Diving is not considered a modern activity in Greece. It’s an ancient activity that it was first mentioned by the ancient poet Homer in “Odyssey” and continued till recent times, where people in the Aegean islands had to practice free diving to 80 – 100 m deep in order to collect sponges and trade them so that they could earn their living and take care of their families.
