Dive Center


  • PADI Dive Center on Kea Island, Greece
  • Calm, clear waters ideal for PADI courses. Excellent visibility, safe water, and junior courses available for divers 10 years+
  • Huge variety for experienced divers including wall, wreck and  reef dives
  • Dive the awesome Patris wreck. Among the best wreck dives in the Mediterranean, this famous 19th century paddle wheeled steamer lies at a depth between 28-40 meters
  • Small group sizes often with only two divers per guide and a maximum ratio of 4:1
  • Perfect Tec diving setting with lots of deep dive sites to explore!


Keadivers is a PADI Dive Center located on Kea island, part of the Cyclades complex of islands, just one hour by ferry trip from Athens mainland area.

This is a great destination for beginners as well as for experienced or even Tec divers. The region's warm, clear waters are ideal for teaching PADI courses. Certified divers can look forward to wall, drift dives and deep water exploration. 

Kea is famous for its numerous wreck. Among the best wreck dives in the Mediterranean, the famous 19th century paddle wheeled steamer Patris, in a depth between 28-40 m, is still in a very good condition and is located very close to our dive center. Swimming and snorkeling trips are also available for non-divers.

The operation boasts new and well-maintained equipment as well as top quality fast 9  meter RIBs.  

Please note: If you check in to the hotel after 15.30 the first day, you will not be able to dive this day. Remember also that you cannot dive for 12 hours before your return flight.

During July and August we operate mainly from our secondary base, in Koundouraki beach, at the south west partof the island ( due to favourable weather conditions) which is 30 minutes drive from the hotel. That means that it is recommended for the clients to book also a rental car for their transport on the island, considering that we (keadivers) are not able to provide such service. Otherwise they will need to take a taxi to move back and forth.
