Since its inception in 2008, Cycladic Diving has been promising a memorable and highly emotional underwater expedition, offering safe and gorgeous diving tours around the island of Paros.
Choose one of twenty available dive spots, such as Tripiti, Poseidon Eye, and Preza (a small island between Paros and Antiparos), and take a guided deep dive, depending on your experience level! The seas of Paros are full of marine life, beautiful coral structures, scenic reefs, and stunning rock formations. All divers are SSI and PADI certified, as well as HSA (Handicapped Scuba Association) professionals, properly trained for every circumstance. Moreover, the diving center is ideal for children over the age of 8, providing shallow waters for an early-life snorkeling experience!
The personnel is ready to help you learn more about scuba diving, especially if you happen to be an English, French, Italian, or Greek speaker. In addition, every instructor in Cycladic Diving has been a vocal front-row supporter of ocean life, raising environmental awareness over the dangers of sea littering. The confined water training facilities and the boat bay are a brief walk away from the center, inside which there is a small shop that can provide you with some reusable water bottles, plus custom organic cotton t-shirts.
The center is open from April to November, Monday to Saturday, 09:00 - 18:00, and Sunday, 09:00 - 14:00.

Not recommended for first time divers
The diving teachers are experienced and professional but not recommend for first time divers as you need to understand the theory and basics of diving and also should have enough time to practice it before diving to the sea especially for first time divers. I was told by a Areiti, an instructor at the center, to not dive because they could not find my size of flippers after we’d already paid for it. I have a 38 EU shoe size, so not too big or too small. The equipment provided by them ruined my experience as it did not fit me and my friends well and they did not have many sizes available. My goggles did not fit me and water kept entering my nose and eyes so I had to come up, they did not let us re-dive again. They took 10 euros for photos and did not provide photos of all people in the group. We do not reccomend Xtasea divers for inexperienced divers. They sent 1 instructor for 4 people which was clearly not enough for first time divers as I have dived before in the Canary Islands where they have 1 instructor for 2 new divers so it’s safer. Our experience could have been better and we’ll organised.
