Superb and professional dive shop. Whether you have zero experience or a are a seasoned diver this is a great place to experience the underwater world of Crete. I certified Open Water and Advanced Diver at this shop and have dived dozens of times with these guys. New equipment. Iakovos runs a great shop, knows these waters like the back of his hand, and most importantly is a great guy who you can trust.

The instructor was very kind, friendly, a really nice guy with a lot of pacient. He provides us a lot of Informations, all the instructions for diving. For us was a very good experience, a sensation that you can’t descrive in words. The center is certifice, that is very important to know (for your safety) : all the equipment are tested and verify ( very good equipment). For us was the first time we do scuba diving, but will sure not be the last one. Great experience, great person, everything was perfect! I really recomand it!!

We had the privilege of meeting Iakovos at Balos Divers when we went for an “Explore Diving” experience in August 2019. Iakovos is a great instructor and a very experienced diver who made sure everyone was safe and happy. I don’t think we could have been in better hands.

Balos Divers is a great place to get your certificate, the personal are really friendly, kind and helpful. My instructor Iakovos was very experienced and patient. He had also good humor and I had so much fun during my training time there. The prices are also very reasonable comparing to other countries. So if you ever travel to Greece and you still dont have license, don’t miss this chance!
