What a wonderful feeling to be able to breathe underwater. Andrea and all his staff are exceptional, they don't leave you even for a moment. Highly recommended


You can't describe what it feels like to breathe underwater. Andrea and Guerriero are fantastic and make it all with a unique simplicity. If you go to Catania, look for them who will make you live a unique emotion


Disappointing. Trip was cancelled 3,5 hours before the start due to “bad weather conditions”. It was 20 Celsius, with no wind nor rain. It was warm and sea was calm. We have spend 2,5 hours via bus from Palermo and later another train 1 hour on public transport just to see that nobody is waiting for us at the meeting point. The staff didn’t event bother to make sure we got the information, we just got info by email. They didn’t even apologise for the situation.


Was the only one to go diving that day, so I had a personal tour. Due to my prior diving experience, we went a bit deeper than the tour guide originally planned (as they thought I was a beginner). Quickly got into the suit for deeper diving and enjoyed the tour. My girlfriend went snorkelling and it was a good experience to combine like this if you have timeslots on the same day/time.

Excellent time spent with Andrea! It was our first dive, he provided very clear explanations and accompanied us from start to finish. Magical moment underwater with Andrea's constant supervision. He is a passionate, human and attentive instructor. I recommend 100%!!


Esperienza fantastica! Sono stata 3 giorni a Lampedusa con loro, tutto ben organizzato dal check in in aeroporto, alle immersioni, al giro in gommone dell' isola e alla cena finale a base di pesce tutti insieme. Le guide sempre gentili e presenti, non fanno mai mancare divertimento e simpatia. Consigliatissimi 🥰


Andrea è un Grande! Un istruttore di grande esperienza! Rende l’esperienza del Diving accessibile a tutti e per tutti i livelli. Ottima organizzazione di tutta l’esperienza in Sicilia! Transfer dall’aeroporto, alloggi, attrezzatura, pranzi e cene eccezionali. Lo consiglio vivamente a gruppi che vogliono avere tutto ben organizzato e pianificato! Complimenti Ragazzi! A presto.


Wir buchten über unser B&B einen Tauchausflug. Wir haben beide noch überhaupt keine Erfahrung mit dem Tauchen, uns wurde aber versichert, das sei kein Problem. Abgeholt wurden wir wie vereinbart um 8:30 Uhr vor unserem B&B in Catania. Von dort aus wurden wir vom Chef persönlich zum kleinen Hafen in Acicastello gebracht. Dort erhielten wir unsere Ausrüstung und wurden an Bord eines kleinen Bootes geführt. Das Unternehmen besitzt zwei Boote, ein größeres und das kleine, wobei man in das Gebiet in welches wir gebracht wurden, nur mit dem kleinen fahren kann. Nach etwa einer Viertelstunde Fahrt kamen wir an und erhielten eine kurze Einweisung in die Regeln die es beim Tauchen einzuhalten gibt. Leider habe ich den Namen unseres Tauchlehrers vergessen. Er wies uns ausführlich auf die Regeln und Gefahren beim Tauchen hin und erklärte uns sehr genau, wie wir uns zu verhalten haben. Das gab vorab schon ein gutes und sicheres Gefühl. Nun erhielten wir unsere Taucherbrillen und Flossen und gingen ins Wasser. Dort wurde uns die Weste mit Sauerstoffflasche angelegt. Wir übten kurz das Atmen mit dem Regulator und wiederholten die vereinbarten Handzeichen und schon ging es runter. Wir tauchten nicht sehr tief, da wir ja noch keinerlei Erfahrung hatten, sahen aber trotzdem viele Meeresbewohner wie z.B. Seesterne, Seeigel und einige viele Fische und Schwärme. Nach einer gefühlten Ewigkeit unter Wasser (Tauchen ist anstrengender als gedacht) gingen wir wieder an Bord des Bootes und wurden nun noch etwas entlang der Küste bis zu einem kleinen Dorf gefahren, wo man an der Klippe Frischwasserquellen vom Schmelzwasser des Etna beobachten konnte. Unser Tauchguide erklärte auf der Fahrt sehr viel über die Mythologie und die Geschichte von Sizilien und dem Etna. Auf der Rückfahrt hielten wir noch kurz in einer weiteren Bucht an, um nochmal kurz schwimmen zu gehen und uns zu erfrischen. Zusätzlich gab es noch eine Melone spendiert. Die Fahrt zurück zu unserem B&B war danach auch noch inklusive. Alles in allem war das ein wirklich toller Ausflug, wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt, alle Leute des Unternehmens waren sehr nett und wir können den Trip so wie er ist nur weiterempfehlen! Vielen Dank für den tollen Tag und diese wirklich gelungene erste Taucherfahrung!!
