Theo's talent in dealing with children will leave a long lasting impact on the young members of our three families and a valuable contribution to the world of diving for the generation to come. What an amazing experience he has given them !

I went diving with my 15 year old daughter after we learned to dive last year. We explained to Theo that we were inexperienced & needed to build our confidence. Theo took us out on our own for a 45 minute five that was just perfect for us. Thanks Theo, it really built my confidence. We had a great time... More

Our first dive ever. A great experience in a calm and relaxed environment. Theo and his assistant, Alex (Theo's son) was very patient, made us feel safe and in good hands. Went to pet the octopuses surrounded by hundreds of fishes. Great day and great people. Allan and Mathias (father and son)

We only qualified at the end of last year so whenever we go somewhere new we have to find a dive centre to use. Our main criteria are safety, quality of the equipment & quality of... More

Had the pleasure to make a 45 minute beautiful dive under the proffesional and friendly guidance of Theo. As I am a relative beginner the selection of the dive site was perfect. When asked, Theo was kind to give me friendly pointers, post dive, on what can be things to think about and train. I strongly recommend a dive with... More

This guy is one of the best diver. He helps a lot with my buoyancy and with a problem with my mask. Thank you for the nice trip. See you next year.

Just completed 5 dives with Theo including a great night dive! Theo is the most friendly and professional diving instructor I have met. He has a great passion for diving and passing on his vast experience. I'm looking forward to diving again with Theo the next time I visit Skiathos. I thoroughly recommend Theo at O. D. C. for some...

Great experience with a professional and kind trainer. The diving place was excellent with a lot of fish,sea star and octopus. We felt very safe and entertained under the water because of Theo. If we return to Skiathos we will choose him again for sure.
