Very professional team
Sep 2021
very professional, very good experience. With Frank for 2 days and were really excellent. He took care of everybody, help people underwater and give notes on the boat after the dives. Really great instructor. We felt welcomed and cared a lot. Elephant Cave was absolutely amazing. Frank also took pictures for everybody. And the Wreck is also something special.

Great diving center
Sep 2021
Me and my partner did the PADI open water course with Omega divers and we had a lovely time. The instructors were so friendly and nice, would definetely recommend this place if you are new to scuba diving.
Very well organised center. You need about 3 days to complete the course with one day of pool session ( be aware that the pool is cold ....you just have to push through it) and 2 days with 2 dives each. The diving site was also nice and secluded.
Very happy with the experience! A big thanks to Freya who had so much patience with me and let me tell you I was freaking out alot :)

Wasn't really Scube Dive for beginnners . . .

Booked two boat-dive days from the office in Almyrida. Really good experiences on both. Laurence & Frank were instructors on both days and were both excellent - felt totally safe. They set up equipment and changed tanks between dives. Lunch was great too.

Did the Elephant Cave and the Wreck on two seperate dives. Beautiful clear water on both dives and the Cave is something else !! Would defo recommed and will savour the photos.

Must do!
Absolutely amazing experience! Scuba diving for brginners was the best part of my stay in Crete! Omega divers are real professionalists, my instructor had more than 20 years experience and made me feel calm all the time. Detailed instructions, answer of all questions and trying main actions firstly in shallow waters was all I needed to go into the deep. I saw some mesmorising fish and other 'creatures'. Transportation from and to Chania is also covered. DEFINITELY WORTH IT!

stay far away from this diving center
Aug 2020
First of all, the owner (Manos) is the rudest person we have ever met. Since we could understand some greek, we were able to figure out how rude he was with all of the employees.

Moreover, the wetsuits are in a terrible condition. Full of holes and really really old. For sure they do not keep you warm.

Furthermore, we forgot what safety means... The boat is really small and we were at least 13 people on the boat, not to mention that nobody was wearing a mask and no proper distance between the divers.

The boat also, broke down and an SPG exploded!!!

Of course there is no refund and we were also asked to pay by cash (greek way of getting away with taxes) .

To sum up, this is really a pity because the instructors were really good and helpful with everything.

Dear Tomas, Obviously, you are completely confused because you review us on the Discover Scuba Diving program, which is a shore diving program, while in your review you refer to a boat dive program. In that context, we can't recall who you are. Although we feel sad about your alleged bad experience with us, you are providing false and misleading information, and for this reason, we need to set things straight. None of our diving suits are torn. Our equipment is always checked daily and is up to date. May I remind you that our diving center, which is a five-star resort, is also a retail diving store, so it is extremely easy for us to replace used, torn, or faulty items. We may politely ask our customers if they prefer to pay in cash when they book or buy something from the diving store, but we always provide a legal tax receipt to all payments, and we accept credit cards when it is convenient for them. Our company is based on solid ground and not familiar with 'the Greek way of getting away with taxes'. Cash payments primarily allow us to avoid the currency exchange cost. We always provide facemasks to our participants as they enter the minivan should if they do not have their own, to ensure their safety. The maximum capacity of each of our boats is 8 divers guided by two PADI instructors, so there is no reason to have more divers in one boat since we have another boat for that exact reason. Regarding minor problems with equipment during the diving programs they rarely ever occur but there is such a possibility, as in all diving centers around the world. As a well organized diving center, we always have spare equipment onboard in all our programs and we solve any possible problems on sight. Finally, our Manager Manos is a natural loudspeaker and is not rude to our staff, which corporates with the company for many years. We understand that your opinion on him is based on your poor Greek and on a brief acquaintance, so it is overly judgemental and unfair, like your entire opinion of our center and the Greeks, and honestly, goes way beyond from just being rude. What is clear to us, and probably to anyone who reads it, is that your review was written based on your obvious dislike for our manager and surely because you were not refunded, since obviously there was no reason to. Thankfully we have over 300 positive reviews that prove the efficacy of our team, and the true quality of our equipment and services.
