What to see

The Mediterranean has marine life that differs from anywhere else on the globe. You can find creatures ranging from tiny anchovies to large animals like the thresher shark, with its impressively long tail. Huge marine life like dolphins and whales sometimes make appearances, though they are less common than out in the open ocean.

See the incredible red and black corals here, unexpected gems in this clear water.

Description

Dive2gether Dive Center is a family-run business owned and managed by two brothers - Paul and Erik.

They have a distinct love for the sea, borne of their early years; Paul and Erik took their first diving course when they were just 12 years old and from that point family holidays centred on diving.

The amazing area of Plakias, a village on the southern coast of the Greek island of Crete, has been chosen to give life to the dream: this is a great place to spend the holiday. 

Dive2gether is focused on several core pillars: environmental conservation, learning, safety, care and sharing fun with loved ones . 

Since 2016, the center became a “Mare-Mundi Field Station” : a centre for marine research and education where recreational divers and snorkelers will be able to learn about the wonders of the aquatic world and its need for protection.

The center proudly boasts a big crew of motivated home grown instructors, a wide selection of materials in many languages a custom built boat, "Philomena", is ready to accommodate divers and non-divers for a comfortable day of boat diving; enjoy a smooth ride with sunroof, high-quality tank-racks, luggage nets, equipment storage, a cabin with toilet and dressing room and a fresh water shower to rinse off after diving.

The "philosophy" of the center  is 2stay and dive together" which starts at the beginning of the day with a warm welcome at the dive center - we'll then spend time packing together with the help of our crew, all the way through our great adventure followed by a return to the center and photo sharing, filling our logbook and planning the next great trip.

Unmissable additional opportunities are offered so that your holiday is more than a simple diving holiday: weekly marine biology presentations, weekly night snorkelling, trip to the waterfalls, weekly BBQ and a lot of fun.

Come as a guest, leave as a friend!
