The instructors were very enthusiastic and comforting. I was very nervous and almost didn't do it, but the instructors gave e very helpful tips on how to relax and I was able to overcome my fear. The experience was incredible and I and I'm ecstatic I chose Santorini Scuba Academy for my 1st dive

This was a great scuba diving experience. The instructors and staff were extremely nice, helpful, and patient. They were happy to adapt to everyone’s comfort level of the group. They were very experienced instructors and gave a very clear and detailed demonstration before getting in the water. We felt very safe and at ease when scuba diving during this excursion. Highly recommend to anyone we saw a lot of great fish.

So well informed and felt very at ease being a first timer! We didn’t see anything too exciting but there were lots of fish and the volcanic reef was very cool! The instructor even took out camera and snapped some pics of us which was just amazing of him!
