We had an amazing first time experience! It was our first time diving, and it was very important to us to feel safe, which we did every second. If we should ever take a diving certificate, it would absolutely be here! Thank you so much for opening up a new underwater world to us!

Yioryos is very professional and patient, he explains everything you need to know before you go into the water and he answers all your questions. He is also very warm and welcoming. If you want to have a diving introduction you will be in good hands with Yioryos. Fun and memorable experience that I strongly recommend!

After having a fantastic time with their Discover Scuba intro to diving experience, I decided to pursue my PADI Open Water Diver Certification. George & crew are very professional, friendly & above all made me feel very safe & confident during my training. I highly recommend them for kids & adults alike who are interested in everything from just checking out diving to going for their PADI certification. Cant wait for my next fun dive with them!

Stefanie you were an amazing student from the very start, your willingness to perfect the skills and your willingness to learn as much as you could about diving made my job certifying you a breeze! Can't wait for next year!

George has a vision to help Ikarian children understand and love the underwater world. If you have children this is the best place to introduce them to scuba diving. We made 5 shore dives including a night and we felt like family members.

I can't even recommend enough Amaso Center and especially George! Not only he is a super enthusiastic and full of energy guy but he is also a super calm and reassuring instructor. I have had my first ever scuba experience with him and all I know is that the day after I was already registered for the Open Water certificate. I also can't thank him enough for shifting around his schedule to make time for me and for ensuring that I was gonna leave the island with my certificate. Lot's of hours spent - so again thank you! - for overstaying at night at the center, for bearing with me as a student, for repeating stuff, for helping us clean out correctly all this equipment every single time, for playing in his guitar whilst we were resting or studying between the dives, for ringing us up to check out how our dive record was going on and long after we had graduated, for also taking us to see the WWII plane wreck, for cleaning the sea level with any given chance, for volunteering locally whenever there was and is a need at his own expense, for teaching us how to respect marine life and everything that comes with it. The Aegean Sea and especially Ikaria is full of beautiful marine life, colours, crystal clean waters (that you can see up to 12-18m depth and if weather allows), with lots of fish species and even a type of a mediterranean monk seal, monachus monachus that we have happent to see whilst we were swimming to one of the sites. If you ever visit Ikaria, don't forget to spend just 3-4hrs for the ''Explore Scuba'' or to go to the plane wreck if you have got at least the first Scuba certificate. See you next year George and Marianna
