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.

We are certified divers with very little experience , but it was a first dive for our kids. We arranged it the day before and when we arrived all the equipment was set up , in perfect... More

Myself and my girlfriend had never scuba dived before. As first timers we booked onto the "intro into diving". It was €55 and well worth the money. We booked to go on a Friday morning and we're greeted by our instructor upon arrival. After an intro into the equipment and safety advice which lasted around 30 minutes, we got into... More

Me and my husband are certified divers, but my dad is not. As we wanted to dive together, we decided to do the introductory diving experience which is sort of like a 101 course. The briefing was excellent, but as soon as we jumped into the water it seemed like the instructors were eager to finish. The experience only lasted... More

Came 3. One of us was first timer. The instructors Magda and Paul were great. Explained everything, were very gentle with the first timer and gave us the space we needed in the water. Totally recommended.

As a first timer, I was a bit nervous. Dimitris was very clear to the instructions and made everything roll out perfectly! The views were spectacular, we got to see an octopus and even fed fish! Highly recommended activity&very professional staff!

This was our first time diving and it could not have been under better conditions. The staff at Santorini Dive Center were professional and courteous throughout it all. They picked us up and dropped us off back at our hotel. Our instructor was patient explaining the ins and outs of diving. If you have even been curious about diving, and... More

Our experience with this dive center is really good. The instructor (Marc) is professional, approachable but also laid-back wich gave us a good feeling. He told us beforehand that there would not be as much fish as we have seen in, for instance, Thailand but we were actually really surprised by the many fish we saw here! The visibility was... More
