At Omega divers Chania, we always suggest that you scuba dive with people you know and with locals.
Diving is a great way to meet new and interesting people. Dive buddies that are familiar and have diving likes and practices that are similar to your own will make it more enjoyable. The objectives of the dive will run parallel and will not cause friction between goals during the dive. For instance, our instructors at Omega Divers in Chania together with two friends that are going to take pictures or are looking for a certain species of fish in an area can work as a team.
When scuba diving in a new area, find a local guide or diver with experience who can show you the better locations and has knowledge of the animals and conditions.
