On very short notice, i was able to dive with Balos Divers. I’m a quite experienced diver who has been diving with dozens of dive centers all over the world. If you are looking for a experienced guide or teacher: Iakovos is definitely your man in the area. He is super knowledgeable, safety is veryvery important to him. The equipment you can rent is top notch, the prices are reasonable. And – he is also over all a very great guy! Thank you Iakovos for an amazing experience in Kissamos. And hug your kids from me, they’re precious 🙂

I had two dives with Yakovos (I believe this is the right way to spell your name?!) at the beginning of this week. It’s been a few years since my last dive, and he gave me a short but to the point refresher with everything I needed to know. In the water, he also gave me my pace and time to warm up and explore what ever I wanted. For me diving is firstly related to safety and afterwards all the rest, It felt like Yakovos had the same approach which gave me a safe and good feeling. Additionally, he was very kind to supply my girlfriend with free equipment and tips for snorkeling in the area while we were diving! The only thing I would want next time is maybe going to some more interesting and cave areas, something which was not possible because of the specific tide/light conditions we had. I hope next time to see some more of the beautiful bay near Balos. Highly recommended ! Very professional and very safe

Only to recommend. It was the first scuba diving experience for me. Everything was explained very well and understandable. The equipment is new and very well maintained. Altogether we felt very safe. Lakovos is a very friendly and open-minded person with whom you can have great conversations. I can recommend it to anyone who wants to create an extraordinary memory.

Had a very nice dive with Iakovos and Thanasis. The equipment was very well maintained, they were very professional and made us feel safe and enjoy our dives. They were very keen to discuss and share their knowledge, and ensure you know everything you need / have any questions answered. Our group did a dive for certified divers and a discovery one for the new people in the group, and everyone enjoyed it a lot. More over, Iakovos was very accomodating and flexible on arranging our dive, suggesting a specific “sheltered” site (due to the high winds) that was on the road to our destination
