Athens is a city surrounded by sea and is well known for the beauty of its beaches. What is equally, or even more beautiful but far less well known though, is the sea bed in the Saronic Gulf.
The Saronic Gulf has brought to light much new evidence regarding maritime activity and sea trade in the region, as well as in the Aegean in general, from the Bronze Age through to the early Byzantine years.
Near the coastal line from Vouliagmeni to Sounion, the sea bed in its deeper parts is rocky with fields of poseidonians. The environment provides the necessary circumstances for a complex ecosystem consisting of many different kinds of fishes and plankton.
Divers have the opportunity to meet with a hidden world full of colors and rare species. A unique oasis in the Mediterranean, by virtue of the beauty and richness of the organisms that inhabit it.
A fact chiefly attributable to the singular geography and conformation of the area. A broad strip of land extending several miles out into the open sea which intercepts the currents that cross the cost from Piraeus to Sounion and behind, creating conditions favorable to the concentration of large amounts of nutritive substances.
In addition to this the unusual shape of the coastline which, with its marvelous coves and atypical conglomerate rock formations, offers thousands of different species the ideal environment in which to live and reproduce.
Few places in the Mediterranean can boast such a spectacular concentration of life forms, and to preserve these treasures of the area with plenty of 1st & 2nd WW wrecks and earlier.
Warships, steamboats, merchant ships and naval tugs... which always offer up the thrill of some new discovery to any wreck diver.
