Diving in Greece
Greece and especially the Cyclades are without doubt one of the best destinations for diving. The Aegean light reveals a wild landscape with stiff cliffs alternating with picturesque coves and beautiful beaches. The crystal clear waters, caves, reefs and underwater life make the Aegean one of the best places in Greece for diving, snorkeling, swimming and all kinds of water activities.

The need to explore the underwater world led man from ancient times until today to develop scuba diving. The first efforts for scuba diving started from Aristotle’s era to continue in the Middle Age by Leonardo da Vinci. Roger Bacon constructed the first breathing device in 1240. The efforts continued during the Industrial Revolution, when the breathing devices were improved significantly. Later on Jacques Cousteau perfected the pressure regulator. His work spread diving all over the world and helped scuba diving to evolve. Scuba diving in Greece and especially in the Greek islands due to the underwater wealth developed a long history. From the scuba divers of antiquity up to the sponge divers of 19th century, the Greek tradition in diving continues until today.
Why should we do scuba diving in Greece?
Scuba diving is an activity that allows us to discover and explore an entirely different world. Because of the lack of gravity and neutral buoyancy the scuba diver hovers underwater living a unique experience similar to the one that man has in space. The scuba diver visits places that most people cannot see in their everyday life.
Greece’s underwater world hides beautiful images, rich flora and fauna. The Cyclades and more specifically the island of Folegandros is one of the best places for scuba diving in Greece. Scuba diving is an activity anyone can take up easily. You only need to know how to swim, this is why it is suitable for children too. Being in contact with diving and underwater life brings man closer to nature resulting in developing respect, love and awareness for the environment. The blue color of the sea and the sound of breathing relax the senses and create an incredible tranquility. This experience helps us to feel free under the water since there is no need to return to the surface to breathe.
