After not diving (or being around warm waters) for three years, I was looking forward to our trip to Crete. I went with Scubakreta due to the good reviews and relatively close proximity to our hotel in Malia.

Since this was my first trip with children, I was only able to squeeze in three dives between other activities. Two of the dives were in"Octopus Garden" and the other one was in "Grouper's Fields". While probably not the most exciting, those sites offer some decent amount of local and foreign fauna (including invasive lionfish and discarded beach beds).

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rental gear in great shape (including extra precautions in the age of COVID-19). Credit card payment can be problematic. Other than that, I can absolutely recommend diving with Scubakreta!

If I'm ever back to Crete, I'm looking forward to finally making that Messerschmidt Bf 109 dive. :)

Thanks and appreciation to George and his great team. We set aside 3-4 days for my 11 and 15 year old boys to gain their PADI Open Water Certification but good weather and a patient instructor meant that they were completed in 2! I took advantage of the situation and completed my Advanced at the same time. Great communication by email to arrange the course dates and free collection from our hotel was even included

Can’t recommend this professional operation enough

Our 16 year old son completed his Open Water Diver qualification at Scubakreta last week. Our first contact with Katarina by email was friendly and helpful, and Harry’s while diving experience with Max as his tutor was fantastic. He was then offered good rates to do 2 more dives to improve his confidence and increase his diving experience. Would highly recommend

The ScubaKreta Diving Center is the main reason why the family returns to Hersonissos and will continue to do so for a long time - for the love of the Greek islands, diving with George and the staff at the diving center.

This year the son took his diving to another level and grew even more as a young man. The knowledge, passion, security and striving to make every meeting and dive something special is what best describes why we can not think of anything else.

Just returned home and full of impressions and fond memories but in mind already back next year.

11/10. Our first time trying scuba diving, and happy we choose Scubakreta. This was a marvellous experience - professional, multilingual, and fun! I certainly have no benchmark, but I wouldn’t want to experience anything else than this beginner course when trying it for the first time. You get the opportunity to learn the basics and try things on your own in a reasonable depth for rookies. Absolutely breathtaking experience!!!!

Great scuba diving centre!

We did the open water course with Max and just had the best time! We learnt everything in a fun way, without missing all the serious stuff.

I truely recommend scubakreta! The staff really takes good care of the students and you feel safe at any time.

Good job scuba kreta! Untill we meet again.

Very friendly and professional team helped me to come back to diving adventure.
They helped me to introduce my sons (12 and 13) years old to scuba diving. They looked after us all the way and helped me feel safe. They did it in professional and fun way.
I did also (only) one dive with them. It was easy one but very interesting and enjoyable just the type of the dive I needed.
Manager Katrina kept great communication before my arrival and helped with making the choices what dive I should pick.
I highly recommend the centre whether it is your first experience or you already started your adventure with diving.

This was my 16 year old daughter's second time scuba diving, so I still wanted to make sure she would be well looked after. Katerina emailed all of the details and gave me full confidence. When my daughter returned she was thrilled with the whole experience from the theory, pool and then into the shore. My daughter will always remember this experience. Thank you to Scubakreta and Katerina

We had a great diving experience here! Our children (13 and 16), for whom it was their first time scuba diving, really enjoyed it, as did we! We were with 6 people (our family + another couple) and 4 instructors. The instructors were really great, young and very skilled scuba divers from all over the world, very professional and they did everything to make us (and especially the children) feel at ease. So thank you very much!
