Attraction details
Owner description: Santorini Dive Center has the best setup with easy and quick access to all the dive sites around the Caldera and the Volcanoes. The Dive Station is located at Caldera Beach, a small remote beach with traditional caves below the cliffs of Akrotiri village nearby the ruins of the ancient city overlooking the Volcanoes. Our Minibuses will transfer you there from your hotel. The station offers an easy and quick access to all the great volcanic dive spots because all of them are few minutes away. The divers can board from the small pier on the 9m spacious fibreglass fast diveboat able to carry 20 persons in order to start their dive trip. We have an office also in Perissa, at the southeast part of the island and is located in Perissa Camping in front of the famous Black Sand Beach, between the Camping's Beach Bar and Yazz bar.

I did a couple of fun dives and my friend did snorkelling. The people are very organised (picked us up from Fira, had everything prepared for me after having asked my size the day before, brought us back after the dives) and very friendly and sweet.

There are Greek instructors/DMs, as well as a very experienced Norwegian instructor and an Austrian DM. Many languages to choose from. :) Diving at the caldera was an unforgettable experience - there's not many fish, but the geology is amazing. Diving in the house reef was also lovely - a great, healthy reef.

Would definitely recommend.

Booked a try dive for my daughter and her friend, and I came along too as a certified diver. A wonderful service from Paul and his team through out. Picked us from our Apartments as arranged, and dropped us back again afterwards. On arrival as Dive Centre, the view around the Caldera was breath taking. Has to be the best Dive location on the Island. Class instruction from Dimitrius was excellent and suited to the event. All the kit was ready for you with your name on it - great idea. Instruction on use of kit was very good. Into the water, again great instruction and one to one with those who were nervous. 40 min dive to nearby reef to feed the fish which was fantastic. Again great instruction throughout the dive, looking after everyone making sure all was ok. Checking people's buoyancy etc.
Then back to dive station to de-kit. If your looking to Try Dive while in Santorini I think you will be hard pushed to better Santorini Dive Centre. Great value for money.

Paul, you have a great set up and team too.

Many thanks
Andrew, Lois and Hope

My wife and i went scuba diving for the 1st time.
We were picked up from out hotel and taken to the diving center.
the instructors were very co cordial ,helpful with a good sense of humor.
It was almost one instructor per person.
the training they provided was very good and easy to implement.
never once we felt unsafe in water.
they were always there watching and monitoring us,

the water is very clear and has good visibility, but there is not enough marine life except small fishes.

but overall it was an amazing experience.
