Great diving experience with Waterhoppers in Pefkos. They came to our hotel pool so we could all try out the scuba kit, then we booked for an afternoon dive. They provided transport to and from our hotel. The team are very professional and for every 6 divers there were 5 instructors in the sea with you keeping a close eye on everyone and helping out when needed. After the safety briefing, they took us out on two dives, one in a few metres of water so we could get our confidence, then after a short break, a second dive in deeper water. They take photos and videos of your dive which you can buy for around 20 Euros. The terrain varies from sandy to rocky and we saw quite a few fish. Kids from 11 years up can dive.
Super friendly british guys! they take care of everything, are keen you understand every word they say and look after you above and under the sea! the pictures are sweet and it definitely was a cool experience 🙂 clear recommendation, worth the money! The best scuba diving in Rhodes island!
