We had an amazing time with Denise and Dimo. Although my wife is very scared of the water, Denise managed to calm her with her unlimited patience that she has and convinced my wife to dive. It was an amazing experience and for sure we will come back. Cheers to you, Denise&Dimo!

Unbelievable experience with this guys. Very very respectful, very kind, lots of patience with all of us👌🏻. Boat was clean and safe, the instructions where clear. Price for a scuba trip very cheap for what they offer. A team of professionals, dedicated to their job. You can feel their passion with every bubble of air under the water. If i ever come back to Thassos, i will definitely dive again with them.

An unforgettable experience. I recommend this team to everyone. They takes care of absolutely everything in the smallest detail! They speak several languages ​​fluently, Greek, English and Romanian are just three of what we have hear. He explains thoroughly and in detail absolutely everything you need to know and in addition does not let you give up no matter how big is your phobia of water, swimming or diving, they have a very positive energy and extraordinary calmness. Prices accessible to everyone, but honestly after diving you won't even consider them being high. Many thanks to the team, Marian and Mona!

Everything positive that has been previously written is completely true. Denise and Dimos looked after us in every way. We have dived all over the world and in many places you are expected to most of the work before during and after diving. That is not the case at Gorgona. They both worked so hard on the two days we were there making sure that all the work was done for us.

Once diving, Denise ensured everything was clear before getting in the water, then once again when in the water, Denise repeated the instructions before diving.

They were upfront and very honest about what is under the water, there aren’t any wrecks or caves to explore but we were lucky enough to see lobster, octopus, nudie branch and quite a wide variety of fish.

The care and attention shown towards all of us on the boat was second to none. On our second dive there was a young boy of 8 years old with his parents who were all trying the Scuba experience who all had great day - so perfect for all ages.

We cannot recommend Gorgona highly enough, it is the only choice on Thassos and we wouldn’t look any where else.

Dont do this if you have problems with your ears. I am surprised that nobody warned us before. 100 euro per couple - no more than 3 meters down, nothing interesting to see, because our ears nearly exploded and we couldnt go further. After this we got otitis, and splitting ears ache.
The photos were terrible also. Sorry to say this, but for us it was not an enjoyable experience.

Thank you for leaving a review! We are sad to hear that your experience was not as expected. But in the same time I believe that we covered in the briefing all the necessary details that one needs to know for the dive. As you are saying we were bringing you not deep (only 3m) because you couldn't equalize the pressure in your ears. We go as deep as the person is diving with us can go. We always say not to force your ears when equalizing and inform us how you feel. That's why we didn't bring you deeper than it was possible. The places are nice but as you say your ears didn't allow us to bring you down and this is , I believe, no one's fault. In the briefing we always tell you how to blow your ears and even ask you to it so you can feel and understand what you have to do. We ask if you know how the pressure feels in your ears an compare it with the feeling you have when flying with the airplane or driving at altitude and if having issues with your ears. Before the dive we practice all the skills and then, it is up to you how deep you can go. During the dive, every time you equalize, we ask you if you are OK and depending on your answer we decent more, stay at the same level or ascend. About the photos we are trying our best but their quality is depending also on the conditions during the dive. Wish you the best!

I dived with my two kids. All of us are certified Open Water divers and we took 3 dives in total (2 separate days).

The diving center is good. Proffessional and a mindset of security. During the dives you definitely feel secure. Also very nice people running the center. Diving spots where average to be honest.

Areas of improvement. I would really like to participate in setting up the diving gear (as a certified diver). This might feel like a bonus to most people, that the diving instructors do everything for you. But for me and the kids, this felt a bit boring that we didn't participate at all.
Also, perhaps too big groups which creates waiting times between dives. After waiting for long over a hour in the boat between dives its too much. Kids started feeling seasick as well. Please take smaller groups.

Thank you for choosing to dive with us! We choose the dive sites according with the level of training of the people we have on the boat so everybody is safe and have a comfortable experience. Sometimes the boat might look busy but everybody receives the necessary attention. We offer also more private tours but we must be informed about this in time so we have time to organize it. We try to prepare ourselves the equipment for everybody so you do not have to pull the equipment and enjoy only the diving - more than this, the preparation process is faster in this way. About the time that you must wait between the dives, we try to make it as shorter as possible, but maybe it is not possible to please everybody: we have certified divers who want an least one hour surface interval, others who to jump back faster. Being on a boat implies also that you might get sea sickness so one must be prepared for such a case. Thank you for your kind review and wish you nice adventures!

I highly recommend scuba diving at Gorgona Divers in Thassos, I had the most interesting and captivating experience with Denise & Dimo ​​and the fish from the deep sea. 🐟🐬🐠🐡 You don't have to know how to swim, you just have to know how to enjoy the moment, let yourself be carried away by the wave and live it to the fullest. The instructors are always with you and make sure everything is safe & fun. We will definitely return, it was wonderful, something not to be missed for a successful vacation. Love you Denise & Dimo, you are the best❤
