Scuba Diver Course, Koropi Athens
/ Attica Region, Greece, Koropi

Recreational scuba diving is the name given to the use underwater breathing apparatus (tank – BCD – breathing regulator) – in fact, “scuba” is an acronym for “self-contained underwater breathing apparatus”!

There are many international diving organisations, but the most well known and the one that trains the most divers is PADI.

If you wish to become a certified diver, but you don’t have a lot of spare time, then the PADI Scuba Diver course is your best option. This certification requires less time and covers a portion of the Open Water Diver course.

Prerequisites:

  • You are in good general health.

However, it should be noted that anyone can dive regardless of their physical condition (within reason) because diving is more about hovering in the water than it is about swimming.

You will be asked to complete and sign a medical questionnaire and, if necessary, you will be asked to provide a medical certificate.

What the course entails:

  • In the theoretical part of the course you will learn about diving equipment (suits, tanks, breathing regulators, etc.), the physical laws governing the sea, elementary medical issues, planning dives, etc.
  • The practical part of the course covers a wide range of simple diving skills in which you will learn, for example, how we move and breathe underwater to how we remove water from our masks without having to head to the surface.

Course duration:

  • The theory part takes about 4 hours and is completed in 2 days (the theory is conducted alongside the actual dives).
  • The practical lessons consist of 5 dives (from an initial depth of 1.5 m/4 ft up to the maximum (for OPEN WATER) of 12 m/39 ft).

The dives take place over 3 days (2 dives a day) and usually require a weekend, but the program can be configured according to your needs…

With the PADI SCUBA DIVER course you can dive to 12 m/39 ft, but you must always be accompanied by a Divemaster or Instructor. In addition, you can always continue and complete the full Open Water Diver course later on.

Canyoning Enipeas Ι – Olympus, Pieria
/ Greece, Macedonia Region, Pieria

The Enipeas gorge has everything you would like to see and experience especially if you love nature and adventure, combining river trekking and canyoning! It is located on the eastern slopes of Mount Olympus in the area of Prionia at 1000m altitude, it is 6km in length and divided into three parts. Alongside the Enipeas gorge passes the most famous international trail E4.

We leave the cars at the monastery of St. Dionysius and after 10 minutes of hiking the trail we are at an altitude of 790m into the Enipeas gorge.

This Enipeas section is of moderate difficulty level and accessible even to young people aged 13 and over. It is generally open with lush vegetation and crystal clear waters the summer temperature of which does not exceed 5°C, forming natural pools and waterfalls.

In the middle of the route, the passage narrows and after downhilling for four hours, passing by beautiful waterslides, diving from a height into the vathres (small lakes) with crystal waters and 2 rappels of 12m and 15m, we return to our cars at an altitude of 670m (Altitude difference 120m) through the E4 trail after short hiking for about 1 hour.

The best time to visit the canyon is from June to August.

Open Water Dive Course, Koropi Athens
/ Attica Region, Greece, Koropi

Recreational scuba diving is the name given to the use underwater breathing apparatus (tank – BCD – breathing regulator) – in fact, “scuba” is an acronym for “self-contained underwater breathing apparatus”!
 There are many international diving organizations, but the most well known and the one that trains the most divers is PADI.

Prerequisites:

  • You are in good general health.

However, it should be noted that anyone can dive regardless of their physical condition (within reason) because diving is more about hovering in the water than it is about swimming.
You will be asked to complete and sign a medical questionnaire and, if necessary, you will be asked to provide a medical certificate.

What the course entails:

  • In the theoretical part of the course you will learn about diving equipment (suits, tanks, breathing regulators, etc.), the physical laws governing the sea, elementary medical issues, planning dives, etc.
  • The practical part of the course covers a wide range of simple diving skills in which you will learn, for example, how we move and breathe underwater to how we remove water from our masks without having to head to the surface.

Course duration:

  • The theory part takes about 7 hours and is completed in 2–3 days (the theory is conducted alongside the actual dives).
  • The practical lessons consist of 9 dives (from an initial depth of 1.5 m/4 ft up to the maximum (for OPEN WATER) of 18 m/59 ft).

The dives take place over 5 days (2 dives a day) and usually require 2 weekends, but the program can be configured according to your needs.

PADI Open water Diver Course 380€ / per person

Skydiving College Students or Military ID Tandem jump from 14.000 ft, Kastro
/ Greece, Kastro, Kopaida Airport

Description: The AFF training method is worldwide accepted and similar in each country. Our basic AFF course consists of 7 AFF Level jumps from 14000ft (4200m) altitude.
Each AFF level jump holds a target learning objective for which you will be prepared on the ground prior to the jump.

The goal has to be fulfilled in order to pass to the next AFF level jump. The instructor’s camera will record you in the air giving good feedback analysis after the jump. Each individual acts differently in the air and even though most students pass each AFF Level with only one jump, there might be a moment during the course when a repeating of one level jump might be required. In general, due to the video feedback and the thorough practice on the ground, the goals are simple and clear in performance.
