Blue Adventures Diving
The professional dive teams from Blue Adventures Diving will help you discover that Crete is every bit as beautiful underwater as it is above the shoreline.
Activities vary according to experience, with instructors on hand to guide non-certified divers venturing out to sea and some of the region’s best loved dive sites.
Snorkelling is also available, with more than 3,000 observing the marine life in its natural setting since 2017.
Dive spots include the Maherida, Spotlights Cavern and Seal, Cathedral and Elephant Caves respectively.
Holidaymakers can view amazing light shows from the ocean itself and swim down dark tunnels to uncover historic landmarks, many of which are surrounded by white mountains. Best of all, the water is incredibly clear, meaning that you can see the wonderful species of fish up close.
