Scuba diving for first time is exciting, fun and uplifting!

Our priority is your fun and safety. We'll achieve this on your first dive by:

  • A proper training with PADI Discover Scuba Diving course.
  • A boat trip to an isolated bay on Telendos Island.
  • Exploring the seabed.

Safety first

Before you begin you have to answer a medical questionnaire. To see if there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving.

Let the fun begin

The fun starts with theory

Your PADI instructor will teach you the basic safety guidelines and skills.

Some questions you might have

What do I need to bring?

Your smile, your swimming suit and a towel. We'll provide all the necessary scuba equipment.

How long does it last?
