Hello there and welcome to my scuba diving place on the web, divebuddy.gr ! My name is Efstathios (Stathis) Paliampelos and I am a PADI Scuba Instructor located at West Crete, Falasarna Kissamos Chania.
My story in diving began in 2003 when I decided to become an Open Water Diver. Since then a whole new world came up for me, the underwater one. Full of passion I continued diving and diving around, also been trained further till 2006 when I decided to take the next step and go pro so I became a certified instructor.
Scuba diving really changed my life in a surprizing way. Been diving all around Greece and made lots of good friends who gave me the nickname of divebuDDy, which is something I love and use very often specially through the web.
Since 2007, I moved at my hometown Platanos Kissamos and this actually the place where I live and work right now, enjoying everyday the magical natural beauties of west crete and it’s fantastic shoreline with unique beaches like Falasarna, Balos, Elafonisi and Gulf of Kissamos.
So if you share the same passion for scuba diving and sea adventures you are more than welcome here! Feel free to watch all the info I provide and -why not- contact me! Best wishes to all the divers out there!
keep diving…keep training…
