Blutopia Marine Park founder and managing director
“Blutopia Marine Park is the realization of my dream to combine marine education, respect for the environment, adventure and fun”
Savas is the heart of Blutopia Marine Park. A marine biologist with an M.Sc. in Aquaculture and marine resource management, Savas during the last 25 years has been involved in numerous projects that range from scientific diving research projects to business initiatives such as sea sponges aquacultures and fish farming in many parts of the Aegean sea.
Passionate with the sea for all of his life, Savas became a diver and founded the first diving school in Rhodes back in the early 1980s. Since then, he has been training divers in Rhodes and Athens for the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI), ANDI and SSI. He has also worked as an ichthyologist in Rhodes hydrobiological station and composed numerus scientific studies such as that for Simian Shrimp (Plesionika narval).
In 2007 Savas founded Blutopia Marine Park off the west coast of the island of Rhodes near the islet of Makri where he also runs a successful sea bream and sea bass fish farm unit.
Sava’s vision has been to combine tourism with education, fun, adventure and the promotion of a greater appreciation for the earth’s fascinating natural marine habitats. His dream became true with Blutopia Marine Park, Greece’s first marine ecotourism park that combines all these features in the stunning and unspoiled marine ecosystem of western Rhodes.
