Our team of local diving experts offers you the unique possibility to literally plunge into your very first Scuba Diving experience! Come explore the beautiful Kalivaki beach, one of Crete's top beaches, while also discovering a new sport in a safe environment.

Dive Area
For this trial scuba diving lesson, we stay in the bay at Kalivaki beach, where we can benefit from highly beginner-friendly conditions: sandy shore, shallow waters, great visibility and an awe-inspiring view on the local underwater life - what more could you ask for?

- Meeting & Preparation:
Depending on whether you'll use our hotel pick-up service or not, we'll either meet at your hotel between 08:10 and 08:45 a.m. or at 08:10 a.m. at our school's office in Rethymno. We'll then all be at our beach base at Kalivaki beach at 9 a.m. Once there, your instructor will give you a short briefing on the basics of diving, the safety rules and the equipment used. After the briefing, you'll be ready for your diving adventure!
If you wish to use our pick-up service, simply let us know beforehand and we'll gladly come pick you up from your hotel.
- Diving:
Together with your instructor, you'll start your shore dive from Kalivaki beach. During your 45-minute dive, you'll be able to dive up to 6m deep and use the knowledge you'll have gained during the briefing: basic diving skills, underwater communication signals and understanding your equipment's purpose. After your first dive, you also have the option of doing another dive twice as deep as the first one! If you're confident enough and still have energy to spare, you can opt for a second 12m shore dive.
- Return:
Once the activity is over, you'll get back to the base where you can quickly take a shower and change. If you've opted for our pick-up service, you'll be brought back to your hotel.

The team was super nice and accommodating. Even as a beginner you felt super safe after the briefing. And even if you were unsettled in the water, you were helped immediately and you were calmed down. There was also free coffee and water. All in all a great experience. Gladly again at any time.

Being my first time scuba diving, I felt safe and in good hands with our instructors. Safety was always first and foremost. Would highly recommend Evelin Dive Center.

An experience that we will not soon forget. Our diving instructor Remy was just in a good mood, made fun and still led the dive with calm and serenity. Even underwater he showed us loads of mussels, fish, an octopus, sponges and much more. We really liked the mixture of fun and deliberation! As a beginner who we wanted more from the first dive, he quickly showed us more techniques, so that we felt even safer on the second dive and want to do another diving course soon. We also got photos and videos! It was just a lot of fun. Special thanks go to Remy!
