Originally a refugee boat bringing people over to Greece from Turkey. After spending a few years in the main harbor, the boat burned down and was dragged out of the harbor to its final resting place at about 20m under the sea surface.
Xyilo Island Barrier Reef
Full of ancient broken ceramic amphoras, seagrass beds, large schools of fish, a stunning barrier reef that goes over 70m, and known for regular mild currents between the island of Symi and Nimos, this is an exclusive dive for more experienced divers. This stunning place is known for its 50/60m clear visibility under the sea surface and its outstanding flora and fauna.
Nimborio and Gyala
This is our primary training dive site, with calm conditions, clear water, plenty of fish, a sunken village dating back almost 3000 years ago, and ancient greek naval wreaks of a battle involving Spartan vessels.
One of the most jaw-dropping beaches in the world: this site has unique barrier reefs with calm conditions and very interesting rock formations and topography: the perfect place for a scuba diving adventure!
Turtle Beach offers the best chance to admire turtles in their own natural habitat. Loggerhead is a smaller specie compared to other turtles, and that’s why many of them are quite shy around people. The chance to see this kind of turtle is often higher at the beginning of the summer season.
