Activity description

The 6 dives package offers a unique opportunity to experienced divers to dive in various spots all around the island. You can choose from a list of 6 different dives to discover the shipwrecks of Christine Iome and the Romans wreck that has been in the sea since the ancient times. If you are not a big fan of ships, there is also the Junkers 88 bomber airplane that lies in a depth of 22 meters since the WW II. You can also dive down to discover the HMS Perseus submarine - an intact submarine since the WW II which is an extraordinary dive. If you prefer the natural underwater scenery you can explore the Cyclops Cave, or the St. Andrews reef. However, the diving sites depend on the experience of the diver. 

You will have two dives per day following the schedule of the diving team with one dive in the morning and one in the afternoon. If you feel like having only one dive per day you can arrange the schedule with the diving instructors. All the diving equipment is included with one tank per dive. All dive sites along the island's coastline are accessed by boat. During the dive each instructor leads up to 6 divers while most dives are multilevel in order for you to see and enjoy as much as possible. All dives end with a safety stop. Average dive time is 45 minutes.
