Sea Diving in Pelion

The fascinating world of the sea bottom is different from man’s natural environment. However, you can get to know it through an exciting -still safe- activity: sea-diving! It is a really unique experience, which will carry you into a fascinating world of colourful pictures. It is a sport that will fill you with enthusiasm and teach you a lot to do with the environment and our behaviour towards it. There are many sea-diving fans who come to Pelion for the unique deep sea sights, due to the many shipwrecks as well as to the rich marine life that will fascinate even the most demanding divers. Pelion has 3 schools through which you can either just go diving or get a higher sea-diving certificate. Most deep sea sightseeing is found in the Pagassitikos Bay, in the north Evoiko Bay as well as the Aegean. So, if you are anxious to find out what is hidden under the sea, you can contact one of the following diving schools:
