An excellent half day at sea with Vittorio and Giuseppe! They provided excellent snorkelling gear and we saw lots of wonderful fish! It was nice to get some local history as well! They were fun and accommodating, definitely went the extra mile! A must do!!

It was one of the best days in Sicily. We took plenty of photos and saw beaches only accessible by water. A must do.

One of the best experiences of our Sicily trip! Vittorio and Andrea were charming, knowledgeable, funny and accommodating in every way, and showed us the best of the Castellemare del Golfo region from the best possible vantage point: the sea. Cold, crisp local wine, water and fresh fruit were provided, as well as snorkeling gear; the boat has a bimini top for shade but you'll want to cover up with sunscreen and a hat as the sun is relentless. The boat leaves from the busy port town of Castellemare del Golfo, which gets packed on the weekends, so follow Vittorio's instructions to the letter and get there an hour before departure to avoid the usual Sicilian parking circus, and you can be sipping a cappuccino while everyone else is scrambling to find a spot. But even if you arrive later, there are quite a few paid parking lots nearby (although you'll be a little farther from the departure point).

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.

Very friendly host, not bad looking on the eyes, and he has a lot of information. We had a very fun experience with Vittorio.
He also provided a very nice wine and grapes.

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.

The communication from Elisa with details on how to get to the site given and easy to follow . There were 7 off us with varied degrees of experience on a packed boat with two other experienced divers two instructors and a rib driver. The Boat was a bit overcrowded and not big enough to move around freely and kit not organised but the dives were exciting and provided a unique experience. Elisa was professional and was keen that it was a memorable experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day out with them and will remember this experience.
