Full of lively sea life, historic artifacts, and visible turquoise waters, Greece has become one of the top diving destinations in Europe. Thousands of visitors flock to Greece for diving vacations every year.
A country made up of islands, bordering three beautiful seas; the Mediterranean, the Aegean, and the Ionian Sea, and teeming with potential, diving in Greece is bound to live up to all your wildest expectations.
Curiously enough, before 2006, diving in Greece was very limited. This is because the Greek government believed the only reason people were interested in diving was to steal ancient artifacts and marine life from the sea.
However, after being deemed to hinder tourism, the EU required Greece to lift its restrictions and the activity has since seen a major rise in profitability and popularity within the country. Now, with the exception of a few sacred/special sites you can dive all over Greece.
Ancient Greece and recent historical events have contributed to the underwater scene in Greece as well as beautiful reefs teeming with life. The Mediterranean is known as one of the best areas to dive in the world and Greece is no exception.
