One of a kind experiences that you can get in Rethymno are snorkeling and scuba diving. Either if you are well-experienced or you have never dived before, there are plenty of reasons why you should try to go diving once that you are here.

Underneath the Rethymno sea, you can explore a whole new world. Any ordinary swimmer can easily discover the underwater life in certain areas in the presence of a professional and experienced diving instructor or divemaster. Take the opportunity to dive into this world and see different kinds of corals, shellfish and fish such as octopus, squid and multicolored fish in many sizes and shapes in their natural habitat; and if you are lucky enough even a Caretta-Caretta.

City of Rethymno

You are invited to travel to areas, which are perhaps still unknown to the majority, and which are sometimes remote, but always magical and magnificent throughout the seasons. We recommend our visitors to see our picturesque villages through the eyes of the soul, try the Cretan cuisine, our wine and “tsikoudia”, participate in our revelries and festivities, but most importantly get to know our soul, our hospitality, the safe, untouched interior of the region, the other Rethymno.
