We (adults + 13 years) were picked up directly at the hotel. In the diving school we found everything very clean, disinfection was available and the equipment was cleaned accordingly after use. With Yanis and his team, very prudent, friendly and on the sensitivities of the guests (pressure equalization, ...) guides got to know. The briefing took place via video in the appropriate language, after which it was personally deepened. There was enough time to adapt physically to the underwater world. 4 student divers were accompanied by 3 guides and we dived up to 7m deep. It was wonderful! Since the guests are divided into groups, there may be waiting times. However, the small beach of the village can be reached quickly on foot. There are a few restaurants, a few shops and loungers right on the water. Alternatively, you can stay at the diving school. We can only give one recommendation for this trip and say thank you to the great team!

My boyfriend and I loved this experience everything was perfect. The instructors picked us up at the hotel and then we arrived on site, the instructors speak several languages, it's great to understand and they accompany us throughout the dive. There was a monitor for 2 people and it was great! They also take pictures and take the time to show us sea urchins and starfish. It was the first dive for us and we really loved it, I recommend to any beginner it's relaxed and there is no risk

The guides were amazing to make us feel safe and have a great time in the water. The safety talk was delivered clearly to let us all know what was going to happen. The time in the water was excellent; we saw lots of of fish and the seabed is equally interesting. The only potential sticking point that we did not realise until we arrived was that the return transportation did not leave until 14.45 - we had finished swimming by 12.00. This gave us plenty of time to explore Agia Pelagia, but may have meant we missed other activities that afternoon. Overall, a fantastic introduction to scuba diving in a beautiful place!
