Scuba Diving and Snorkelling
non inclusive / offsite
Diving in Kefalonia is magical, with crystal clear water and visibility of up to 40m you can glide through the warm waters and discover a range of flora and fauna. There are also several human archaeological and historical souvenirs, from ship wrecks and potteries to the remains of a Bristol Beaufighter from World War II.
Kefalonia is known for its tectonic movements. The surroundings experience constant geological changes, which give rise to interesting caves, tunnels, cliffs and arches.
A full selection of PADI courses is available. With more than 25 diﬀerent dive sites for scuba diving, there are daily boat dives to nearby islands to visit walls, canyons, caves, wrecks, and reefs. Each site is unique in terms of ﬂora and fauna.
Snorkelling trips are also available upon request or just head out at the clubs, the water is clear and there is lots to see!

This course is divided into three stages:
Firstly you will start with a briefing which explains the equipment; how it works, effects of pressure underwater, signals you need to communicate, rules on safety, and the diving skills you will practice before putting them into effect during the dive.
Secondly, you will start the dive in shallow water to give you time to familiarise yourself with the equipment and practise the diving skills you will be using.
Finally, when you feel comfortable and the diving skills are done, we’ll take you for a little exploration in a sheltered bay. Now, this is the fun part, you won’t forget this new experience of breathing underwater! Discover this fantastic new world at a depth where you feel confident and comfortable. You will constantly have an instructor by your side in order to make sure that your first experience in open water is safe, relaxed and fun.
