Our Dive Centre has been operating since 1987 and is located in the grounds of the Minos Beach hotel, one of Crete's most attractive and luxurious five star bungalow hotel complexes. It is ideal for all divers, with tideless, calm, warm waters, divable all year round. Courtesy of the hotel, a sheltered sandy beach and a large private swimming pool are available, for those wishing to try or take up diving, in the "Discover Dive" sessions. There is a fully-equipped classroom, complete with its own unique mural. A relaxed atmosphere combined with the latest teaching methods makes learning easy and fun. The instructors have up to twenty years diving experience and are proficient in first aid. The diving sites offer something to interest everyone. Sites range from ancient remains, through wrecks, rocky slopes, caverns, walls, reefs and "drop offs". The exceptionally clear water, with its many shades of blue offers visibility averaging over 30 metres. Pelagos is a fully qualified and established diver training centre where learning to dive is made easy and fun by PADI instructors. THE DIVE BOAT Our purpose-built GRP 10m dive boat m/v "POSIDONIA" (with water jet propulsion for max safety), is licensed for 24 divers. Small groups of divers and experienced dive leaders ensure safety and enjoyment for all. The question most divers ask is what will they see on the dives? It is impossible to list everything and would also spoil the surprise element, but here is some of what you may well see: Groupers, Damsel fish, Moray-eels, Trigger fish, Red Snappers, Giant Clams, Octopus, Tube worms, Parrot fish, Red and Grey mullet, Schools of Tuna and Jack fish, Multi-coloured sponges and nudibraches.
