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.

Awesome experience. My girlfriend wasn't even comfortable snorkeling before coming here. After 1 lesson, we both decided to get another and are already planning our open water certification. Diana and Brian are cool, calm, composed and experienced. Both dives were fun, safe and great. Loved it here. Easily one of the highlights of our trip!

My kids, now 11 and 16, have been itching to learn to dive and this was it. The team at Blue Dolphin offered us the chance to give them a taster dive after a classroom teach-in on the key safety basics. I could come along and do the dive as well. The instruction was very clear in the classroom and easy for them to follow, told in plain English and in a non-technical way, which I liked. And they loved the dive, which was split into 2 parts. First, safety exercises (mask clearing, buddy breathing etc) which we did in a small (25 square metre maybe) section of sea that is cordoned off from the open sea by a man-made 'wall - so extremely calm like a swimming pool. And then we slipped through a small opening into the sea to complete a proper open water dive, with instructor Diane holding them both as we went to a depth of about 10m for a 40 minute dive. They loved it so much that they now want to go on a diving holiday. The water is so calm and clear here, and we saw lots of fish and a moray eel.

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.
