Did two dives on 6th and 8th September with Theo from Octopus Diving in Skiathos just recently and had a great time on both.
I will echo some of the the other comments in that all the dive preparation and briefings were clear and detailed. These are done aboard a small dive boat both in the harbour and again out at the dive site.
Theo is r very nice approachable guide who went through my log book and certificates thoroughly to gauge dive site suitability and skill level. My partner who doesn't dive noticed how he watched carefully how I put my dive kit together to ensure it way done properly.
Fortunately I was buddied with a rescue diver so we could go out to a wall near the Lighthouse Island near Skopelos. After last checks we all did strides off the back of the boat and Theo took a diver buoy out to warn the small boats above about our presence below.
That dive was superb with amazing visibility to 25m if not more..we went down steadily with Theo keeping an eye on us both at regular intervals and pointing out morays, octopus gruppa and more...There was a shimmering thermocline at 20m and there was a little bit of a kick back in the currents that day but nothing too demanding.
Made a steady accent back to a safety stop at 5m back at the marker buoy and boat above.
Theo helped us both with BCD and weights and Tank removal from the boat whilst we remained in the water before getting back on board for a nice cruise back to port.
For information I took my own dive kit (bar Tank 12ltr 200bar and weights (4kg)) I was in a shortie as water was around 26 degrees at surface going down to 18 under the thermocline.
Did second dive a couple of days later which was equally good and longer...
All in all excellent guide and relaxed stress free dive with some of the best visibilty I have encountered
..Thanks Theo for a great couple of dives ...Cant wait until next time
