My name is Giannis Maravelakis, and my relationship with the sea started when I was a kid, because my father was fisherman. I wanted to go deeper than him so I started my first scuba diving certification in 2009. From 2009 I was working in different scuba diving centers as an employee so as to gain experiences, working materials and valuable friendships. I became instructor at IANTD firstly and now I am a SSI ow instructor trainer and lifeguard. At 2019 we decided with my wife to open our own diving center as a small family business at Agia Pelagia village, ready to offer you a unique scuba diving experience!!

Not a good time we were rushed it was our first time scuba diving they just showed us a video and then basically put us in the water, and my wife was already anxious about going into the water because of health issues and they were really pushy and so when she wasn’t able to finish they just left her on the beach and then we had to pay 20 euro on top of the price so he could send an email with the pictures… not happy

It was the first time for me to do scuba diving. I was nervous when I get into water, but the staffs helped me to be calm. They are really experienced experts, so everyone may rely on them.

Для первого раза вполне нормально. Времени хватает, чтобы понять что такое дайвинг и сделать первые шаги в этом ремесле.

It is was great! Transfer was just in time. Ioannis was super quick to respond. The instructions was good and quite easy to understand. The spot is really beautiful. The only thing i wish it be longer, but you know, it is always like that with a great experience.
