The long coastline provides a lot of interesting places where you can be engaged in this water sport. The reefs and caves, for which Crete has become famous, are the most interesting to explore. Diving provides an opportunity to see the underwater world at a distance of 40 meters deep. During the diving you can see the beauty of the underwater world, meet the exotic inhabitants of the sea, get acquainted with the variety of the plant world.
Another attractive feature that makes diving in Crete popular is the fact that there are many shipwrecks near the island that were defeated during the battles near Crete.

It is enough to undergo instruction and wear special equipment. Accompanied by a qualified instructor, the beginners sink under water to a depth of 5-6 meters, where they can not only study the underwater kingdom, but also take stunning photos.
