It was my first dive after really long break. The crew was really nice, they helped me with everything and reminded me all basics. Divemaster made me feel really safe and showed us many interesting things under the water, including 3000 years old ceramics and shellfish.

What an incredible experience. The Amfora centre is a great place for beginners diving. We had one on one instruction and felt very safe and at ease. Very modern equipment and friendly staff. £45pp for the hour 'course' including certification and underwater camera. Taxis were reasonable from Ohrid centre and access to the Bay of Bones museum is included which... More

We did a couple of fun dives with Jovan. We had emailed before our trip and he was able to give us lots of useful information that reassured me that Diving Center Amfora was a reputable diving company. As we only did two dives they were 40 Euros each including all kit hire. If you do more dives or are... More

I had a fantastic time at bay of bones / amfora dive center. I had two amazing dives with one of the DM. The Center was pretty clean, had good equipment and the prizes for the diving are affordable. If you are looking for a good dive center- this is your first choice!

Pro - Diving in an ancient lake and seeing "antiquity" underwater makes you feel like an acquaitic Indiana Jones. modern and new equipment. Owner/Master Diver has interesting background as a Macedonian frogman. Easy to add on Bay of Bones museum or hang at one of the wild beaches nearby. Con - it has been a year since our last dive,...

We were really beginners to this. Me, my wife and our youngest of 15 but tried it anyway and we don't regret a second of it. It is a small place beautifully located by the bay of bones and not overrun or crowded. We were the only ones there and got a thorough introduction on land as to what diving... More

Excellent diving school where my wife discovered this activity for the first time inspite of the fact that she's frightened of the seabed and the most charming is the exploration under the bay of bones museum

Yesterday my wife and I went diving for the first time in our lives. Since we didn't know what too expect we booked just one dive (one hour). The Diving Center Amfora has a good equipment which we could use for our dive. There was an excellent English explanation of the gear and how it works. After that we went... More
