The Greeks have long had an intimate relationship with the sea and it continues today. With more than 240 inhabited islands and a significant coastline, you’ll find a wide variety of diving that includes wall, wreck, cavern and reef.

Greece Sea Life
The Aegean and Ionian Seas have a wonderful collection of nudibranchs, invertebrates, crabs, shrimp, eels, seahorses and other easily overlooked critters. If you’re bent on seeing the big stuff, there’s a good chance you can get your fix off Galaxidi on the deep Gulf of Corinth where dolphin and sea turtles are seen. Plus, reef sharks come here to breed and give birth, so keep an eye out for pregnant mothers. Night diving is particularly interesting because that’s when cuttlefish, conger eels and octopus venture out of their daytime lairs.
How to Get There
Greece is accessible by land, sea, or air. Athens International Airport is the main international air hub. Alternatively, take the train for a memorable ride, or arrive via ship. Getting around Greece is just as simple. Taxis and public transportation can take you wherever you need to go.
