|Santorini Diving Tours|
We start all the activities from our dive station at the Caldera Beach in Akrotiri; it's a small and remote beach close to all the dive spots with an amazing view to the whole island and the volcano. Many programs are offered by our professional divers and can be attended by non-certifired divers and certified divers as well.

Scuba Diving Program
No previous experience required
This program allows those who have never tried to safely experience the excitement of scuba diving.
We start from our Dive Station in Akrotiri Caldera Beach, where one of our qualified instructors will teach you basic scuba principles, the important underwater signals and how to use the equipment. This briefing takes about 20 minutes and then you wear your wetsuits and equipment and walk into the water right off the beach.
At this spot, there is a beautiful protected reef full of marine life that begins from the beach in shallow water and extends into the Volcanic caldera. You would first stop in shallow water (about waist deep) and bend down to take your first breaths underwater! Once you're comfortable with breathing using the scuba equipment you would go with the instructor underwater for a guided dive to the reef and you will have the chance to hand feed the fish. You would be underwater around 35-40 minutes in total. Total duration 2 hours. You will observe many colorful sponges, nudibranchs, snappers, groupers and large schools of fish that make this reef their home.
Are you interesting in the underwater world, but not in diving?
We offer a safe and fun snorkeling program to several locations around the south coast, in Caldera and around the Volcano. Accopanied by dive center staff you will go on an exciting boat ride, which will also give you a chance to see more of the islands formations. You will be swimming on the surface of the sea observing the marine life.
The snorkelers go with along with the certified divers out on the dive boat to one of our dive sites where there's impressively formed lava rock formations, lobsters, moray eels, groupers and spirographs lurking about.
