I'm so glad I dived with Trident rather than the highly marketed Waterhoppers dive trip!

For one, Trident operates a MUCH smaller boat... which means that they are able to take smaller groups out. There must have been about 40-50 people on the Waterhoppers boat at the end of September... the end of peak season, so I can only imagine the volume if people being dropped into the limited dive sites.

They also did not let us brace the very rough sea on the day we were heading out - not a problem for me, but I am sure appreciated by anyone who suffers from sea sickness... some of the other boats went out, as how would they transport the mass of passengers otherwise.

Pricewise it was reasonable. Equipment was worn, but absolutely useable - although someone might think of investing in better fins, the ones they have are too short and far too flexible.

As a qualified diver, the actual diving is very poor... although the cave diving at Kalithea was pretty good. Water temp and visibility were Good, and the actual location of Kalithea is superb... got a couple of hours tanning done whilst we were there, so no need for a separate day trip.

All in all, this is the dive outfit you should choose, they care about their clients, rather than treat you like a sausage factory, which is so important for first time divers.

I have been diving with Trident for many years. They offer great value for money and the days on the boat to Kalithea are always a lot of fun. It is a smaller boat than most school offer which makes it more personal and special. The owner George and his excellent staff go the extra mile for the beginning & qualified divers. For the qualified divers they also offer day trips to Ladiko Bay. I have done my deep dive specialty this year and enjoyed these dives a lot. Many thanks for the great holiday. See you next year!

Bad experience guys
We did a deal and paid another thing
Very bad photoes and videos and costs you like 15€ at the beginning it was free . Every person on the ferry pay different than the other not clear at all and they say free pick up and drop off all words they pick you in the morning with a smile and leave you at the harbour and says there is a bus take it.
Very disappointed. Waterhooppers 2 years ago was really amazing even if you pay a little bit more it's worth it .

It is an unique experience, suitable even for absolute beginners and for not-so-extreme people.
I only regret I didn't dive for the second time - I recommend you do both dives in a day, also do some snorkeling around beautiful Kallithea.
The underwater world is literally breathtaking, cal, like you are in space and in peace with the planet. The fish will approach you without fear and have fascinating colors. You could cry from the beauty (but don't, it will get in your mask).
The instructors will make sure you enjoy your time and that you do it safely, and also are a lot of fun.
It was a lovely time, don't hesitate and dive in! Life is short but SO beautiful
