On November 25 we spent an hour and a half in the water. It was on a chilly side even we wore wetsuits. The water felt 65-67F. The water was very clear and visibility underwater was about 12-15 feet. We made a circle around the harbor observing a collapsed walls, dozens of columns and enormous fish schools.

So at first we learned how to breath and how to behave under water, and then went to the sea. I had some panic at the... More

Lovely dive, gorgeous ruins, we had no problem to just arrive and get a diving time an hour later. Everything provided, great fun exploring the ruins from the bottom. They speak multiple languages there.

Once there a friendly staff got us our snorkeling gear and walked us to the pier and pointed out the items on... More

You have to work hard to book a dive here as tracking down an e-mail address or telephone number for the dive center isn't easy and they don't always promptly respond. This made planning a trip here from overseas difficult. You have to call the same morning of your dive to confirm consitions are okay so can't be sure you... More
