    I thoroughly enjoyed my first time scuba diving. The instructor (and his wife who greeted me with friendliness and hospitality) was clear in his explanation, patient and helpful as I practiced techniques and pleasant to talk with during the drive to the bay where we dove. I was lucky to be his only student as the other scheduled ones were no shows. They missed out! The bus ride from and returning to Athens was convenient and smooth, even though it took me a bit to figure out. FYI… The KTEL bus station in Athens for this route is across the street from the Nomismatokopio Metro station. The daily and weekend schedules for the bus to Nea Makri (with return schedule) are posted on the window. The fare each way, paid on the bus, was €2.90. Have fun!

    Dimitri is fabulous. Felt safe and well educated knowing what we were doing. As it was mine and my partners first time scuba diving. He made us feel at ease, very welcoming. He took photos and videos which we will cherish forever. This is a must, he’s so nice, what an experience.
