I visited the Blue Dolphin, which is located in the grounds of the Hotel Aquila, as my nearest dive facility at the Hotel Elounda Beach, was charging double the advertised rate due to the hotels facilities. However, I was greeted with warmth by Louis and the team and found that their rates were as advertised and extremely reasonable. The dive... More

The day capped off by Liz who took loads of underwater pics for only 10 euros ! Our whole family were also invited... More

Lucky, Pierre and Anna at The Blue Dolphin dive centre were friendly and great to dive with. The equipment was excellent and there is plenty to see...If you want to dive in Crete look no further!

We did our first scuba dive with Lucky and Pierre at the Blue Dolphin and really enjoyed it. Lucky is a patient and thorough teacher and looked after us all the way. Great experience!

We were staying at the Aquila so this dive centre was perfectly placed for us. Good service and enjoyable dives. They offered the opportunity for my husband to complete his advance night diver training in isolation to the main course to allow him to enjoy a night dive. Well worth it as the octopus and squid are a great sight!... More

My children, aged 9 and 12, earned their PADI Bubblemaker certificate with Pierre at Blue Dolphin. They were able to learn in the secluded safe cove of the hotel. This meant that they could learn the necessary skills in a very interesting and stimulating environment - as the cove was full of fish for them to look at. It was... More

Very clean waters and fish to see, the diving personnel is nice, it looked a little bit tired with us, probably because of the end of the high season. This center serves different hotels and organizes also pick ups with a bus. Only negative aspect: some boat dives turned out to be dives from the beach, because of the lack... More

The centre is part of the Elounda Village Hotel and we chose the hotel for this reason. The Dive Centre is run by Lucky assisted by Diana and Pierre, all great people.
