The day I went, I was the only diver so I got a private dive. We went around an island and saw some moray eel, sleeping octopi and a handful of fish. Then we went to a reef with lots of neat fish and a smallish cave, which was really cool and you could surface inside. They know their stuff... More

Thanks for the amazing review...We knew you had enjoyed the trip by the way you went around hugging everyone before you left. Albena did say that you weren't as nervous as she was expecting and she also enjoyed diving with you both. And maybe you will come this way again in the future. More

We did a one day dive excursion with two dives. The first one was a shallow dive, perfect for new divers and the second one was a spectecular cavern-dive. I can highly recommend this diving base to everyone who wants to dive during their stay on Paros (the farry to Antiparos is mostly on time and you can make it... More

Hi, thanks for the positive review. The cavern is definitely one of the best sites around and everyone that visits it feel the same way about it as you. Hopefully the pictures/video is a reminder of the trip. More

We dived in the morning. The owner is really nice, they speak perfect english, they are punctual and professional. They provide you with all the equipment and it was a great underwater experience. However, I think in Greece there is not much sea life under the sea. We saw only fish and corals.

The last years, i always wanted to start with freediving. There is just something with it that seems interesting and challenging. The feeling of gliding in the blue water, the feeling of being at peace submerged in the sea. I met Gary, who is co-owner of the Diving Center, and we had a 30 min chat about what would fit... More
