Diving in Kalymnos

When visiting Kalymnos you should definitely experience scuba diving.

Thanks to the long tradition in diving and in the sponge related activities, the Kalymnians are experts in sea diving and they will gladly share their secrets with you. It is no coincidence that the first state diving school was established on Kalymnos island.

Here, you will find the largest, 12 kilometers long, released coastline area in Greece, in order to practice scuba diving. Although banned across almost the whole country for the protection of archaeological treasures, scuba diving is an activity that you can enjoy on Kalymnos, either under the guidance of a diving centre instructor or by yourself, if you have the proper knowledge and equipment. The underwater environment is really rich, and in addition to a lot of marine species that you will encounter, you are going to find remnants of ancient and most modern shipwrecks.
