Incredible friendly and most professional, top service, most recommended! Anything a diver could require it’s provided at once. Even complex wishes for Trimix and Nitrox were no problem until he next morning. Many fantastic wrecks can be dived within spitting distance plus many nature spots, so diving is always great, no matter for the wind / weather conditions. Unlimited superb facilities nearby for lunch / coffee / dinner make this one of my all-time favourites.

Excellent host, outstanding service, superb diving – that’s Scubalife! Nikos runs a great facility for technical and recreational diving alike. The dive centre is well equipped: there are lockers and a shower, all gas-mixes are available and Nikos has lots of twinsets, stages and argon bottles for rent. Diving is excellent and if you like wrecks, Palaia Fokaia is the place to be, as there are a lot of wrecks within reach for every level of diving. Aside from diving, Nikos makes sure you will find your way to the best taverns of Palaia Fokaia and around 😉 I had a great five days at scubalife, actually my most relaxed holidays in years. This is a 150% recommendation to dive with Nikos.

Diving with friends from Day 0 onwards!! Excellent hosting, service, logistics, food and perhaps one Ouzo to much at the end ;-), a great weak at Scubalife and hopefully not the last one. Looking forward to visit you again. Thank you very much Nikos.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many wrecks are potentially available for a TWW?Nikos2022-04-05T13:34:42+03:00
Simply, check the scheduled weeks and book your spot! We have an online booking system so you know if there are spaces available. All divers select either the OC package or the CCR package based on their certification.
For those who have a Hypoxic certification they simply book the OC package.
What does the Tech 2 price include?Nikos2021-03-06T17:54:58+03:00
It includes the price for a bottom stage of Trimix and an oxygen deco stage to either extend the bottom time on a 40-60M range dive, or to be used on a 60-75M range dive. The total cost is calculated at the end of the week for the number of bottom stages used. Extra payments can either be made online, by card or with cash at the dive centre.
What happens in the event of adverse sea/weather conditions when dives are cancelled?Nikos2021-03-06T17:55:32+03:00
As you know all dives are subject to weather and sea conditions. However we make every attempt to ensure that no dive is missed, either by moving that dive to another time slot on the same day when conditions may improve, or in the case of a no-go. We will offer the choice of an alternative wreck destination if possible, make an extra dive on another day or fully refund the dive.
What depth ranges do we dive if there’s a group of both Normoxic and Hypoxic divers?Nikos2021-03-06T17:56:08+03:00
Usually, the schedule of the dives is based on the decision to either all dive wrecks within the depth range level of the whole group. So we all dive together in the 40-60M range or split the members of the group and dive as 2 separate teams.
For example, if within a group of 5 divers, 3 are Tech 2/CCR and 2 are Tech 1, either all the group will dive within 40-60M, or the group containing Tech 2/CCR will dive in the morning and the Tech 1 group will dive when the first group is back. In this case priority will be given to the group travelling the furthest to the wreck.
Does Scubalife hold spare parts for rebreathers?Nikos2021-03-06T17:56:53+03:00
Normally we stock Helium well in advance of the week commencing. Therefore our package prices are updated accordingly. However helium prices are subject to periodic fluctuation. We will endeavour to give you notice of any price changes.
Are airport transfers included in the package price and how long is the transfer journey?Nikos2021-03-06T18:03:38+03:00
Yes, we offer different accommodation based on the budget and type. We primarily promote accommodation options that do not require transportation and are located within walking distance from the dive centre where quests can easily roam around the town, walk at the pier or enjoy restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Accommodation options may include shared houses or apartments in the town.
We are happy to sort out your needs whether a lonely wolf, couple or families.
Is there a local supermarket for self catering?Nikos2021-03-06T18:05:13+03:00
There is a public transportation bus line that connects the town of Palea Fokea directly with downtown Athens in an hourly basis. Bus stop is literally in front of the dive centre. It takes around one and half our drive and ticket is at 5€ one way.
