Activity description

Discover the beauty of the Aegean on this beginner's scuba dive from Caldera Beach.

A honeymoon location renowned for its dramatic vistas and iconic architecture, Santorini is just spectacular below the surface too! Home to active underwater volcanoes, technicolour reefs and stunning marine life, master the basics of scuba diving with an experienced instructor - choose from a one dive - or two dive package from Caldera Beach.

Location
This activity is run & operated from Caldera Beach on Santorini Island in the Cyclades, Greece. Renowned for its red sand beach and distinctive blue dome architecture, popular dive sites include Remezzo Reef, Adiavati Reef & Gialos Reef.

Activity
Meet your divemaster at the activity base in Thira for this discover scuba diving experience. An essential introduction to scuba diving, this one-dive or two-dive package is ideal for curious beginners of all ages and abilities. The ideal way to try scuba diving before committing to a full course, this experience can even be counted towards your final PADI certification if you decide to continue. 

During the day, you will learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. Once you've gone through the essentials with your instructor, you'll head to the boat for a shallow dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters. On this supervised dive, you'll get to explore the local reef and coral gardens, observing marine life like nudibranchs, invertebrates, crabs, shrimp, eels, seahorses and colourful reef fish. There is also the option for a second dive for those looking to explore further - travelling out to Gialos Reef.

Conditions
This activity operates during the summer season from March - October. Suitable for total beginners, the calm, bright waters provide stable year-round conditions for first-timers in the water or anyone wanting to learn a new skill.

Fue una mañana increíble. Vimos un montón de peces y nos explicaron todo genial para realizar la aventura. Fue una experiencia muy bonita que se queda en mis recuerdos. Fue muy guay poder hacerlo privado y no en grupo.

Superbes plongées

2 magnifiques plongées avec un instructeur (Dimitris) très expérimenté. Je recommande fortement cette activité avec Dimitris, il m’a mis en confiance tout le long de l’activité.

Simply put, we could not recommend Dimitris more highly! He is a thoughtful, kind, patient, accommodating and funny instructor. He picked us up and dropped us off (at two different locations). He made the theory portion accessible and easy to understand, and we both felt incredibly comfortable with him in the water. The dive itself was magical and suitable for a first dive. We only wish we had booked the optional second dive with Dimitris too!

We absolutely loved this experience and cannot recommend it more highly. Dimitris was amazing - he is clearly very experienced and he always made us feel safe and prepared. But more than that, he never rushed through the experience - from the moment of pickup from our hotel, he was happy to answer questions and tell us stories about the history of Santorini and the ecological work Dive in Action does in the region. We booked two dives and cannot recommend it more - seeing the reef was incredible. You can tell that Dimitris - who is a very interesting person in his own right - cares deeply about what he does and wants share that appreciation with this students. One million stars out of 10. The experience is private and not rushed, unlike more commercial dive shops, but you have an instructor with thousands of hours of experience and a wealth of knowledge about the island and its environment. Thank you so much Dimitris!

We loved this area!! We have gone to multiple others and none of our instructors were as helpful as Dimitris. He made sure we knew exactly what to do and triple checked everything for our safety. After our scuba diving him and his wife drove us to multiple rental car locations and found us the cheapest and best option. They even talked to the rental car company in Greek for us.

My experience was exceptional, with one on one teaching it was great to be able to explore so much of the volcanic reef! There was even a transfer to and from the location to my hotel I was staying in. I did my research on multiple different diving sites and companies and I would 100% recommend this one!

Great introductory dive. It was more about enjoying the feel of being underwater and learning about the ecosystem, rather than learning technical skills or seeing all that you would on a more experienced dive. Kept to small groups for a more personal experience, and Dimitris could help with things like buoyancy control the whole way (all necessary skills still explained and demonstrated first of course!)

Amazing Dive with Dimitris

The dive was great - equipment fit well and took just the right amount of time, 2-3 hours. Highly recommend diving in Santorini (especially with Dimitris) if you have a few hours to spare!

Dimitris was awesome!

We did one discover dive with Dimitris as it was my first time and my wife's first time in 5 years. He was very informative, caring, and patient.
