Santorini Diving

Santorini diving

The volcanic geological background of Santorini offers great chances for diving. Many Santorini diving centers have opened over the last years, particularly in popular tourist places, like Perissa, Kamari and Perivolos. These centers offer diving courses for all ages and levels, rent the necessary equipment for individual dives and organize boat trips.

Interesting Santorini diving sites are found within the caldera lagoon, but also on the Aegean side of the island. Among them are the Faros Reef located just after the lighthouse on the inside of the caldera and great for beginners, the Caves Lagoon off the beach of Kamari, the Perissa Rock and the Nea Kameni island (volcano) where there is also the shipwreck of a tour boat.

Here are some diving centers in Santorini. Each diving center is presented with detailed text, photos and point on Google map. If you have experience with any of these diving centers, feel free to write your review. All request forms are sent directly to the diving center manager so that you can book a diving course with them or ask any question.
