FREEDIVING in Antiparos! We had 3 amazing days freediving around Antiparos with Gary! Gary is a passionate freediver and a great teacher. He took us to some of the best spots just a short boat ride away. The visibility in the sea is perfect and there is a lot to explore, like caves, swimthroughs, canyons. We saw a lot of fish, even two big fried egg jelly fishes. If you looking for learn/practice freediving in a laid-back, friendly and highly professional environment this is your place! Thanks to Gary and the crew from Blue Island Divers, we love to come back!

We enjoyed every moment with the Blue Island Divers Club - the guides and staff were professional and so kind we were happy to be part of the family for four days of beautiful dives. Special thanks to Gary who was patient and had an excellent sense of humor and helped us pass the free diving course. If you want to dive and you are in Paros or anti-Paros - this is the place to go. We'll be back for sure! Eli and Inbal

I can only recommend blue island divers! One of the best diving centers I have been diving with. If you end up diving with Gary, Laura, Albena or Bob, you will have a diving experience as it is supposed to be. The communication, the equipment, the briefings and the safety-standards; everything was perfect. Doesn’t matter if you are licensed or if it’s your first time diving, the instructors totally adapt to your wishes and abilities. I went on six dives with them and the dive sites were all very different and every one of them was so unique. Furthermore, the staff is so nice and it was fun to hang out with them on the boat. I will be back for sure and and I can only recommend everyone to dive with them. I would even come back for them if I stayed on a different island! Thanks guys!!!

Wonderful experience supported by a top crew and unique place to get your OWD certificate. Gary: Superb communication, good sense of humor and made sure we enjoyed ourselves to the maximum by organizing everything seamlessly. Bob: Very friendly, composed and tons of experience - everything you look for in an instructor who shows you your first steps under water, or when you're looking to progress into an advanced scuba diver. Laura: Bob's daughter, great support and always in a good mood helping out with all the bits and stuff you need. During the course we did our open water dives at some great spots during which I saw my first octopus. Having been here in Antiparos for over a decade, they will be the guys to go to when you're looking for the best spots to dive in Antiparos. Would definitively recommend and go back

After many failed attempts to get to Antiparos over the last 6 months (mainly due to Covid), I finally managed to get there and Gary from Blue Island was probably the best possible instructor I could ask for to help me upgrade my PADI from SD to OWD, and he did so in just 2 half-day sessions. Gary is a friendly person (as is Bob) with a great sense of humour, especially when tolerating student sarcasm :-). He is focussed on his work and tries hard to ensure his students are doing what is expected of them, and he was very helpful in providing that little push and motivation in getting me over the line without any compromises, which for me was quite confidence building by the end of the course. If I ever decide to progress my PADI further whilst I’m still in Greece, I won’t have to look anywhere else!
