Why diving in Santorini is a good idea

The Volcano has created some magnificent underwater scenery, so we have a lot of wall dives and never ending drop-offs. At the dives sites around the New& Old Volcano, you can see all the lava formations and find marine life such as lobsters, moray eels, clams and spirographs hiding among the rocks.

At the dives sites around the edge of Caldera and below the cliffs, there are many colourful sponges, nudibranchs, barracuda and many schools of fish.

Immediately offshore the dive station there is beautiful reef that begins in shallow water and extends into the volcanic caldera. We protect this reef, we don’t let people fishing around and looks like a mini marine park.

All diving tours offered by “Santorini Dive Center” can be booked securely and safely with our online booking system.

Non-Certified Divers

The Discover Scuba Program starts from our dive station on the beach, where one of our qualified instructors will teach you basic scuba principles, the important underwater hand signals and how to use the equipment. This briefing takes about 20 minutes, and then you would get into wet-suits and equipment, and walk into the water right off the beach. You would 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 nearby 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. In order to arrange your holidays you must know that after one dive is not recommended to take a plane for 12h. The trips are done twice a day, at 10:30 and at 13:30.

The snorkelers go out with the certified divers. Which exact sites we go to depend on the weather etc, but we generally do one at the volcano island and one at the cliffs of the caldera where there’s impressively formed rock formations. Basic swimming requirements. Not guide or instruction is included.
