British run Odyssey Dive Club is Halkidiki’s only PADI 5* Instructor Development Centre. The club has been established since 1998 and is led by PADI Course Director – Phrederika Miltiadou.

The dive sites of the area offer almost virgin diving with sponge wall coverings, many varieties of Nudibranch, Moray Eels, Sea Stars, Octopus, Lobsters and much more in the clearest waters you can imagine. What is more, you are unlikely to encounter another group of divers underwater.

Shipwrecks are a great attraction. The 'Mytilini' a 36m long wine carrier sank in 1961, lies 22m down, in cruising position, on the sandy bottom. It's of course on Odyssey Dive Club's diving circuit!

Odyssey Dive Club offers a varied snorkelling and diving circuit from both shore and boat, and a full range of PADI programmes and courses from beginners to Instructor training.

Our friendly, multinational team of experienced instructors is ready to receive you any time from Easter to end-October.

'Sail & Dive' a new concept

The main idea behind the sail and dive program is that it is more enjoyable to have a lot of activities while on vacation. It combines the 'normal' sailing yacht vacations and the 'normal' diving vacations into one.

The program is one week of sailing around Halkidiki and North Sporades, in perfect conditions for sailing, and each day making up to 3 dives in the most interesting spots of North Aegean.
