Fun times on the boat!

Visit two different dive sites, together with a group of other interested divers! 

Philomena, the perfect diving boat!

Come and meet our beautiful Philomena, and you will see how perfectly she has been designed for diving. 

Special underwater life!

As the boat dive sites we visit are untouched, we tend to find special species living here.  

Boat diving offers adventure

  • Enjoy the excitement of boating
  • Access to dive sites that you cannot reach from the shore
  • Spend time with like-minded people

Boat diving offers comfort

  • No need to walk carrying your diving gear
  • No need to enter the water through waves
  • No long surface swims

Explore untouched dive sites

We currently have 16 boat ::dive sites::, which no-one else has access to! We have a diverse variety of dives sites, offering:

  • Shallow, colourful dives
  • Wall dives
  • Cave dives
  • Deep, drop-off dives

Depending on the weather conditions we will choose a sheltered location which is appropriate for everyone on board!

Daily trips

We have a daily programme of two dives per day for certified divers. If Poseidon allows it we go out with our boat daily, from about 9:00 till 15:00, for more information on our daily fun diving programmes please look at our ::daily schedules::.

Boat dives are charged as ‘normal’ guided fun dives plus the boat surcharge. Pre-book a ‘normal’ dive package and upgrade your dives to boat dives by paying the boat surcharge once you are with us in Plakias.

  • Non divers are welcome aboard too!

    Spending a day on our ::Philomena:: is not only wonderful for divers, we also offer snorkelers and non-divers to join us for a day on the boat! That way, everyone can spend a wonderful day together, enjoying the sun and sea!


Fun Boat Diving Features

Meet Philomena!

We are very proud of our ::Philomena:: and rightly so! She is a custom-built diving motor-cruiser, creating the perfect setting for a wonderful day of boat diving!

Facilities on board include:

  • Cabin
  • Shower
  • Toilet

Private dive sites

When diving from our ::Philomena:: we dive where no others go – Dive2gether is the only diving school in the area who owns a boat, so we have our very own private ::dive sites::!

Boat service

Our Dive2gether Crew makes sure everyone is well taken care of, so just sit back and relax! Our service includes:

  • Providing anti-seasickness pills
  • Taking care of your comfort on board
  • Serving you lunch and drinks on board

Boat surcharge

To cover our boat fuel costs and the food and drinks that we provide on board, there is a boat surcharge.
