ScubaDivingVacation.netDiving Resorts & Hotels In Rhodes, Greece

Rhodes is an island located off the mainland coast of Greece known mostly for its very long history and unique culture. The island is also known for something else in recent times and that is scuba diving. With its Mediterranean climate of hot summers and mild winters, spectacular ruins and abundant sea life, some of the best scuba diving vacations in all of Europe, and maybe even in the world, can be spent there. The Bay of Kalithea is a great place to dive for scuba divers who wish to explore underwater caves and like to view unique rock features. Octopus, cuttlefish and sea horses are frequent visitors to the area. At Anthony Quinn Bay, advanced divers drop 100 feet (30 meters) to experience the Cave of the Seal where ancient amphora pottery is scattered about the area. The dive site at Plimiri, with numerous tuna, dogfish and barracuda, offers a diving experience not seen by many. The dive destination near Kamiros is a wreck dive in fairly shallow waters; the location is particularly great for first-timers and inexperienced divers and a great place to take underwater pictures.

Many companies on Rhodes, just like everywhere in Greece, offer excursions to scuba divers who prefer to have a trained guide with them. Because many of the dives in Rhodes are difficult, there are companies that offer courses for divers of all skill levels in order to ensure they have a safe dive every time. The Waterhoppers is a diving school that offers such courses and dive trips to various sites including Kalithea, Ladiko, Kolympia, Lindos, Pefkos and Plimiri. H20 Diving Center is a fairly new and modern dive center that offers dives to various wrecks and caverns, and also offers a variety of night dives. At Trident Diving School, there is a dive that suits the needs of any diver whether one is a beginner or an expert. Sites such as Lindos and Falaraki give divers the chance to see various rock formations, caverns and many species of marine life. Dive Med College at Mandraki Harbor also offers courses and various tours to popular scuba diving sites in Rhodes.

People taking delight in scuba diving vacations in Rhodes can expect to see many interesting sights including Mediterranean sponges, soft coral, lush sea vegetation, tuna, seals, shrimp, dolphins and even the wreck of a cargo ship that sank in 1981. For people who cannot or do not want to scuba dive but would like to see the same things that divers see, snorkeling is a very popular activity in the area with many companies offering services. There are also several companies offering glass-bottom boat tours to various areas where one can see almost to the bottom without even touching the water.
