We were two friends who had organised weeks beforehand via emails and whatsapp to go diving in Scopello. I contacted the guy the day before to confirm appointments, only to discover then he couldn't gather enough people, so we couldnt go diving. He offers us to join another group the day after in Castellamare. The appointment was 14.30 at the harbour. We arrive at 14.35, couldnt see them. I phone the guy to see where they were and he tells me they had left already !! He wouldn't admit to it, but I'm guessing he gave me the wrong time !! I don't recommend to organise anything with them as they are absolutely not reliable.

Did two dives (wreck & cave) which were both good. Although the centre is in Scopello the meeting point is at the harbour in Castellammare. Friendly and helpful instructors/guides. Would dive with them again and recommend.

This is THE best center where to book a diving or snorkelling excursion in the whole area from Castellamare (point of departure) to Scopello and the Zingaro reserve. Elisa, easilybreachable at her office in center Scopello, is there to help to tailor the best experience adapted to your needs (and combine that with what others are asking for!). Their boats are solid and well taken care of; perfectly fit for these dives not far from the shore (but eventually deep). The diving and snorkelling material they provide is above average. And you are also entitled to taste wonderful peaches fresh from the local market! And as this is a review of the Center... I’ll skip all the praise of the beauty to be seen while snorkelling or dive in that protected area.
