Where do I even begin? To start here's a little background. I am a Rescue Diver through PADI. I'm a college student that was studying abroad in Germany for the semester and was looking for something to do over mid-semester break. I was on a pretty tight budget. I actually closed my eyes and pointed at a map to see where I could go. My finger landed on Kefalonia, an island in Greece I had no idea existed. I called George at the Diveshop about 2 weeks in advance and booked my flight. Next thing I know, I'm pulling up to the smallest "airport" I've ever seen. I was going to be on the island for 1 day and 2 nights. The day I arrived I headed down to the dive shop to see exactly where it was. For future travelers: It is down in front of the hotel that is next to the tennis courts! I was greeted with some very cautious and friendly kittens that like to hang out around the area :) I met George as he was coming in from his last dive of the day and was instantly greeted with a smile and a positive attitude. We chatted a little bit and I confirmed my dive for the next day and he reassured me we were all set to go. The next morning came around and I was the first one at the shop. George was waiting there with his wife Eva and I was once again greeted with a smile! He informed me that a few others would be joining us on the dive and I have to say, I was glad they came along. The three men who showed up were George's past divers who had turned into lifelong friends. They were a family from England who consisted of a dive instructor, master diver, and rescue diver. Accompanying us was another open water diver who also was from England. After all the introductions, George told us to suit up and we did so. After, we all helped get the equipment and boat loaded. I could tell right away this wasn't going to be a normal dive excursion. We were cracking jokes left and right. I have to be honest, being a college student traveling far away from home (US) it was sure nice not having to be all alone for one of your adventures. Eva was the kindest soul and also came along prepared to take pictures! We headed out to the dive site which took about 10 minutes to reach by boat. On arrival, we were briefed on the dive-site and what areas we would be covering. George made sure everyone had the equipment they needed, that the emergency kit was in an easily accessible place on the boat, and that all divers were prepared for the dive. When we got in, the water was crystal clear. It's definitely a good idea to bring a camera with you, because this is going to be a dive experience you aren't going to want to forget. Our first dive lasted about an hour and when we resurfaced we decompressed we took some time to eat a few snacks and tell some more dive stories. Our next dive consisted of us going into the mouth of a cavern and getting to see all of the sea life that was living in the walls. I saw everything from Amphoras, all the way to jellyfish! Eva also decided to hop in the water and snap some pictures of us inside the cavern!! This was one of the most beautiful dives I've ever experienced. On top of that, the people I was with made it even more memorable. On our way back to shore George gave tons of history on the island. We arrived back at the dock and washed our equipment and called it a day. On my last day on the island, I headed back to the dive shop because I didn't have much to do and wanted to share some of the videos I took of the dive with Eva. After we traded some photos, George and I went outside and actually had a 2-2.5 hour long conversation just talking about life and past diving experiences. Tell me: where else on this planet would the owner of a dive shop come and sit outside with you and talk?? Absolute unforgettable experience. Saying George and Eva are amazing is an understatement. If I could give this dive shop a fair rating it would be a 110% and a 11/10 stars. George and Eva you made me the happiest diver and you can be sure you have made a life-long friend!! Also, you can rest-assured that I will recommend your shop to everyone I know that dives/visits Greece. I look forward to seeing you in the future thank you for being my family away from home :)) TL:DR; -This was an all day two-tank open water dive. It is a good idea to bring some sunscreen, water, and a camera! -The water at the dive sites is warm and is crystal clear -Treat the owners with respect and if you're a parent, make sure you leave your child at home if they are young. The dive-staff is NOT a daycare. -The Diveshop owners were absolutely incredible and knowledgable.

This was a spontaneous trip through our holiday host. George was great and we were taken to Zeus. First time snorkelling for one of us in the party and here begins his underwater journey. We oldies to the underworld had a great time too. Now we need to return to scuba dive. Next visit. Thankyou George & Eva.

I’m PADI dive-master/ IANTD self sufficient twin/side-mount advanced recreational trimix diver. Fourth time with pirate divers club,George and Eva the whole experience is so good all round. My wife completed advanced open water course. I also completed 8 dives, Diaz island, the lobster wall various wrecks from ww2, caverns, caves and I just missed out of the Perseus submarine,inland caverns to explore which I will return to complete. All round a great set up, which is all about giving you a great safe dive experience, no bull and all about the diving. We had a great time with George and Eva and can’t thank them enough it was fantastic!!!! I highly recommend pirate divers club!!!!!

My son and I took a PADI dive course with Pirate Divers. Our instructors George and Dennis were great and ran a relaxed fun course with plenty of encouragement. The Blue Canyon for our open water dives was spectacular and we were well looked after on the boat by Eva. A few beers with the team rounded off a perfect course. Thank you all.
