“top class diving centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

Manthos Fanaras and Ray at Doplhin Diving on Nostos/Tzaneria Beach, bus stop no:12 are incredibly good with beginner divers and offer exciting dives for the more experienced. Manthos is superb as a try dive instructor and is quite brilliant at giving even the most nervous first timer( child or adult) an experience to remember forever.

Manthos and Ray run a very efficient diving centre, with good equipment and a comfortable boat, safety is always paramount on their agenda. Their love for the environment and the protection of the diving around Skiathos shine through. This results in a fantastic experience for anyone who wishes to experience or is experienced in the world of diving the beautiful waters of Skiathos.

“The Best diving centre in Skiathos by a long way.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2011

I have been visiting Skiathos for my summer holidays now for many years. Dolphin Diving Centre was the first diving school on Skiathos and I have been using the school for the last 8 years. I highly recommend this Diving School as the only really Professional School on the Island. The team led by Matthew are all brilliant and totally enhance your holiday experience; everything about this diving experience is first class. Equipment is new and well maintained, instructors are friendly, intelligent and very helpful and the boat is spacious and extremely well looked after and easily the best diving boat on the Island.
I have dived around eight different sights now which all offer something different: Wreck dives, Long reefs, walls, large caves, deep dives, lobsters, Octopus, lots of fish and the odd Greek treasure.
I have only high praise for Dolphin Diving Centre and highly recommend it to any enthusiastic diver of any level. I am already looking forward to returning next year. An 11/10 Holiday experience.

“Top Class Dive Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2011

3 years i've ben going to Skiathos, and 3 years I've used the Dolphin diving centre.
I've done around 25 dives in total with Manthos and his team.
Guess what, I shall also be going back again next summer.
Over the years, I think we are now regarded as friends.
Manthos is a really good Dive Instructor, he his really thorough and knows his stuff.
His knowledge of the surrounding area, his dive sites and currents is oustanding.
His dive boat in tip top condition (no shoes please)

Dives are usually twice per day, the first one leaves around 9am, the second one (after a return to shore) leaves around 12pm.
The wreck and night dives are definately worth a look as well.

My youngest daughter did a try dive with them, and is now considering to study for her own Padi certification.

To sum up, I will definately be back. 11 out of 10.
