Hi,

Check Antony Grafa's websites, he lists a few UW photo destinations.

By experience, dives in the Mediterranean are deep, in Greece even more. I was disappointed diving the Cyclades island and Crete too at Recreational depths.

Good luck and please let us know where you dive and how you find it!

 

PS : this is based on my three experiences there, and others may have other point of views etc !

I can recommend Zakynthos (https://www.nero-sport.de/en/) from my personal experience. The base is well organized and if you come with a buddy, they will let you dive according to your needs as a UW-photographer (provided that you don't dive like crazy and adhere to the time and depth demands) . Very good visibility (the deepest spot of the mediterranean (one of these spots is called "Calypso depth", > 5 km deep) is only few tens of miles away), plenty of caves and grottos and all kind of animals that populate the mediterranean.

Generally, the Ionian sea is biologically richer than the Egean sea. Years ago I was diving in the Zyklades and this was disapponting: also good vis., but practically a desert. Good places were the east coast of the Pelepones (plenty of groupers) and east/south at the island of Hydra, where I could see the mediterranean triggerfish (Balistes caroliensis; rare in the mediterranean, more common in the part of the Atlantic ocean that is close to the mediterranean (e.g. canares islands). I cannot recommend diving bases there, as I was diving there on my own from my sailingboat ...
