Being half Greek myself I spend every summer there. In 2011 I first went diving in Kefalonia, one of the Ionian Greek islands. I loved it so much that I went back to the same Dive Centre, Aquatic in Agia Efimia as I was very impressed by the service and dives they provided. The average visibility is 30m, water temperature 28°C and marine life is very diverse and interesting; from slipper lobsters to amber jack and grouper and even the occasional turtle!As can be seen in the photo below I did a few dives off another, more remote island, Ithaca. The wall dive there went down to 40m and was spectacular. As the island is one of the less inhabited and unspoiled islands the marine life and quality of the wall reflects this. There are also some ancient Roman pots from an old shipwreck which have settled there, adding historic and archaeological interest.
Wall Dive in Ithaca, a beautiful, unspoiled, remote island off Kefalonia!
A WW II unexploded mine! Don't worry! Its safe!

I highly recommend diving in Kefalonia (with Aquatic), if you’re wanting to go somewhere new then give it a try! Please check out my blog: http://scubasiren.blogspot.com/
