Diving in Greece

Greece is best known for its ancient Greek civilization that is considered the cradle of Western civilization. The ancient Greeks are credited with being the originators of western democracy, philosophy, literature, science and mathematics, and more. They even invented the Olympic games. Today Greece is a modern country with the largest economy in the Balkans and the 57th largest in the world.

A country with 6,000 islands and just 227 inhabited, not to mention the 11th largest coastline in all the world, Greece is lapped by the Mediterranean, Ionian, Aegean, and Cretan Seas. So it is safe to say it makes for an excellent diving location, one where you can explore waters with incredible visibility, see a whole variety of marine life and discover haunting wrecks. Then there are the caves and amazing rock formations, ready for adventurous and more advanced divers to explore. Add in a rich ancient culture, beautiful scenery and a great climate and you have all the ingredients for a fascinating dive destination.
