Scuba Diving in Kythera: Excitement, Exploration, Enchantment

Scuba Diving in Kythera: Excitement, Exploration, Enchantment

The crystal seas offshore Kythera contain an exciting underwater world of reefs, caves and wrecks populated with fish, octopus, lobsters and squid. Artefacts range from the cannons of a pirate ship to the haunting wreck of the 8,800 dwt German freighter Norland which foundered in 2000. 

The waters provide a paradise for divers of all levels of competence and our booking price includes a special offer for those wishing to take advantage of the Kythera Dive Centre at Kapsali. George Lampoglou, is Master Scuba Diver Trainer Instructor. He is a certified member of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) and a qualified Emergency First Response (EFR) trainer. The Dive Centre offers courses for beginners, juniors who want to improve their skills and qualified divers who want assisted dives.

Fun for the whole family

Discover Scuba Diving is an entry level course for children over the age of eight that teaches the fundamental knowledge and basic techniques to safely scuba dive in open water. We begin with a briefing, try some exercises in very shallow water and then we are ready to discover the wonderful underwater world, the incredible feeling of the underwater gravity loss and the buoyant swinging like an astronaut orbiting the earth. Children learn how to equalize, make signals, empty the water from their mask or the regulator and finally breathe underwater.

The Junior Open Water Diver program can transform a 10-year-old into a responsible, trained diver within just a few days of vacation fun. When you complete your training with a minimum of four open water dives, you will be free to explore the underwater world…and, you will have earned a PADI certificate – the most respected diver certification which is valid lifelong and all around the world.

Already certified divers thrill to the adventure of open water dives in settings that will expand your diving capabilities and experience. Perhaps you want to further your training with an Advanced Scuba Diver or Rescue Scuba Diver course. Or maybe you will opt for recreational dives for photography, fish identification, and wreck exploration.
