Rhodes: Scuba Diving Activity Holiday

(Ro-dos in Greek)

The island's crystal clear seas provide the perfect backdrop for scuba diving holidays in Rhodes. There are many places where beginners can learn to scuba dive in Rhodes as well as dive sites suitable for those who are more advanced. Until very recently, the only licensed place to scuba dive on the island was the bay of Kallithea, a tranquil beach with a network of underwater caves and reefs just waiting to be explored. Those on scuba diving holidays in Rhodes can also sometimes spot the usually shy octopus which breed there from May to September. Waterhoppers Diving School was established in 1978 and offers courses for beginners, advanced scuba divers and even instructors.

The Dive Med College in Mandraki Harbour, Rhodes town, is also worth contacting for those on scuba diving holidays in Rhodes. Be warned, however, those on Rhodes scuba diving holidays should not remove anything from the sea-bed or take any objects to the surface as a souvenir. The authorities are extremely strict about avoiding this kind of activity and there are severe controls to avoid any infringement.
