Extraordinary experience, for two big reasons: seeing for the first time the underwater world and also doing it with a professional crew. If you grew up watching Little Mermaid, Atlantis or Aquaman and if you know you've always loved the sea, then you must dive in it, at least once in your lifetime. (one more "if": not being claustrophobic). And I totally recommend doing it with this company. Andrea and his colleagues were great : organized, attentive, patient to hear all your questions, funny and engaging.

A highlight of our time in Ortigia. The captain and guide could not have been nicer. We sailed and saw beautiful sights and even had the opportunity to go swimming. The food and wine was an excellent end to an amazing trip. We could not more highly recommend this experience.

A very nice moment of relaxation. Swimming in crystal clear waters. Explanations of the places (good, especially in Italian but the boat driver tried explanations in English, that's always it...) I'll do it again!

Very helpful with a nervous daughter. Explained everything clearly at the start and accompanied us closely to ensure we were comfortable and safe. The dive site was great with lots of fish. Would definitely recommend.

Rosario was a great instructor and we had an amazing time!
