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.

"Ein Erlebnis, das wir so schnell nicht vergessen werden. Unser Tauchlehrer Remy war einfach mega gut drauf, hat Späße gemacht und dennoch mit Ruhe und Gelassenheit den Tauchgang geleitet. Auch unter Wasser hat er uns jede Menge Muscheln, Fische, einen Oktopus , Schwämme und vieles mehr gezeigt. Die Mischung aus Spaß und Bedachtheit hat uns wahnsinnig gut gefallen! Als Anfänger, die wir schon beim ersten Tauchgang Lust auf mehr hatten, hat er uns schnell weitere Techniken gezeigt, sodass wir uns beim zweiten Tauchgang noch sicherer gefühlt haben und schon bald wieder einen Tauchkurs machen wollen. Fotos und Videos haben wir dazu auch noch bekommen! Es hat einfach wahnsinnig viel Spaß gemacht. Besonderer Dank gilt dabei besonders Remy!! "
