    Hey everybody,
    I have been reading some of the greece dive postings and they have been very informative so far. however, there doesnt seem to be too much mention of diving in Mykonos and Santorini. I am going to be out there in Sept and thought that i would take advantage of some diving while i was in the area. A couple of the dive shops I have found are www.divecenter.gr and www.dive.gr

    has anyone used either of these shops?
    can anyone recommend any good dive spots or different shops?
    Can anyone give me any information that you feel would be useful before I get out there? This will be my first time diving overseas and using a wetsuit.

    Any help is appreciated! Thanks,
    Danielle

    Hi Danielle, welcome to the board,

    I do not know the operators you mention, but I dived last year with "Dive Adventures" in Paradise Beach, Mykonos, and I definetely recommend them. Very safety oriented operator, and great gang of people. You can find them at http://www.diveadventures.gr/
    and see some photographs of our trip at http://www.inaoep.mx/~itziar/images/mykonos0306.html
    I rented all gear from them, except for the mask, and it was all in good condition, and all rental consoles had computers.

    Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    Cheers,

    Itziar

    I think i sent them an email, but I havnet heard back from them just yet. I will try and email them again this morning and see what I hear from them. i heard back from the other dive shop and i just dont get a warm fuzzy feeling from them. hopefully your guys will be great and wonderful. I also heard back from the Santorini shop and they have been so helpful and wonderful. I am really looking forward to diving with them!

    Your pictures are great! Thanks for sharing them with me. :)

    Hmmm they are not quick replying to e-mail, as I remember, but they did reply. Last year they did not have internet in their offices: they had to go to Hora (main town) to check e-mail, so it took them about 4 days to reply to my first message, but once contact was established, it was easy. They also must be at the peak of their high season now. You can also phone: they all speak good English. If you speak with Costas (the owner), tell him that I send you (Itziar and David from Mexico).

    I received an e-mail from Costas recently, notifying a change in address: info@diveadventures.gr
    Is this the address you have been using?

    I hope all works out for you, and that you have a great holiday there.

    Cheers,

    Itziar

    P.S.: I have never used scooters...

    Dear Danielle,
    I have been diving in Mykonos with Dive adventures mentioned above by our Mexican friend and with Psarou diving center.Both centers are very good, select the reef dives (at Paradise point there are always very big groopers...) or the wreck dive.Diving in Mykonos and Santorini is expensive though and this will cost you about 60 Euros per dive,equipment included, wheather at the rest of Greece the price for a dive is about 30 Euros...I do not think you will find a scooter there, you do not need it...In Santorini I have not been diving, just snorkelling.
    Try the link you mention above
    http://www.divecenter.gr/ .There is also the Mediteranean dive center and I have been diving with them close to Athens where they operate another club.
    http://www.diveclub.gr/
    You can NEGOTIATE the price even better if you do a number of dives/.Visibility will
    not dissapoint you, I guarantee that...
    Have a nice holiday, enjoy Greece and diving,
    Regards
    George, Patras, Greece

    I have merged two latest threads that were about diving in Greece.
    BTW - Santorini is rather boring - nothing really fascinating to see uw.
