Last Tuesday I and my girlfriend did a fantastic dive of 60 min under the supervision of instructor Dimitris. We are not experienced divers (first dive after our OWSD training) but Dimitris explained everything related to our dive calm and clear that gave us confident that everything will go well. Helped us gear up and did the checklist that our equipment was properly assembled. The water was warm, blue, crystal-clear and we saw lot's of fishes underwater including many colourful fishes that for me was the extra sugar in my experience. The location is just a few kilometres away from Athens and easy to reach. An extra advantage is that the shop is next to sea and you don't have to carry your equipment. Whenever in Athens I will definitely add a dive with Dimitris in my list. Fully recommended! Thanks for the dive!

    How to find us

    We are located in a beautiful part of Athens, approximately half an hour from the City Center, by the beach,  in the area of Lagonissi.

     (GPS coordinates: 37 47’ 49.2972”N, 23 52’ 16.3992” E)

    By Athens Metro and Public Bus:

    Take the Athens Metro No 2 (red line) towards Elliniko terminal station.

    Then take the “122 Elliniko-Saronida” Blue Bus line, which stops right outside Athina Diving Center. Nearest stops are  “Galazia Akti” and “Cycladon”. Athina Diving Center is in the middle of the two stops at km 38, next to “Oasis” Beach Bar.

    Orange “KTEL Bus line Athens - Sounio” also stops upon request at Athina Diving Center at the 38km of the Athina-Sounio Coastal road.

    Using your own car

    There are two main routes from the city center: the coastal road which would take about 40 minutes from the city center; or via Attiki Odos, which would take aprox 30 minutes from El.Venizelos airport.

    From the center of Athens, take “Syngrou Avenue” towards the town of Glyfada. After passing Glyfada, head towards Voula, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza. After passing Varkiza, you will see the church of Aghia Marina on the left.  Continue straight through the coastal road and you will find Athina Diving Center about 1km after the traffic lights, on the right, on the beach, after a tavern called “Trehandiri”.
