    I am going on a two week holiday to Greece and planning on doing a bit of island hopping and fitting in a few dives on the way - can anyone recommend good islands/operators?

    Thanx

    I was hoping to see some replies to your post because I am planning to go to Greece next Summer. Before I go to the popular islands tp party and probably dive (Mykonos, Santarini which I don't know what the diving is like there, but there are a couple of operators on Mykonos) I plan on going to Zanynthos which supposedly has some great diving, hearing it from someone that's ben there. Two operators there are Nero and Turtle diver I think. Go to this web site and click on Scuba diving at the bottom of the page

    Just talked to my cousin who lives in Greece, he said mainly the only places you can dive are Mykonos, Creete, and the Ionian Islands (including Zakynthos which I spelled wrong in the last reply). you probably already know but greece severly restricts diving in most of the country due underwater archaeological artifacts, where a diver may take something if lucky enough to spot something. however, they allow snorkeling everywhere.

    I'm picking up this old thread because we just got our tickets for a family trip to Creete in early May. We're bringing the kids, so if we get to do any scuba diving it will have to be with consideration for their needs. But some freediving from the shore will always do nicely thank you!

    If anybody have any information or experiences to share, it will be much appreciated. We are going to Chania, and I know there are a few dive operators there.

    I will, but note we're only visiting Crete. We're staying at Chania, and I have found one dive center so far: http://www.blueadventuresdiving.gr/ (Not Firefox compatible website)


    We've found a pretty little hotel which came out very affordable.

    One week in May including flights t/r (Norway) for 2 adults and 3 children AND a rental car = USD 1.850,-/ EURO 1.500,- :D

    Here's the dive center's boat:
