As a certified diver, you have the opportunity to discover the fascinating underwater world around Rhodes alongside a local guide with Lepia Dive Centre. Whether in the reef of St. Paul's Bay, at the small island of Pentanissos or at the mystical wreck of Giannoula K., there is a lot to discover beneath the surface of the water around Pefki and Lindos. Get ready for a true diving adventure in the incredibly clear waters of the Aegean!
Our diving centre is the ideal starting point for a diving adventure at one of the numerous dive sites around Rhodes. The proximity to the Lindos Basin, the second deepest point of the Mediterranean, and the warm, clear waters, which guarantee over 30 m visibility, make our area a paradise for passionate scuba divers. By boat or car we reach the colourful reef and impressive caves of St. Paul, Petanissos Island with its unique rock formations, and the wreck of Giannoula K, considered to be one of the best dives in the Aegean Sea.

- 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 we start, you fill out the necessary forms and we will check your certification. Afterwards, you will receive the booked equipment, which we will have prepared for you.
As soon as everyone is ready, we go to the dive site either by car or by boat. After a short introduction, you are ready to dive into the fascinating underwater world. After the dive, we take a surface break on land and you can use the time to eat and drink something. If you have booked two dives, we will do the second dive of the day after that.
After the last dive, we return to our base. If you took advantage of the hotel pick-up, we will take you back to the pick-up point in the afternoon after the second dive.
