As Rhodes is located just a short distance from the second deepest point of the Mediterranean sea (Lindos Basin), the island can offer all types of diving, from nice relaxing shallow depths to the more extreme deep cave dives.
Being a volcanic area in the ancient times, the underwater topography is full of dramatic cliffs and large lime stone reefs with small unusual caverns and deep never ending caves that have been there since ancient Greece.
Over the past years the sea life around the island has seen some great changes for the better. There is always something to see, a wide variety of micro life, schools of bream, damsel fish, grouper, cuttlefish, octopus, moray eels and squid etc. and with a bit of luck you can spot nudibranch, sea horses, sea hears, amber jacks, tuna, sting rays, turtles and even monk seals.
The warm and crystal clear waters have brought some immigrants from the red sea, pipefish, soldier fish, rabbit fish and there have even been some sightings of lion fish!

DiveMed Scuba Diving South Rhodes cooperates with TUI Sensatory in Gennadi, Atrium Prestige hotel in Lachania as well as Magic Life hotel in Plimmiri, Rhodes and you can find our office in the Hotel.
Plimmiri is approximately 85km from Rhodes Town at Cape Vigla, near to the part of Rhodes. It is a quiet, sandy bay with a small fisherman’s harbour and a lovely taverna.
Plimmiri is where you can find Giannoula K a 110m cargo ship wreck. Built in the Netherlands, Giannoula K went through several owners before sinking in 1981 after some bad weather in Plimmiri bay. Lying at a maximum depth of 22m and still mostly intact this is a fabulous wreck dive.
Pefkos is a small village and holiday resort just after Lindos and about 56km from Rhodes Town. Pefkos is also where our second Waterhoppers dive base is. Equipped with a shower area, WC and a briefing area under the shade of the beautiful pine trees, where Pefkos got it’s name from. This is where we start our Pefkos dives.
Fokia bay is walking distance from the dive base, this small rocky bay has two very pretty, shallow dives, with many overhangs hiding a plethora of Mediterranean sea life. In the early season sting rays use the bay as a mating area.
Lindos is situated on the southeast coast, about 54km from Rhodes Town. It was one of Rhodes ancient and most important cities as it offers a fantastic protected bay and a tall cliff where the acropolis was built. In the 14th century the Knights of St. John used the acropolis of Lindos to build a massive fortress to defend the island against the Ottomans. Lindos now has been declared a national land mark, with many of its buildings still intact.
Lindos offers some of the most spectacular diving in Greece. As it is one of the deepest parts of the sea around the island it has a lot to offer, DiveMed visits various sites around Lindos (6+ dive sites) which include impressive walls that keep dropping to 70m+, caves with large connecting domes and drift diving under the ancient city that still stands above.
The depths and currents bring larger Mediterranean sea life, tuna, large dusky grouper and even seals have been spotted here. In the dark caves you can see a large amount of micro life, spotted shrimp are one of the main occupants as well as nudibranch. All the dives start from our Pefkos dive base and are reached by our 8m rib. Once you have dived Lindos, it will rank in one of your top ten dives easily.
