Scuba Diving in Samos offers you the experience of diving into unexplored and virgin crystal clear waters with excellent visibility, unfolding the magnificence of the marine life and geomorphology of the Aegean Sea. Our experienced dive instructor will guide you safely, as you explore the sites he has so eagerly discovered around the island and which surely won’t fail to fascinate you too.
The eastern part of Samos characterised by its tranquil and warm waters, has the best underwater scenery of the island with numerous dive spots to explore, reachable by our daily boat dive-trips. The craggy coastline also means that there are some amazing geological formations with beautiful drop offs, walls, caves and caverns that make great underwater habitats for marine wildlife that loves the safety of this shelter, giving the diver abundant rewards.
We are a fully functioning and licensed SSI dive centre ready to train you whether you want to try for the first time or obtain more qualifications as an experienced diver.
We have a flexible training programme to suit every itinerary, from one to five days courses depending on the time you have on Samos. You will receive an overview of diving, the equipment and how to basically use it. We will take you into the water and begin to introduce you to breathing through scuba for the first time and you will experience the feeling of gliding through the crystal clear underwater world of Samos!
Before you become a certified diver, you can start with the ‘Try Scuba’ course that will help you to enjoy your first under water trip with an instructor you can trust completely and will teach all required skills and become completely comfortable with the equipment you’re using during your first underwater adventure.
You can also go on straight away to obtain your first diving certificate by choosing the ‘Open Water’ course. It gives you the opportunity to dive up to 18 meters all over the world and covers all the basics such as how to control yourself in the water, safety procedures and how to use the equipment. It usually lasts 5 days and you will need to give us about 3 hours of your time each day as well as read the manual (also online) and watch the associated videos and do a theory test.
SHORT ON TIME?
Get your scuba diving certification started while on vacation and finish up when you get home!
‘Scuba Diver’ course is the perfect course for those who do not have time to complete an entire Open Water Diver Program. The content of this program represents about half of a complete scuba diving certification program (SSI Open Water Diver). You can then complete the second half and become a certified diver at another time, anywhere that is convenient for you.
This certificate entitles you to take part in dives under the direct supervision of a Dive Professional up to a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet all over the world. When you decide to complete your Open Water Diver certification, the Scuba Diver Program can be fully credited to your training. This way you will not have to redo any part of the program twice. After a short skill update you can complete your Open Water Diver rating.
The next steps as a certificated diver will be to obtain the ‘Advanced Open Water’ certificate that builds on the knowledge you gained in the ‘Open Water’ course and certifies you to dive at 30 meters. The course includes the core elements of Deep Diving, Navigation and Night Diving.
Further SSI courses that you may do with us is the ‘Deep Diving’, ‘Night & Limited Visibility’, ‘Wreck Diving’, ‘Boat Diving’, ‘Navigation’, ‘Perfect Buoyancy’, ‘Waves, Tides & Currents’, ‘Underwater Photography, ‘Emergency First Response (EFR)’.

Spend an amazing time under water and a marvelous day with our scheduled boat dive trips.
Enjoy your way to all the dive sites that the east coast of Samos has to offer with our 7 meter rib speed boat. This twin powered Zodiac Hurricane has been especially transformed for the scuba diving and snorkeling purposes. Travelling with these specific vessels of Zodiac is a unique and powerful experience.
Close to the hotel and dive center is the ‘Kerveli Reef’ which has depths of 10 to 30 meters making it an ideal site for beginners and more experienced divers alike. With excellent visibility of up to 30 meters and no currents, the diverse marine life makes this an excellent spot for photography.
Similarly our home reef with its calm waters is a great place to get that first taste of scuba diving, brush up on those skills and enjoy a night dive within a naturally protected bay inhabited by a diverse marine life.
Snorkeling is an exciting activity that anyone can enjoy, and a great way to begin your underwater adventures. It’s your chance to start exploring a new and fascinating world with a minimum of equipment and little training.
Kerveli bay is an ideal snorkeling location with its shallow and still waters, making it ideal for children and non confident swimmers.
Just off the coast of Kerveli there is a small uninhibited island called ‘Kasonisi’, its size allows you to snorkel around it. Easily reachable by boat, or on foot following the path leading to the beach just opposite the island with a narrow sandy strait with very shallow turquoise waters, making it possible to walk across. Its remote sandy beach is an ideal location for a romantic and relaxing break and picnic.
Night diving is possible either from shore or by our rib speed boat. If you would like to experience the Aegean Sea from a completely different angle go for the adventure of a night dive experiencing the feeling of the tranquility and stillness of the seabed life.
Night snorkeling is ideal for all ages and assures unforgettable quality time for families, non divers and divers alike.
