Dive Sites

Dive Sites on Alonissos are plentiful!!

Found in the center of the National Marine Park, the island is a haven for marine life as the area has been protected for many years.  Our dive sites are located around Alonissos as well as the surrounding deserted islands and will definitely be an experience to remember!!  Marine life we see on our dives include White Seabream, Golden Groupers, Damselfish, Octopus, Dolphins, Salema, Saddled Seabream, Dusky Groupers, Lobster, Brown Meagre, Moray Eels, Cuttlefish as well as numerous different species of micro life!!

Blue Cave - South

Lovely drop off down to about 25m followed by a very nice wall dive and back over rocks with plenty of sea life – finishing the dive off back in the cave itself with beautiful blue colours in the water and a couple of little caves to take a look in. Interchangeable landscape of seaweed and rocks. Visibility very good with a variety of sea life.

Blue Cave - North

Beautiful dive with multiple large rocks teaming with life to swim around and between with optional sea grass routes slightly further from the coast.  Ending by following the wall back around and into the cave again.  Vertical wall with many colours and very good visibility.  Abundant number of large fish.

Visibility:      7 – 12 m
Maximum Depth: 7 m
Average Temp: 19 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 7 m
Rousoum

Lovely little pebble beach 5 mins from our dive center, not only the location for most of our Discover Scuba Diving courses – as it is nice and easy to enter and exit the water and stay to shallow depths if required – but also the site we do most of our night diving due to the large number of octopus, cuttlefish and congers in the area.  Excellent spot for beginners and other levels.  Easy entrance into the sea from the shore with an interesting wander between the rocks.

Visibility:      5 – 12 m
Maximum Depth: 12 m
Average Temp: 19 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Discovery, Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 12 m
Xera Mourtias - North

A stone reef in the middle of the bay is home to two of our dives, the Northern one is an awesome drop off from about 10m down to 33m (although we don’t need to hit the bottom!) which we then follow the huge wall around to a large bed of sea grass then backup on top of the reef to check out for crabs and nudibranchs on the return trip.

Visibility:      10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 35 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 15 – 25 m
Xera Mourtias - South

We start the dive with the same impressive drop off as the North side however this time we head South toward the sea end of the reef. A larger wall dive than the North that has old fishing nets caught along it which makes for quite a picturesque dive with schools of Sea Bream and Damselfish that like to come over the top and down the wall to see what the divers are up to.

Visibility:      10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 35 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 15 – 25 m

 

 

Mavros Kavos - East

Very nice deeper dive site, heading out over sea grass we come out onto a large underwater plain with large boulders scattered around it, as it is a little further out from shore compared to the West side we often see larger fish and marine life.  An area with many boulders which house an abundant amount of large fish.  The spot deepens gently so the dive is ideal for all levels.

Visibility:      10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 45 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 15 – 30 m
Mavros Kavos - West

Pretty wall dive with sandy bottoms on the left and leading out to a large sea grass field, following the same wall back along we often finish this dive off in a small cave just the other side of the bay which is nearly always full of a large school of young fish.  A vertical wall which clearly impresses.

Visibility:      10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 40 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 15 – 25 m
Two Brothers - South

Our largest and probably most impressive wall dive in the area, the dive starts off going through a shallow swim through between mainland and the small islet that is home to the wall dive itself.  Due to this site dropping off so fast we often get larger scale fish that we see elsewhere especially scorpion fish. An impressive wall with a lot of sea life and colour and a passage through an underwater ravine which makes this experience unforgettable.

Visibility:     10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 50 m
Average Temp: 16 – 25 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver + 20 dives
Depth of Interest: 10 – 25 m
Two Brothers - Shipwreck

Our resident wreck of an old immigration boat that sunk off the coast of the Two Brothers around 15 years ago.  We follow a sandy channel and a wander through seaweed down to about 22m where the beautiful wooden shipwreck appears out of the blue on your left hand side – we have an explore around (reaching depths of 30m) then head back up to the coastline where we finish the dive investigating some of the strewn wreckage and seeing if we can spot octopus!

Visibility:     8 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 30 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 10 – 23 m
Two Brothers - East

A shallow passage which leads to an impressive wall with a lot of sea life and very good visibility.

Visibility:     10 – 20 m
Maximum Depth: 35 m
Average Temp: 16 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver + 20 dives
Depth of Interest: 15 – 25 m
Nudi Rock

Named after the number of Nudibranchs that we find here! This is a lovely little dive site which includes wall diving, swimming between slots and over rocks so there can be quite a variety of things to see – especially lots of flambellinas. A must dive site for the micro life lovers.

Visibility:      10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth:  40 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Advanced Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 10 – 35 m
Agios Petros

A lovely little dive off the East coast of Alonissos, a little wall that goes down to a sandy bottom which is home to many flounders and the odd octopus too. This is followed by a range of stone pillars and rocks to hunt around for all the fun stuff! It has a couple of options on it depending on the level of diver as to whether you take the swim between mainland and island on the route back to the boat or head back along usually with the current for a nice lazy drift back to the boat.

Visibility:      10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 30 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 5 – 22 m
Agios Giorgos - North

A very nice deeper dive where we probably see more things that are not seen elsewhere around the marine park.  A reasonably long wall dive out to some dramatic big open spaces scattered with rocks and pillars, often get the larger morays out here and even a Spanish dancer of two.  A beautiful underwater outcropping with rich sea life.

Visibility:     10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 33 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 15 – 25 m

 

 

Agios Giorgos - South

Another lovely wall dive with some old fishing nets caught along it that adds another dimension to the site which leads you up over some sea grass and round to the coastline which you follow back through and over boulders to the cove which is often home to some pretty nice schools of fish.

Visibility:     10 – 15 m
Maximum Depth: 33 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 15 – 25 m

 

The Caves

Three years ago, our dive team discovered these two remarkably splendid caves while out searching for new and interesting sites.  What they found was amazing and quite a unique experience.  One is a passage (tunnel) with ample lighting that highlights all colours since it has windows to the outside. The second cave has an entrance at a 6m depth and penetrates to 15m. Follow the dramatic coastline around along walls and through boulder fields and into a large cavern at the end of the dive.  Certainly one of the most fun and geologically pretty sites we have!  Of course, we keep the location secret so only Alonissos Triton Dive center knows where it is!!!  Come dive with us an experience this fabulous dive!!

Visibility:     5 – 10 m
Maximum Depth: 30 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
Suggested Level: Open Water Diver
Depth of Interest: 5 – 18 m
Gorgonian Gardens

A real site to behold!  Between 35 – 40 m a stunning garden of colourful Gorgonians will leave you breathless!  We have discovered 2 different gardens – both equally beautiful.  As these gardens grow where there is a strong current – only advanced experienced divers can dive here. A must see for all avid lovers of the deep!

Visibility:     5 – 10 m
Maximum Depth: 45 m
Average Temp: 17 – 26 C
