ACTIVITIES IN SKOPELOS

Scuba Diving in Skopelos

Discover a fascinating underwater world

 

The seabed of the Sporades hides incomparable beauty: natural reefs, uninhabited rocky islets, underwater caves, and wondrous ancient shipwrecks. Here is the National Marine Park of Alonissos Northern Sporades, the first marine park in Greece and the largest protected marine area in Europe. It is part of the Natura 2000, the European network of protected areas, and several of its zones are free for diving, swimming, wildlife watching, and amateur photography. This unspoiled area of pristine beauty hosts the first Submarine Archaeological Museum of Greece, where visitors can admire the shipwreck of the island of Peristera, the oldest visitable shipwreck in the world.

“Spyrou Skopelos Experience” works together with the Diving Center of Skopelos, offering its guests the opportunity to make their first dives and discover the magical underwater world of Skopelos and the Sporades. With a little luck, you might have the opportunity to see up close the Mediterranean seal Monachus Monachus, whose largest population in the world lives and reproduces in this area.

Skopelos Diving Center

 

Skopelos Diving Center was created by young people with a deep love for both the island and scuba diving. It is certified by PADI, the world’s largest scuba training organization, and has one base in Panormos on the southern side of the island and a second base on the northern side, in the port of Skopelos. With two speedboats and a professional 4×4, it organizes diving excursions by sea or land, diving training courses, snorkeling tours, and boat trips. All diving activities are supervised by experienced professional divers.
