The first is Dive Med College a PADI 5 Star Gold Palm Instructor Development Center and the second is Waterhoppers, a PADI 5 Star Center. There is an abundance of marine life on offer for those looking to scuba dive in Rhodes although you need to have a proper authorisation to dive and be accompanied by a recognised diving instructor. Scuba diving in Rhodes is also only permitted in certain areas due to the large number of antiquities hidden in the waters around the island.
