Book your Santorini snorkeling or scuba diving tour and explore the amazing underwater world. Advanced divers can enjoy a diversity of the dives while basic training is taught to beginners.
The Scuba diving Santorini Tour is a delightful and thrilling experience. The volcano of Santorini erupted in the Bronze Age around 1630 BC, breaking apart one large island to form the circular archipelagos of Santorini, Thirassia, and tiny Aspronisi, leaving behind a 360-meter deep caldera for divers to explore. The protruding part of the dormant volcano is Nea Kameni with its’ warm waters makes diving even more pleasant.
From May through to September, diving in Santorini is an amazingly relaxing and exhilarating experience. See the intriguing rock formations, the shipwrecks to dive off, and many unusual species of fish and other marine life.
Snorkeling in these crystal clear waters is equally fun. The snorkeling tours take you to the best spots to enjoy a remarkable array of marine life.
