Greek seas with their crystal waters have their own special characteristics making them unique for diving: reefs, shipwrecks, innumerable caves and a rich flora with many sea plants and sea anemones. On the other hand, it has an equally interesting sea fauna. This consists of shells, sponges, sea urchins, octopuses, starfish and many kinds of fish that will definitely draw among other things, your attention.
Up to the present day, dives with an autonomous dive apparatus were to a great extent forbidden, but with the new law concerning the recreation dives applied in our country since February 2006, things have changed to the better. This new law, pursuant to the European diving standards, allows dives throughout Greece with the exception of some areas that are of specific archaeological interest. This had as a result, besides the diving centers that operated until then, to pave the way for the creation and operation of new centers that train or accompany those interested in diving in recreation dives. Thus, things have changed in Greece and recreation dives have started to gain ground, as circumstances for the development of the specific sport-hobby are prosperous.

Where to dive
There are now no restrictions as to where one can dive, and the possibilities offered are many even in Attica (Limanakia Vouliagmeni, Marathon etc), while diving schools are consistently in search for new interesting places for dives. Relatively close to the capital, in the northern part of Evia, and in particular in the secluded complex of islands Lihadonisia, an impressive sea bottom with many shipwrecks, waits for you to discover it. Aegean islands also offer many possibilities for diving: the island of Paros (Santa Maria, Naousa, Pounta in Antiparos), the volcanic Kythnos, Mytilene, but also the Ionian sea in the beautiful islands of Zakynthos and Kefallonia.
