What people are saying about Province of Catania

The guide Andrea is a fantastic man! He takes the time to explain a lot about the region and the volcano, which is very nice. In addition, you can also ask him other things about the rest of your stay, here you will get good tips. The snorkeling itself is great fun too! The guide tells a lot about the underwater world and shows different animals. We could stay in the water as long as we wanted.

It was a great trip. The boat was a little on the smaller size for how many people were on it. The 1st water spot was amazing and full of fish and coral the second spot was just rock and water not a lot of fish. They did not provide life jackets so if you aren’t an amazing swimmer or have low energy it would be hard.

We had a lovely time. The guide was incredibly nice and took a lot of time to explain everything to us. After snorkeling we even had a small lunch while watching the sun set. It was beautiful. Can recommend this tour!

Anna is a great guide. As a local, she knows a lot about Catania and filled the three hours perfectly. We got a perfect overview of Catania as a city and were able to taste delicious Sicilian dishes. :)

Nice experience with good guidance. Highly recommended!
