Underwater Fauna and Flora of Kalymnos Island

Have a nice journey exploring Kalymnos underwater!

Identify the species that we meet during our dives and enjoy even more your scuba diving and snorkelling!

On land, plants dominate. Underwater, animals dominate!

Therefore, with a few exceptions, almost whatever you see underwater are animals. No matter if they move (like fish, shells, nudibranch etc) or they are sticked at the sea bottom (like sponges and corals).

☀ With PADI Advance Open Water Diver course, get the Underwater Naturalist dive to learn more about the underwater realm and ecosystem.

Thanks to http://www.european-marine-life.org/ and the German book "Was lebt im Mittelmeer" for the identification guide and description of species.

Wherever possible, we include a small description from Wikipedia and links to more information.

  • We would appreciate your feedback if you notice mistakes on the names and classification.
