Blutopia’s Diving Center has been leading the way in marine ecotourism and diving for the past 15 years. We’re a family-run business and we specialize in showing people the stunning and remote natural environment around us.
Our diving center is situated on the southernmost tip of Greece, on the island of Rhodes, which has a beautiful coastline of around 220 km (137 mi). Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands and the fourth largest island in Greece, making it an ideal location to explore the wonders of the sea.
The island is located a short distance northwest of the Rhodes Abyssal Plain, which is a constituent feature of the Hellenic Arc – a trench of arc shape that originates in the Ionian Sea, stretches southwards of the Peloponnese and Crete and culminates in the southeast of Rhodes.
The significant depths surrounding the island of Rhodes, along with the presence of diverse marine life, the interplay of underwater and surface currents, and the availability of clear and nutrient-rich water, contribute to the emergence of large sea creatures frequently observed at Blutopia Marine Park. These conditions make it an exemplary destination for scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts in Rhodes.
Blunatura is an 11-meter speedboat that is primarily used for scuba diving excursions, although it is also available for marine biology snorkeling trips. It is specifically designed to accommodate scuba divers and their equipment, and its speed and safety features make it capable of reaching even the most remote locations.
Blutopia, on the other hand, is a fully functional tourist boat that is primarily used for our marine biology snorkeling trips, but can also accommodate divers. The boat has a full capacity of up to 40 people, and is equipped with top-of-the-line health and safety features.
