You’ll find a wide variety of diving in the Aegean Sea including walls, caverns and reefs habiting the beautiful red Mediterranean corals.
On just about any dive, there’s a chance you’ll come across some artifacts. This is what makes diving in Greece unique, it’s like an impromptu archeological adventure every time you slip into the water. There’s also considerable life in the seas. There’s the chance you’ll find groupers, turtles and even dolphins, but your best bet for marine life is to slow down and think small. The Aegean has a wonderful collection of nudibranchs, invertebrates, crabs, shrimp, eels, seahorses and other easily overlookable stealth critters. Don’t forgo the diving once the sun goes down, however. Night diving is particularly interesting because that’s when cuttlefish, conger eels and octopi venture out of their daytime lairs.
There is easy access at both islands for diving, with boat and shore diving available and a range of sites that are suitable for both beginner and advanced divers.
