St George "Geronissos"
St George "Geronissos"

Saint George (Island) is also known as Geronisos (Island), meaning ‘holy island’ and offers a more challenging experience for the adventurous diver.

A drop-down mouth onto a 12-metre ridge heralds the start of the dive, where a huge swim through sits between rocks. Here the more experienced diver can enter the darkness that unfolds with a series of dramatic twists, turns and corridors before exiting through a crack in the reef. Less experienced divers can follow along the top of the ridge.

Heading towards the bottom of the ridge, a colourful underwater kingdom is revealed; from the nudibranch and sponges to bright algae, whilst a series of smaller caves and ridges are home to other species such as bream, damselfish, grouper, lionfish and wrasse.
