The program is aimed at beginners, so no license or previous experience is needed. All diving equipment is provided.

It was a great experience and the instructor (Emilios) was very nice and showed and explained everything well. Even during the diving process, he made sure that everything was okay or that help was needed. We felt very safe with him. You could see a lot of fish at the dive site. We would do it again and again. Don't forget to take pictures of yourself!

Emilios was the loveliest instructor and my group and I had a brilliant time. Very attentive and felt very safe for first time divers. We saw lots of cool despite including an octopus! Collected from our hotel and dropped off while also showing us a bit more of Halkidiki. 10/10 recommend!!

This experience was one of the highlights of our holiday in Greece. The instructions were very clear and we both felt very safe. Our guide Emilios was very kind, supportive and funny, helping to make this already very special day even better! Unexpectedly he had gone the extra mile, bringing an underwater camera so that we could capture photos. Amazing all around!!!
