Diving in Greece

Explore diving in Greece

With more than 240 inhabited islands and a significant coastline, you’ll find a wide variety of diving that includes wall, wreck, cavern and reef.

There's also considerable life in the seas, particularly if you slow down and think small. The Peloponnese Wreck off Mykonos is one of the most iconic dives of the islands, so be sure to dive this 1930’s shipwreck. On Naxos, see the seaplane wreck, the Arado 196. The Koundouros Reef is teeming with marine life, and the visibility can be excellent.

In addition, for those with the necessary training and experience, take some time to do a cave dive while on Crete. The El Greco Cave offers an expansive channel to swim through, as well as a contained air pocket where you can surface.


When to dive in Greece

Greece sits to the East of Sicily with the Ionian Sea and the Aegean to the left. Greece and the Greek islands are welcomed with hot, dry summers with sea temperatures ranging from 22-26°C, to a cooler 15-18°C in the winter meaning scuba diving in Greece can be enjoyed year round.

A 3/5mm wetsuit is recommended in the summer and 5/7mm wetsuit in the winter months.
