    Very good experience! I joined snorkeling and he showed us some animal he found along the way, we can even touch them. We saw small fishes! The 4pm tour can be a bit cool when at 5-6pm. We couldn't find a bus after the tour at 9pm, so we call them and they even helped us to call the taxi!! Highly recommended

    It was a wonderful tour! From Athens you can get to Nea Makri by bus or taxi and as soon as you arrive at the diving center you're off. You can see a beautiful bay with the clearest water! Dimitris shows you many things, she explains and lets you know if you can touch the creatures carefully. The equipment is top, everything worked perfectly and you can even get a wetsuit, which I recommend to everyone!

    This diving experience was the highlight of our trips to Athens, getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the secluded beach of marathon bay. The views are breathtaking, the water is crystal clear and the marine life was beautiful. I would strongly recommend this experience to anyone coming through Athens and would say it’s as unmissable as the acropolis and the plethora of historic sights it’s an absolute must!
