My step son wanted to try diving so as complete novices booked with Omega Divers. From the second we booked in we was looked after by the staff and instructors. After a quick process of form filling we had out instructor give us the theory and informed us a brief description of what to expect. After all the paperwork was completed we was measured up for our diving equipment. Everything was loaded in a van and we drove about 10 mins down the road to our diving spot. Once changed and ready we was escorted into the water and had our dive which was amazing and enjoyed seeing fish and some lobsters on our dive. I would recommend this activity with omega divers to any inexperienced people who want to try diving. Thank you to all the staff and instructors for a truly memorable experience ! Paul & Jack
To start, we were shuttled to and from our villa, which was super convenient! Once we arrived, we were greeted by a smiling and competent staff who made everyone feel right at home. Once settled, we began with an extremely well presented tutorial on the scuba essentials. During the dive, the staffs professionalism really shined. Their attentiveness was outstanding and it was apparent that safety was their number one priority. It was my daughters first dive, and I was relieved to know she was in great hands. To cap it all off, the team was able to provide a great diving experience for everyone by facilitating a true discovery of the world of diving. We saw many interesting structures, fish, and even some squid. This is the perfect team to trigger your "diving bug". Highly recommended!
This was an amazing experience. Aspassia, our hostess, was a delightful, friendly and experienced lady. She explained all about the different kinds of olive oil and had us sample a few. This was then followed by wonderful Cretan plates to sample with the different oils. We went back home to check all the information on our current olive oil bottles :) I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone who is looking for a nice, relaxing afternoon in an olive grove.
The whole experience was absolutely lovely! The lady who was our guide and walked us through the process was nice and warm and she explained everything very clearly. She has a lot of interesting stories and answered our questions about Crete in general! The village is a gorgeous little place with character and I highly recommend seeing it upon your visit to Heraklion! The whole experience was enjoyable and very fun! I recommend this to people of any age.
The experience was very nice. It's just like snorkeling but in the water not at the surface. The instructors were nice and relaxed and polite, especially ours (Freya) wich was amazing and encouraging. I would say it is worthwhile and a must do at least once. You can always go to the surface in seconds so you don't feel any danger, always light, always others, you can always see the bottom. Definitely worth the price.
