I cannot recommend this place enough!!! We went together with my boyfriend and our instructor Andreas gave us an elite experience. Super friendly and welcoming staff, they explained everything in detail and they made sure we actually got it and know how to behave underwater. Above all that, just very sweet people working there, sharing their passion. The equipment was neat, it looked as if new, perfectly clean and very well handled. We absolutely loved it, will definitely return when in Greece!

We had the most amazing experience diving with Andreas. We happened to stay at the Airbnb co-hosted by his parents and we decided to experience scuba diving for the first time. Andreas has just the perfect calm attitude and takes the time to explain and coach you through everything. On our dive we saw a lot: all kinds of fish, octopus, "tamed" lobster, lionfish and to top it all off we were able to swim with a loggerhead turtle! We would absolutely recommend Andreas' diving school for a great experience!

Great dive center. Very friendly staff. I spoke to them before the dive via WhatsApp and they replied friendly and quickly. Dive centre itself is nice and clean, with high quality equipment. Did a dive at the house reef which is in front of the dive centre. Nice and calm dive with a lot of life. Would definitely go back during the summer to do some boat dives too.

Amazing experience. It was my first time diving and Andreas and Silvia were great instructors. You can see that they are truly passionate about diving! I felt comfortable all the way through and can't wait to go diving again. Besides the diving, Andreas and Silvia also gave us great tips of places in the area to visit. Their recommendations were spot on! I recommend anyone willing to go scuba diving to try it at scuba turtles with Andreas and Silvia!
