Discover Diving for beginners
Have a real adventure whilst on Crete & take a short course in diving!
Join the professional team (PADI licensed) who gives you all the necessary details to take your first dive in the Cretan Sea and enjoy the wonders of the underwater world. No experience is necessary, just the ability to swim, is a must!
All the Instructors and Dive Masters are PADI Certified and adhere to the strict international standards of PADI dive education and safety.
The Dive Center is located close to the beach but at the center there is a swimming pool, classroom, restaurant and lockers.
There is a morning group or afternoon group so you can choose which part of the day you wish to join. The whole trip takes 4 hours from the start of the theory to the actual dive itself. All you need to bring is your towel for when you are finished. You will be given a locker to put all personal items in while you are doing the course & dive.
Note: One person is able to accompany you and stay at the pool or beach while the other does the diving course.
When the instructor is satisfied with your progress & the exercises and you feel comfortable underwater, you are then taken into the sea, which is only 20 meters from the swimming pool. This is when you get to experience scuba diving & the underwater world.
It is a 30-45 minute dive and to a maximum depth of 12 meters.
