UNDER THE OLD BAUXITE MINES of Amorgos on the east side of the island, you will find a unique dive site that bears witness to the once bustling mines.

After a steep drop off there is a plateau at 18 metres where you can see parts of the equipment used to load the mined bauxite to different cargo ships. Parts of old steel wagons with their wheels still attached and pieces of the tracks on which they were pushed can be found on several points along this dive site.

Continuing to the north by keeping the reef on the left side, you will see several rock formations creating gentle slopes interspersed with dramatic walls.

A PERFECT PLACE for those who love the blue. Located on the east side of the island, this dive site offers the opportunity to swim through a relatively narrow passage created by fallen rocks and with the entrance at around 18m.

The colors of the various soft corals on the walls and the ceiling in combination with the rays of sunlight that reach the cavern will definitely impress even the most demanding diver. Exiting the cavern you will find on both sides a breathtaking wall with a small ledge at around 35m before another drop, this time to the infinite blue. On the face of the wall there are many overhangs and little holes to explore at various depths.

The general morphology of the area is ideal for a relaxing, slow dive in an effort to discover the little occupants hiding on the wall.

Nikouria’s Cavern

Nikouria’s Cavern

OUR OWN LITTLE PEARL amongst our dive sites, Nikouria’s Cavern is probably the most popular one if you ask our customers!

The location is an open cavern which gives the possibility for divers of all levels to enjoy the beauty of it. When inside you will experience a true color explosion. The walls are completely covered with bright purple, red and yellow sponges, diverse corals, micro marine life and large spiral worms. On the bottom you will find a swim through, here we usually spot lobsters hiding in the wall and bigger scorpion fish.

The cavern’s shape creates a spectacular landscape towards the blueness of the open sea. On the way back, we also explore the pockets of the wall where a huge meadow of Neptune grass (indicating how clean our waters are) is home to fan mussels, nudibranchs, pipe fish and much more.

A BREATHTAKING LANDSCAPE DIVE  loca-ted “just around the corner” from our popular cavern.

This deep wall dive starts with a beautiful wall that slopes down to about 40 meters. Because of the excellent visibility, you are always able to see all the way down to the sandy bottom.
The wall is filled with pockets where you will be able to find diverse micro marine life, sponges, nudibranch and smaller fishes such as wrasse, bream & cardinal fish. The occasional large grouper can be found hiding in the wall.

Following the wall you will find yourself at a point where the sea melts into the dramatic high slopes of Nikouria Island. Here you can take a second to admire and absorb the magic of the waves breaking above you towards the stonewalls of the Island and the soothing blueness of the open sea.

Deep Blue Wall

A MIND BLOWING DIVE at a short boat ride to the western tip of the Island of Nikouria. This deep wall dive is truly fascinating with a stunning cavern at around 25m! It is the closet experience to skydiving you can get in the sea.

Begin the dive with a treat, you will spot a large amphora, lying on the skirt of the wall. We believe it is remains from one of the ships that sank during “the battle of Amorgos” in 322 BC.  The depth stretches down to an approximate of 60m. giving the absolute sensation of weightlessness.

If you pay extra attention you might spot one stingray or two dancing around at the bottom of the sea or passing barracuda and tuna. Explore the small pockets in the wall, filled with marine life. At the depth of 25m. the wall opens up into a large but very shallow cave with high walls where divers can safely enter and enjoy the experience of it.

This dive site is a great choice if you want to have a mind blowing, deep adventure!
