Comments 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.
