Diving in Sivota
At Sivota (Ancient Greek: Sybota) took place, according to Thucydides, the largest naval battle between Greek city states until that time. The battle of Sivota was happen in 433 BCE between Corcyra (modern Corfu) and Corinth and it was one of the immediate catalysts for the Peloponnesian War.
Sivota area was visited by the French naturalist Jacques Cousteau and his exploratory vessel Calypso, trying to dedicated the historical Sivota Battle……. but……. so, you never know what you can discover with Deep Blue Divers at diving!!!
The deepest part of the Sivota area reaches the 120m – 140m between of Sivota islands, Paxos island and Corfu island. At the coast line and around the Sivota islands are the shallowest diving spots. Through all the summer we don’t have winds, off course sometimes coming from the northwest but we have many diving spots around the islands which is protected from the wind.
Sivota enjoys a Mediterranean weather, with almost no rain in the period between May and September with sun all summer long. Diving in Sivota is very relaxing, the Ionian Sea is a friendly non-demanding environment. The visibility ranges from 25 to 35 meters all year round and we don´t have tides, so the water movements are minimum. Also the currents are well known for being inexistent or very low. Such good visibility temperate waters and no currents or tides makes it the perfect spot for a relaxed diving. The water temperatures range from 19 degrees in May until its peak of 25-26 Celsius degrees in July – August and September, we usually dive with a Scubapro 5mm wetsuit, in the warmest months even a shorty wetsuit will do the job, but we always offer 5mm long wetsuits for our customers. If you´re planning to bring your diving equipment, a 5mm long wetsuit will do for almost all the year. If you´re likely to get cold while diving we can also provide you chest vest, hoods, gloves, and we can always put another shorty wetsuit on top. The diving tanks we use are made of steel, in 10 or 12 liters size, also 18 liters on request.
The Marine life in Sivota is the typical you´ll find in the Mediterranean, Damselfish, Sea Slugs with predominance of (Pink Flabellina and Spotted),Groupers,Barracudas, moray, Octopus, Squids, Sea Breams, Wrasses,eel, Sea Horses, Parrot Fish, Flounders, Sea Slugs, Scorpion Fish, Gobies, Trumpetfish, Red Mullet, Amber Jack…also dolfins and sea turtles!!!
With most of its biodiversity located where the Posidonia meadows are, Sivota offers the opportunity to be amazed by the bright colors of the different families of sponges that grow in the area. Also amazings starfishes of different families and different sizes with wonderful colors, they will steal your heart!
Water is my favourite element.. I like to feel it, to move and breathe in it while observing or dreaming..
It’ s not easy to find people who share the same feeling for it.. Diving with Alexandros is a wonderful experience .. not just because he is passionate about the deep sea and the sealife.. but because he guides quitely , he gives you space and time to explore and take initiative into the water, he is like a silent and protective guard . This kind of diving is so similar to a nice yoga class. You find yourself in a neutral place and time where you can meet your true essence without limits . You let yourself go with the flow. I truly adore this feeling . I am so happy for yesterday ‘ s diving experience ! Thank uuu!!!
Alexandros and the team all very friendly and approachable. I showed up on spec with just my fins and mask and asked them if they would take me out to practice freediving. Alexandros arranged boat, buoy and marked up line, wetsuit, hood and even had some friends along as safety divers. Smart boat, friendly and professional outfit. I hope I get the chance to dive with you all again. Thank you Deep Blue
Top of the line, very well run dive centre. The equipment is in perfect condition – especially the compressor room. Simply beautiful. As a divemaster, its obvious to me, that the staff takes safety extremely serious. In my time diving I have only seen few places with the attention to detail, that these people have. 10/10!
Those guys are THE BEST! They are the reason why I became passionate about diving. Deep Blue Divers has the most professional, funny, best diving team – I am a fan 😃

Fantastic experience! Very professionel and nice instructors! If you are in Sivota you must go diving with Deep Blue Divers!!
My husband and I were on our vacation in Sivota and one day, somehow, we dropped our gopro camera. The bottom was at 7 metres, but it was covered in grass, very thick and long, we couldn’t find it for two days. But then we went to Deep Blue Divers and they offered us help right away and managed to find our camera and save our memories. Thank you so much once again!!! We are grateful for having chance to meet you!
2 great dives today. Felt very comfortable as soon as I arrived at the dive centre. Very professional, good quality equipment, all well maintained. Dive leader and instructors excellent. The fish life was the best I have seen in Greece. The best dive I have had in Greece. If you are thinking about going- I can’t recommend highly enough!!!😎😎🧜🏻♀️🧜🏻♂️🐠🐟
Diving with Vassilis and Ana was an amazing experience!!! One of the best of our lives! Thank you so much for doing what you love and share it with us ! We had a lot of laughs so thank you for that! Many kisses from Paris !! We hope to see you again next year 😉 Baptiste & Beatrice
Really fantastic instructors – friendly, patient, chilled! As a rather anxious beginner I found them so helpful. We had a great trip – thanks!
Professional but fun. Alexandros and Pernilla made my 15 year old daughter feel comfortable on the final stage of her PADI training and qualification dives. As parents we had absolute faith in Alexandros and the team for her safety and enjoyment on the dives. We contacted them from the UK by email having been referred to them by Neilson who we were holidaying with. The dives dates and timings were sorted out by text while we were there and we accompanied her to the dive sites and borrowed some masks and snorkels to potter around while waiting for her to surface. The underwater pictures they’ve sent us are fantastic for us to see her really enjoying herself and for her to keep. We highly recommend.
Had a great time scuba diving today with a friendly, helpful, supportive team, and perfect diving waters. Would recommend to anyone, especially beginners.
Fantastic, Awesome could continue….. Educated and well trained people. Great place for diving. Great for a beginner like me.
A must if you come to visit Syvota. We had booked our session in advance and they where very helpful with any kind of questions we might had. Professional and eager to help with any difficulties during the course. The Deep Blue Divers team is amazing and we thank you a lot for the amazing experience .
