Diving in Kos is a promising activity: the waters are clear, the marine life abundant, rich in colors, and safe.
Kos is a great destination for active travelers. It offers a wealth of activities, from windsurfing and horseback riding, to hiking and biking, plus resort activities that are also available at Astir Odysseus Kos Resort & Spa, like tennis, wall climbing, yoga, and more.
If diving is your favorite pastime, Kos does not disappoint. There are many PADI certified centers with qualified instructors to offer you classes and tours. If you are experienced and already know the waters, there are rentals if you don’t come with your own gear. There are also pro shops – all diving centers will know how to point you into the right direction.
If you want to go diving in Kos, here are the main three centers to choose from:
Kos Divers is a 5 star PADI diving center, with its own pro shop. They offer a variety of SCUBA diving classes for all ages, but also Technical diving.
