Antonis Antonakis offers the one really world-class dive I've done in
Greece.  It's all about Bluefin Tuna.  An unknown number of these big fish
(some over 2 m.) are present 10 months of the year, and are more than
willing to come up to to divers for an extra snack.  We had about 8 to 10
of them milling around us for 20 min. or so.  This is in a no-take zone
respected by the fishermen, and overall the richest area for marine life
that I've seen in Greece (where no-take zones are precious few).  The other
dives offered are beautiful and interesting -- we had Anthias anthias at
about 95 ft. on one of them -- but the Serifos tuna dive is a unique
experience.
