The Lepia Dive Centre was set up by three brothers in 2013. Prompted by Greece's economic problems, which saw their pay slashed by 60%, they decided to switch to doing something they really enjoyed - diving.

They are very friendly people with a relaxed attitude and a pleasure to dive with. They cater to beginners and experienced divers, and run courses for disabled divers which are approved by DDI – Disabled Divers International. They dive with steel tanks (always preferable) in a range of sizes from 15 ltr for the heavy breathers to 10 or even 6 ltr for children.

Lepia Dive Centre is in a central location of Rhodes in the holiday town of Pefkos. Their dives include the "Giannoula K." shipwreck at Plimmiri which is around 40 minutes drive down the coast, plus caves, caverns, reefs and walls.

After the dive - Lepia are also very good with younger divers, photo copyright Lepia Dive Centre.
And if you were wondering, Lepia is Greek for fish scales.
