Who we are

Our diving centre was founded in 1990 on Kapari, a small island measuring 10 acres just two miles from the town of Hermione. The centre has operated for almost 20 years putting customer services and safety first, and is one of the longest-running diving centres in Greece, and perhaps the only one located on a small island in the entire world. You can feel safe and secure with our zero-accident track record. The island, Kapari, is named after the Greek word kapari, meaning caper, so widely used in Greek cuisine.

How to get here

Our diving island is just 175 km from Athens, on the south-east side of the Peloponnese, and more specifically on the first ‘foot’ of the peninsula, a breath away from the town of Hermione. Porto Heli, the beautiful island of Spetses and cosmopolitan Hydra are also nearby. Moreover, the town of Nafplion and the pre-Hellenic ruins of Mycenae are perfect day-trips, and the ancient theatre of Epidauros is just 95 km away by car.

If your starting point is the centre of Athens or the international airport Eleftherios Venizelos, you have the following options:

a) Head for the port of Piraeus – from the airport take the bus service to the centre, and then Metro line 1 to Piraeus. Hellenic Seaways ‘flying dolphin’ boats leave daily for Hermione.
b) There are daily coaches to Hermione from the Athens main coach station.
c) Rent a car from the airport. Take the national highway in the direction of Korinthos. When you pass the Isthmus, take exit B’ for Korinthos then follow the signs to Hermione.
