Fiskardo Divers – A Profesionnal, Ethical & Friendly Dive Centre in the North Kefalonia

ABOUT US

 

We are PADI dive centre run by a French Master Scuba Diver Trainer and biologist. Arriving in Fiskardo in 1999, Cédric Georges established the Fiskardo Environmental Museum before founding Fiskardo Divers in 2005. In 2018, he established the marine research and conservation organisation, KOSAMARE. Our office is therefore always busy with divers and researchers, and you can find an assortment of displays on the Mediterranean monk seal, loggerhead turtle, and the impressive skeleton of a Cuvier’s beaked whale! We also have artifacts and the story of a Bristol Beaufighter – a British bomber shot down near Fiskardo in 2944 (you can dive on the wreck!). 

 

Built in 1870, our building is one of the oldest in Fiskardo and has a beautiful vaulted room that was used in the past to store the salt of the village. This is where we now store our diving equipment. Our compressor is a Paramina Typhoon Classic (15m3/h) with two 50 litre storage tanks for fast refilling. We are affiliated with Scubapro, our equipment is tested annually by professionals and renewed frequently.
