On your first dive with Lepia Dive Centre you will discover the incredibly beautiful underwater world of Rhodes without the need for any diving certification. With an experienced instructor, you will explore the seabed of St Paul's Bay in Lindos and learn how it feels to breathe underwater. Those who can't get enough of diving have the option of doing two dives on one day and discovering even more of the unique rock formations and diverse underwater life.
St. Paul's Bay offers ideal conditions for your first dives. A mere 10-minute drive from our base, you will find a beautiful Mediterranean reef with a colourful variety of fauna and flora. Nevertheless, you are always in the sheltered area of the bay and never far from the safe shore. If you have booked a second dive, you will have the opportunity to explore the bay's rock formations and underwater caverns at depths of up to 12m.
- Meeting & Preparation:
We meet directly at our dive centre in Pefki or we can pick you up at an individually arranged meeting point along the eastern coast between Rhodes town and Gennadi. Before you start, you fill in the necessary forms and you will receive the equipment we have already prepared for you.
We start with a 30-minute introduction to the theory, where you will learn the basics of scuba diving. Afterwards, we will make our way to the dive site, where you will first practice the most important skills in the water. Then, you explore the underwater world up to a depth of 6 m for about 30 minutes alongside your diving instructor.
If you have booked a second dive, we will do it after a surface break on land, during which you can have some refreshments. This second dive is up to 12m deep and can take up to 45 minutes.
After the last dive, we return to our base. If you were picked up at the hotel, we will take you back to the starting point in the afternoon after the second dive. We will then send you the photos of your dive via e-mail.
