PADI Gold Palm ResortAqua Divers Club in Greece, a PADI 5* Instructor Development Dive Resort caters for both novice and certified scuba divers. The dive shop is located at the Calypso Hotel km 48.5 Athens – Souniou Avenue, a stone’s throw from Athens, 25 minutes from El. Venizelos Airport and not far from the famous temple of Poseidon, situated at Cap Sounio.

The dive shop offers scuba divers and snorkellers a comprehensive selection of PADI scuba  diving courses with all the necessary multi media equipment for scuba teaching/training purposes, daily boat and shore fun dives, and scuba/snorkelling equipment for rental or sale. It is one of the few dive shops in the Attica region with its feet or fins almost touching the water, so easy access to the sea for both novice and certified scuba divers.

The Calypso Hotel, where the dive shop is situated, was established during the 1960’s and was one of the bases utilized by Jacques Cousteau during his visits to Greece. Following in his father’s footsteps, Jean Michel, his son, stayed at this hotel during the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. So the Calypso Hotel has a long association with the history of scuba diving.


The dive shop operates all year round,
seven days a week, and is situated in one of the most beautiful bays on the Attica coast, with spectacular views towards Souniou, Arsida and Patroklos Islands and the open sea.

altThe scuba diving sites are varied and well protected, with breathtaking topography and an abundance of marine life.

From the dive shop it only takes one minute to reach the beach for a shore dive or the boat for a scuba diving excursion to the islands. .

The instructors are multi lingual: English, French, German and Greek and all PADI courses are offered in these languages.

All programmes are either private lessons or groups up to a maximum of five students, at times that will fit into your schedule.

All scuba diving courses offered, Bubblemaker through to Assistant Instructor rating, follow PADI standards and lead to certification. Scuba instruction for beginners takes place in the security of the sheltered bay of the Calypso Hotel, with a depth ranging from 0- 10 metres and its own house reef, where over 30 different species have been spotted amongst its interesting rock formations.
