ATHENS

4 DAYS / 6 BOAT DIVES IN ATHENS FROM 510€

Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC (the “Golden Age of Pericles”) – the culmination of Athens’ long, fascinating history – the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments – a rare historical palimpsest. In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm.

DAY 1

Two morning dives at Patroklos Island. The first dive site is the wreck of Kyra Leni and the second the magnificent, full of life Patroklos wall. The cargo Ship Kyra Leni sunk in 1978 very close to Patroklos Island. This wreck is a favorite dive site for many divers of Athens, since the shallow depth and the relatively intact bow of the ship allowing a relaxing wreck dive.

DAY 2

Two morning dives at Fleves Island. First dive at the Panagi wreck and the second at the Seal Cavern. The cargo Ship Panagi sank in June 1984, crashing into the rocks of the “Fleves” island. A damage to the steering wheel and very strong winds were the reasons for this accident. Hopefully there were no casualties.
At the Cavern, seals are seen some periods of the year. A beautiful Cavern with lots of underwater fauna & flora.
