First time for me so I was a bit nervous but the crew was extremely reassuring and clear on instructions from start to finish. They all were extremely nice and welcoming as well informative with all the history. Definitely a great experience, Definitely recommend trying, and I would do it all over again with the same crew. They were awesome!

Thanks for the experience

The organizers were also very helpful in picking me up at the hotel. I would have gladly moved the reservation to a day more suitable for the weather conditions but I preferred to do the diving anyway. We have reviewed the safety, communication and fundamental tests for any mask and snorkel problems once immersed at minimum depth. The dive is under the coast, between volcanic rocks and sand terraces. The seabed is rich in life and several varieties of passing fish can be seen. I will definitely contact Andrea on the next occasion in Catania
