What you'll do
Discover Scuba Diving is your best option for a very first impression of scuba diving. It is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. It is also an amazing experience to share with a friend or family member. For children it might just be one of their first opportunities to outperform their parents or older siblings! Your experience will start with a 60 minute introduction to diving theory and the skills that you will apply during your dive. During a basic orientation to local marine life you will also be acquainted with some of the animals or plants that you may encounter during your dive. This way you will you know better what to look for during your dive and more appreciate the wonders that you will encounter. You will then be provided with the equipment that is right for you. Once fitted and comfortable we will head for Avlaki Blue Flag beach where we have easy access to calm and clear water. You will spent roughly an hour in the sea, learning and practicing a few skills and then going for your first guided tour underwater.
I traded in a career in consultancy and construction to make the sea my office. I am founder of Blue Yard Hub in Porto Rafti, a good-vibed scuba diving center in Porto Rafti where love for the sea, respect for the environment and social inclusion have been brought together under one roof. I take pleasure in sharing my passion for the Greek sea and its untold stories with anyone that wants to expand their horizon and is willing to take the leap into the Big Blue.
You will receive refreshments after your dive as well as proof of completion of the Discover Scuba Dive.
You will be provided with all the necessary equipment for the dive.

You will make your dive from the shore of Avlaki Beach, one of the few Blue Flag beaches along Athens' Eastern shoreline.
