The STAY WET DIVING CENTER started operating in March 1995 with a few certified divers and expanded to one of the best organized diving bases in Crete. Recognized by the Greek government, member of the “PADI RESORT ASSOCIATION” and “SSI” and certified by the quality control organization EBETAM, it is keeping a high standard of security and service.
Located in the small romantic bay of Mononaftis, in the town of Agia Pelagia (only 20kms West of Heraklion), the instructors of STAY WET DIVING CENTER will accompany you in the crystal clear and warm water. Their professionalism and their experience will assure that your discovery will be full of unforgettable memories.
You will be charmed by the silent and peaceful inhabitants of the Mediterranean. Groupers, starfish, sponges, squid, moray eels and many other fish and plants can be admired during the dive.
Sometimes you can also be accompanied by turtles, barracudas, rays and small seahorses. The underwater world of Crete is rich in caves, overhangs, and canyons, and offers a wide range for divers of all levels.
Mononaftis is protected from the wind and even, when Aeole makes his own and “nails” the boats at the quay, the water in our bay remains calm and offers a dive in complete safety.
The STAY WET DIVING CENTER is located behind the “Nemo” bar in Mononaftis bay and provides a covered terrace, changing cabins, toilets, fresh water showers and lockers for personal belongings are available to our customers.
We also take care of your transfer from the hotel to the base and back (between Malia and Fodele). For non-divers it is possible to rent deckchairs and parasols on the beach.
The center is of course equipped with a first aid kit with oxygen, a Bauer compressor of 24m2 and complete equipment for 26 divers (Aqualung and Cressi.Sub). The tanks can be used in Din and Yoke version.
Our shop provides equipment rental at competitive rates as well as tank fillings. Qualified technicians from Aqualung and Cressi.Sub are keeping our diving equipment in a perfect condition. Our team consists of French instructors and guides internationally trained and qualified.
