After considerable experience in the Egyptian Red Sea , it's a great honor to open a First Dive Center on Sifnos Island in Greece. According to the world-class magazine “National Geographic”, Sifnos is one of the ten most charming and exotic islands, included within the list of destinations such as the Bahamas, Seychelles, French Polynesia, the Netherlands Antilles, etc.

Great diving experience in laid back atmosphere. Waters are calm with excellent visibility, no currents. Teaching staff is 5*, sympathetic and nothing but smiles.

The team took in charge my daughter in law for a diving batism. She did it with all the safety needed, abd was enchanted by it.

Sifnos diving centre is run by Christina and John and they are both very nice people who are passionate about diving. I only did a dive since we stayed for a few days but really enjoyed it. That diving was the best part of our stay in Sifnos and definitely memorable.

if you thought Sifnos was pretty, wait until you see it from below the waves. John and Christina make the learning fun and then you set off for your training. That's where it becomes fabulous. The location is also stunning, so it's a no brainier really.

I decided to take my PADI Open Water certificate while at Sifnos Diving Center, as I felt the small centre gave me the level of attention and learning I needed. John and Christina are passionate divers (who I suspect would prefer to spend all their time in the sea if possible) who know a lot about the local waters and... More

The staff is nice, the material ok, but the dives are not worth it. No more fish, the dive was boring and we were disappointed. I would not recommend spending the money.

It is my second year having the pleasure to experience the professionalism of this diving center. No wonder it is a 5 star from PADI. The instructors helpful and knowledgeable. Best experience ever. I was surprised to read the hideous critic from a person titled Hideous, which I know that was not a customer. It is shameful to disorient the... More

I went for two dives and they were both fantastic. The staff is really good, funny and expert. The gear is high quality and they have high standards. At the same time it's easy going and a lot of fun. Pricing is more than reasonable. We also had a fun debriefing with a lot of pictures that they made during... More
