What you can expect

Experience the underwater world off the coast of Crete with a guided tour of the spectacular Mediterranean waters. Discover the beauty of the reef and the marine life that inhabits it, feel the thrill of discovery inside a wreck or a cave, and explore an amazing world far removed from ours.

Begin the course with a session that teaches you the theory and techniques behind good scuba diving, followed by water training in a pool or shallow sea. Under the careful supervision of your knowledgeable instructor, get accustomed to the gear and the water before setting out for the real thing.

When it's time for your open-water dive, descend nearly 20 feet (6 m) below the surface to explore the reefs and the array of native wildlife around the island. Everyone has a different reason for scuba diving, but every dive offers you the sheer enjoyment of experiencing the great feeling of immersing yourself in the magnificent underwater world.
