Looking for a beginner scuba diving experience in Santorini for people who don't have a diving certificate? Come over to Caldera Beach in Akrotiri and join a certified Dive Master on a safe and fun scuba diving session on the volcanic seabed of the coast of Santorini. No previous scuba diving experience is needed to join. Discover what it's like to breathe underwater surrounded by the tropical underwater world of the Aegean!
Accompanied by a professional Dive Master or instructor, you will have the chance to try scuba diving for the first time in safety while exploring the sea bottom of Santorini - a fun and safe activity that should be on your bucket list!
You do not need to be athletic to try scuba diving. Anyone can do it thanks to the Discover Scuba Diving Programme in Akrotiri. It's an introductory scuba diving lesson guided by an experienced and certified instructor. With this course, you will learn how to use scuba gear, and how to "breathe" underwater while scuba diving.
This scuba diving experience on Caldera Beach is an easy introductory course that will help you step into the scuba diving world. Over the course of 2 hours, you will venture into shallow water to learn how to use the scuba gear, and how to dive. You will then embark on your first proper dive in Santorini, which will take place in a rocky reef where fascinating marine creatures can be found. An additional dive in open water around Caldera and Volcano can be provided if you want to explore the underwater sea bed of Santorini!
Time to tick one off the bucket list: join the certified instructors of the Santorini Dive Center on Caldera Beach and discover scuba diving on the beautiful Aegean coast!
Non-certified “divers” have the opportunity to take an introductory scuba diving lesson guided by our experienced instructors.
The Discover Scuba Program starts from the dive station on the beach, where one of the qualified instructors will teach you basic scuba principles, the important underwater hand signals, and how to use the equipment.
This briefing takes about 20 minutes, and then you will get into wetsuits and equipment, and walk into the water right off the beach. You will stop in shallow water (about waist deep) and bend down to take your first breaths underwater!
Once you're comfortable with breathing using the scuba equipment you will go with the instructor underwater for a guided dive to the nearby reef and you will have the chance to hand feed the fish.
You will be underwater approx 35-40 minutes in total.
