Santorini Dive Center has the best setup with easy and quick access to all the dive sites around the Caldera and the Volcanoes.

The Dive Station is located at Caldera Beach, a small remote beach with traditional caves below the cliffs of Akrotiri village nearby the ruins of the ancient city overlooking the Volcanoes.

Our Minibuses will transfer you there from your hotel.

The station offers an easy and quick access to all the great volcanic dive spots because all of them are few minutes away.

The divers can board from the small pier on the 9m spacious fibreglass fast diveboat able to carry 20 persons in order to start their dive trip.

We have an office also in Perissa, at the southeast part of the island and is located in Perissa Camping in front of the famous Black Sand Beach, between the Camping's Beach Bar and Yazz bar.

I did my PADI open water qualification with these guys, and they were simply amazing - from the detailed responses to my (many) questions in advance, to the everyday pick-up from my hostel and drive to the dive centre by Martin, (including some secret scenic routes ;)) and of course a very professional welcome at the centre. My instructor Dimitris... More

I took the beginners session & my instructor made me feel really comfortable. Its not everyday we go Scuba diving & so it is important that the one who is trying really gets to have a great time. And that's what exactly happened for me. The instructions, practice session & the time spent under water was enough for me to... More

I did a beginner dive since I have only done it once before and was still a little nervous. The guys at the Dive Center were amazing and very welcoming. Martin picked me up near my hotel and Demitri and Martin were wonderful and both very patient. Demitri is hilarious and helped me to relax. If I come back to... More

We had a wonderful time with Marc and Demetrius. They are professional, responsible, patient and funny. The email conversations with Anna are quick and efficient. We... More

I took my 13 year old on his first dive, with Santorini Dive Centre - he got a bit nervous as we were getting into the water and Demetri was fantastic talking him through the process. Before you knew it, we were all happily swimming underwater. Now my son wants to go back! The Santorini Dive Centre - was great... More

Me and my girlfriend tried the Discover Scuba program and it was really fun experience. The instructor is a professional and gives you the need-to-know basics before you even touch the suit. Then you got into the suit and try it in shallow water. If everything is ok, you go for a nice dive in deeper waters, and you can... More
