One might rightfully say that there’s more to Corfu than meets the eye. And, indeed, the island of Corfu does not come down only to what the surface yields in terms of landscape and surface seascape, but it is also full of surprises underneath the water. This is why scuba diving is such a thriving activity in Corfu. Enthusiasts and possibly enthusiasts to be are invited to explore the underwater scenery of Corfu, the quality of their experience being guaranteed by the several proficient scuba diving centers on the island. These centers are recommendable both by force of their chosen diving spots, each more interesting than the other, and by the fact that their staffs offer excellent instructions and supervision to those who need guidance, the staffs consisting generally of PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), CMAS (Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques), BSAC (British Sub-Aqua Club) and DAN (Drivers Alert Network) ascertained people. The following refer to some of the most popular centers, though the list is far from being complete:
The Seven Islands Dive center takes pride in working with the best PADI, DAN and BSAC ascertained divers and in offering a large range of scuba diving experiences, such as cave diving and wreck diving. Besides scuba diving as such, the center offers snorkeling opportunities for those who are not as daring enough as to venture into the depths of the sea.
Dive Easy offers, depending on the diving spots, wreck diving, cave diving and reef diving, as well as snorkeling. Experienced and certified divers are always available for accompanying and supervising their clients’ expeditions, and children are offered special attention.
Achilleon Diving, located in the beautiful resort of Paleokastritsa and featuring a branch in the Ermones bay, offers some of the most interesting experiences related to scuba diving.

The small village of Agios Gordis hosts another proficient diving center in Corfu, namely, the Calypso Diving Center.
