Our fully equipped base enables us to provide better services both for the locals and for visitors.
Located in the heart of probably the most touristic part of the island, on the center of Petra beach, 200m from the harbor of Petra, our Dive Base is fully equipped to serve as the starting point for dive excursions and, also, as a great location for courses. The small village of Petra is on the northern part of the island, about 60km from Mytilene, and just 5km from the picturesque village of Molyvos (Mithymna).
The bottom is sandy and smooth and the sea is usually calm, making this a great spot for courses and fun dives!
Our “home reefs” on the islands of Petra are just a five minute boat ride away, and more diverse dive spots are within 20-50 minutes boat ride.
All the equipment we use comes from the best manufacturers and is inspected and serviced regularly, exceeding Hellenic and International requirements.

“Great diving and friendly staff
Me and my girlfriend both wanted to go diving in Lesvos. We never did dives in the Mediterranean before. We were pleasantly surprised by the underwater landscape and marine life. Big underwater rocks and creatures like octopus make a dive worth it. The staff of this dive centre are really kind and helpful and makes diving fun as it should…”
