Crete dive sites range from ancient remnants, through wrecks, rocky slopes, caverns, walls, to reefs and “drop offs”. Additionally, the crystal clear waters offer visibility up to 30 meters. In a nutshell, this is scuba diving in Crete!

Anchor at our house reef Crete dive site

House Reef

Our house reef is a perfect place to do refresh dives and discover scuba diving. We start the dive from the beach just 20 meters from the dive center, we swim above a sandy bottom where we can practice skills in a very shallow area and then we go through an amazing journey full of fish swimming around the statues, to a big anchor at a depth of 6 meters. There we can also see a family of squids living in the area. We continue until we find a reef with rich marine life as octopus, puffer fish and sars. It’s the perfect place for a fun and shallow dive before exploring more Crete dive sites!


This dive site is only two minutes drive from the dive center by boat. First we descend to 5 meters depth and we reach the first wreck at a depth of 18 meters which is an old wooden fishing boat 15 meters long from which there is only pieces of wood left but you can still spot the rock ballast. Then going a little deeper around 24 meters you will find a small sailing boat resting on the bottom in two parts. Going to 26 meters, the biggest wreck will appear, a motorsailer that was sunk here on purpose for divers to enjoy it! The wreck is a wonderful habitat for marine life and we can often spot groupers, moray eels, octopus, lion fish, trigger fish, crevalle jack fish and sometimes stingrays around. All the wrecks are safe for any divers to go as there is no place to get stuck or trapped inside.

Among Crete dive sites, this one is an immersion into the Ancient Greece. There we can see so many amphoras that it’s impossible to count. Most of them are broken and they are all stuck together to make an underwater amphoras mountain. The archeologists believe that those ceramics amphoras fell in the water along with the houses that were there during the eruption of Santorini volcano. Marine life is also rich there and we can see lions fish, nudibranchs and many small marine life.
