Pelagos Dive Centre - Dive Crete


The variety of the dive sites offer something to interest everyone, ranging from ancient remains, through wrecks, rocky slopes, caverns, walls, reefs and "drop offs". The exceptionally clear water, with its many shades of blue offers visIbility averaging over 30 metres and temperatures between 19°C and 29°C.

Our purpose built 10m dive boat m/v "POSIDONIA" (with water jet propulsion for max safety), is licensed for 24 divers. The departure time for boat dives is every day at 13:00 and depending on demand we run a second dive at 10:00. Small groups of divers and experienced dive leaders ensure safety and enjoyment for all. Most dive sites are near the coast line making it easy for divers of all levels and snorkelers to make the best out of every dive trip.

The question most divers ask is what will they see on the dives? It is impossible to list everything and would also spoil the surprise element, but here is some of the Mediterranean marine life you may well see: Groupers, Damsel fish, Moray-eels, Trigger fish, Red Snappers, Giant Clams, Octopus, Tube worms, Parrot fish, Red and Grey mullet, Schools of Tuna and Jack fish, Multi-coloured sponges and nudibraches.
