As a woman traveling alone through Greece, it is always a bit nerve-wrecking adventuring off with strangers. That being said, the moment I started emailing with George to make plans for a private diving experience I knew I was in good hands! He was so accommodating and more than happy to organize a dive that fit my needs. I could either do a shore dive and call it a day or do a boat dive, which included snorkeling, a trip to a private beach, and a dive. He even offered a plethora of locations to choose from to personalize the experience. I chose the boat dive: snorkeling at Arsida, a stop at a private beach, and a dive at Pothitos. For all they were willing to include, the price was reasonable.

Evan happily picked me up from my hotel in Athens the morning of the dive (an amenity included in the cost) and drove me to the boat. After filling out the necessary paperwork and reviewing my diving skills we set off for snorkeling. The location was secluded and beautiful, not to mention Evan and Nick were great company! Afterwards we stopped for a short while on a private beach and they provided drinks and snacks (also included in the cost of the trip). When I was ready, we prepared for our dive. I was delighted to see they had quality gear for me to use (wetsuit, mask, BCD, and all). The dive itself was very pleasant - Evan had accompanied me snorkeling and Nick (who is very experienced) accompanied me on the dive. While we were under he was great at leading the way, letting me explore, and pointing out fun things to see. While I brought my own GoPro with me, I was excited to see that they both had cameras with underwater housing to take pictures of the experience. At the end of the trip Evan drove me back to my hotel and George emailed me with all the information for my dive log.

Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a better crew. Evan and Nick took such wonderful care of me that I wouldn't hesitate to dive with them again or recommend them to others.

George and his crew gave us our very best day in Athens! We expected the snorkeling and swimming to be fun and the views from Poseidon's Temple to be amazing. However, we did not expect the incredible personal attention we received. George went above and beyond when he joined us for dinner in the bay under the Temple to watch the sun set and took us to the best ice cream place in Athens on our way to be dropped off. They also gave us an underwater camera to use to capture all of our fun moments! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone!

I decided to take my 8yr old daughter away to Athens as she is studying Ancient Greece at school this term. As a single dad it's difficult to find things that she may like so I would be lying if after booking this half day boat cruise, I wasn't a little bit worried.
But there was no need. It was absolutely fantastic!! My daughter absolutely loved it and before long was jumping off the side of the boat into the water! We did snorkeling and swam into a cave. They guys were amazing and extremely helpful! I would happily recommend this to anyone!! We finished the day off with a stunning sunset. One of the best experiences of the life!!

This was an amazing experience! You get more than you expect from the private tour including more than two islands if you wish; plus the Temple of Poseidon! They take into account what you want to do, as they say "this is your tour/day" The guides were friendly, outgoing and understanding! One of our group got seasick and they had medicine! The clear blue waters of the Mediterranean are breath-taking, and the sea life is astounding! I would recommend this tour to everyone! Don't worry if you do not have an underwater camera, the guides have one you can use! Give them your email address and they'll email your pictures to you!

What an experience! The private tour was much more than I was expecting. The guides were very nice and catered to our time. I felt safe the whole time when I was snorkelling. The added Poseidon's Temple site was great too. This is a must for anyone who is interested swimming/snorkelling in the Mediterranean and seeing some great views.
