He had an amazing time and said he received excellent training and it was well organised and safe with good quality equipment. They spent a lot of... More

Where to begin? We contacted a gentleman named Lucky before we travelled to Elounda to arrange starting a course (the three day introduction to Scuba). After numerous emails we decided to upgrade to the full open water diver package before we travelled. The patience, attitude and general niceness of the gentleman as we tried to arrange the trip was more... More

I did 12 dives with Blue Dolphin and found them very friendly and professional. They did not hurry me when assembling my gear or pressure me to go deeper than I wanted to. They picked me up from my hotel and invited me to social events such as a diver's meal. I would recommend this dive centre and return myself... More

We recently stayed at the Aquilla Elounda Village and found Blue Dolphin conveniently located on site. All the equipment is available to hire. After doing our second dive, we enjoyed it so much we signed up for our PADI advanced open water course - which was great fun (and reasonably priced). There is a good variety of different dive sites.... More

This was my first scuba dive. For me this is a must do experience for anyone who can and is interested. The people at Blue Dolphin were thoroughly professional and very friendly and I would recommend them. Ko

We visited Elounda in May 2016, choosing our hotel based on the Blue Dolphin dive centre being situated within the grounds. Lucky and Dajana were v welcoming with both speaking perfect English amongst other languages. We liked their relaxed approach whilst remaining very safety conscious before and during our dives. Their enthusiasm for diving is really infectious and we loved... More

Did five dives with Mark and one with Dijana (I think that's how to spell her name!), and enjoyed them all. They took pains to get us to different dive sites each time, and we managed good long dives each time, always surfacing with 50 bar in the tank just like PADI say we should. The locals are, unfortunately, demon... More
