Diving in Greece
Everything you have to know and the best Dive Sites
Greece – the origin of modern culture. Where a multitude of fascinating relics can already be seen above the surface of water, what can possibly be discovered below water? Until the early 2000s, it was practically impossible to dive in Greece due to the many archaeological sites under water. The regulations have only been relaxed in recent years thus making Greece one of the most sought-after diving spots in Europe.
Particularly around the Greek islands, there is an incredible amount of places to be discovered. Especially lovers of wreck and archaeological diving get their money‘s worth here. But beware: You are only allowed to look at the underwater treasures, not touch them or take any with you! In addition, divers are instructed to report any findings and, as such, assist the archaeologists in their work. Regarding the fauna, fans of macro-photography are in good hands in Greece, because rather small marine creatures are at home here.
