The Centre for Alternative Tourism Ltd, "DIVING IN BLUE", was established in summer 2005 on the Cycladic Island of Tinos, in order to develop scuba diving by setting new and high standards according to ACUC International. :
Our principles are:
• Maximum safety
• High quality training
• Environmental protection
…and of course – FUN! FUN!
We like to introduce the natural wealth of our island to our guests by organizing exciting outdoor activities, always ensuring the highest standards of safety.
Snorkelling and scuba diving in the unique waters of Tinos is an incredible experience. You will be able to explore amazing blue waters and come into direct contact with underwater nature. A whole new world waits for you below the surface. Corals, rare fish species and colours you have never seen before.
We are fully equipped with well known brands, like Oceanic, Mares etc., plus a 9-m speedboat with 2 outboard engines, for save and fast transport to our destinations. For those who like to visit the neighbouring islands – such as Myconos, Delos or Syros, we are glad to organize small excursions with our boat.
Two diving sessions are planned each day, using the boat, while night dives can be arranged on request. We also offer free transportation for visitors.
Diving in Blue provides amateur and professional training lessons, as well as lifeguard training. We cooperate with all international divers associations.
Tinos is known as the “Island of Virgin Mary“ but also for its Artists and the spectacular – still unspoiled - nature. Throughout the whole year lots of Greek pilgrims from all over Greece and abroad come to Tinos. There are more than 50 villages and settlements on the island. Most of them were built during the middle Ages and possibly during the Byzantine period. All villages are inhabited and kept till today their traditional character, with picturesque footpaths, cobblestone pavements, arches, marble fountains and traditional old coffeehouses.
Come and visit us! We would like to share with you the unique combination of rough and mild nature with our state of the art diving equipment and technology!
