They were very helpful to accommodate us in short notice. Professionally handled introduction of my daughter to scuba diving. We spent quite great time under water, they were easy going and friendly. I recommend this place to everyone!

I wanted to try scuba diving for a long time and the circumstances were more than ideal in Kerveli Dive Center. Highly professional, very facilitating, attentive and responsive, the educators made the experience a very enjoyable one and it sparked my interest about scuba diving. Not to mention the very practical set-up of the facilities, the well-kept equipment and of course the magical surroundings of Kerveli in such a gem of an island that Samos is. At the end of the dive, a surprise awaits!
Highly recommended

Tasos, Mika and Tony were very reassuring! The spot is easily accessible, with amazing blue waters and plenty of amenities in the nearby hotel.

The diving team, took care of us (we were 5), making sure every part of the process is explained.

We enjoyed diving with them, and looking forward to more dives with this diving team.

A definite must, during your vacation in Samos - there is a whole world under the water waiting for you to explore it!

We will definitely revisit!

As the owner of Forra Dive Resort &Liveaboard on Koh Lipe, Thailand, and a dive instructor in the diving industry for 25 years, I highly recommend the place. It is a combo of friendly, relaxed atmosphere, family owned hotel that makes you feel welcomed. The operation is very professional, with good equipment, great staff and the typical rubber boat of the med. The diving is the big blue like, with beautiful topography, some caves, deep pinnacles and a deep fishing boat wreck.
Not much fish like expected in the Med, but a beautifull blue colour in the water and some great limestone cliffs when surfacing...

Apart from that, Samos has a lot to offer, great landscapes, beautifull mountains, amazing walks, good food and nice people.

In the second half of September 2019 I did altogether 14 dives with Mika and Tassos at the Kerveli Dive Center, one security recap dive, 3 educational deep dives and 10 fun dives. At all times I felt safe and well taken care of and I enjoyed the dives.
From the base it took never more than 15 minutes by boat to get to the dive spot and 2 dives were done before 2PM, so that there was enough time for family life. The group of guest divers was never larger than 6 and Mika and Tassos split the group into comparable experience levels if needed.
The educational instructions for the SSI Deep Dive Speciality were crisp and clear and Tassos' experience showed without any doubt.
The dive spots provided enough variety to not get boring, water temperature was between 23 at the surface and 19 at deeper levels, visibility around 25m.
My thanks to Mika and Tassos, I had a great time with the two of you and I hope to be back soon!

I stayed the 2 weeks at the very nice Kerveli Village Hotel, so that I could walk straight from the breakfast table to the dive center in 2 minutes, very convenient :)

stayed in the KERVELI VILLAGE HOTEL for 10 days in july. its a very nice hotel located in a quiet and beautiful spot on samos.the hotel has an in house diving centre and i had a scuba try dive as i had never breathed underwater before. everything was easygoing and very relaxed. Tassos & Mika at the dive centre felt like old friends, so i decided to go for an Open Water Diver certification! Tassos was my instructor & within 5 days i got certified!. Tassos was very meticulous , safety oriented and easy going at the same time! i feel confident that i have received a very solid certification (SSI). i even managed to participate in 2 days of boat diving, a truly magical experience. i fully recommend KERVELI DIVING CENTRE,especially if you want to combine this wonderful hobby of diving with relaxation in a really nice hotel on a wonderful island. i will definitely be back next summer.

I went diving with my 14 year old son who had never tried diving before. I have some experience diving, but so many years ago that I really needed to take is slow. The crew at Kerveli was amazing!! First of all, they take safety very seriusly, and I not once was I nervous about leaving my son's safety in their hands! The first-time-dive course started with easy to understand step-by-step verbal instructions, and then some underwater exercises close to shore to ease us into the feeling of beeing underwater. They were very patient and we could do everything at "our own pace" :-) At the end we had a wonderful 30-40 min. "proper dive" with the crew right at our sides the whole time. They took lots of pictures, and I got them all sent to my email within a couple of hours. This was a really, really amazing experience, and I recommend it to all!! :-)

I spent a week at the Kerveli Village Hotel. I had never dived on Samos before and was not sure what to expect. I chose the hotel, because it is one of the relatively few in Greece with an in-house diving center and because prices were very reasonable for the Greek average. The hotel is situated in a very quiet and beautiful area to the east of Samos, on a hill overlooking the bay. A wonderful place with charming staff and nice Greek food. The dive shop was another highlight. Very friendly and professional with an excellent program of daily dive trips. They execute double dives by boat to the best spots around the island, that are mostly located in the east. Transfers to the spots with the very fast dive boat were quick and the dives were a lot of fun in a relaxed atmosphere. Visibility was very good and I never encountered currents on the 4 days I went diving. The spots were diverse and the dive team very professional and safety oriented. They take a maximum of 6 divers on the boat, which is a joy if you think of mass diving in the Red Sea. All in all a perfect combination of attractive diving and relaxing in a wonderful hotel. And my accompanying gf, who does not dive, had a great time too. I will definitely be back.
