive package. I had tried scuba diving in UK and not enjoyed it so was looking for a dive centre that was sensitive to the fact that I was a little anxious. By the end of 4 days I had done 5 open water dives and had my Open water dive certificate. Because they have a small cove where you can do your
confined water exercises I think it really does give you a head start with feeling comfortable in the sea. Big shout out to Diana who is fantastic - . Lucky who helped me with the theory. Brian was my instructor and he was great and really helped me complete the course and feel safe at all times. We saw plenty of fish including Lion Fish, Trumpet fish, moray eel and large Groupers as well as historical pottery at the bottom of the ocean. After the dive on the boat we had watermelon which was a lovely treat. The water is crystal clear, amazing viability, pretty flat and warm. I would definately recommend.

Had an absolute fantastic time with the Blue Dolphin Diving team for a week's diving holiday. Lucky, Dajana and their team were brilliant. We were taken to sites with items from ancient times, amphora such as old jugs and pots, as well as shell casings and aeroplane engines from WW2. My personal highlight was spearfishing Lionfish, with Dajana and Max (Alex 🤔catching 26 of this invasive species, and then a local restaurant cooking them, the way its going, this'll need to be done on a daily basis.

Amazing diving experience with the team. Thank you Lucky, Dajana, Kostas Alex (Max) and Jacky for all the wonderful guided dives. You are the best dive centre in the Med we have visited. Clean, tidy, organised and professional. Can't fault a thing. Our 10 dive package provided a different experience for every dive. Wrecks, amphora, ammunition, spent shells, anchors, octopus, eels, barracuda, star fish, trumpet fish, 2 massive grouper, the list is endless. My personal favourite was the night dive in the house reef. Also the divers dinner in Elounda Village was a good time to share stories of everybody's life adventures. I can see why you are celebrating 30 years. Keep up the hard work. See you again 👌🫶

Best dive center I've ever been, this team rocks!🤘 they take enough time, over and under water. especially when you struggle with something, they take some extra time to make sure you feel comfortable. I've done 10 dives with them and always felt safe and had a lot of fun. They also make sure you can dive as long as possible, e.g. if you have more air left than others, they will go for another round with you. Thank you Dajana, Lucky, Adam, Anika, Christina, Adriana and Dimitri for everything, I will come back for sure!

Had a fantastic experience doing a "Discover Scuba Diving" session with Adam. He was very patient with me as I was quite nervous but I felt very safe and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is a highly recommended experience with a very knowledgeable dive-master.

This was the second time we did our scuba diving certifications at Blue Dolphin. After an excellent experience last year, we decided to come back this summer - and would definitely choose them again in the future!

All the instructors are very professional and attentive to the students’ needs, making sure that they feel comfortable at all times and that they can find the schedule that works best for them. The equipment is very well kept and the school is located within a nice resort, where you can relax between your dives.

Due to the current circumstances, the school has stepped up its health and hygiene protocols - everyone wears masks and the equipment is thoroughly disinfected after each use as well as being assigned to the same person if planned to be used more than once. Therefore we always felt safe while still enjoying our time there.

Amazing experience! This was my first dive and I was slightly nervous but the instructors were fantastic, they explained everything really well and made me confident with the diving skills before we started. I enjoyed it so much we’ve booked another dive with them! 10/10 would recommend to anyone considering their first dive.
