Greece is not really known for its scuba diving. Until recently, the government warily restricted diving due to it's paranoia of ancient artifacts and important archaelogical items being removed from underwater sites. Thankfully, the Greek government has loosened many of its regulations on scuba diving, although it is still restrictive for specialty dives like night and wreck dives.
Because there hasn't historically been much recreational diving, much of Greece's underwater expanse is largely unexplored. This is quite exciting because there are dozens of islands scattered around Greece in the Ionian and Aegean seas with hidden gems yet to be discovered. Diving in Corfu (and most of the Meditteranean) centers less around the abundance and variety of fish and more on interesting rock formations, swim-throughs, and exploration of wrecks. The visibility is surprisingly good (averaged around 50 ft) and octopus, squid, starfish, and fire worms are quite common. Diving centers tend to be very informal operations, with a traditional Greek approach to planning dive trips (in some cases this can be frustrating when trying to organize daily activities). The local divers are very friendly though, and make up for their lack of organizational skills with their zest for diving. Most of the good diving in Corfu is along the western coast and north-eastern coasts; picking accomodation close to where you will be diving is highly recommended.
