Diving in Heraklion

The capital city of the island of Crete is another great place to dive on the island. In Heraklion, you will find caves, reefs, shipwrecks, and sponges here which make the underwater world here so interesting to explore. Three “can’t miss” sites to check out in Heraklion are, the wreck Messerschmitt, a World War II German airplane sitting upside down in 25 meters (82 feet) of water. St. George, one of the most popular dive sites with its spectacular wall. And, Amphorae Reef, a perfect site for all level of divers with tons of historical amphorae pieces to explore.
