Cannons of old pirate hulls, huge winches of modern shipwrecks, parts of World War II planes and of course sea turtles, seals, snails, octopuses, lobsters and cuttlefish, accompany the lover of the underwater sea urchin. Beautiful corals and rock formations are revealed, while a wonderful underwater world embraces and calms the visitor, thanks to the loss of gravity.
Many of the underwater sea caves of Kythira are still unexplored, mainly on the southwest side of the island. In Kythira there is an organized Scuba diving school.
