Explore the volcanic seabeds around Santorini on one or several dives departing from Akrotiri! Select a diving package from the selection and head out to the Volcanic Caldera, explore shipwrecks, and discover the Aegean marine life accompanied by a certified Dive Master!
Santorini Dive Center offers tank dives for certified divers in the best spots of Santorini. The diving centre is on Caldera Beach, which offers swift and easy access to the best diving spots around the Caldera and the volcanoes. The big volcanic eruption that formed Santorini left in its stead some magnificent underwater scenery with lots of walls and drop-offs to be discovered during your dives.
Each dive will depart from a small pier of Caldera Beach. You will board a spacious 9 m fibreglass boat that can carry up to 20 people off to the chosen diving spot, where you will roll into the water and begin your dive.
The dive sites around the New and Old Volcano of Santorini offer plenty to explore, from funky lava formations to diverse marine life. Commonly cited creatures include lobsters, moray eels, clams and spirographs hiding amongst the lava rocks. There is also a small passenger ship that sunk in the bay at the new volcano, offering great dives for experienced shipwreck divers.
At the dive sites around the edge of the caldera and below the cliffs, there are many colourful sponges, nudibranchs, groupers, snappers, barracuda and many schools of fish.
In front of the dive station in Akrotiri, there is a protected reef full of marine life where the divers, students or Discover Scuba divers of different levels can complete a unique dive.
All the dives are guided by qualified instructors. While some diving spots are weather-dependent, most dives around the Caldera and the volcanoes depart daily, so you are sure to join plenty of exciting dives during your stay in Santorini. Upon return, the divers can either relax on the beautiful small beach or enjoy the Greek cuisine and the breathtaking views of the Caldera cliffs and the Volcano at the traditional “Remezzo” tavern next to the diving centre.
